Judith Hurwitz to Address Boston Businesses at Babson College Event.

Prominent IT Advisor to Speak on E-Business 'Linkages'

At The Center for Information Management Studies

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ --

Hurwitz Group, a consulting and research company known for pragmatic, business-oriented advice and assistance with e-business and IT initiatives, today announced that Judith Hurwitz, president and CEO, will be a guest speaker for Babson College's Center for Information Management Studies (CIMS) on September 26. Hurwitz will speak on the importance of "linkages" -- connections within an enterprise's own organizations, as well as with customers, suppliers, partners, and e-marketplaces -- to overall success in e-business.

"The correlation between defined and flexible linkages and a company's overall success in e-business is something I've been seeing for quite some time," said Hurwitz. "These systems are becoming more sophisticated and complex -- and more critical -- as companies move into third-generation e-business initiatives. Linkages that are weak or inflexible can wreak havoc."

"We are very pleased to have Judith participate in our first monthly program of the new academic year," said Jerry Kanter, executive director of CIMS. "Involvement of companies such as the Hurwitz Group continually strengthens our mission to promote the effective use of technology among our company members."
