Each year CIO Sweden conducts a trend survey among Sweden’s CIOs. They also host an annual event where they discuss the results and the CIOs from some of Sweden’s largest companies talk about their vision. On February 6 I attended this year’s CIO Trends event at Münchenbryggeriet in Stockholm.
The main conclusion from this year’s survey is that compared to last year not that many things have changed. However, one interesting change this year was that last year’s most important trend, cloud and cloud solutions, had been kicked down by Mobility. Mobility as in easiness to move around not only in the office but also in large scales around the world. Information should always be on your fingertip no matter the device or connection. The Cloud is still a hot topic and focus on that is still high among companies. I guess henceforth we will see more of a combination of the two where you use cloud to create more mobility.
Fun fact of the day from the CIOs of Sweden: The most common CIO in Sweden is Male (84%), around 45-49 years old (33%) and don’t like shopping (2%).
