    Hyatt Regency Reunion - Downtown

    We're proud to host CIOsynergy in Dallas on April 5; The city is the largest economic center of the 12-county Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington metropolitan area.The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has one of the largest concentrations of corporate headquarters for publicly traded companies in the United States. The city of Dallas has 12 Fortune 500 companies, and the DFW region as a whole has 20 making this an ideal city to host the CIOsynergy 2012 series.

    Over 100 IT leaders will join us on April 5, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Reunion Downtown; these IT leaders represent both the fortune and vast mid-market enterprise community within the Dallas metro area. An evening of unparalleled networking in an ultimate learning environment with the CIOs of Dallas Forth Worth enterprises.

    Terry Jones - CIOsynergy keynote

    Our keynote, Travelocity.com founder Terry Jones; currently the Chairman of Kayak.com and former CIO of American Airlines. Rare insight into the innovative path of this former CIO turned business mogul; the trials, successes, failures, and lessons learned will all be shared.

    Scott Shuster - ABC News foreign correspondent. Producer of NPR's All Things Considered. Consulting Editor, The McGraw-Hill Companies and BusinessWeek. Scott's remarkable background and prodigious skills onstage make him the right choice to serve as moderator to the CIOpanel.

    Scott Shuster has led virtually every BusinessWeek CEO, CFO, and CIO conference held since the founding of the magazine's events group -- more than 100 of the world's most prominent gatherings of large-company leaders and senior executives.

    The CIOpanel has been a staple ingredient of CIOsynergy since its inception 4 yrs ago. Here we picked 4 CIOs who have demonstrated operational excellence within the organization they serve. We look to these CIOs for guidance on what challenges they are facing, what technologies have they adopted over the past year that have elevated and morphed the operating platform of their businesses, and what are their lessons learned.

        

    Are they innovating, divesting, or securing? We will find out on April 5 with the help of the CIOpanel who include the CIOs from RadioShack, Texas Health Resources, Greatwide Logistics Services & Hostess Brands.
