It is not enough only to manage the internal demands of the day-to-day , but to continually improve to produce more and better .
The characteristics of the new CIO profile go beyond the technological and process management domain . The new CIO profile must include being a business leader , equal to the other executives from the company . This scenario directly affects what we call IT today . The name will probably change to BT , which demonstrates its integration into the main business .
