Each year, SIM conducts a survey of its members to gauge trends within our industry. The responses from our experienced membership helps to benchmark various areas within the IT industry such as major issues, technologies, sourcing, CIO roles, staffing, spending, and salaries. The valuable survey input allows SIM to speak with a unified voice for our members, who are among the most accomplished and innovative leaders in the industry.
IT Trends is widely recognized as one of the most representative barometers of the information technology industry, and has been featured in major business and IT media as well as academic publications.
We had 1213 responses for the 37th Anniversary IT Trends Study, including 801 unique organizations and 490 CIOs. Result archive is available below. If you have questions please contact Lead Researcher
