Impacts and Recommendations

  • CIO investment priorities such as information, mobile, cloud and social reflect a desire to improve workplace agility
  • More than half of the CIOs surveyed are concerned that their organizations are ill prepared for a pivot to a digital economy, mandating a new approach — which we call the digital workplace — to energizing the workforce
  • At least 25% of technology spending occurs outside the consolidated IT budget, which creates new opportunities for CIOs to engage with business leaders
