Charles Fred, President, Breakaway Group, Xerox Change of course creates need and need creates opportunity
enclosure-voice 1437_ 9/16/13 - Larry is here at the ACG Denver's monthly luncheon and is talking with keynote speaker Charles Fred the group president of Xerox Hospital Provider Solutions (Breakaway Group). In this role, he leads the organization that serves their hospital and physician clients through a comprehensive portfolio of solutions that help healthcare providers apply, manage and use technology that simplifies caregiver workloads. They help doctors and nurses learn software faster and safely. Biggest opportunity in healthcare is change. "Change, of course creates need, and creates opportunity. As a nation we are woefully out of step with technology today in healthcare. We're behind, so technology companies should be able to be born almost instantly to address some of those needs. Our population is ageing quite quickly. Ten thousand people a day turn 65 in the U.S. and that will continue for the next 18 years! That population is living a lot longer than we ever expected and so there are long term care needs." Fred joined Xerox in 2011, when the company acquired The Breakaway Group. During his first 18 months with Xerox, his organization’s revenue grew by 300 percent, while at the same time expanding his operating profit margin to more than 30 percent. Before The Breakaway Group, Fred was CEO of Omega Performance, culminating in a successful sale to IIR, Inc., in 1998. The publication of his best-selling book, Breakaway, in 2002 initiated a 'movement' from the thousands that have read it. Today, many leading universities use the text...

Ray Hutchins, Founder, Denver Cyber Security The biggest problem for companies is between the keyboard and the chair
enclosure-voice 1438_ 9/16/13 - Larry talked with Ray Hutchins, a serial entrepreneur, president of TiE Rockies and has several companies, including Denver Cyber Security, involved in web site development, SEO, and cyber security. Ray Hutchins said, "If you want to be a criminal, be a cyber criminal - because you won't get caught. And the guys running the business are asleep at the wheel, I'm sorry to say. They don't understand cyber security, they don't understand the process of defending their corporate crown jewels. They don't know how to manage their IT people to get the job done - It is a big problem for the country and for the world. So what to do? Coming from Def Con again, The biggest problem for any company is between the keyboard and the chair. It's your people and these people can be tricked very easily to let the 'enemy' into your network. A hacker can easily attack your network with a fishing attack, with a fake email from the CEO, CFO, CIO... it's going to come from one of the leaders in the company and it's going to go to company personnel. When that email comes in the employees are going to open it up to see what their leaders are saying. But, they're not going to be trained to check and see if it is indeed an authentic email. Once they open that email up and click on the link they've been directed to, BING, the hacker is in and started the journey inside your network." This is Part 2 of 2...

Publishing World Turned Upside-down
Bill Van Orsdel, CoFounder, CMO, WaveCloudenclosure-voice 1440_ 9/23/13 - Larry had a discussion with Bill Van Orsdel, Co-Founder & CMO of WaveCloud, tells us that they started WaveCloud with the idea that now there are only two parties left that are important in the publishing world. They are the people that write the books, the content generators and the people that read the books, the consumers. All the other people in the value chain [editors to publishers, book buyers, marketing and PR people] all of those people, they still have a role to play but maybe not in as organized way as they used to. There's been a big separation between authors and readers. That separation is this idea in the past, if you wanted to publish your own book, you had to find an agent that would take a chance on you. You had to find a publisher willing to risk their money to bring your book to market and then that publisher had to help you finish your book - produce it into a saleable product and then they had to convince book buyers at book stores to buy your book who would then stock your book for maybe 90 days. That's the old way. The new way, to write your book, get it formatted, get it into an electronic format in an electronic bookstore like Amazon or Barnes & Nobel and your book has much longer than 90 days to prove itself on the shelf. It can sit there virtually forever. So in this turmoil, it's completely turning the publishing world upside down and...

