  • Starting up at a 12,000 employee company spinning off from Kimberly Clark……and there was no IT department
  • What Kimberly Clark planned and we thought we were getting vs reality of what happened during the spin-off

  • Datacenter migration – original cloud migration plans
  • Network separation
  • Rationalization and Transformation:  Transform the IT Systems inherited from KC into a business driver for Halyard
This will be an invaluable dinner meeting with great topics on relevant challenges pertinent to all levels of technology professionals!  Please join us for what will be an outstanding presentation!

Georgette PraterIt’s an exciting time for the AITP Atlanta Chapter.  It’s been a productive year thus far and we’ve accomplished a great deal. We have such an awesome Board of Directors and Sponsors this year that have contributed to some exciting and innovative chapter meetings and presentations.

In June we ended our 2nd quarter with a bang by reintroducing our AITP Women in Tech Leadership Forum. We had the pleasure of hosting Teena Piccione, (AT&T), Jennifer Bonnett (Technology entrepreneur, ATDC and StartupChicks), Lisa McFarlin (Verizon Telematics) and Lisa Bronson (First Data Corp) to our stage. I had the awesome opportunity to host this panel and discuss a diverse array of topics with these extraordinary ladies.  The panel shared their thoughts on mentorship, best practices, Apple versus Android and we had an opportunity to explore the ambition, technical skills and boardroom savvy it takes to rise above your peers to be successful in Technology. It was an extremely insightful and invigorating discussion.
