Premier Speaker: Running IT Shared Services as a Business

Phil Burdett We often hear that we should run IT like a business.  Koch Business Solutions has been doing that for several years.  This session will cover the key business concepts that have helped make it successful and some of the challenges we experienced along the way.

 Tech Talk Speaker: What is UX?

Kris Krava In recent years, "user experience" has become a rather common term. Everyone, from comedians to grandparents, seems to have adopted it into their lexicon. It makes sense. We all know we are "users" of digital products and we want those "experiences" to be positive. Still, UX is an ironically non-sensical acronym and the practice of UX remains vaguely defined. Adding to the confusion, every UXer seems to have a slightly different definition of the practice, based on what they do personally. Kris will introduce you to core concepts of UX, shedding light on its value to your business and how it can be implemented into your existing processes.

Message from the President E-mail
Written by David Still   
David StillAnother year has drawn to a close with the chapter experiencing exceptional speakers and dinner meeting attendance.

To recap major achievements of 2014:

Our highlight event of 2014 was hosting the AITP 19th Annual National Collegiate Conference (NCC) in Atlanta in April.  The AITP NCC continues to be the single largest event produced by AITP.  I wish to congratulate event co-chairs, Hank Edward and Dawn Tatum, for the best event we have had to-date. Mark your calendars for the 2015 AITP NCC to be held March 26th  to 29th in Omaha, Nebraska.  I highly recommend AITP Atlanta membership promote this event. www.aitp.org/members/group.aspx?id=83279

The AITP Atlanta CIO Roundtable, our banner event of the year, was again a major success.  CIOs were honored to participate in the event.  I wish to thank the AITP members involved in identifying and committing our CIOs for the dinner event.  I anticipate the same CIO roundtable success in 2015.

Another major accomplishment is our partnership with Technology Association of Georgia (TAG).  AITP Atlanta and TAG are jointly promoting our major events of the year.  Both organizations are permitting their membership to be honored at the other association’s dinners and social events.  

The 2015 AITP Board:

I cannot ask for a better board of directors to go into 2015.  I look forward to a successful year with the assistance of these professionals.

Member Attendance and Participation:

AITP Atlanta has a great line up of dinner speakers for 2015 starting with Pete Mastin of Cedexis speaking on Using RUM (Real User Monitoring) Data in Real Time.  Please mark your calendars, register online and recommend a guest for meeting attendance.

I look forward to a great New Year,
