The event focused on techniques for measuring ROI (return on investment) and best practices for maximizing the benefits of utilizing current GIS solutions and cloud infrastructure. There were several speakers from Esri and Esri Business Partners, including Adam Carnow (Esri), Harry Moore (Esri), and Timo Luostarinen (president of Quartic Solutions).
We recently participated in a panel that answered students' questions about working in the GIS industry.
Along with SDG&E, Helix Environmental, and Black Sage Environmental, Quartic Solutions discussed topics centered around working in the real world for students interested in the GIS industry.
HERE ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS:
Community outreach is very important to Quartic Solutions- in fact, being involved in our local GIS industry has helped us form our amazing team.
Our CEO, Jodi Luostarinen, was invited to join the Esri Partner Advisory Council (PAC).
The PAC is a vital organization created in 2011. It is made up of business executives who were selected based on their exceptional leardership qualities. It is crucial for the ongoing development of the Esri Partner Network. PAC members have the responsibility to represent the entire Esri Partner & Alliance channel, sharing their experiences and recommendations to drive mutually beneficial improvements in the program. In return, Esri has a strong commitment to act on feedback from the PAC, making the group the defacto "board of directors" for the partner community.
The PAC meets in person during the Esri Partner Conference, Esri Annual User Conference, and an Annual Fall Meeting. Otherwise, the PAC gathers online for an hour on the 4th Tuesday of each month.
The Fall Annual Meeting is coming up- this year's meeting is being held at Esri HQ in Redlands from November 11-12 2019.
