Introducing the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium First Hybrid Edition
The 19th annual Symposium in 2022 will be a hybrid event. The in-person event will be held on May 22 and 23 at the MIT Sloan Samberg Center and Wong Auditorium (provided that the MIT campus is open). Due to space restrictions, attendance will be limited, but a digital version will run in parallel, allowing people to participate in most sessions. As in 2021, access to the digital Symposium will be via the Mighty Network platform, so the experience will be familiar. This online community will continue to be our virtual program and networking hub.
For 16 years, the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium was a one-day event at Kresge Auditorium on the MIT campus in May. The 17th annual Symposium in 2020 was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That year, we offered the Digital Learning Series, a series of webinars from June through October, instead. Because of the ongoing health crisis, the in-person symposium did not return in 2021. For the 18th annual Symposium, we introduced the first digital edition, which ran from April 5 through May 28, 2021. We are continuing to innovate and we are introducing a hybrid format in 2022.
2022 Theme: Digital Ecosystems: Reshaping the Future of Business?
Economies around the world have been undergoing a digital transformation, which has been accelerated by both technological advances and the Covid pandemic. Rising trade of services is driving unexpected innovations and new digital ecosystem partnerships. Social, political, and technological forces (supply chain disruptions, novel cyber threats, labor shortages, and pandemics) will continue to impact business in often unpredictable ways. How will CIOs adjust their approach to organizational and technical architectures, risk management, talent acquisition, decision making, and data management to meet this volatility? Join us at the 2022 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium to discuss how your enterprise can leverage the service economy, supply chains, cybersecurity, and accelerated digitalization to prosper in the 2020s.
