WHAT: Forrester Research (Nasdaq: FORR) Technology Leadership Forum, “Prospering In Your IT Ecosystem”

Although a technology leader’s primary objective, “to make or save money through the use of IT,” might sound simple, increased expectations from tech-savvy business stakeholders, customers, and end users have made it complex. Growing influence from internal and external parties, including technology suppliers, has also made the IT organization look more like an ecosystem than a self-contained business unit. Forrester’s Technology Leadership Forum 2006 will address how CIOs can balance and benefit from those relationships to prosper in the new environment.
