It’s been ten years since the Logicalis CIO report was launched, serving as a pulse check on the mood in the industry and identifying common CIO challenges and ambitions and to serve as a reminder that we are part of an ever-changing ecosystem that evolves each year. 

Over the years, we’ve tracked the strategic influence of the CIO and just last year we celebrated the meteoric rise of technology leaders, from the basement to the boardroom. 

This year, that elevated responsibility, combined with emerging technologies and continued economic uncertainty brings a new set of leadership challenges.

We are pleased to be able to deliver you an Australian perspective on the global results for the first time through the first Australian CIO Report. 

What you'll discover

Our research among one thousand CIOs globally, whilst focusing in on the Australian results, shows that the community is leaning into the changes ahead and rising to the challenges.  

An overwhelming number are actively grasping the opportunities of AI, leading in sustainability, and getting on the front foot against fierce new cyber threats. 

Today’s CIO recognises that safeguarding and steering their organisations into the future requires a decisive yet divergent leadership style.
