Gartner Survey Finds EMEA CIOs More Likely to Scale Digital Initiatives Than Respondents in Other Regions
Analysts Present Findings From the Gartner 2019 CIO Agenda Survey at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2018, 4-8 November in Barcelona, Spain
Digital business has reached a tipping point in EMEA, with 35 per cent of CIOs surveyed in EMEA being in a position to scale their digital initiatives, an increase from 20 per cent last year, according to Gartner, Inc.’s annual global CIO survey.
“EMEA CIOs are setting the example when it comes to harvesting the results of digital initiatives,” said Andy Rowsell-Jones, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner.“Success at evolving endeavours to scale is higher in EMEA than among their CIO counterparts in North America, Latin America and Asia/Pacific. In addition, to encourage the application of “digital” at scale within their organisation, 64 per cent of EMEA CIOs fostered better collaboration with the business, and 46 per cent reduced silos and internal complexity.”
