A Sneak Peek at the Results of the Society for Information Management’s 2013 IT Trends Survey

Since its beginnings nearly 35 years ago, the Society for Information Management’s Annual Information Technology Trends Survey has provided valuable insights into what IT leadership thinks about, works on, pays for, hires, invests in, worries about, does, and to whom they report. The University of North Texas College of Business Corporate Partners Program, along with its sponsors, including Cogent Company, will host a fall seminar at Glen Eagles Country Club on Thursday, OutlookOctober 24th, to present this year’s survey. This year’s survey has been updated to better align with the rapidly changing world and issues faced by CIOs today.

Although the results cannot be released until SIM’s annual SIMposium conference, held this year on November 10-12 in Boston, Leon A. Kappelman, Ph.D., will present a sneak peak at the results. Dr. Kappelman is a Professor of Information Systems at the College of Business, University of North Texas, a Fellow at the Texas Center for Digital Knowledge, and Founding Chair of the Society for Information Management’s Enterprise Architecture Working Group.

Cogent Company’s involvement with the University of North Texas College of Business and the Corporate Partners Program goes back to its founding. “UNT continues to lead the way in how students are taught at the intersection of technology and business,” said Marc Hoppers (UNT ’92, ’96), Cogent Company Founder and Managing Partner, said after the event. “We’re happy to continue our association with the College and the University.”

The event begins at 8:30a and should conclude by 11:30a. Breakfast and beverages will be served. Don’t miss a great opportunity to join a dynamic conversation and hear what your peers are doing to address problems in their businesses. The event will be held at Gleneagles Country Club at 5401 W Park Blvd, Plano, TX 75093.
