Chief Information Officer
n. Abbr. CIO
The person within an organization that sets the strategic direction for use of technology and determines how technology can help an organization achieve its objectives at the lowest possible cost.

CIOs are becoming a small-business staple.1 Unfortunately, many organizations either think they have a CIO when, in fact, they don't, or they cannot afford one2.

Instead, they:
- rely on the advice of "hands-on" technical support personnel.
- rely on business managers who do not understand technology.

Allowing these people to make technology decisions often leads to wasting the business' money and frustrating the business with technology that does not do what the business wants.
