CIO Colloquium 2011
Our CIO Research Colloquium at CPUT on the 10th and 11th of March 2011 was held to showcase and
discuss research issues. It was an ideal opportunity for collaboration with Masters and Doctorate
students and researchers.

collaboration on Enterprise Architecture. We had the opportunity to host an evening with the
father of EA. Workshops on EA continued in 2010 with conversations on EA theory and agile EA.
The Cape Higher Education Consortium of the 4 universities in the Western Cape shared their programs
and research focus. Organized by the Cape IT Initiative and in cooperation with the City of Cape Town,
it is hoped that the universities will continue to share research insights.
The forum is open to Chief Information Officers (CIOs), Academics, Professionals, Industry, Corporates, Government, Graduates, Students and other stakeholders.
The forum provides CIOs with insight into the academic program, research and initiatives being undertaken by participating universities.
It also enables academics to share, learn and engage with key decision makers in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector.
Our desire is to connect people and breakdown barriers.
We build relationships with those who are active on the ground and passionate about making a difference.
The online forum and events are managed through social networks.
Social networks avoid bureaucracies, remove impediments and build bridges that connect individuals directly.
