The Corporate IT Forum is an independent organisation that brings together practitioners from large, well-established businesses to share and document their unique insights and experiences into Enterprise IT problems and solutions.
Founded and directed by some of the world's largest businesses and most admired brands, the Forum is meeting the needs of more than 320 organisations. Together these organisations have 145,000 professional IT staff and, in total, more than 6 million employees.
The Forum promotes best practice and aims to support organisations to become more successful financially and strategically. Uniquely, it provides members with an environment completely free of vendors, suppliers and consultants. The resulting frank exchange of experience and knowledge enables IT practitioners to learn from each other, improve business processes and increase profitability.
