The Transformational CIO: Architecting the Enterprise of the Future
Driven by economic, social, political, environmental and technological forces, the environment in which organizations operate continues to experience complex and dramatic change. This year’s Symposium speaks to the CIOs who wish to understand and embrace this change and lead the organization to respond to the emerging reality.
The enterprise of the future will be very different from the one we know. It will be complex, develop hitherto unforeseen forms, and will have to respond to unforeseen challenges. All while the windows of opportunity and response will continue to shrink.
There will not only be the need to be agile and adapt to changes as they occur, but to be proactive in shaping the next generation enterprise to be ready for the future.
What can the CIO do to lead the transformation and realize the opportunities that are coming? Find out at the 2013 MIT CIO Symposium.
