Woman in Tech of the Week (6/28/17)
Wendy Pfeiffer, Chief Information Officer, Nutanix Inc.
Digital transformation is introducing more than new technologies to enterprises. Data monetization and digital consumption models are bringing business people and techies into closer collaboration. While they stretch to adopt methods and tools like virtualization, cloud computing and big data analytics, individuals themselves must grow to match the changes.
Many demands of digitization have fallen on the Chief Information Officer’s shoulders — increasing agility via developer operations and fleshing out a partner ecosystem among them. The new CIO role can span a lot of ground, but some emerging domains, like big data strategy, require full-time overseers, according to Wendy Pfeiffer, chief information officer at Nutanix Inc.
“Sometimes we come to the table and we understand how to monetize data; sometimes we come to the table and we know how to efficiently manage operations,” she said of CIOs and other C-level executives.
Even as the CIO role shape-shifts, some duties remain constant, Pfeiffer told Dave Vellante (@dvellante) and Stu Miniman (@stu), co-hosts of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile livestreaming studio, during the the Nutanix .NEXT event in Washington, D.C.
This week, theCUBE spotlights Wendy Pfeiffer in our Women In Tech feature.
