We are over a year into the pandemic. If Covid-19 is still the transformation driver you need to learn more about or expect more from your technology leadership. That shark has been jumped.

I'm very much of the view that covid-19 did not drive much digital transformation, if any.

It may have forced digital adoption, but transformation is more than just being able to work from home.

I also don't necessarily think the CIO/CTO drove it. DT is a business outcome, not a tech one (it's all about the people). The CIO/CTO may have facilitated some of the work to transform, but the itmist have been enabled by some clear opportunities to solve.

The results so far, CIO/CTO doing most of the driving, is a lot of the problem we face!!! It needs to be the CEO driving it.

Savvy CEOs understand that DT isn't about an IT strategy or digital technology . It's about leveraging evolving technologies to create and deliver more value .

I would argue it has a lot to do with changing the way a company behaves and focuses on the customer to deliver that value. As you say technology is an enabler.

Covid-19 make most companies work digitally. As you all know we are going through a pandemic time and it should be our first priority to save our nation by doing some small efforts, like using mask properly, making proper social distance, working from home.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.31%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.52%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.12%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
