BYU eBusiness Day Nov. 11 will examine technological innovations

The fall eBusiness Day at Brigham Young University's Marriott School of Management, “eGlobal: Connect Locally, Act Globally,” will demonstrate how the world is being connected through technology. The event will be held on Friday, Nov. 11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the second floor atrium and in room 251 of the Tanner Building.

Two keynote speakers, Paul Allen and Josh James, will discuss how people and organizations around the world are connecting via technology and the Internet. Allen will be speaking on “Approaching Omniscience: Access to All Information and toAall the People in the World” at 9 a.m.

“You can learn anything and meet anyone using the power of technology,” said Allen, a serial/parallel entrepreneur who seeks to improve the world through business enterprises. He is founder of two companies, Infobases and MyFamily.com, listed on the Inc. 500 list of the “Fastest-Growing Private Companies” in the United States.

James, CEO and co-founder of Omniture, will be speaking at 11 a.m. Omniture is a privately held, $40 million business specializing in on-demand online marketing services. Omniture provides software that analyzes Web site traffic to improve the effectiveness of companies’ Web sites. James has extensive experience as an entrepreneur, co-founding and managing three other high-tech companies prior to Omniture.

Throughout the day companies will display new technologies that improve lives and help keep people connected around the world. These companies include: Targus, Intel, Dell, Omniture, Cingular, NextPage, Verizon, Amazon.com, Clearplay, Sprint, Cingular, Verizon and Agilix.

The eBusiness Day will conclude with the final judging of the Omniture Web Analytics Competition held at 2 p.m. in 251 Tanner Building.

BYU’s Marriott School houses the Kevin and Debra Rollins Center for eBusiness. The center, which is run by a mix of BYU faculty and students, works to stay abreast of technology and studies how it impacts people and business organizations. The semiannual eBusiness Day events give students and faculty a chance to become more involved with the electronic and technological business environment through seminars, workshops and competitions.

The Rollins Center fosters the study and teaching of how information technology is changing business and management processes. It serves as an intermediary between the high-tech business sector and BYU faculty and students—forming new partnerships and undertaking joint research projects.

The center also works to attract and maintain the highest quality faculty and staff; develop new course materials; expand the number of e-commerce classes; and provide students with new employment opportunities, internships and field study projects.
