The MIT Sloan CIO Symposium doesn't happen until May 19th, but today they're announcing the ten start-up companies that'll be part of the "innovation showcase" at the event. These are early-stage IT companies with promising technology that'll get to demo their wares for the 600 or so chief information officers and tech execs in attendance. They were picked by a group of judges including David Verrill, executive director of MIT's Center for Digital Business and managing director of Hub Investment Group, and a number of local investors and entrepreneurs. 

Four of the ten companies are from Massachusetts. They're listed below (with the buzzword-studded descriptions of what they do provided by MIT):

Buzzient / Cambridge, MA
Buzzient makes social media actionable for global enterprises by providing a next-generation solution for analytics and integration of this valuable content with enterprise applications.

CloudSwitch / Burlington, MA
CloudSwitch helps users migrate existing enterprise applications to the cloud simply and securely, without re-architecting the application or changing your management tools.

Copiun / Marlborough, MA
Copiun offers an enterprise-class solution for distributed PC and laptop data management, storage and search.

Digital Reef / Boxborough, MA
Digital Reef is the most scalable and open solution for e-discovery and digital information governance, empowering corporations, law firms, and service providers.
