Now in its 15th year, the Harvey Nash CIO Survey is one of the world's most comprehensive and respected reports on the evolving role of the CIO and the IT function.

Published in May 2013, events are being staged in 15 locations across the US, Europe and Asia for IT leaders to discuss the findings, including the evolving relationship between the CEO and CIO, the challenge and opportunities of digital media and the role of women in IT. As ever, it will be great opportunity to network with your peers over wine and canapés.
