Research Proposal

IT Decision-Makers Market Size


The goal of this research is to determine the market size of IT decision-makers specifically regarding the number of CIOs, CSOs, CISOs, CDOs, and other comparable positions as available. The scope of the data would ideally pertain to (1) the U.S., (2) global regions (e.g. APAC), and (3) specific countries, as is available. This data will be used to supplement other data previously found regarding employment within IT.

Early Findings

  • For reference, there were a mere 15 CDOs (globally) working in large companies back in 2010, which increased to 400 in 2014.
  • "A survey of more than 500 professionals at investment companies . . . found that 73% expect a surge in the number of chief technology officers (CTOs) on the executive boards of companies in the [financial services] sector."
  • We found this list of other, similar positions of top-level IT decision-makers.
  • In addition to our public search, we scanned our proprietary research database of over 1 million sources and were unable to find any specific research reports that address the goals of this research.
