  3. 3. Executive summary of the Wipro survey report • The way that corporations view technology has shifted significantly in recent years. • IT today is often seen as an operational overhead rather than a competitive weapon. • CIOs today must take on an important challenge – restoring the perception of IT in the enterprise as a strategic enabler rather than just necessary infrastructure or software. • The way to accomplish this is by understanding the company’s goals and showing business leaders how IT projects and services can help reach them faster.3 © 2012 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
