Insights on the Evolving Role of CIOs in Higher Education

In an era of digital disruption, Gartner reports that “higher education is an information "industry," and the role of the CIO is at a crossroads.” In this report, Gartner presents the findings from its survey of more than 247 higher-ed CIOs. It also includes recommendations that we believe will help CIOs evolve their roles and execute a digital strategy with these goals:

  • Lead the higher education industry by examining the use of analytics and digital tools in other industries.
  • Differentiate their institution by identifying innovative technology and aligning it with their business priorities.
  • Create new job roles that will help facilitate their digital transformation.
  • Learn from the actions of the top performers in Gartner’s 2018 survey of more than 3000 CIOs.
