GITA returns to Keystone with Thought Leader Symposium on Technology Integration
By Bob Samborski, Executive Director
It is with a great deal of excitement and anticipation that we announce today our first "Thought Leader Symposium on Achieving Business Excellence through Enterprise Technology Integration." Symposium dates are May 16-18, 2012.
This special event has been designed to address the increasing desire of utilities, government agencies and other infrastructure-related organizations to leverage their geospatial investments to better integrate their other existing technology solutions.
If there is a single theme to the many discussions I have had with association members and stakeholders users and vendors alike &3151; since our last annual conference in Grapevine, Texas, it is that the assorted technology solutions they rely upon to fulfill their core missions do not work together as well as they should. As the GITA Board of Directors and staff confronted the challenges of a changing geospatial industry and evolving member needs over the past six months, it became apparent that a wholesale change in the association's organization and educational mission was overdue. If GITA is to continue to be relevant to its members, a "rebirth" of the association is required.
