In December, I once again wrote the features for AW's Automation Team and Technologies departments.
For the Automation Team, I wrote a feature called Managing Large-scale Automation Projects. The article is a primer on the project management of these projects and how it determines their success or failure.
My Technologies department feature, Scripting and Integration, discusses the use of batch information processes.
Gary Mintchell, AW's Editor-in-Chief, has asked me to write the Automation Team and Technologies departments for the 2010 January and February issues of Automation World.
My feature, The Challenge of Coordinating District-Wide Communications, appears in the December issue of School CIO. The article discusses communications systems and strategies employed by school districts and covers such technologies as VoIP and intelligent mobile devices.
School CIO provides high-quality ideas, strategies, and resources for senior-level technology leaders in K-12 school districts. School CIO is produced by the editors of Tech & Learning, the leading publication in the education technology market for over 25 years, and techLEARNING, the essential online resource for technology-using educators. In 2005, School CIO received a Gold Award for Editorial Excellence from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE). SchoolCIO.com was also recognized with a Bronze Award by ASBPE in 2007 as Best New Business-to-Business Web Site Publication.
I'm proud to be a valued contributor to School CIO. I look forward to contributing additional features in 2010.
