MIT Sloan CIO Symposium Academic Keynote Panel, "IT Organization of the Future: Driving Business Change," Announced

MIT Media Lab Director and Sloan School of Management Senior Researchers Debate How IT and Information Drive Innovation

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. --(Business Wire)-- Mar 04, 2010 The value of information – and the technologies that generate and propagate that information – is still increasing. On May 19th, at the seventh annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium the Academic Keynote Panel will explore what businesses have discovered about IT in this difficult economy, and how innovation need not be time-consuming or expensive. Today, “digital organizations” are conducting many experiments every day, at virtually no cost. And these experiments are positively affecting top-line revenue and bottom-line results.

The panel will assess the impact of social media, continuing productivity growth, and the IT function as the master of this new business climate. Panel participants include the following:

  • Jason Pontin, Editor in Chief/Publisher of MIT Technology Review as moderator.
  • Frank Moss, Director, MIT Media Lab
  • Jerome B. Wiesner, Professorship of Media Technology
  • Jeanne W. Ross, Director, Center for Information Systems Research (CISR), MIT Sloan School of Management
  • Erik Brynjolfsson, Schussel Professor of Management and Director, MIT Center for Digital Business at the MIT Sloan School of Management.


  • 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.
