The 2011 CIO Agenda survey by Gartner Executive Programs has found that Indian organizations see business continuity as a high priority area for future investment.

In a ranking of the top ten business priorities for Indian organizations in 2011, ‘Improving business continuity, risk and security’ came second, behind ‘Increasing enterprise growth’.

The survey also looked at IT-related priorities, finding that cloud computing was the top area in which Indian companies expect to progress during 2011.

CIOs report that their organizations are emphasizing growth, in addition to continued vigilance on cost and operational efficiencies. This emphasis is consistent with emerging signs of economic recovery and increasing competition to attract and retain customers.
