CIOs are more confident of securing technology budget increases than at any time in the last five years, according to the CIO Technology Survey 2012.


 Main findings:


  • Increasing budgets: 44 percent of global CIOs saw a budget increase this year; the highest proportion since 2007, and a leap from 39 percent in 2011 and 28 percent in 2010.
  • Leap in demand for digital and mobile solutions: Digital media is firmly on the CIO's agenda with 58 percent of global CIOs actively promoting the development of solutions for smartphones and tablets such as iPads.
  • Demand for improving time-to-market: Of the areas of focus for CIOs, the category that grew the most in 2012 was Improving Time-to-Market, underlining the importance of growth and expansion planning.
  • Profit focus: More than half of CIOs (56 percent) say projects that make money from technology rather than save money are the priority. 
  • Outsourcing plays a bigger role.
  • Multi sourcing in vogue.
  • CIO role is changing and increasing in importance.
  • Strategic influence of the CIO continues to grow.
