Mar 22, 2011, 16:42 ET from INPUT

RESTON, Va., March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Technology vendors of Los Angeles, Calif. will gain a better understanding of the local area's emergent information technology (IT) market, with Deltek's INPUT Business Unit and TechAmerica's Los Angeles Top Technology Leaders state and local breakfast. Emphasizing city and county IT trends and challenges, the executive event will serve to enlighten contractors from the Los Angeles vicinity on current market innovations and opportunities, while helping prepare business for potential pitfalls and challenges. Scheduled for Thursday, March 31, at the Los Angeles Millennium Biltmore Hotel, the event will present technology vendors with the chance to network with peers, interact with local executives and gain critical insight into the area's growing IT environment.

Reinforcing the event's title, the breakfast will also feature presentations from top technology leaders, including:

  • Richard Sanchez, Chief Information Officer, Los Angeles County
  • Randi Levin, Chief Technology Officer, City of Los Angeles
  • Ronald Chandler, Chief Information Officer, Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD)

Additionally, Chris Dixon, manager of State and Local Industry Analysis, will present on behalf of Deltek's INPUT Business Unit to reveal both the leading opportunities for Southern Californian contractors, and the major state and national trends that are expected to drive IT consumption for 2011. Providing the west-coast audience with inside analysis from Deltek's INPUT Business Unit, Dixon will demonstrate critical forecasting to reveal potential new IT solutions. "Since 2010, California has elected a new governor who has embarked on an aggressive deficit-reduction program," said Dixon. "Not only are Los Angeles city and county governments working overtime to deal with their own shortfalls, local schools are experiencing hiring freezes, layoffs, and program reductions. All of these trends will emphatically drive IT officials to seek creative, long-term solutions to automate processes and boost performance."  Moreover, Dixon and the other presenters aim to bring new ideas and solutions to the Los Angeles area, to better enable IT vendors a strategic position in the local contracting landscape.
