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 MITSloan 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.
Here is a great quote from Leading Digital that is apropos to the Symposium theme:
"[Digital Masters] see technologies as a way to rethink the way they do business, breaking free of outdated assumptions that arose from the limits of older technologies."
This year's Symposium is all about breaking free of outdated assumptions.
