Top Ten Business and IT Priorities for 2013
A new survey of 2,053 global CIOs conducted by Gartner finds some interesting differences of opinion when it comes to the relative importance of business goals and technologies, such as business intelligence and mobile computing. A lot of these discrepancies serve to highlight the perennial debate over how to best align IT with business. For example, analytics and business intelligence are the top technology priority, but are only the ninth most important priority for the business. As usual, just about everybody seems to agree on what needs to be done, but they are not exactly sure what needs to be done first or which technology investments will best achieve their business goals.
