LightBound Presents Techpoint Tech Thursday November 17, 2011

November 17th TechPoint Tech Thursday
5:00 - 6:30 p.m. at Baker & Daniels, North

Dr. Gerry McCartney
Chief Information Officer 



Dr. McCartney

Dr. McCartney will focus his remarks on "Innovation at Research Universities: Essential for our Future."


He will discuss Purdue's developments in research computing, including the Carter supercomputer being announced this week, and Purdue's success in classroom apps that improve student success.


According to McCartney, changes, especially in content delivery and digital media, mean that universities-like many businesses-must adapt to new realities or cease to be relevant.


Gerry McCartney has served as Purdue University's chief information officer since July 2007.


Under McCartney's leadership, Purdue has developed the nation's largest cyberinfrastructure for research, with three supercomputers listed in the internationally known Top 500 list. Also during his tenure, Purdue has developed some of the nation's most advanced learning and classroom technologies, including Signals and Hotseat. In addition, in 2010 McCartney provided oversight to a campus-wide restructuring of the information technology resources used by the nearly 15,000 faculty and staff on campus.