The Cloud, the future, education....
Jack Dangermond, Founder/President, ESRIenclosure-voice 1442_ 9/23/13 - PART 2 OF 2 ...with Keynote Speaker, Jack Dangermond, president and founder of ESRI . The CDOT was their customer No. 9 - Colorado was always an early leader here in the state for government, but also for business, and utilities. Telephone companies would buy our tools and then develop 'computational geography' as Jack calls it, to help them make maps of their assets and then guide them in their business, and this saves a huge amount of money. Jack said, "What's occurring now is this is going to the Cloud and in that mode is allowing our users in public sector to share with other users, their maps. So they're building shared services and using each others' information - doing integration of these maps, like overlaying but they're digital and they're analytical. So I can do quantitative analysis to bring information together from the private sector and the public sector and make better decisions. This web GIS Cloud is really transformational." Larry asked Jack what he saw as the biggest opportunities and challenges coming in the next few years.  Jack said, "That's the recurring question. I think we as a society need to invest in education of the kids, K thru 12." William James Adams, better known as, is an American recording artist, songwriter, entrepreneur, voice actor, DJ, record producer, and philanthropist, best known as one of the founding members of the hip hop/pop band, The Black Eyed Peas. WikipediaJack told us about his friend, will-i-am, a wonderful, successful musician who is investing into East LA, the high school where he grew up, building STEM Education Centers in the schools and Jack has been helping him with that. Building the future workforce so instead of investing in basketball courts or football stadiums in high schools, but not really allowing kids to have an opportunity - a few make it into the NBA or the National Football. He has the vision of building geek centers where they could actually learn programming because kids in the inner city and the suburbs, they want to have a future, and to have a future they have to have skills. That's one answer to the daunting question of the haves and have-not's.  It's also an answer to the 'we don't have enough technical people, we have to go to India or China or outsource stuff'.

Jack Dangermond, President, Esri The world's sixth largest privately held software company
enclosure-voice 1436_ 9/16/13 - Larry Nelson is here at the CTA APEX Conference, where he caught up with Keynote Speaker, Jack Dangermond, president and founder of ESRI (originally Environmental Systems Research Institute) a startup back in the '60s. Jack had acquainted himself with a few ways to do selling, so he sold what he was doing which was making computer maps for people. His business really started out as a service for hire - computerizing maps, overlaying maps, analyzing the information and helping to determine where to buy property, or place a retail store, or what areas ought to go into conservation zones, or support land use planning, and people loved that idea. So over those years Jack grew his company from basically nothing up to about 100 people. Well, people not only loved the idea, they wanted to do it themselves so they asked Jack to sell them his software. So he did, it was open source software at the time. "But," Jack says, "it wasn't very good, frankly." They went on to develop the first Geographic Information System, GIS. It morphed over the decades and today Esri has about 350,000 customers, all over the world, that use this to make their maps or manage their geographic information. These are not consumer maps but enterprise focused where people and companies use the graphic information to make decisions in their company. ...Listen for more details...This is Part 1 of 2.

Colorado disaster… Rainfall records swamped
1439_ 9/16/13 - Thank you to all those volunteers, rescuers, the police, fire departments, National Guard, and thousands of other volunteers.
...continuing heavy rains expected through Tuesday 9/17! Many cities, counties and towns are still in initial rescue mode and have not specifically asked for help. While volunteer efforts are appreciated, at this point we would like to direct everyone to donate cash to the United Way, Red Cross and Salvation Army.
     Four days of rainfall across Colorado’s Front Range produced massive flooding that’s marooned thousands of people, inundated many key roads, and damaged countless homes and businesses. The immense amount of water that fell arrived at upper levels via a plume of deep moisture that surged northward from the tropics. At lower levels, the pattern drove moist air from the Great Plains toward the foothills, where it was forced up slope. Together, these features blanketed the Front Range with the soggiest air mass ever recorded at Denver in September. Between Thursday 9/12 and Friday 9/13, a total of 9.08” was measured at the official Boulder site. From 6 PM Monday 9/9 through 6 PM Friday 9/13, the grand total was a whopping 21+” in SE Boulder. At the time of this writing, the atmosphere produced near-constant rain in large amounts for three-plus days across most of the semiarid High Plains and adjoining foothills of the Front Range.      Boulder has the greatest potential for flash flooding of any community in Colorado. If you live, work or play in Boulder, you are at risk. The flood that swept down Boulder Creek was a 1-in-100 year event, The terms "10 year", "50 year", "100 year" and "500 year" floods are used to describe the estimated probability of a flood, meaning this storm was a proverbial 100-year flood.
      Before reaching the City of Boulder, the flash floods claimed highways and homes and towns all through the canyons including Jamestown, Estes Park, Lyons, Loveland, and so many others. Marching on it carried the destruction downstream through Longmont, Loveland, Erie,Evans and Weld county. Simultaneously Commerce City and Aurora were slammed - Castle Rock and Colorado Springs - in fact from the state's southern border straight up to the northern border and beyond. Future forecasts... continuing heavy rains through Tuesday 9/17! Many cities, counties and towns are still in initial rescue mode and have not specifically asked for help. While volunteer efforts are appreciated, at this point we would like to direct everyone to donate cash to the United Way, Red Cross and Salvation Army. The National Guard is amazing and rescued at least 1,200 people on Saturday. More rain is expected, flood danger continues. Be sure to sign up for Emergency Alerts, more information and links below...
