IDC's CIO and Technology Professionals Agenda program recognizes that an IT executive's time is consumed by three pressing requirements: to engage in and respond to an innovative, rapidly changing business environment; to keep existing IT systems operating efficiently and effectively; and to control costs wherever possible. CIO and Technology Professionals Agenda enables IT executives to align themselves to their organizations' strategic needs in the face of these demands. With its extensive library of IDC MaturityScape models, research-based studies, and best practice documents, CIO and Technology Professionals Agenda provides invaluable insight for CIOs, CTOs, IT strategists, chief architects, and other senior IT executives as they contend with unprecedented opportunities and formidable challenges.
