CITEworld's CITE Forum Returns to New York City

One-Day Event to Showcase Emerging Trends, Best Practices in Mobile, Cloud, Big Data & BYOD

FRAMINGHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2013) - IDG's CITEworld -- the leading resource providing insight into the intersection of consumer technologies and the enterprise -- today released the agenda for the second annual CITE Forum, a one-day event devoted exclusively to the consumerization of IT in the enterprise (CITE). The one-day forum, taking place on November 5, 2013 at the Hilton New York in New York City, will provide expert insight on topics including mobile apps and devices, social enterprise, big data, and cloud computing.

"Consumerization of IT continues to evolve and impact today's workplace and IT infrastructure," said Matt Rosoff, editorial director, CITEworld "The CITE Forum will engage IT and business leaders and teach them how to gain a competitive advantage through best practices and concrete, real-world examples from industry thought leaders."

The action packed one day forum will provide new insights into how organizations are embracing the influx of consumer technologies in the workplace, resulting in new business innovation, higher productivity and employee engagement and satisfaction. Expert speakers, top solution providers and experienced IT leaders, whose guidance will equip organizations to keep up with the speed of change, will fill the agenda.

Moderating CITE Forum will be Scott Kirsner of the Boston Globe, who is widely known for his insights on emerging technologies through his column, The Innovation Economy. A keynote by Dow Jones & Co. CIO Stephen Orban will set the tone for the day as he shares his company's digital vision and decision to drive that strategy through the CIO office. Other speakers from leading companies such as Box and TIAA-CREF, plus CITEworld's Rosoff and many others will give IT and business decision-makers a holistic view of new best practices surrounding the enterprise integration of social, mobile, cloud and big data -- including that generated by sensors, or the Internet of things (IoT).

  • Cost-effective, business-smart mobile application strategies
