    SIM CFL Emerging Technologies Special Interest Group Discussion

    As technology leaders our organizations come to us for answers. The field is so vast no one person can know everything. How do we expand our knowledge and become better versed in technologies that are emerging? Yes, there are conferences but many times those are sponsored by vendors that are pushing their products and services. We want to create a place where our members can talk about their challenges, successes, share ideas, learn and knowledge share in a safe, confidential, vendor neutral unbiased environment.

    As we’ll be looking to meet monthly members can join in when it works for them. As the group evolves, we’ll be looking for volunteers that would like to present, share a challenge their organization overcame, bring a problem and talk through solutions, share experiences that could help a fellow member, etc.
