The Launch of the 2019 Harvey Nash / KPMG CIO Survey in Sydney

Held at International Towers Sydney, our annual CIO event welcomed more than 100 CIOs and technology leaders to hear the results of the 2019 Harvey Nash / KPMG CIO Survey.

Our photographer was there to capture it all. Take a look in our dedicated photo album.

We were delighted to be joined by our panel, chaired by Bridget Gray, Managing Director of Harvey Nash Australia. The panel was made up of:

Also in attendance was Guy Holland of KPMG. You can watch an interview with Guy here.

6 things we learnt on the night...

  • A time of massive change. 44% of organisations expect to change their product/service offering or business model in a fundamental way in the next 3 years
  • Technology doesn't stop evolving. Organisations are continuing to invest in emerging technology - 1 in 20 are currently investing in quantum computing, for example.
  • The rise of business-managed IT. Almost two-thirds of organisations allow business-managed IT investment, and approximately 1 in 10 actively encourage it
  • Up to 1 in 5 jobs will go to robots. Typically, survey respondents believe around 10% of their organisation's workforce will be replaced within 5 years by AI / automation
  • Relentless rise of cyber-crime levels out? After tracking the growth of cyber-crime and confidence in dealing with the threat for some years, this is the first time the incidences have levelled out and confidence has grown
  • CIOs: ready for disruption. Not only is technology disrupting sectors, it's disrupting the role of the technology leader too. Executive board membership is down, and an explosion of new job titles and roles have occurred, from Chief Digital Officer to Chief Data Officer and beyond
