Framingham, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES

FRAMINGHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Oct 10, 2013) - IDG's CIO -- the executive-level IT media brand providing insight into business technology leadership -- in partnership with the CIO Executive Council, announces the new digital disruption panel and workshop at the upcoming CIO Perspectives seminars. The CIO Perspectives seminars are one-day regional gatherings of CIOs and senior level IT executives, from mid to large-sized companies that connect peers and solutions providers with each other.

Sponsorship Opportunities
CIO Perspectives seminars provide an ideal atmosphere for solution providers to develop relationships with enterprise CIOs and lead discussions on key business and technology topics during scheduled sessions, networking breaks and single share of voice sponsorship opportunities.

Starting November 13th in Houston, TX, a CIO panel and workshop focused on innovative approaches to digital disruption and business model change will be incorporated in the agenda. CIOs and IT organizations are dealing with escalating demands from their business colleagues as they respond to unexpected new competitors, continual cost pressures and rapid-fire market opportunities. During this insightful session, attendees will hear the thoughts and opinions from a diverse panel of CIOs, as well as the event's Thought Leadership Sponsor. After the panel, attendees will move into small workshop groups for a deeper discussion and idea exchange.

"Technology is rapidly changing how we do business and it is up to the CIO and their team to ensure their organization is prepared to capitalize on opportunities around these market changes," said Adam Dennison, vice president and publisher, CIO. "The workshop helps to nurture the relationship between attendees and the solution providers and build a dialogue that can continue post-seminar."
