HARVEY NASH / KPMG CIO SURVEY 2018: THE TRANSFORMATIONAL CIO

In last year’s survey, Harvey Nash and KPMG reported
how CIOs were holding a steady line in the face of
global uncertainty, cutting costs and refining business
processes. Whilst much of this geopolitical instability
remains, this year’s report shows how CIOs are
benefiting from bigger budgets and headcount growth.
Indeed, more IT leaders are enjoying budget increases
than we have seen in the last thirteen years of reporting.


This move back into action has been driven by a
combination of factors. Investment in digital and
cloud continues at a pace, but this year we also see
data privacy, governance and security draw the
attention of boards. Not all technology budget now
sits within IT. Investment in 'shadow IT' is growing
and as more business functions take control of their
own IT spend, CIOs must adjust and think smart about
how they control and influence technology within
the business.
