IT Innovation Summit at DeAnza College

October 15, 2010, leading Information Technology (IT) Innovation Experts and Education Professionals are meeting to Discuss Innovation Strategies, Ways to Improve Operational Effectiveness and How to Overcome Barriers to IT and Education Pathways to Jobs. This first annual IT Innovation Summit – Silicon Valley will take place from noon to 5pm at DeAnza Community College in Cupertino, CA.

“Many of the most significant corporate success stories have been because of IT innovations,” said Bill Cullifer, event chair, session moderator, and chair of the WhyITNow.org initiative. “Leading executives understand that IT innovation is a major factor for their companies’ bottom lines and future growth. Unfortunately, not all organizational decision-makers understand or do a good job evaluating or implementing the strategic importance of IT innovation.” “We believe what is special about our IT Innovation Summit is that it occurs in a community college setting,” Cullifer said. With an emphasis on education, training and jobs, he noted, “this IT innovation summit in the heart of the Silicon valley, is at the right place and at the right time.”

“IT Innovation has been a top priority for businesses over the last decade,” said Bob Haas, partner and Strategic IT director at A.T. Kearney and event executive committee member. “Yet, most companies consistently talk about the need for IT Innovation, but don’t follow through with consistent, focused investments and executive commitment.”

The IT Innovation Summit ” panel, including MPICT’s James Jones, will focus on IT innovation during a weak economy, thriving in a chaotic economy, gearing up for prosperity and learning about current industry studies, best practices and efforts to improve education and career opportunities in IT.
