The 1992 founded Austin based Epicor Software Corporation is a business software company offering business software solutions to the manufacturing, distribution, retail and services industries.

The role of Chief Information Officer (CIO) first had a presence on the board of organizations in the eighties when companies, mainly in North America, such as Bank of America and American Airlines, first formalized the post. It was undoubtedly a monumental turning point in the history of IT leaders, putting them on par with other C-suite executives.

Technology, for the first time, became recognised as a critical part of business strategy. 35 years on, are we experiencing yet another tipping point where CIOs are not just implementers or influencers but are critically inspiring and transforming how businesses are run today?

With ERP taking a large share of the IT budget and playing a significant operational role in improving the speed and efficiency of processes for faster, better-informed decision-making, we have done our own research into the role of the changing CIO over the past year. What it tells us is that we're experiencing a moment of change.
