"Discover How Top CIOs Create Value with the Global CIO Survey"

Few business roles are as challenging and complex as that of the CIO.

It's a position of tremendous responsibility, requiring both deep technical knowledge and excellent leadership skills. A capable CIO does for more than simply manage a company's technology needs. They create real value for their organizations.

Compiled from the survey responses of more than 1,200 CIOs at top firms in 48 countries, the 2016-2017 Global CIO Survey Executive Summary provides comprehensive insights into the fundamental nature of the job. This executive summary examines the priorities and mindsets of successful CIOs across the globe, from leading teams to generating revenue.
