Now in its 18th year, the Harvey Nash / KPMG CIO Survey is the largest global IT leadership survey in the world, with almost 3,400 responses from CIOs and technology leaders across 82 countries. This year’s findings reveal an undeniable increase in influence and opportunity for the CIO. On the cusp of the fourth industrial revolution, we are seeing the emergence of the ‘Creative CIO’ – a transformational business leader, technology strategist and business model innovator.
The focus has moved from ‘keeping the lights on’ to creating business value, harnessing the social and technical disruption all around. The Creative CIO is at the forefront of digital change, both driving it and responding to it with new technologies, delivery models and governance approaches.
