Infographic: The Changing Role of the CIO

Five of the 10 top-paid CIOs at fortune 500 companies are women, and that's just one of the more interesting points made by this infographic featured in this post by Amy Tennery. The infographic comes from Wikibon, and also features overall information about the CIO role (such as CIOs being accountable for up to 21% savings for businesses each year). The infographic goes on to explain that the top 6% of CIOs spend more time on business (46%), and less time on IT (54%) than their counterparts. Furthermore, the influence and cost savings of the cloud becomes immensely apparent, with 80% of CIOs indicating that they'd like to get at least some of their infrastructure delivered through a private cloud.
