C-Suite Increasingly Collaborating on IT Purchasing Decisions

By 2015, 47 percent of technology purchasing decisions will be made solely by the CIO or IT department, down from 55 percent in 2013, according to a new survey from Forrester.

Additionally, about 7 percent of all IT purchases are now made without any input from the CIO, according to the survey.

The shift is largely due to IT purchases becoming more of a collaborative decision between executives as technology becomes a more integral part of business strategy. "The fact that business users are taking the lead in identifying opportunities to apply technology solutions to business problems is a good thing, not something to be deplored," Forrester Vice President and Analyst Andrew Bartels told Computerworld.
