Gartner, a United Kingdom corporate research firm conducted a survey of more than 250 to 300 CIO’s (Chief Information Officers). The results were shocking as only 1% of Bussiness CIO’s are working with Blockchain.
This year’s Gartner CIO Survey provides factual evidence about the massively hyped state of blockchain adoption and deployment. It is critical to understand what [it] is and what it is capable of today, compared to how it will transform companies, industries and society tomorrow.
The challenge for CIOs is not just finding and retaining qualified engineers, but finding enough to accommodate growth in resources as blockchain developments grow.
Qualified engineers may be cautious due to the historically libertarian and maverick nature of the [tech’s] developer community.
– Gartner Vice President David Furlonger
More than 77% of CIO’s revealed that their companies are not interested in the tech or they dont have plans to integrate tech in future. 8% of revealed that they want to experiment with the technologies and 1% were using Blockchain was revealed in the survey.
