IT Leaders (Still) Prioritize Efficiency Over Customer Experience: GenPact, Acorio Research

Things look a bit different from the IT perspective. ServiceNow consultants Acorio found that companies are more focused on internal efficiency than customer satisfaction: for example, 76% track time to resolve an incident as a Key Performance Indicator while just 19% track customer satisfaction. Similarly, GenPact reports that CIOs are prioritizing projects such as artificial intelligence and cloud migrations, with customer experience tech ranked sixth on the list. One welcome bit of realism: just 22% of CIOs thought they were the primary drivers of digital transformation, while 61% recognized they were partnering with business unit leaders.
