The end of June marks the halfway point in the calendar year and a good time to start thinking about the issues CIOs and IT executives will need to address in the coming five years. Each year Gartner Executive Programs conducts an annual CIO survey from September to December of each year. Last year’s survey included more than 1,500 companies from around the world.
The purpose of the survey is to understand the issues facing CIOs as part of Executive Programs member driven agenda. The widespread adoption of social computing including wiki’s and blogs, its run an experiment in open development and innovation.
Any investigation starts with having a good set of issues to explore. Given that the survey results are to benefit CIOs and IT executives, your participation in identifying the issues is a great start.
So please send an email to mark.mcdonald at Gartner.com and we will compile the list of issues.
There are no hard and fast rules here, a sentence or paragraph explaining the issue, its impact on business performance and the IT eco-structure (IT, vendors, service providers, etc)
While we cannot investigate every issue we will publish the list of issues (edited of course) on this blog as well as the high level results of the CIO survey for 2010.
Looking forward to seeing and sharing what is on your minds.
