DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global data center solutions provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) is pleased to announce its continuation of support for the Society of Information Management (SIM) through its platinum sponsorship of the third annual Houston CIO Charity Golf Tournament. SIM is Houston’s premier network for IT executives and thought leaders. The tournament takes place April 23 at the Golf Club of Houston, home to the Shell Houston Open. All proceeds help support local nonprofit organizations promoting STEM-based education.
“We’re happy to continue our support of this event for the third consecutive year,” said Scott Brueggeman, chief marketing officer, CyrusOne. “CyrusOne is fully committed to the Houston market, and we are honored to be a part of an event that supports so many of the Houston SIM charities. We see this sponsorship as an opportunity to invest in a program that is beneficial to the growth and innovation of this industry through the preparation of future IT professionals.”
This year’s tournament supports several local STEM-based, nonprofit organizations, including Genesys Works, the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP), and the Management Information Systems Student Organization (MISSO). Genesys Works aims to enable inner-city high school students to discover professional opportunities by breaking down stereotypical barriers and educating students on potential career opportunities, especially within the information technology realm. Dedicated to advancing the IT profession through professional development, the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) seeks to support IT education and national policies. The Management Information Systems Student Organization serves to help position students at the University of Houston for real-world professional development and jump-start students’ careers.
SIM collects the intellectual capital of IT leaders nationwide and offers resources such as face-to-face meetings and networking, partnerships, online tools, publications, outreach opportunities, and scholarships that professionals need in order to do business better.
