SIM's IT Trends Study — growing by leaps and bounds
SIM
It's amazing to think just how far the SIM IT Trends Study has come since the first survey was conducted in 1980. Although it's now one of the most respected sources of information on the state of the IT industry, the study's first year featured just 54 responses.

The size and popularity of the study has grown over the years, to 2013's record 659 responses from senior IT leaders in 484 unique organizations. SIM's IT Trends Study now serves as one of the most accurate representations of IT leadership sentiment to executives and academics alike.

Can computer viruses be helpful?
By Victor Blake
As counterintuitive as it may seem, computer viruses may be a good thing. Sure, getting a virus on your computer right when you need to do some critical task isn't good. But computer viruses may have an important role to play in the long-term quality and reliability — the "health" — of computers, communications systems and eventually all technology-enabled "things." As we expand computing into nearly every aspect of our lives and link these systems together with the Internet of Things, we are inadvertently building networks that facilitate the rapid spread of viruses and other malign software.

How CIO's can stay relevant to the business in a rapidly changing environment
OneStopClick
To stay relevant to the business in a rapidly changing external environment, the CIO and IT department need to be as agile as the infrastructure they provide to the business, and as open to new ways of working as the broader organization. Today's IT agenda, then, is not about keeping things ticking over — i.e. being ordinary and maintaining the status quo. New requirements emerge so quickly that it has become impossible to predict what's coming down the line, so there is a growing need to be ready for anything.
