Figure of the day: Importance of cyber security on the IT agenda - CxO survey - Italy

The Italian CxO Investment Survey participants mention cyber security projects as particularly important. For 39% say that it is the most important topic on their organization's IT agenda.

Cyber security has become a strategic topic for companies and public institutions. This is also due to the pandemic and the ensuing growing adoption of remote working, which has highlighted many vulnerabilities. Projects aimed at enhancing corporate data follow closely. Here companies mainly focus on the development of repositories for big data management and, to a lesser extent, the update of traditional BI and reporting tools.

There still appears to be limited attention to the most advanced solutions in the data field, namely AI tools, advanced analytics, and RPA. However, interest is growing fast and is centered around manufacturing, retail, wholesale, and transport. RPA solutions allow to speed up the execution of repetitive tasks, especially in the finance department, in all companies. AI tools are increasingly used by manufacturers to support quality checks and supply chain communications, as well as to reduce waste and improve customer service
