What challenges are CIOs facing today? ‘The Harvey Nash / KPMG CIO Study 2016’ is the largest global IT leadership survey and it set out to find answers to this question.
One of the study’s findings is that CEOs are more likely to advocate CIOs spending more time on projects that make money versus those that save money.
Other findings include:
- “More CIOs report directly to the CEO (34 percent) than at any time in the past decade, rising 10 percent over last year.”
- “CIOs with a direct report to the CEO are also the happiest (87 percent report job fulfilment).”
- “Women in senior IT leadership roles has risen by a third.”
- “One in five companies now employs a Chief Digital Officer, almost tripling the number since 2014.”
