    The Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey is the largest IT leadership study in the world, with almost 4,000 respondents across 84 countries.

    We are pleased to announce that we can now offer our survey results with a specific lens on the energy sector. The Power & Utilities report can be downloaded here, while the Oil & Gas report can be downloaded here. In both surveys, we examine key topics, and highlight several areas where this industry’s responses differed significantly from those across all industries.

    • The transition to digital remains a challenge for Oil & Gas companies and CIOs and the industry could benefit from more aggressive digital strategies. To achieve this, companies should further invest to pilot and deploy digital solutions.
