"This is the best gathering of CIOs that I’ve ever been to, and I’ve been to quite a few."

Richard Mark Soley

Inventing Your Future: Accelerating Success through Technology

Digitization and exponential improvements in technology (faster, cheaper, smarter) are the foundation of future success. Accelerated success will come through new combinations of people, processes, and technology ─ finding smarter, more efficient ways to manage current operations; using technology, including the Internet of Things, to redefine products; making insightful decisions based on analytics; and improving the customer experience.

We are at an inflection point. What made CIOs successful today will not necessarily make them successful tomorrow. CIOs need new modes of thinking and practice, and exceptional collaboration skills across the organization. To accelerate success, CIOs need to work with their C-Suite colleagues and the rest of their enterprise on envisioning new business models enabled by technology.

Get the insights you need to invent your and your organization’s future at the 2015 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium. The Symposium brings together the academic thought leadership of MIT with the in-the-trenches experience of leading, global CIOs who are using technology to build new paths to success.

Who Should Attend?

  • Global Chief Information Officers across industries and sectors.
  • Other C-level executives from technology, information management, operations, and finance functions.
  • Senior business and technical executives who lead or need to deliver business value through innovative solutions.
