Murray State University will host the inaugural meeting of the Professional Organization of Information and Network Technology on Feb. 21, at 6:30 p.m. in the Freed Curd auditorium of the Collins Industry and Technology Building. P.O.I.N.T was created as a forum for information technology and networking professionals to gather several times each year with opportunities to hear from industry leaders about shared interests in fast paced technology careers.
MSU’s Regional Business and Innovation Center, the Program of Distinction in Telecommunications Systems Management, and the College of Business and Public Affairs’ Computer Science and Information Systems program will host the group’s meetings. These three distinct groups hope to produce a large and influential group of professionals from the surrounding region that are interested in a variety of topics and that can learn from each other through opportunities provided by P.O.I.N.T. All P.O.I.N.T. activities will be free of charge and companies are asked to promote the P.O.I.N.T meetings to individuals in their company who might be interested in joining.
The inaugural meeting on Feb. 21 will feature a presentation from VMware, a global leader in virtualization solutions. One of the fastest growing software companies in the world, VMware’s popularity is increasing as companies continue to rely on VMware products to reduce capital and operating expenses, ensure business continuity, strengthen security and conserve energy. Along with the arranged networking time, there will also be a short meeting to discuss the future of P.O.I.N.T and topics for following meetings.
