1CIOs Cite Company Culture as Top Barrier to Technology Innovation
Intro: A small minority of CIOs and IT directors perceive their organization as a “digital innovator,” according to a recent survey from Logicalis. The resulting “Global CIO Survey 2017–2018” report reveals that survey respondents are most likely to cite their company’s culture as a major barrier to their ongoing digital transformation efforts, in addition to budget limitations. The report covers a wide range of additional technology trends and topics, including the internet of things (IoT), software development and ransomware, which has emerged as a top security threat, according to survey respondents. A total of 890 global CIOs and IT directors took part in the research. The following slide show presents survey highlights, with charts provided by Logicalis.
