CIO Survey – The Changing Shape of IT


Digital technologies are more intertwined with business products, services, processes and models intertwined than ever. Whether you want to explore the impacts of cloud platforms, machine learning, robotic automation, citizen developers or DevOps (or any of a dozen other things) it’s easy to see that the opportunities, challenges and expectations for corporate IT groups are all changing fast. We invited people who self-identified themselves as fulfilling a leadership role in a corporate IT setting to complete a short online survey. We wanted to explore how corporate IT groups are responding today across different industries and locations. Our survey ran over six weeks in March and early April 2017. It attracted 65 respondents, with a good spread across industry sectors (including education, public sector and not-for-profit, technology, and transport). The demographics of the survey group are shown in the Appendix section at the end of this report.
