The Center is a membership-based peer community for CIOs worldwide. With an emphasis on research, education, and outreach, the Center partners with world-class learning programs and academic institutions, established content resources, and respected influencers in the industry to meet the needs of CIOs today and to prepare them for the future. Our website has been designed to create a virtual environment to support CIOs and senior IT leaders, and also to enable participation by members of the extended IT community (the ecosystem) that surrounds and supports today’s CIOs. As in any community, each member has an assigned role, which defines privileges and benefits appropriate to the individual’s participation.
