Chief information officers are focusing too much time and energy on large enterprise-level projects, instead of making use of next-generation business intelligence and analytics platforms that make employees more efficient, according to an analysis of a survey by the business advisory firm CEB. The group found that while executives are demanding an average of 20% more productivity from their employees, there is little communication about what IT needs to get the job done. "Companies need to rethink their strategic planning altogether. The days of setting out annual strategic plans and budgets will soon be behind us. Things change so quickly now that organizations really need to be reviewing their plans quarterly, and ensuring they can adapt them if priorities have altered," said CEB managing director Andrew Horne.
