The Quest Leadership Community, Quest International Users Group’s official peer network for CIOs and their direct reports, and The Advisory Council, which provides IT organizations with access to objective, actionable advice for resolving IT issues, announce their official partnership which opens TAC’s network of IT experts and its benchmarking services to QLC members, giving them a competitive industry edge.

“Everyone gets the same technology packages from Oracle,” said Alan Guibord, founder of TAC. “Gaining competitive advantage comes down to who utilizes the product in a unique way; who stands out.”

“QLC’s latest partnership will bring value far beyond typical community networking,” said Robert Lieberman, Centro Properties Group senior vice president and CIO, Quest Board of Directors Treasurer and QLC member. “This partnership provides QLC members with access to experts who can vastly extend our investment in software.”

The partnership will debut at Quest’s CIO Forum, an invitation-only event open to top-level IT executives on Monday, April 11 during COLLABORATE 11. Speakers include Walt Disney Parks and Resorts’ former CIO Roger Berry, Oracle Senior Vice President of Applications Management Steve Miranda and a panel of IBM, Microsoft and Forrester representatives. The CIO Forum will serve as the kick-off event for the QLC Regional Roundtable Series, which later this year will host events in Boston (June) , San Diego (August), Dallas/Fort Worth (October) and Atlanta (November).
