Source One Technology, Inc. is proud to announce our participation in Wisconsin’s preeminent conference for the K-20 educational sector. This will be our first time at BrainStorm 2016 (17.0).

The three-day conference, which runs between February 28th and March 1st, has a Vendor Expo that is only 4 hours. The rest of the time involves hands-on Workshops, Roundtable, and Breakouts. Source One Technology is happy to announce our acceptance as both a Booth Exhibitor, and a Presenter, during the breakout sessions!

Many of our clients are Schools and School Districts (Public, Private, and Charter) in the greater Milwaukee, Waukesha, Kenosha, and Racine areas.  We have found that technology people in these organizations respect and appreciate our personalized and unique approach to IT consulting. The mission of Brainstorm strongly encourages mutual participation of vendors and Educational IT people in the Breakout Sessions, without typical sales presentation.  Naturally our approach to partnership, not salesmanship, aligns nicely with the mission of Brainstorm.

Source One Technology reserved a booth to maximize our exposure to the conference attendees. The limited four-hour window gives us little time to meet as many K-20 technical people as possible. With our message and demonstrated testimonials we are optimistic that Source One Technology will resonate with many of the participants.

As with other vendors, we had to petition the conference for inclusion in the Breakout sessions. It seems that the selection committee was intrigued with our proposal as we were chosen to present at one of the 45-minute Breakouts. Our session is called,  An Ounce of Monitoring – A Pound of Prevention.  We are partnering with the Tech Director (Ryan Jonas) of Greendale School District to describe how system-wide monitoring is useful in strategic, tactical planning, and problem-solving. While we will be focusing on a particular product, we will emphasize monitoring in general, and have examples of other solutions that we have seen and use.

While this conference focuses on the Education sector, Source One Technology sees this as one of many outlets for our mission and message. We hope to share “Partnership without Salesmanship” with other industry conferences in the future!
