HOBOKEN, N.J. -- Although information technology budgets and resources continue to grow, important organizational problems in the function remain and may even be worsening, according to a major new survey of chief information officers. IT's lack of alignment with overall business remains a festering problem, the survey says; and business unit integration of IT is still far off.
Jerry Luftman, Professor of Information Services Programs at Stevens Institute of Technology, today released the results and ramifications of his 2006 Survey of Chief Information Officers, conducted this summer.
The survey of 140 senior-level information officers at corporations in a range of industries was sponsored by the Society for Information Management (SIM) and administered and interpreted by Professor Luftman. The results were released today at a SIM conference in Dallas, Texas
Luftman's survey report elaborates on the following findings and insights:
IT and business alignment remain the very top concern of IT executives. Despite all the resources and technological innovation that the IT function benefits from, the needle hasn't moved in years on the state of alignment with the overall business.
