We’re excited to be a part of the Innovation Showcase at the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium on May 24th. The Symposium bills its Innovation Showcase as the home for “early-stage companies with cutting edge solutions that combine both value and innovation to enterprise IT.” The symposium, a premier global conference for CIOs and digital business executives, promises attendees access to the technology that will help them invent the future of their companies, and the Innovation Showcase is a place to do just that. ClearSky Data will be among the 10 select companies at this year’s Innovation Showcase, and we’re looking forward to talking with senior IT leaders about how on-demand primary storage, offsite backup and DR as a hybrid cloud service can help make all their data accessible, no matter where it lives.
In selecting the finalists for its Innovation Showcase, MIT Sloan CIO Symposium looks for startups selling enterprise IT solutions to corporate IT departments. The “outstanding early stage” companies invited to participate offer strategic value and potential impact to the top and bottom lines of their customers, and many have gone on to significant success over the years. This is in keeping with an event that bills itself as the place where “CIOs and senior IT executives…receive actionable information that enables them to meet the challenges of today and the future.”
In announcing the finalists, Anton Teodorescu, co-chair of the Innovation Showcase, said, “The Symposium provides an opportune environment for these early-stage companies to form valuable partnerships with CIOs and a platform to demonstrate their technologies that are building the digital enterprise.”
MIT faculty and students, entrepreneurs and early-stage investors judge entries for the Innovation Showcase and select the 10 best companies, which are then invited to participate. During the event, ClearSky Data will be on hand to network with attendees and discuss how our on-demand primary storage, offsite backup and DR in a single service is changing enterprise storage.
The MIT Sloan CIO Symposium will take place on Wednesday, May 24th at MIT in Cambridge, Mass. The Innovation Showcase is at 5:30 p.m. in the Kresge courtyard. Check out www.mitcio.com/agenda for the full agenda and registration information.
