What Are the Top CIO Priorities for Recruiting?

Finding the right IT resources means spending hours sifting through resumes and conducting interviews. At the same time, you have to complete the day-to-day tasks of leading an IT team. In order to attract strong talent, you also need a positive workplace culture.

According to a recent report released by Robert Half, 80% of 2,800 U.S. tech employers surveyed found recruiting to be a major challenge. That’s because job demand outstrips supply in key areas like data science and analytics.

How Can CIOs Keep Up with New Technologies?

CIOs also prioritize hot technologies such as AI in 2020. Recognizing that product life cycles are ever-shortening, many are moving fast so that the finished project remains relevant for years to come.

Reliance on data is likely to expand throughout 2020. Automating repetitive tasks can help you leverage your staff to provide valuable analysis instead of performing rote tasks.

It’s also essential to implement advances in cybersecurity, data science, and AI. Sydney Technology Solutions has network engineers and cybersecurity specialists that can evaluate your current systems and suggest layers of protection such as firewalls and 24-hour monitoring.

What Training Concerns Do CIOs Have?

Forward-thinking CIOs include cybersecurity awareness and staying on top of the latest technology among their 2020 priorities. Sydney Technology Solutions can provide cybersecurity experts to run an email test to determine which employees pose the greatest risk for a data breach. These employees need cybersecurity awareness training more than their peers. Other training opportunities and costs include certifications in key hardware and software assets.

What’s New in Automation?

Automation tools augment workers’ efforts and can increase productivity. Automation tools include a diversity of assets from hardware and software tools to robots and smart devices.

Automating manual processes is a win for everybody and gives team members an opportunity to free up time for critical thinking tasks.

What About Cybersecurity?

In the Robert Half report, CIOs expressed concern over cybersecurity. Thanks to the headlines on hackers and data breaches in 2019, CIOs are outsourcing this critical role to reliable third-party IT companies.
