On Tuesday, September 17, Southeastern hosted global and national leaders from DXC Technology and Amazon Web Services for a cloud-computing symposium.
The symposium, which was free and open to the public, was sponsored by Southeastern’s College of Science and Technology and Workforce Talent Initiative, as well as the Louisiana Department of Economic Development FastStart Program.
Guest speakers included Vice President and Global Sales Leader for AWS Integration Practice at DXC Technology Todd Carey; Director and General Manager for the New Orleans Digital Transformation Center Terrell Boynton; and Director of AWS Certification and Education Programs Kevin E. Kelly representing Amazon Web Services.
“This panel of experts discussed the explosive growth of cloud computing, the impact on businesses and everyone’s daily lives, and the next generation of skill sets that faculty, students, technology professionals and everyday end-users will need,” said WTI Program Coordinator Paul Forbes. “This was a tremendous opportunity for the general public and for all Southeastern students from every academic discipline to gain insights into future technologies.”
A networking reception immediately followed the symposium.
