CIOs Are Confident About the Digital Disruption ‘Edge’

The vast majority of CIOs and other business leaders anticipate that their organizations will be impacted by digital disruption over the next 10 years–and most of them believe this shift will give them an advantage over competitors, according to a recent survey from Harvey Nash and KPMG. The report, “CIO Survey 2015: Into an Age of Disruption,” lends insights on a wide range of relevant tech topics, including the state of talent recruitment, business strategy and overall IT priorities. Fortunately, as disruptive emerges as mainstream, CIOs said they’re successfully preparing for it with new cloud, mobility and collaboration initiatives. “The speed of technology is what’s driving IT today,” said Bob Miano, president and CEO of Harvey Nash USAPAC. “Disruption is the norm now, so it’s about how fast companies can innovate. Pressure to produce at an accelerated pace is felt across all vertical markets, and has direct ties to the talent war.” More than 3,690 global organizational decision-makers–the majority of them CIOs, CTOs and other tech leaders–took part in the research.
