Pity the poor retail CIO. They know what they have to do, but often don't have the resources or organizational alignment to pull it off (who does, exactly?).

That retail CIOs struggle is the conclusion of a new study from Tata Consulting entitled "The Global agenda of Retail CIOs" based on interviews with "192 senior business and IT executives at global retailers." Forrester Consulting conducted the survey.

Almost two thirds of CIOs say cyber threat resources under funded

CIOs have long complained about too few resources, but where it hurts the most is security.

Indeed, 62% of CIOs said in a recent survey that they do not have enough resources people to fend off cyber attacks. With the recent massive theft of credit card data, one wonders if this will change. Surely at Target and Nieman Marcus!

It's nice to dream, but in the end, delivering on a cloud and Big Data strategy is up to the drive and resourcefulness of the CIO, says Enterprise CIO Forum community manager John Dodge.

2014 State of the CIO exudes optimism

Can 722 CIOs be wrong?

Quick Post by,

This 10-slide State of the CIO presentation nicely summarizes the CIO agenda for 2014. Starting with last year's State of the CIO survey, this presentation also strikes a strong note of optimism for the oft-buffeted C level position.

Among other things, it addresses CIO reporting structure, compensation and priorities. It also wonders aloud if "traditional CIOs" are morphing into "digital strategists."

As the New Style of IT drives the forces of Cloud, Mobility, Security and Big Data various ways across global enterprises, I wonder about 2014. While the industry has continued to adopt these paradigms and related technologies in recent years, 2014 is the year when their multi-faceted characteristics come to a head; forcing enterprises and their constituents to be relevant. Enterprises must answer the question of the year of 2014 – Are they relevant? Join me as I take a look at what it means to be relevant in 2014.

This lengthy CIO.com feature by veteran reporter Kim Nash examines the difference between the traditional (read: old) CIO who oversees IT as a cost center and those resurgent CIOs who've emerged as chief digital strategists.

Indeed, the 13th annual State of the CIO research reveals that 25% are thriving as "true business peers." That's a quarter of the 722 CIOs surveyed.

Economic growth should accelerate next year: PIMCO

But IT spending growth is being revised downward: Sanford Bernstein

I just read two different views about the economy in 2014.

The WSJ cited a Sanford Bernstein report revealing that IT spending growth could drop from an anticipated 3-4% to 2%. That conclusion was based on a survey of 105 CIOs, who also closely watched spending this year. The revised number stems from the fact that CIOs don't really believe the global economy has fully recovered from the last meltdown.
