Harvey Nash Sydney CIO Event

Over 100 of Sydney's brightest technology talent joined us and our panel of IT leaders to discuss the 2013 Harvey Nash CIO Survey results.

More than one in five CIOs believe that their direct control over technology has diminished since the start of the recession, whilst the proportion of companies where more than ten per cent of technology spend lies outside the control of the IT department has almost doubled to over 40 per cent in the last three years. Despite this, CIOs see their roles as growing in importance, but recognise their value is increasingly driven through collaboration and influence, rather than direct control.
This is according to the 15th Annual CIO Technology Survey 2013, conducted by Harvey Nash, presenting the views of more than 2,000 CIOs and technology leaders across twenty countries.

The 2013 Harvey Nash CIO Sydney Event discussed talent management, influence, collaboration, IT's relationships with the business, investment in innovation, the careers and remuneration of CIOs and women in IT. We were joined by over 100 CIOs, IT leaders and our panel for the event held on 15th August 2013:

  • Paul Jones, CIO of Qantas
  • Diane Fernley-Jones, CIO of Leighton Contractors
  • Tim Thurman, CIO of ASX
  • Kelly Ferguson, CIO of Mi9

The event newsletter is due to be released shortly and will include interviews with the panellists and photographs from the evening.

Didn't make it to the event but still want to learn about the insights? Get in touch with us and we can arrange a meeting to go through the results and what it means to be an Australian CIO in 2013.
