Each year Gartner surveys CIOs to gather data about company strategies, IT budgets and priorities, digital initiatives and industry-specific topics. Life science CIOs participate in this survey and our analyst team added questions for these CIOs to offer their unique perspective. Recently we published an early peek at these results.
Here at Gartner, we are often asked how industry peers lead their IT teams and drive organizational change using advanced technology. The CIO survey is a great opportunity to learn, analyze and benchmark your leadership approach and how your company compares to other organizations. Life science leaders, IT and business, consider their challenges to be unique due to high levels of regulation, a complex supply chain and the need for continuous innovation. Each of these challenges is considerable, but life science leaders can learn from other industry leaders also dealing with major obstacles, barriers, and innovation needs. Life science CIOs can leverage these insights to “hurdle” over their own IT challenges.
Summary: Gartner’s CIO Survey reveals opportunities to optimize 2018 IT initiative portfolios. Life science CIOs must overcome their greatest challenge — ensuring business-IT alignment — by linking IT initiatives with top strategic business priorities.
