Third Annual Ottawa County Innovation and Technology Forum

April 29, 2016

We’re excited to invite you to this year’s forum. Each year we try to bring you information on some of the hottest and most impactful topics. This year, we are bringing in nationally known expert, Kevin DeSouza to talk about The Promise and Challenge of Big Data. To supplement Kevin’s presentation, there will be a panel discussion to answer your questions about this topic. To bring it to a more local level, Zak Tomich from the State of Michigan Department of Technology Management and Budget will be delivering a presentation on the State’s Big Data initiative. The Innovation component of our forum will be presented by Seth Starner, President of New North Center for Design in Business. Seth’s topic, The Half-Life Assumptions: Bringing Empathy to Big Data, fits this year’s theme and he will also lead participants through an exercise to enhance the experience. The day will wrap up with a presentation by Phil Bertolini, Deputy County Administrator/CIO for Oakland County. Phil is a dynamic speaker who promises to deliver an entertaining and thought provoking perspective on Technology in government. Throughout the day, Sponsors and Exhibitors will be available to present, demonstrate and explain the latest products and services that can assist your organization in achieving its goals. We hope you’ll consider joining us on April 29.

The schedule is being finalized and more information will be available soon. If you have questions, please contact Dave Hulst at 616-738-4831 or, or Shannon McGoran at 616-738-4067 or
