2011 Global IT Leadership Report
Going into 2012, our latest survey reveals that although CIO's remain responsive to economic developments and market fluctuations, they have switched from survival mode to carefully planning for business stability and preparing for potential growth. Cloud computing is at the heart of this strategy, enabling enterprise IT departments to transform into agile, responsive drivers of innovation.
After an extensive global survey of 480 CIOs, CTOs, IT Directors and Heads of IT in the UK, USA, France, Germany and Singapore from enterprise organisations, Savvis is pleased to present Strategies for Change, an in-depth research report that examines the strategic priorities of these companies.
