CIOs claim more corporate influence

Chief information officers (CIOs) in the
UK believe they play an increasingly strategic role over the past 12 months,
according to a major survey by
Harvey
Nash
and KPMG.

Nearly half of the CIOs surveyed have seats on the board, with this number
rising from 43% to 46%, while nearly 60% said their roles were well integrated
into the business, an 18% increase over last year.

Three quarters of CIOs (76%) said their role is more strategy focussed, with
66% expanding their roles to cover logistics, business continuity and corporate
change management.
