Who are CIOs’ favourite sources of advice?

And who do chief information officers cite as the least useful?

By Joe Curtis

IT consultants are the last resort for CIOs looking for advice, with 90% of the execs turning to their peer group as a first port of call, according to

The website’s latest CIO 100 report revealed that an overwhelming number of chief information officers rely on their own organisations, or their counterparts elsewhere, to help guide their decision-making, with just 2% plumping for IT consultants and 1% for vendors.

Half of the top 100 named peers as their most important source of expertise, and 41% opted for in-house advice, but only one in 20 picked analysts.

Vendors were voted the least relevant sources of information by 46%, said the website, while analysts came last for 26% of those surveyed.
