IT leaders don’t think they’re quite on par with other C-level executives, but very few believe the role will disappear, according to new research by CIO Insight.

Check out the responses, and tell us what you think in our comments section, or e-mail us at editors@cioinsight.com.

CIOs’ strong endorsement of McDonald’s comment shows they feel they do make a difference. That sentiment echoed the findings of CIO Insight‘s January research report on customer strategies.
