Preparing for what's next

CIOs rarely have time to rest.

To help CIOs keep pace with the latest developments and trends, we offer a mix of innovative thinking and practical advice for CIOs – all designed to help you turn new developments in the IT landscape into more value for your business.

2015 Global CIO Survey: Creating legacy

We recently embarked on a unique and personal research journey with more than 1,200 leading CIOs throughout the world. The analysis yielded important insights about how CIOs operate within the leadership ecosystems of the organizations they serve. We learned that CIOs are laser-focused on understanding how they’re creating impact today—and how they plan to deliver value in the future.

The research report reveals four key areas in which CIOs should operate to lead their organizations effectively and create successful careers:

  • Business priorities
  • Leadership and talent
  • Relationships
  • Investment priorities

Read the report to learn more about what’s top-of-mind for CIOs.
