Preparing for the Future

Despite the long-perceived gap between technology and business leaders, the 2015 survey found that a significant number of business executives (61 percent) are now involved in the early stages of the IT purchase decision process.

Over the past few years, the technology industry has seen tremendous growth in cloud and mobile technologies, so much so that they are now mainstream and part of the everyday business plan. Cloud-based resources are now commonplace and used significantly in production environments. Mobile technologies are now a fact of life for many IT organizations, with entire business models springing up around mobile services.

Given the integration level these initiatives have reached, according to research from QuinStreet Enterprise, IT leaders and business executives are beginning to focus their eyes on new IT initiatives, including so-called "smart" technologies, as well as efforts to better integrate previous IT investments into the business. Improving security and mitigating risk, business process management (BPM) and smart technologies were identified as the top three initiatives for business leaders this year. Not surprisingly, both IT and business executives cited a lack of resources and the increasing complexity of information technology as their top concerns, largely echoing results from 2014.

In this slideshow, we've featured highlights from the survey.
