So we are proud to welcome back Dr Peter Weill, Chairman and Senior Research Scientist for the MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems Research (CISR), to share the MIT’s latest research findings on digital ecosystems. In 2008 Ziff Davis recognised Dr Weill as #24 of The Top 100 Most Influential People in IT, the highest-ranked academic. The visit will take place 22 and 23 August in Wellington and Dr Weill will be accompanied by Dr Peter Reynolds, Research Scientist for the MIT CISR.

'Creating a Vibrant Digital Ecosystem' Event

On 23 August Dr Weill will present ‘Creating a Vibrant Digital Ecosystem’ in an event hosted by Equinox IT together with the Wellington City Council. The presentation is targeted at business and IT professionals and will be based on MIT CISR digital ecosystems research with reference to Wellington's digital ecosystem context.

Dr Weill and Dr Reynolds will also work with Equinox IT and our clients during the visit on digital ecosystems and other recent information technology and digitisation research findings from the MIT CISR.
