Recoonix research suggests that IT leaders lack faith in the current crop of CIOs to lead IT in business in three years’ time.

NEWARK, NOTTINGHAMSHIRE – March 2, 2015 — / — Reconnix, a technology services company from Newark, Nottinghamshire, commissioned a survey of 100 UK based IT Leaders, aggregating their thoughts on the future of technology leadership in the enterprise. Worryingly, Reconnix found that 73 % of current IT leaders are unsure that the CIOs of today will be the right people to lead IT within UK businesses within the next three years.

When asked why they felt today’s CIOs will not be leading IT in the next three years 50 % cited a lack of general knowledge of business strategy, while nearly half (43 %) cited a lack of technical skills. 36 % also felt that their knowledge of IT and their skill sets will not be suitable for the IT landscape of 2018. Over a third (37 %) of those surveyed also do not believe that enough is being done within their organisations or the industry to guarantee that future CIOs will have the skills they need to ensure business success.
