Web 2.Open Framework Revolution for Enterpreneurs, Inventors and Organizations
He will show with case histories how small-footprint organizations can achieve overhead efficiencies and viral marketing outreach on small budgets and minimal time investments, while making effective use of the cloud.
He will demonstrate how mobile communications and social media channels compel organizations and individuals of all flavors to embrace new forms of web presence, image, interactivity, and workflows in the 21st century, while avoiding traditional “technology traps” such as the “arcade model” and “magic model”. The massive game-change away from innovative software development and business models to social eyeballs, data and service control, and content repositories are of vital importance to entrepreneurial marketing.
Brock Hotaling graduated from Michigan State University in Physics and Political Science, later completing post-graduate courses in software and database architectures at Boston University under Michael Stonebraker, Eugene Wong, and Michael Jackson.
He has 30 years of experience in business technology and social systems modeling, as analyst/architect, as software developer, as IT executive in charge of worldwide systems, and as an entrepreneur and business owner.
He has led a menagerie of pioneering software development and IT groups, such as the first and perhaps only reverse technology exchange from sub-Saharan Africa to Europe ( Ford Motor); the first web-based enterprise inventory, marketing and retail system for Armani Exchange; the world’s first large-scale pure object-oriented MRPII system used by IBM, PepsiCo, and Simplot; a code-refactoring team for Scientific Atlanta set-top box provisioning: and the first combined time-slot and events management system integrated into a major open-source Content Management System (Joomla CMS).
He is a member of the Connecticut CTO Club for chief technology officers, a graduate of the Society of Information Management Executive Leadership program, and a winner of the CQIA Gold Award for innovation. He holds core U.S. and Canadian patents in distributed office automation devices; is author of two patents-pending - 1) Installation-Free Dynamical-Compilation Software Development Engine, and 2) Real-time Browser-Based Content Manager; and author of three patent disclosures - 1) Wireless Adaptive Locating Method, 2) Performance-Optimized Method of Storage, Classification, and Searching of Business Data Elements, and 3) Order Automation System for Standard SEMI-P10 Semiconductor Orders.
An expert on software architectures and development processes, he has pursued recent technology breakthroughs in creating more affordable and effective solutions for mid-market businesses and non-profits, implementing popular open-source platforms such as Drupal, Joomla, and Wordpress as frameworks to move business operations to the cloud with small financial and heuristic footprints.
