Editor's note

At this year's MIT Sloan CIO Symposium, an annual gathering of leading CIOs, IT leaders and academics, the spotlight was on digital disruption and digital transformation.

One thing became clear based on lively discussions at the conference: CIOs are at an inflection point. Traditional methodologies and technologies that worked in the past may not work in today's high-speed, information age. CIOs need to adapt to both digital and platform business models and take the reins of their companies' digital transformation in order to succeed.

But that's not all CIOs have to do to make it in today's digital business; they also must utilize new technologies like automated systems and the sensors and devices that make up the Internet of Things (IoT), they must collaborate with their C-suite colleagues and get further acquainted with the business side of operations.

This CIO Essential Guide rounds up all of SearchCIO's coverage of the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium 2015. From the forces of digital disruption and the changing CIO role to the emergence of platform business models, IoT and automation, get caught up on this year's conference.
