CIOs look beyond the boundaries of the enterprise to simplify business processes and generate real-time insights up and down the value chain.

Beyond the delivery of basic IT services and business process improvements, Transform mandate CIOs are helping their public and private sector organizations fundamentally rethink the way they understand and interact with customers and partners alike. One key to extending the enterprise's reach is the use of "Big Data"—the vast volumes captured, for example, from instruments like sensors or RFID tags or data gleaned in real-time from millions of Web-based transactions.
