This year's survey has taken a slightly different path from the previous ones. As can be seen, cloud computing, social media, disruptive technologies have all contributed to the reshaping of the CIO's role which is increasingly perceived as less "IT-focused" but more "business-friendly", if that is the right term to refer to taking a bigger stake in how business should be IT-enabled.
So, given all the signs shown in this survey, the Asian CIOs and CxOs are likely to be facing another challenging year ahead, albeit a little more exciting and more rewarding—if and only if they could be sitting at the same table, seeing eye to eye with their counterparts and solving problems together.
Next year's survey will have another interesting story to tell. Definitely.
