Top CIO Management and Planning Priorities
The top 10 concerns are the areas of focus for CIO and enterprises:
- Access Management - Network management and control now have an even greater role than before. In January, 69% of the individual interviewed placed that in the top ten. Now it is priority for 89%.
- Work From Home - Was not even on the radar in January at 7% (not a high priority) and now 87% place it in the top 10.
- Mobile Computing - Mobile and end user computing require applications to be outward facing, functional on a myriad of devices, and user friendly for WFH staffers. Now is a priority for 85% of the interviewees versus 76% in January.
- Blockchain, ERP, and Cloud - Moved down the priority list from 85% to 75% .
- Social Media Impact - remained about the same with 75% to 78%
- Security and Hacking - Internal and external threats are on the increase, especially as enterprises continue to increase the growth of mobile and wireless based applications. In both periods surveyed this was a top ten priority by 73% of the individuals interviewed.
- Staffing - That was the top priority in January at 95% saying it was a priority to 63% saying that it was something that needs to be focused on. A number of the CFOs in the survey noted that they may need to let some non-critical IT professionals go if the re-opening of the US market is slow.
- Skills for New Technologies - Along with staffing this now is a lower priority. The focus has shifted from new technologies except in the areas associated with the remote workforce.
- Risk Management - Remains in about the same position in priority as before.
- Data Privacy - With the rise of WFH, GDPR and CCPA data privacy is a top ten priority for 53% of the interviewees versus 42% in January.
- ROI on New Technology - Still important but has dropped out of the top 10 priority list with the emphasis on staying in business.
Janco has created a kit that contains tools which help an enterprise more easily manage each of the CIO priorities.
