For the first time in a decade, more than 70 percent of CIOs say their role is becoming "more strategic," according to the 19th annual Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey.

For the 2017 report, Harvey Nash and KPMG surveyed 4,498 CIOs and technology leaders across 86 countries about their perspectives on the IT industry.

Here are five survey insights.

1. The number of organizations with an enterprisewide digital strategy peaked at 41 percent in 2017, up from 35 percent in 2016 and 27 percent in 2015.

2. Thirty-nine percent of IT leaders reported feeling "very fulfilled" in their job, representing a three-year high in job satisfaction. In 2015, only 33 percent of IT leaders felt "very fulfilled."

3. Out of the 17 industries surveyed, healthcare ranked No. 7 for CIO job satisfaction. Eighty-three percent of healthcare CIOs reported feeling "very fulfilled" or "quite fulfilled."

4. The plurality of all IT respondents (31 percent) plan to stay in their current role for the next two to five years, with 21 percent looking to leave within a year. Twenty-three percent of health IT leaders expect to switch employers in less than one year.
