The world is becoming digital and this digitisation is leading to greater connectivity and interaction that easily crosses the old traditional boundaries (such as the boundary of your organisation). Digitisation is resulting in the reality that we operate within a larger digital ecosystem, a complex environment that we cannot control, where different organisations and people with different objectives participate.
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.
At Equinox IT we like to inject fresh thinking. 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.
Equinox IT is the only New Zealand owned IT consultancy to sponsor the MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems Research (CISR). Each year we send one member of our team to the MIT CISR Summer Session in Boston, and this year I was lucky to have the opportunity to attend. The Summer Session was one week long and was held in the week of 17-21 June 2013.
This week we are pleased to welcome back Dr Peter Reynolds, Research Scientist for the MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems Research (CISR), who will work with Equinox IT on Wednesday and Thursday. Equinox IT is the only New Zealand owned consulting company to sponsor the MIT Sloan CISR, which provides us with access to all of the CISR’s latest research findings, resources and case studies, and we use this information to better advise our customers.
