So Long CIO, Welcome CCSO.
How cool is that for a Job Title?
Seems like the CIO job at a company of managing business's information is expanding towards one that would require additional responsibility of designing IT operations as services that can be consumed and paid for internally and externally. CCSOs might oversee the use of subscription services and might design their systems and networks to be used by others for subscription purposes.
Cant agree more with Mark Everett Hall of CompterWorld that the arrival of CCSOs (or whatever they end up being called) will be the ultimate recognition by business that IT is less and less about systems, software or even the information they support, and more about the services those tools bring to an organization.
