Chief information officers have the hots for online training, video conferencing and collaboration software such as Microsoft's SharePoint. Just don't ask these execs to blog, use a wiki or enter a virtual world.
That's the recap from a survey of 1,400 CIOs by staffing firm Robert Half Technology. A quick cut of the results.
And then the whole enterprise 2.0 thing (all posts, Dion Hinchcliffe) unravels big time. We'll skip the percentage using (or planning to use) newfangled technologies like tagging software and virtual worlds and just give you the CIOs that have no plans to use these tools. To wit:
Of those amounts the only one that shocks me a bit is the wiki usage. Why? In general, wikis are an easy way to track projects and bugs. You'd think that wikis would be a no-brainer for CIOs and their IT departments. Of course, it's possible that software developers and project managers are using wikis extensively and the CIO hasn't noticed it yet.
