CANCELED – March PDM – What Inquiring Management Minds Need to Know: The Cloud, Artificial Intelligence, and Security

March 11, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT


Tom Myers, CPIM

What Inquiring Management Minds Need to Know: The Cloud, Artificial Intelligence, and Security

  • What is the Cloud? Are we in it? Can my business use it?
  • Will robots take over our jobs? Can artificial intelligence help my organization?
  • How can I protect my technology and information at home? How can I make sure I have an organization that is safe from hackers?
  • I will answer these questions and more as we explore these subjects from a business manager’s perspective, not from an IT perspective.
  • In addition, I’ll offer many tips about these topics to help make you both smarter in your personal and business lives and more valuable to your organization.
  • Whether or not you attended the recent ASCM/ASQ presentation about blockchain, come and find out about these other hot topics in the technology realm.
