The majority of chief information officers don’t plan to use Web 2.0 in the next five years
The single most credible survey I’ve found to date confirms what I’ve been saying for some time: Web 2.0 is still a lot of hype, and not a priority for many.
A Robert Half Technology survey of 1,400 chief information officers (CIOs) in the U.S. found:
• 14 percent of organizations use blogs
• 13 percent use social tagging software
• 11 percent use wikis
Meanwhile, more traditional technologies are far more popular:
• Online training is used by 47 percent of the organizations
• Video conferencing is used by 34 percent
• Collaborative workspaces (e.g. SharePoint) is used by 24 percent
Now here’s the killer: 72 percent of CIOs have no plans to use blogs in the next five years; 74 percent have no plans to use wikis (a scientifically representative telephone survey of 1,400 CIOs, not a self-select, voluntary Web survey).
