Discussion: Issues and trends Management (SIM)

Since 1980, the Society for Information Management (SIM), in a joint effort with prominent academicians, has conducted a study to identify the most important IT management issues. Over time these studies expanded to include questions pertaining to spending, workforce sizing and salaries, sourcing, reporting relationships, performance measurement, success skills, and various other IT organizational and management practices and concerns. They also explored how IT executives spend their time, with whom they spend it and what they do with them, as well as their assessment of the role and state of IT in their organizations. In addition to providing a snapshot of the state of IT, another important contribution of this multi-year research effort is its ability to identify important trends across the industry and the IT profession.

This comprehensive report presents the findings of SIM’s 36th Anniversary IT Trends Study, based on responses from 1218 individual SIM members, including 486 CIOs, representing 785 unique organizations. This is the largest response in the history of the study. Although there is significant diversity among SIM member organizations in terms of size, economic sector, and other factors, the average annual revenue of these responding organizations is $6.23 billion, the median is $500 million, and their total revenues of nearly $5 trillion is approximately 28% of the 2014 GDP of the United States. On average, their IT spending is 5.3% of their gross revenues, the highest level since the study began tracking it in 2005. Moreover, IT budgets, hiring, and salaries are increasing by nearly 5% on average, and IT executives are optimistic that this trend will continue into next year.

I hope to answer this two questions in 1.5 pages

answer the following questions:

To what extent do you agree or disagree with the findings and conclusions of the study?

How would you as a CIO prepare for and respond to these issues and trends?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
