The digitization has arrived at board level - and this in a hitherto unprecedented scale.
For 18 years, the global CIO study highlights trends and developments in IT annually. Approximately 3,300 CIOs and IT managers from more than 80 countries took part in this year's study. Therefore, the CIO Study is one of the largest industry studies worldwide. Key message of this year's survey: The digitization has arrived at board level - and this in a hitherto unprecedented scale.
KPMG: "The times when CIOs were booked in the company under an “also-ran” are over clearly. Personnel decisions in the CIO area are now being made increasingly on the Board level. At the same time, we observe that more and more CIOs report directly to their CEOs. All this demonstrates the strong growing importance of CIOs for the digitization strategy of each company."
What should CIOs be capable of, what are they dealing with? As they make the digital transformation in their organizations, to which departments they can rely on - and where it falls short yet. These are some of the issues, the current CIO study employed.
