Chief Information Officers
A new survey of chief information officers by Compuware Corp. (Nasdaq:CPWR) shows that mobile technology is increasing complexity, usage and costs of mainframe applications. And as a result, companies are finding it more difficult to isolate and fix problems.
The just-released Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Forecast and Local Trend Report for Detroit shows that 11 percent of Detroit-area chief information officers surveyed recently plan to expand their teams. This is up one point from the previous quarter’s projections.
More than 200 CIOs and other IT experts gathered Wednesday to share best practices on running data systems at Michigan Technology Leaders 2013. Innovation, collaboration and mobility were key themes among speakers in the event, held at the Inn at St. John’s.
It was something of an historic show of unity among tooth-and-nail competitors for the good of the Michgian IT scene. The chief information officers of Chrysler Group LLC, Ford Motor Co. and General Motors sat together on the same discussion panel, and for a media Q&A afterward, at the Michigan Council of Women in Technology’s Executives in Technology Leadership Exchange. The event drew a packed crowd of more than 500 to the Inn at St. John’s Monday.
One in 10 Detroit-area chief information officers surveyed plans to expand their IT teams in the second quarter of 2013, according to the Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Forecast and Local Trend Report.
