Welcome to the Global CIO Survey findings for 2013. We are especially excited about this year’s results as it includes a meaningful representation across Africa.

With responses from over 700 Chief Information Officers 36 countries around the globe, the survey provides insight into theopportunities and challenges which CIO’s face on a daily basis.

The results vary as expected between regions, industries and types of businesses but what remains most striking is the consistency in the issues faced by CIO’s across the world.

1. The sectional theme highlights for the Deloitte CIO Survey 2013;

Our report explores:

  • Business partnering – how are IT functions expected to deliver business value  and how far are they meeting these expectations?
  • Talent and capabilities – do CIOs have the right teams with the right capabilities to fulfil business needs?
  • Innovation – to what extent is innovation being driven by IT in business today and  where can CIOs add real business value through innovation-driving technologies?
  • CIO career – how satisfied are CIOs in their role today and where do they see their careers heading next?
