Digital transformation requires close collaboration among CIOs ancl their LOB peers. Each stakeholder brings skills, knowledge, and resources that collectively power transformation initiatives. But to succeed, relationships have to weather inevitable challenges. For that to happen. ClOs must be able to effectively communicate and work with LOB executives. They also need strong communication skills to help inspire innovation in business un rn while championing the importance of security, integration, and scalability.

Key Takeaways:
