INDIA: Business intelligence and analytics top the list of technology priorities for CIOs in 2015, followed by infrastructure and data center, both in Southeast Asia and globally, as per Gartner’s latest findings.

The results of a study indicate that CIOs in the region are significantly more enthusiastic in their mobile approaches than their global counterparts, with mobile and cloud having swapped places to list at No. 3 and No. 5, respectively, in Southeast Asia.

Although results show very few differences between the global and Southeast Asia priorities for 2015, CIOs in the region were significantly more advanced in their view toward investments in digital technologies than the global average.

Looking at business intelligence and analytics, for example, CIOs are significantly more bullish on analytics than their global counterparts, with 91 per cent agreeing that they are shifting from backward-looking reporting to forward looking analytics, compared with 80 per cent globally.

The increased interest in adopting a mobile-first strategy for customer-facing services is an indicator that the digital revolution is upon Southeast Asian enterprises, driven by competitive business demands. Among some of the emerging countries in the region, such as Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines, rapidly increasing mobile penetration represents a means to bring entirely new customers into the reach of organizations, particularly in light of the significant mobile friendly younger demographic in these countries
