"It was great to be a part of an event where the primary focus of the event was truly about the education of CIOs and future CIOs, instead of selling sponsorship opportunities to vendors."

The CIOsynergy team confirmed today LongJump as official sponsor of directIT Chicago, which will take place at the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago on February 9, 2012. LongJump platform software creates process-driven web applications that improve business productivity by automating business workflows, making data actionable, enabling social collaboration, mobilizing information access and empowering end-user customizations.
directIT Chicago is a strategic event where we welcome the Office of the CIO to share strategies, successes, failures, and lessons learned as they are an important part of the continual education of successful IT leaders. The role of the CIO requires an effective leadership model that will incubate a team of forward thinking innovators who can effectively leverage technology to support the goals of the business and its many facets. Who else better to guide these aspiring leaders than world renowned CEOs to the likes of Steve Forbes, Jimmy Wales, Howard Putnam, and Jeff Ma; all of whom have shared their recipes of leadership to 100's of CIOs and IT leaders through CIOsynergy.
