Re: Innovation award goes to...?
As I was reflecting upon this (and will be taking the HTML code to use for one of the classes I"m teaching), the one from Konton was interesting in its' cross-platform approach which caught my eye.   The key was the "wow effect".   But, of course, one has to see whether they make sense for the broad mission and applicability ever more.

Re: Innovation award goes to...?
They all seemed snappy, but the innovation seemed fairly unclear.  They were all well-presented and seemed real.  I think the network monitoring company, while in itself didn't sound innovative, at least had a "what that means" feel, and I liked that.

Did any stand out as solving a problem in a new way?

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
