About the Survey:
The survey was developed and conducted by CEOWORLD Magazine and includes responses from more than 4,909 IT professionals.

The 2016 CEOWORLD Magazine survey reflects the opinions of 4,909 full-time employees working for large tech companies. The reports were fielded in May and June 2016. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 4,909 respondents is plus or minus 1.6 percentage points. In addition to sampling error, one should bear in mind that as in all survey research, there are possible sources of error—such as coverage, nonresponse and measurement error——that could affect the results.
