This article presents the findings of the Society for Information Management's 36th anniversary study. Overall, the study finds a major shift in the focus of IT executives. IT leadership is becoming more pragmatic, holistic, strategic and business-focused, while also working to optimize IT operations and services, with priorities like agility, innovation, time-to-market, security, strategy and the value of IT to the business. In the past year, CIOs report doubling the amount of time they spend on business priorities and strategy; and in the past 24 months, the frequency of their at least weekly interactions with C-suite peers has increased by between 31% and 200%.Click here for the online-only appendix (pdf).Click here for free classroom presentation slides (ppt).
