MIT Center for Information Systems Research (CISR)

The MIT Center for Information Systems Research (CISR) conducts field-based research on issues related to the management and use of information technology (IT) in complex organizations. Established at the MIT Sloan School of Management in 1974, MIT CISR’s mission is to develop concepts and frameworks to help executives address the IT-related challenges of leading increasingly dynamic, global, and information-intensive organizations. The relevance of the center’s research is ensured by the active participation of more than 80 global patron and sponsor organizations from a wide range of industries. MIT CISR’s “classic” research topics are IT portfolio management, enterprise architecture, IT governance, and IT risk. Current research topics include digitization, IT supply and demand, complexity, big data, reuse, and IT innovation.
