2016 Reports

2016 CIO Roles and Responsibility and Technology Leader reports and 2015 Chief Information Security Officer Reports

The 2016 reports, CIO Roles and Responsibility and Technology Leader are ready for distribution. The 2015 CISO report is also available. We are excited about this year's studies. The first CIO Roles and Responsibility survey was conducted in 2003.

The Higher Education Chief Information Officer Roles and Effectiveness report contains a wide variety of information about the higher education CIO. This information includes demographics of the CIO, their perception of their effectiveness, their opinion on the attributes and experiences necessary for a higher education CIO, and their plans for the future. The report provides longitudinal data on a variety of questions to show trend data. The Higher Education Chief Information Officer Roles and Effectiveness study is a longitudinal study of the senior IT executive in higher education. CIOs from the United States and internationally are surveyed about a wide variety of topics. The institution management teams (other VPs and Presidents) of those CIOs are then given a survey containing many of the same questions that the CIO answered. This two step process provides us with a way to compare CIO and IMT perceptions. In addition survey information from the technology leader (those in the next organizational layer down from the CIO) is also included in the CIO report and provides yet a third perspective on questions that are very important for the higher education CIO.

The Higher Education Technology Leadership (TL) report contains information on those people most likely to succeed the higher education CIO in the future. The report includes the demographics of the TL, their career plans, activities they are undertaking to prepare for that future, and their perspective on the CIO job. The report also contains opinions on CIO job requirements from the CIO and the IMT. The Higher Education Technology Leadership study is a longitudinal study of the individual in the next organizational layer down from the higher education CIO. The study was begun in 2009 and has been conducted six times since then. The report provides longitudinal data on a variety of questions to show trend data.

The CISO survey was conducted for the first time in 2014. CISOs and CIOs were invited to respond to a survey about the CISO roles, background, and place in the organization.

- Available for $35 for an individual report or $100 for a higher-education institution site license. The site license allows you to share the report with every employee at the institution and gives the institution recognition as a CHECS sponsor.
