ImageCambridge, MA – April 23, 2012 – The 9th Annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium has announced Traction® Software as one of ten finalists for the 2012 Innovation Showcase as its Traction® TeamPage product represents a cutting edge B2B solution that combines the strong value and innovation to enterprise IT. Traction Software will receive key exposure to many of the world’s most creative and influential IT executives at the Symposium on May 22, 2012.

"Traction Software is honored to be selected as a finalist. CIO's should want to unlock actionable value hidden in their expensive line of business applications and scattered file system, SharePoint, or other servers," said Greg Lloyd, Traction Software President and co-founder. "Traction TeamPage's capability to search, navigate, tag, task, discuss and share live data in business applications or the public Web makes collaboration at work strikingly simple and effective: it works like the Web."

Traction TeamPage makes it easy for people to communicate, work together, and stay on top of what's happening anywhere in their company, connecting people, business applications, and the Web.

“We are very impressed with these top ten Innovation Showcase finalists, as their technologies demonstrate incredible state of the art thinking to today and tomorrow’s challenges,” said David L. Verrill, Executive Director of the MIT Center for Digital Business, and the Co-chair of the Innovation Showcase. “The Innovation Showcase provides a terrific one-of-a-kind opportunity for these start ups to gain a larger visibility in front of IT executives, key stakeholders, and venture capitalists.
