The Future of IT and AITP's Role
Norbert J. Kubilus, CCP MBCS
Association Immediate Past President
Were you at the Fall 2012 Region 5 Conference and the Annual Meeting of
the Members last October? Then you heard me speak about the future of
IT and AITP's role supporting current and future business IT
professionals. Around the same time, AITP leadership began exploring
collaboration with a sister IT organization in Sonora, Mexico -- Asociación Sonorense de Profesionistas en Tecnologías de Información A.C. (ASPTICS) -- which Chuck Brown (Region 1 President) discussed in an Information Executive article last December (see http://www.aitp.org/news/news.asp?id=110645
As part of our collaboration, I was asked to submit an article as 2012 Association President for ASPTICS' magazine
Sonora iT Innovación y Tecnología (SonoraIT). The theme for the inaugural issue in April 2013 is
"El Futuro de las Tecnologías de Información y el rol de la AITP y la
ASPTICS" ("The Future of Information Technology and the Role of AITP and
ASPTICS"). My article "The Future of IT and AITP's Role" appears on page 30 in English [reference SonoraIT 1(1):30f (Abril-Junio de 2013)].
"The article of AITP is the main article cover. We are preparing a web
page for the Magazine. We left the article of AITP in English, because
it is a soft skill needed for all the professionals; this is the
message," according to Editorial Director Héctor Gutiérrez. ASPTICS
President Manuel Bernal also wrote,
"Please consider our magazine as an opportunity to write any article
you consider important for AITP, feel free to invite members to do it.
Again thanks for your support."
As I posted on the ASPTICS Facebook page, "Felicitaciones a ASPTICS sobre la publicación de su nueva revista
Sonora iT Innovación y Technologia. Tuve el placer de aportar el artículo
de portada El Futuro de las Tecnologías de Información" -- Congratulations ASPTICS on the publication of your new magazine
Sonora iT Innovación y Technologia. I was pleased to provide the cover story "The Future of Information Technology".
