Many of you will be aware of Equinox IT’s sponsorship of the MIT Center for Information Systems Research (CISR), based in Boston, Massachusetts. CISR conducts field-based research on issues related to the management and use of information technology in complex organisations.
Equinox IT is the only New Zealand owned IT consultancy to sponsor the MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems Research (CISR).

The Summer Session was one week long and was held in the week of 17-21 June 2013.
