Technology Network (KTN) is a forum for senior IT leaders
to address critical management issues such as managing complexity,
global sourcing, and leveraging IT to drive growth and profitability.
The KTN features a wide-ranging variety of cross-industry

to technology challenges.
The KTN convenes two times annually during the Spring and Fall season. During each one-day event, participants engage
in a highly interactive knowledge exchange focused on pressing
technology management and strategy issues in a confidential,
collaborative atmosphere. The KTN also stimulates and supports
significant new research that’s relevant to the technology
