Chief Information Officers
Chief information officers (CIOs), also known as information systems directors, are responsible for all aspects of their company's information technology. They use their knowledge of technology and business to determine how information technology can best be used to meet company goals—especially over the long term. This may include researching, purchasing, and overseeing set-up and use of technology systems, such as intranet, Internet, and computer networks. CIOs work for a variety of employers, including businesses, government agencies, libraries, and colleges and universities.
