Friday, October 24, 2014

The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) created the Excalibur Awards in 2005 to recognize and call attention to Georgia’s “tech-enabled” companies that demonstrate exemplary competency in utilizing technology to enhance their businesses. The best of these companies find great ways to use current and oftentimes disruptive technology to facilitate competitive advantage.  Our award winners are a very diverse group, including Kennesaw State University, Achieve!t, Mercedes-Benz Buckhead, UPS and the National Monuments Foundation.

 Applications are encouraged from all industries and awards are granted based on the following criteria:

  • Complexity of the Problem - How the business problem was resolved or business enhancement achieved through the innovative use of technology.
  • Creativity of the Solution - How the technology is being used to conduct business differently (highlight unconventional usage and impact it had on how customers and employees conduct business).
  • Return on Investment (ROI)/Business Results - Were savings or increased productivity realized in cost, time, people, capacity, production volume and other areas?

If your company uses technology to create a competitive advantage, apply for a prestigious Excalibur award.  If your company produces technology that others have utilized, in the past year, to solve a complex problem, nominate the company that created that ROI.  Act today because the deadline is August 29th at 5pm.

 If you have any questions, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or click here to directed to the Excalibur website.

NOTE: AITP Professional Members can register for the same price as a TAG Member.

Sep 2014 Chapter Dinner Recap E-mail
Written by Frank Raimondo   

Scott SarrisScott Sarris of Syzygy Risk Sciences gave a great presentation on risk in the enterprise.  While many companies depend on intuitive or subjective measures of risk, Scott suggested a better approach using a more objective and systematic approach to analyzing risk.   Much of the discussion centered on some of the recent breaches at companies like Target and Home Depot.

All told, this was a very informative and at times entertaining discussion
