Across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) digital business is at a crossroads: according to Gartner’s 2019 CIO Agenda Survey, 35 percent of CIOs surveyed in EMEA are ready to roll their digital initiatives on a broader scale. That’s 20 percent more CIOs who made the same claim last year. Gartner’s annual global survey included 3,100 CIO participants in all major industries, including 921 respondents in 53 EMEA countries.
“EMEA CIOs are setting the example when it comes to harvesting the results of digital initiatives,” says Andy Rowsell-Jones, a Gartner VP and Research Director. “[Their] success at evolving endeavors to scale is higher in EMEA than among their CIO counterparts in North America, Latin America and Asia/Pacific. In addition, to encourage the application of ‘digital’ at scale within their organization, 64 percent of EMEA CIOs fostered better collaboration with the business, and 46 percent reduced silos and internal complexity.”
