GATN speaker event focuses on using latest digital technology to edge competitors
The Greater Alpharetta Tech Network continues its quarterly lecture series with Rich Napoli, CEO of Alpharetta-based Object Frontier Software.
Napoli has provocatively labeled his lecture “Avoiding Extinction in the Digital Age” and will speak on using the newest digital technology to “outrun” the competition.
GATN is a nonprofit association with a mission to engage and grow the thriving Greater Alpharetta technology community.
GATN President Karen Cashion said she was especially happy to get Napoli as the third speaker in the 2015 series.
“Rich Napoli and Object Frontier Software are a perfect example of the tech innovation that is happening right here in Alpharetta,” Cashion said. “They build innovative custom software using the latest technologies, which include social, mobile, cloud and data analytics technologies.
“Cutting edge is an overused expression but in the case of OFS, they truly are cutting edge.”
OFS customers identify the parameters of what they need from technology to fill a need or accomplish a goal at a specified speed, and OFS will build it.
They build custom software to the customer’s specification.
OFS was recently named to Inc. magazine’s 2015 list of 5,000 fastest-growing privately held companies in the U.S. It has grown an astonishing 253 percent in the last three years.
OFS has created 275 new jobs in that three-year span and currently employs more than 500 people worldwide, Cashion said.
“Rich will share his insights on how companies are completely re-envisioning their business and relationships with customers using the latest digital products to drive revenues in new ways.
“He is a highly accomplished and innovative tech leader, and we are really honored to present him as GATN’s featured speaker.”
Napoli will be discussing how companies today outperform their competitors by using the latest digital products to drive revenue.
This event will also feature tours of the Microsoft Technology Center in Alpharetta showcasing MTC’s purpose-built collaborative environments that provide access to innovative technologies and world-class expertise.
The purpose is to allow customers to envision, design and deploy solutions to address their business needs.
Participants will also have the opportunity to meet some of the MTC solution architects that work side-by-side with customers to solve technology challenges.
