Every year at CXOsync we explore directions from within the Office of the CIO; what are these strategists planning and what paths are they taking? Through these discussions we're able to understand their paths and identify industry trends. By pairing our audience with a selection of industry innovators on edge of product and solution development for the enterprise we're able to incubate true thought-leaders with actionable technology. From leading blue-chips like IBM, Microsoft and CISCO to newly funded start-ups this is where we gather the latest and greatest.

Good experience. I found the topics relevant and the use of panels interesting.  I enjoyed the conversations at the table; both the focused and the organic discussions.  The free space for discussion in the vendor area was also interesting.
