    Thinking of the next 12 months, which of the following solutions do you expect to most significantly benefit your organization?

  • Most enthusiastic about the role of technology

    Cautiously optimistic about technology investments

    Security and privacy are top of mind

    Enthusiastic about the technology opportunity

    Looking for technology to solve problems

    Mobility and Big Data spearhead the enthusiasm for technology

    Big Data and Mobility poised to improve the bottom line

    Technology is central to our companies’ visions. We need to focus on defining the business value of our investments now in order to maximize them in the future.

    We are confident in the investments we’ve made in technology, all across the major pillars: Security, Big Data, Mobility and Cloud. They are aligned with our company objectives, and they give us a competitive advantage today.

    However, we struggle to define the precise business value these investments deliver, especially in areas like cloud. The sooner we can reduce cost, improve security, and integrate new technologies into our legacy systems more effectively, the better we can maximize our technology investments in the future.

    We believe in the power of technology, but its potential has not been reached. Creating a vision for data security will enable us to invest more confidently and pursue this potential in a real way.

    There are no one-size-fits-all solutions in technology, but we need more data security solutions that enable our businesses to maximize the return on our investments. We need technologies like mobility and cloud to help drive productivity and our competitive advantage.

    Continuing to invest in these capabilities is critical, but we need to do a much better job at aligning these investments with company objectives in order to enable sustainable growth.

    We have not seen technology demonstrate its full potential in healthcare. We need more meaningful returns from our technology investments, especially in security and privacy.

    We need to improve the communication and collaboration between IT leaders and healthcare leaders, and make technology more responsive to market dynamics.

    Technology is critical to the future of our industry, but there are other factors that play larger roles in the current environment. Where technology can serve our industry best is in the areas of security and privacy, client service, big data and analytics solutions. These are the areas we’ll invest in most heavily.

    Technology is part of the foundation of our industry’s success, and will continue improving in the years to come.

    We have seen strong returns on technology in our industry; it is responsive to market dynamics and gives us a competitive edge.

    Our disappointment with security and cloud solutions is now behind us. We are now looking to open standards and big data solutions to help us realize technology’s full potential.

    We also predict that our companies will invest most heavily in the areas of security and privacy, and big data in the years to come.

    The biggest opportunities for technology in Government applications are security, problem solving and increased productivity. Technology is certainly important to our mission but a panacea.

    Security is our biggest concern, and that’s where we predict we will focus more of our technology investments in the coming years. We are still optimistic about big data, mobility and cloud, but these investments will not be as significant.

    If we streamline our decision making process, make IT systems more flexible, and put more resources to support IT, we can produce a technology environment that is more adaptable to change and that is more likely to sharpen our competitive edge.

    Technology is central to our competitive advantage, and we are excited by the returns on investment we expect to see across the industry, especially in mobility and big data.

    We feel very confident in our big data and mobility capabilities, and will continue to focus our investments on these areas. We are less certain about cloud and security, but have not experienced the same challenges in these areas as other industries have.

    Our opportunity in Marketing Services is to use technology to increase productivity, drive revenue, and help us respond to constantly shifting market dynamics.

    Technology has played a central role in our ability to respond to market changes and keep our competitive edge.

    In our industry, technology investments are well-aligned with our company objectives, but we want technology to do more for improving productivity and increasing revenue.

    Big data, analytics and mobility are the areas about which we are most excited. In the near term, we will likely invest more in these technologies than in others. We should also look to augment the payoff on these investments by setting realistic expectations, procuring analytics expertise, and keeping up with the pace of change.

    We are still hoping for greater rewards from security and the cloud, but they are not currently holding back our business.
