Our CIO-driven agenda addresses regional issues with local peer groups that share the same challenges.  The 2017 draft agenda is now available, please see below:

Key Findings for Nordic CIOs

  • On average, Nordic CIOs are more likely to be part of a digital ecosystem than their global peers. However, they are likely to have fewer digital ecosystem partners and take a more transactional role in the ecosystem.
  • Nordic CIOs report an application portfolio that is on average significantly older than top performers among their global peers. Furthermore, while Nordic CIOs are well aware of the disruptive technologies and their potential impact, actual investment patterns seems tilted toward renovation activities, in particular, ERP and their own data centers.
  • Nordic CIOs consider skills shortages as their largest barrier to success, with one out of three respondents reporting this.
  • Overall, Nordic CIOs are well-aligned with business priorities and among top performers in terms of cost-efficiencies.
