To thrive in this ever-changing environment, CIOs must transform collaboration, streamline supply chains, and find the right tools and systems to help their companies accelerate production speed. To get there, they must have three skill sets.

Today’s empowered CIOs can break down these barriers with these three skill sets: 

• Lead Strategic Business Innovation
• Harness the Power of Big Data
• Energize the Digitalization Process

From seamstress to semi-truck to storefront to smartphone, fashion operates in both the industrial age and at the speed of the ongoing digital revolution. Traditional production processes meet the real-time constraints of supply chain and distribution, eventually funneling into the bright world of retail stores and screens.
While the earliest evidence of this shift has been in the consumer-facing realm, forward-thinking IT leaders have the responsibility to spearhead the evolution of the fashion value chain. Poised to usher in a new era for the industry, their ability to identify the most relevant technological trends is as important as the drive for designers to innovate.
CIOs in the know already realize that digitalization unlocks new opportunities to collaborate, slash time to market and further streamline operations.
