Posted by: Norbert J. Kubilus, AITP 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 SonoraIT1(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".
