CIOs, understandably pressed for time and weary of pushy vendors, like to gather in places where they can learn, network with each other and clearly understand how companies are solving their problems. At last night’s Georgia CIO Leadership Association event, Sandy Hofmann (Turknett Leadership Group) and Cindy Cheatham (ATDC) hosted a forum in which the pain points of CIOs were addressed by some of Georgia’s brightest emerging companies. Representatives from Camrbia Security, Oversight Systems, Walking Stick Solutions, Asankya Networks, and Scientric gave succinct lessons in how their solutions solve major IT enterprise problems. Richard DeMillo (Georgia Tech College of Computing) gave an overview of how the educational technology landscape has shifted over the past 15 years, and Darryl Lemecha (ChoicePoint) spoke briefly about the importance of encouraging CIOs to buy from local providers when possible in order to grow Georgia’s economy. Seen in the crowd were Ed Godshall (American Fiber Systems), Frank Bell and Rebecka Turner (Intellinet), Dana Kruse (Deloitte), John Dunbar (EMS Technologies), Marian Lucia (Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta), Guido Sacci (CompuCredit), Brian Shield (The Weather Channel), John Seral (GE Energy), and Steve Winterbottom (Scientific-Atlanta).
