NSU’s Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences to Hold Special Presentations on Top 5 Technology Trends to Impact Business & IT Leaders in the Future

Fort Lauderdale-Davie, Fla. – Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences (GSCIS) will host special presentations at NSU’s Regional Campuses in Tampa and Orlando, on Aug. 14 and 15, respectively, on the ‘Top 5 Technology Trends to Impact Business & IT Leaders in the Future’.

One of the five technology trends that will be discussed is sensor technology. “In today’s hypercompetitive environment, technology is a major strategic driver for organizations of all types and across all sectors of our economy”, says James Parrish, Ph.D., an assistant professor of Information Systems at GSCIS.  “Those organizations that are aware of future technological trends are going to be able to proactively decide on how to leverage them in their organization and more than likely will leverage them more effectively than those that do it reactively.”
