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.

Neil Ward-Dutton

I'm passionate about helping organisations get real business benefits from the investments they want to make in IT. I love technology, and I've seen it used to amazing effect - but I hate waste, and I've seen so many organisations waste their investments. Over the past 10 years as the Research Director at MWD Advisors I've gained invaluable experience working with clients across many industries, learning about what works and where people come unstuck in trying to drive business change with technology. I've advised on technology strategy and business change management across Europe, and presented at dozens of conferences on these topics around the world.
