CIO Survey – what do you think?

| 13th June 2016 | No Comments

As regular readers of CXO Unplugged will know, Logicalis has conducted an annual global survey of CIO pressures and priorities since 2013.

These studies have been highly effective in uncovering the trends and opportunities that, when realised, can transform IT departments from backroom cost centres to services-led partners to internal line-of-business (LOB) customers.

For example, in 2013, the CIO survey revealed that 60 per cent of CIO respondents believed LOB managers would gain more power over IT decision-making in the next three to five years.

A year later, the 2014 CIO survey, which polled top IT pros in 24 countries, showed this to be true: One in four CIOs admitted they had lost control of information and communication technology (ICT) spending and acknowledged that the balance of power in ICT spending had already shifted decisively toward line-of-business executives.

Last year, the 2015 CIO survey found the trend accelerating.  Shadow IT was a reality for 90% of CIOs, with almost one third (31%) of CIOs globally routinely side-lined when it comes to making IT purchasing decisions.
