Bob Coppedge  Bob here.  I’ll be speaking May 14th at the Youngstown CPE Day sponsored by The Ohio Society of CPAs.  The topic?  “IT Trends for Small to Medium Business.”

The talk will be similar to the one given back in January (see below), but updated to include recent issues such as the HeartBleed security issue, the aftermath of the withdrawal of support for Windows XP, and some thoughts as to the impact of Microsoft’s new CEO, Sayta Nadella.  Office for your iPad?  You betcha.  More to come?  You betcha by golly!

Also on the list will be next years less sexy retirement.  Say goodbye to Windows Server 2003.

In his quest to bring IT awareness to every corner of the globe, Simplex-IT CEO Bob Coppedge recently shared his expertise with the Ohio Society of CPAs at their recent 2013 Akron CPE Day held at the Akron-Fairlawn Hilton.

Bob presented two sessions: “IT Trends for Small-Medium Businesses in 2013″ and “iPads, Droids and Windows…Tablets for Everybody!”  Both topics were updates of sessions Simplex-IT presented earlier in the year at our regular monthly Lunchinars and, as such, were recorded and appear for your viewing pleasure on our YouTube channel – http://www.youtube.com/user/SimplexITBob?feature=watch

If you would be interested in having Bob make a presentation to your group and help him realize his noble mission, let us hear from you! You can contact us at 234.380.1277 or by emailing Bob@Simplex-IT.com. Enjoy!

Bob addresses the Ohio Society of CPAs

The Ohio Society of CPAs has announced they will be hosting our own Bob Coppedge at their upcoming Akron CPE Day: Spring Conference on June 6, 2013. The conference is designed for CPAs, Managers and Controllers employed by private companies and explores diverse topics important to CPAs and other professional in the corporate arena, such as A&A, Tax, Management and Business trends.

Bob will be presenting two separate presentations which should be of general interest to everyone attending the event. They are TECHNOLOGY UPDATE: Tablets, Windows 8 and More!  and IT Trends in 2013. As is Bob’s typical style, both presentations will be geared to a general, non-technical audience and are designed to inform in a non-intimidating, entertaining and interactive manner.

If you would like more information on the Akron CPE Day: Spring Conference you can go to the Ohio Society of CPAs website www.ohioscpa.com. For more information on Simplex-IT, of course, go to www.Simplex-IT.com.

If you’ve been looking ahead at what you can expect for your business during the New Year you would probably agree with traditional predictions like higher costs, stiffer competition and greater uncertainty. The real question is how can you creatively address these ever-present obstacles to growth and profitability?

Enter Simplex-IT (the theme from Mighty Mouse plays in the background) and our first free Lunchinar for 2011!

Our timely topic, “IT Trends for 2011”, will continue to underscore our commitment to helping you not only understand what new IT technologies are rising to prominence, but more importantly which of those technologies will be helpful in supporting the goals and processes of your business. What better way to learn about these future opportunities than to enjoy a free meal while listening to Simplex-IT’s president, Bob Coppedge, as he peers into his crystal ball.

Join us on January 19, 2011 at Hattie’s Café, 164 N. Main Street in Hudson from 11:30am-1:00PM as we discuss all the hot topics that began to emerge in 2010, plus a few that are just coming to prominence now, and how they will dramatically affect how everyone does business in the New Year.

Presented with the insight and humor that have become the signature of our monthly gatherings, this free event is one of the easiest, most relaxed ways in which you can keep up with, and maximize the impact of, this indispensable segment of your business operations.

Topics we anticipate discussing include (but are not necessarily limited to):

  • Virtualization
  • Security
  • Cloud Computing
  • Backup and Disaster Recovery
  • Business Continuity

Because seating is limited, and we like to know how much food to prepare, please RSVP to John@Simplex-IT.com or by calling 234.380.1277.

Make the monthly Simplex-IT Lunchinars one of your New Year’s resolutions and join us. You’ll be glad you did!
