CIOs are getting better at reinvesting savings into new projects, but investment in skills and career development is still poor.
Gartner's annual survey of 2,000 CIOs found that CIOs were becoming better at running IT processes but falling short when measured on skills building.
Dave Aron, vice-president and distinguished analyst at Gartner, "CIOs are reinvesting savings in capital projects. If you consolidate applications you make savings across business units." He said that across Europe, CIOs were identifying generic areas of the business that could be run centrally as a shared service.
