The Global CTO Survey 2020 Report

A detailed look into how CTOs are tackling the strangest year of the century
01 - 01
Find out what CTOs are doing and what challenges are on their minds

Answers from over 250 CTOs about their tech choices, management tactics, and current challenges

Life in 2020 is more digital than ever, and technology leaders are racing to gain a competitive edge. At the heart of this race is the CTO, tasked with building the right teams and making the right decisions to make their company come out on top.

But you can’t succeed faster than the competition if you’re not sure if you’re going in the right direction. Every week is filled with decisions that could lead to long-term consequences. For each decision, a CTO would be right to ask: “are others in my position doing the same?”

If you want to stop flying blind and discover what other CTOs are doing, we have the answer.

(And if you’re simply curious about what keeps CTOs up at night, we have intel you’ll surely appreciate.)
