All “technically inclined” members of the Haas community are invited to the 5th annual Fisher Technology Faire on May 15, when chief information officers and senior managers can learn about what leading-edge companies are doing in data virtualization, data management in the cloud, and streamlined sales communication using high-tech software.

Jim Spitze, executive director of the Haas School’s Fisher CIO Leadership Program, has lined up seven “highly promising” pre-IPO tech companies, whose top IT executives will introduce their new products and answer questions from the audience.

Companies that will be presenting include: Actifio, Appcelerator, Apptio, GoodData, OKTA, Seismic, and ToutApp.

“It’s a wonderful way to get a quick snapshot of what is on the technical horizon,” Spitze says, describing the fair as a “rather intense and highly interesting day.”

The fair will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 15 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Foster City. The event, which has nearly sold out in the past, is open to the Haas community but an RSVP is required to Tickets are free for paid Fisher CIO members and $75 for invited guests.
