A recent study reveals that IT chiefs and business leaders often have conflicting goals on key technology issues.
According to the 2018 SIM IT Trends Study, organization and IT leaders both agree that security/cybersecurity and privacy are today's top IT management issues. Yet in several other important IT areas there's a wide divergence of views between organizations and IT professionals.
IT's alignment with business is one key area where organization and IT leaders don't quite see eye to eye. According to the 1,200-respondent survey by the Society for Information Management (SIM), IT-business alignment ranks as organization leaders' second most important worry, but it's only the fourth-most pressing problem of IT bosses.
