    The CDO converts analog operations to digital ones, and is a leading influencer on mobility, social media, virtual goods and Web-based information management and marketing.

If you need further proof that technology trends such as mobility and the cloud have changed the face of business, then check out the following emerging IT job titles, which were compiled by Janco Associates. They reflect how organizations are overhauling traditional concepts about what people in the IT department are supposed to do. And they speak to an overall rise in demand for uniquely skilled IT professionals, as the once-rigid divide between tech operations and strategic planning continues to fade. "The management and direction of technology are no longer based within an ivory tower operation," says Victor Janulaitis, CEO of Janco. "Today, technology is ubiquitous with organizational strategies and operations. For example, the demand for someone to manage the rapidly changing digital sector in business often is beyond the scope and capabilities of the CIO. Thus, a new business role is created: the chief digital officer. We have also seen an increase in technology-based C-Level positions. As demand has increased for these roles, there has been an increase in the number of organizations that need precise job descriptions for them." This list is taken from the new Internet & Information Technology Position Descriptions HandiGuide from Janco, which compiles more than 260 current tech-based job descriptions.
