Sneak preview of the results

In 2015, half of the CIOs complained they had no access to the board, while that number has now dropped to 13%. Despite this, only 27% of the respondents describe their relationship with business as excellent, with 41% reporting it is "a work in progress" and 17% admitting it is "challenging".
