Job Title: Chief Information Officer
Location: New Taipei City, Taiwan
Report to: President / CEO
We’re currently looking for the Chief Information Officer (CIO) for a global leading network solution company.
Objective of this role: The CIO oversees the organization's information technology-related strategies and initiatives. Plans for the company's information technology needs and addresses related problems. Analyses information and communicates with other executive board members to make sure everyone stays on the same page. Helps the company move forward with advances in technology and methods of processing and managing information. Serves as a leader, innovator and integrator for the company's information technology department and for the company’s business.
Work closely with function leaders and management team to support their initiatives for short-term needs and long-term business growth
Expectations of this role
The CIO in his central role will act as a business innovator, as an integrator between legacy IT and agile IT, and as a service optimizer. In the future, the CIO will be more important than ever, however, with a changed understanding of roles. Because just technical management, including the operation of the IT and controlling the software development is no longer sufficient. The CIO has to play different roles in order to make his company fit for digitization.
The CIO, as an innovator, does not just focus on technology, but enables new digital business models. Ideally, together with the top management, the CIO is driving forward the digitization strategy, of course in close cooperation with the individual departments. IT is considered to be the main driver of important digital transformation issues such as IoT, advanced data analytics, and Digital Customer Experience.
The IT department must enable the agile and rapid development of applications and services, and also ensure a stable and reliable IT operation. Therefore, the future CIO is particularly in demand as an integrator and link between traditional IT and agile IT. To do this, he/she must build a new digital architecture and, at the same time, gradually modernize existing legacy IT in a longer-term process.
Technically, the CIO provides tools and frameworks for the fast and secure development of software and integrates external services into its own ecosystem with the help of a suitable interface strategy. Organizationally, the CIO interlinks the development and the IT operation in order to provide software faster and with as few errors as possible. Today only a few companies can master the challenges of digitization with the help of their internal IT. One way out for example is therefore the outsourcing of services to the cloud or the support of an external IT service provider. Here, the CIO is in demand as a service optimizer, who cares about intelligent sourcing as a service broker. He coordinates the different services and sourcing partners and links them with the internal IT.
Overall, the CIO optimizes the quality, security and performance of all services, contributing to the company's efficient business processes and business success.
