IT departments hindering data access as only 46% of top execs can get the information they require

From Computing.co.uk

"Only 46% of senior executives in European and North American businesses have access to their company's most important information and the IT department may be to blame, a new report by PwC and storage information firm Iron Mountain claims.

Out of 1,800 senior business leaders in both SMBs (small to medium businesses) and larger firms of more than 2,500 employees, less than half of senior executives felt they had access to the data they required, as ‘two-thirds of the businesses surveyed direct employees to the IT department for access to valuable information’.

The study found that companies are generally better at offering specific departments access to their own data – including research and development (35% of those asked), finance (another 35%) and records management (27%). Only 4% of firms offer information generally to anybody in the company.

It was found that in firms where IT doesn't control access, access rights tended to increase by around 10%.”
