I just got back from South Carolina's first state wide CIO conference. There were over 126 CIO and IT Executives at the opening of the event and additional execs came for day two. The event organizers, Marc DiFrancisco and his crew our of Portland, Oregon did a fantastic job of pulling the event together. I got to meet a lot of fascinating people and got involved in some wonderful discussions surrounding IT, Security, and better ways to measure and manage the risks of IT projects.
The upstate of South Carolina was well represented! I found it gratifying to see so many of our local IT Executives in attendance. Kudos to them for taking the time to invest in a bit of learning and networking.
I plan to write a bit more about the conference over the weekend, but I mention it now just in case you wonder where I have been for the past couple of days.
I've got an excuse.... I was Conference Director of the first annual South Carolina CIO Forum and Executive IT Summit in Columbia,SC.
