2022 CXO Tech Agenda
The 2022 CXO Tech Agenda is the fifth in a series of surveys conducted globally among CEOs & CIOs that examines the dynamic between these two executives roles and what type of technologies firms are prioritizing in order to remain competitive and grow their businesses.
While the 2021 iteration focused on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of remote work, this iteration returns to a more tech-focused approach and examines changes in budgets, prioritization of emerging technologies (AI, ML, cloud computing) as well as environmental sustainability.
- 1. CXOs consider advancements in technology to be the biggest driver in company transformation and because of this, new tech adoption has risen to the top of many company’s priorities
- 2. Companies remain in COVID-recovery mode, & that coupled with new tech adoption has driven 2022 budgets higher across an array of products & services, including AI, IoT, cloud, collab tech & cybersecurity.
- 3. Many CXOs have become more ESG conscious and are trying to find balance between increasing revenue and adopting environmentally friendly practices
- 4. New vendor consideration is influenced by a number of different factors – CXOs turn to brand advertising, events, case studies & thought leadership to learn about prospective tech partners
