Report Snapshot

A new report by Meet the Boss* (part of GDS Group) answers these questions. 

It brings together the views of over 150 senior leaders (VP/Directors and above) from major global enterprises.
The report compares the views of this uniquely senior and influential collection of leaders on: 

  • Different technology topics (including Cyber Security, Cloud, AI/Automation, Digital Transformation and the Internet of Things) 
  • Alternative modes of learning 
  • The extent to which virtual events compare with face-to-face interactions 

The survey identified that the most senior technology leaders at major global firms seem incredibly knowledgeable on many of the most important topics, but admit to being less proficient in many of the emerging topics. 

So this report isn’t just about spotting the challenges – as keeping on top of changes in technology is far from easy – it is also about exploring the possible solutions.
