After a year like 2020, when COVID-19 forced businesses to adapt to new work-from-home environments and boost revenue through digital business capabilities, businesses are turning to their IT leaders—now seen as frontline business leaders—as key players with the skills, tools, and insights necessary to drive real revenue growth, expand the business, and build solid brand infrastructures. Modern companies need strategic IT players who are highly tuned to the needs of their business and, just as important, understand how to steer and drive that critical change.
