Conference Examines the Case for Technological Innovation

In this economic era of operating lean and mean, risk aversion can overshadow the mandate to re-examine how technology can keep innovation alive and well.

“The issue is how do you stay innovative and still meet your numbers?” said Bob Slapin, executive director of the San Diego Software Industry Council, which will sponsor its annual “Managing Innovation” symposium on May 15. “In a tight economy, you’ve got to look at leveraging technology to better collaborate with customers and business partners, and to allow them into the innovation process.”

Matt Porta, a partner at IBM Global Business Services, will deliver a keynote on open innovation platforms. “This conference showcases speakers from companies that have taken risks in innovation and have both the battle scars and successful track record to show for it,” Porta said.

A representative from Intel, for example, will talk about how the company uses software to gather feedback from customers and business partners and design better chips.

“As you bring your customers in, you lower the cost of innovation and deliver to customers an improved product based on their needs,” Slapin said.

Event hours are from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at AMN Healthcare Auditorium, 12400 High Bluff Drive, San Diego. Seats range from $75 to $95 and can be reserved at www://sdsic.org or by calling (858) 793-6655.
