The CIO and Technology Professionals Agenda program enables technology executives to align themselves to their organizations' strategic needs in the face of these insistent demands. With an extensive library of IDC MaturityScapes and benchmark studies, IDC DecisionScape reports, and best practice documents and a team of world-class analysts, CIO and Technology Professionals Agenda provides invaluable insight for CIOs, CTOs, IT strategists, chief architects, and other senior IT executives as they contend with formidable challenges and unprecedented opportunities.
