26 SIM Boston Programs Life Sciences CIO Roundtable As one of the most specialized and fastest-growing business segments in the New England area, the Life Science industry has a strong demand for IT leaders. These CIO’s and other IT managers have special system and process needs to support the unique requirements of the Pharmaceutical, Biologic, Medical Device and Genomic Information businesses. In order to meet these special needs, SIM Boston has formed the Life Sciences CIO Roundtable. This group meets quarterly to share ideas, to network, and to hear guest speakers on new technologies and best practices in Life Science’s IT. Meetings are generally held at member companies, and followed by a networking dinner event. Our members represent some of the leading Life Science companies in New England, including Alkermes, FORUM Pharmaceuticals, Lantheus Medical Imaging, and Zafgen. Many of the region’s major IT service vendors and educational institutions also participate. SIM BOSTON • www.simboston.org With the other CIO Roundtables, meetings and programs offered by Boston SIM, we truly are “Where Life Sciences IT leaders connect!” Education Roundtable SIM Boston Education Roundtable provides a collaboration forum for K-12 and higher education IT leaders. The distance between K-12 and higher education is narrowing and technology is both the enabler and catalyst to becoming a digital learning center. With education at a cross-roads with expanding costs and digitally savvy students, IT leadership is critical to empower administrators and academics with the right tools and guidance. The quarterly SIM Boston Education Roundtable meetings are member driven with a combination of presentations and discussion around topics like ERP replacement, crowd sourcing, external services (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, etc.) & data analytics to learning technologies & faculty development. The roundtable is for director roles and above for both higher education and K-12 technology leaders.
