- Survey of more than 500 C-Level Executives In Europe and the U.S. Reveals Data Security, Client Retention as Top Priorities
In spite of uncertain political and economic times, 91.4 percent of C-level executives are hopeful about the future of technology in their businesses.
In a recent survey of more than 500 C-level executives across Europe and the United States, nearly half of top executives are concerned about a disruptive company entering their industry and cutting into their market share. Even more interesting given recent concerns about data security from the retail industry to politics, nearly half of respondents (45.2 percent) do not rank data security as one of their top three business priorities.
"Our study allowed us to take a close look at the business and IT concerns that top executives are focused on, allowing us to provide the best BI reporting," said Christian Ofori-Boateng, CEO of ChristianSteven Software. "We learned that even during these times of political and economic uncertainty and technology, American and European executives are cautiously optimistic. Some fear competition from a new market disruptor or automation, but most are hopeful about the role technology will play in their businesses moving forward."
