After a year that thrust technology into the spotlight, technology executives are focusing on the leadership challenges around their people and culture ahead of IT project delivery.

Meanwhile, the CEO agenda of growth, business model transformation, sustainability, diversity and the future of work is shaping how chief information officers, chief technology officers and equivalent digital and IT execs are prioritising their time and investment. These are the key findings of Tech Monitor’s Technology Leaders Agenda 2021 survey, a research project supported by global IT consulting and digital solution provider Hexaware Technologies, which is based on a survey of 611 digital, data, technology and IT leaders across EMEA, APAC and the US in March and April 2021.

The survey confirms the crucial that tech executives are now play within their organisations. It shows that the chief information officer remains the most senior role in the new tech C-suite, despite the emergence in the past decade of the chief digital officer and, more recently, the chief data officer.

But as tech leaders enjoy growing budgets and increasing proximity to CEOs and other senior leadership, Tech Monitor’s expert steering panel of CIOs and CTOs questioned whether they are being ambitious enough with their plans. More technology leaders are focused on IT-business alignment than on digitisation and improving the customer experience, for example.
