Communities of Interest (COIs)

COIs are at the core of how we build community as an organization. Communities meet regularly around specific topics, shared experiences, and goals and they give members a platform to collaborate in a non-competitive environment. Community members share their experiences and showcase their successes, illuminate the needs of the technology community, and drive research for our ecosystem.

Peer forums

For the last 10 years we’ve hosted “CIO Forums” as a way to drive an environment of collaboration that’s “for CIOs, by CIOs.” We’re now extending this effective platform to other job roles and functional positions. Forums provide excellent networking opportunities as well as peer-to-peer candid discussions around technology issues, trends and challenges that technology leaders and contributors face every day. Checkout Peer Forums to learn more about how leverage this platform.
