CIO Jahrbuch 2024

The importance of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) in the digital age cannot be overstated, especially in the context of the advanced insights and predictions highlighted in the CIO Yearbook 2024.

The CIO Yearbook 2024 marks the 13th year that leading minds in the IT industry in Germany have shared their fascinating visions and ground-breaking bets on the future of information technology. This year, the editors have once again compiled an impressive range of opinions and predictions from some of the industry’s most influential CIOs and experts.

In this context, the importance of governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) in the digital age becomes even clearer. The CIO Yearbook 2024 takes a look at the specific challenges and opportunities facing the German market. The predictions from leading CIOs are nothing short of revolutionary: quantum computing will revolutionize pharmaceutical research by 2029, generative artificial intelligence (AI) will become the norm in companies and in the private sector, and even every public authority in Germany will have a CIO by 2029.

The rapid development of the technology landscape not only opens up significant opportunities, but also harbors new risks and challenges. This is where the relevance of GRC technologies, such as Swiss GRC’s GRC Toolbox, becomes particularly clear. These solutions not only enable companies and authorities to adapt quickly to new technologies, but also ensure that they operate in line with the latest trends and technologies without neglecting governance, risk management and compliance aspects.

Tobias Regenfuß’ prediction about the evolution of the CIO role to C-AI-Os underlines the increasing importance of GRC strategies. The integration of AI into business processes requires comprehensive monitoring, control and compliance, and the ethical aspects, data protection and security must not be ignored.

In this context, the CIO Yearbook 2024 is not just a source of information, but a guide to the future of technology. It is an indispensable tool for taking a deep dive into the visions and trends that are shaping the IT world. Make sure you get a copy:
