How Every Business can win with IoT, Real Time Data, and Agile Development
Connecticut Chapter, National Association of Corporate Directors
January 10, 2019
The rapidly growing availability of new data sources from the Internet of Things (IoT) is creating tremendous pressure on companies of all sizes to become “real-time enterprises” in order to compete effectively. And while “every company is a technology company", that doesn't mean that every company can invest in culture change, collaborative practices, and emerging technologies like major technology businesses.

While businesses of all sizes must improve their customer experiences, grow by developing digitally enabled products and services, and enable a data-driven organization, smaller and medium sized organizations have to be more creative and selective on how to develop applications, how to invest in analytics, and where to innovate with the Internet of Things and other emerging technologies.

Hear from "CIO-turned-digital guru" Isaac Sacolick, President of StarCIO and author of the Amazon bestseller Driving Digital on the culture, practices, and technologies that will enable every business to win in this disruptive, rapidly-changing environment.

INTERACTIVE ROUNDTABLE & PANEL - Diving Into Talent Acquisition, Diversity, and Retention
SINC
March 21, 2022
In most markets, there is an abundance of open IT jobs with fewer people able to fill them – and the positions are getting more expensive. Working remotely is the norm, but not optimal (usually). There is less off-shoring and more resources are focused locally or within the same hemisphere.

Additionally, we are still not recruiting enough woman and minorities into the rank and file, especially senior IT roles, and we’re losing talent to major tech hubs.

Join us at the roundtable with your peers as we dive into solutions to tackle the following challenges:

How do you scale staff / team without losing them to major tech hubs?
How do you create more diversity – not only among race and gender – but diversity of thought – Old vs New Thinking?
How do we mentor universities to implement actionable steps for supplying more IT talent?
