About the Logicalis CIO Report 2023

The 1,000 global technology leaders who took part in our most recent survey are playing a leading role in delivering a digital-first future. 

And the expectations of CIOs have never been higher.

A tough market demands innovation, along with growth and efficiency. Having spent decades delivering just this within the IT organisation, it’s time for the CIO to step out on a broader stage and show the business how to unlock its full potential.

A short message from Toby

Quote from Toby Alcock

As we've seen in our 2023 results, the role of a CIO is evolving, becoming a bigger part of the strategic leadership team within the business. The trend towards a more strategic CIO role that we observed in our 2017 report has accelerated rapidly. The growing field of influence at board level is giving rise to a bolder leadership style, helping organisations to reimagine customer and employee experiences. 2023 is shaping up to be a year of possibilities for CIOs
