The CIO’s Strategic Agenda for Small- to Mid-Sized Organisations in EMEA

The most recent Aberdeen Business Review surveyed more than 1,300 respondents, 15% of whom represent small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) based in Europe, the Middle-East and Africa (EMEA). About half of the respondents were line-of-business managers and executives and the other half represented various levels of IT. The CIO and other IT decision-makers working in these organisations show several identifying characteristics that provide valuable insight. Here we use those characteristics to identify some of the strategic choices and technology tools that lead to top performance among this group.
