10 Trends Sure to Impact CIOs in 2013

The Increasing Importance of Smartphones
Apple's iPhone, Android-based handsets and a host of other products are slated to increase their presence in the enterprise. As CIOs have been learning, smartphones are central to the corporate world's growth.

The IT world is changing. From new products to an increasing reliance on mobile devices to big data, CIOs are finding that many things in the office aren't the way they used to be. Some CIOs are fine with that and believe that change is a good thing, while others think that change is at the center of many of the productivity and security issues companies are facing. But if anything is certain, it's that change will continue to affect the corporate world, so it's time to stop looking back and peer into the future. 2013 is going to be a huge year for the enterprise. Technology is improving at a rapid rate, and CIOs have no choice but to respond. Unfortunately, the business world no longer allows IT decision-makers to dictate the future. These days, technology leaders are being forced to adapt to the changing times. What might those changing times deliver in the next year? The following slides cover the trends that are likely to affect CIOs in 2013.
