Digital Marketing — Tools and Methodologies

Joint presentation IEEE Ottawa Section Consultants Network and IET Ottawa LN

Not your Grandmother’s Marketing – The impact of SaaS and AI

 Since Google’s arrival on the scene in the late 1990’s,
marketing took a turn to digital, never to look back again.  With the proliferation of technologies such
as Artificial Intelligence, and novel business models like
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), marketing tools and techniques continue to
rapidly evolve.  Our eyes glued to
screens of devices of all sizes, we are at the same time a willing victim and a
reluctant participant in the marketing dance in both our professional and
personal lives.  These combined bring a
huge democratization of marketing for businesses, allowing for successful
growth in the most unlikely locations.

Speaker: Dobrila Rancic Moogk

Dobrila is VP Marketing at Giatec Scientific, an IoT company
revolutionizing concrete testing.
Through her work in and with start-ups on strategic marketing, Dobrila’s
passion for accelerating commercialization of innovation results in significant
growth and scale-up.  This is combined
with her drive to lead her university students to stellar career starts by
passing on her cutting-edge SaaS marketing skills to the next generation of
business leaders.

 Over her 25 years’
experience in the high-tech industry spanning North America
and Europe, she held marketing and R&D leadership
positions with dynamic corporations such as Bell-Northern Research, LSI
Logic, and MOSAID, among others.  Dobrila
has a BSEE, as well as Master of Engineering, and MBA degrees from University
of Ottawa.

 She is a member of
the Board of Directors of Invest Ottawa and Bayview Yards, the Community Impact
Cabinet at United Way East Ontario,
past chair of Volunteer Ottawa, and past vice-chair of the Women in Engineering
and Computer Science at University of
Ottawa.

IEEE CANADA TECHNOLOGY LEADERSHIP WEBINAR SERIES – II
May 21 @ 14:00 – 15:00

Speaker: Suzanne
Grant of Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance

Topic: #TechnologyNorth – the gold standard

Suzanne envisions a world where a Made in Canada #TechnologyNorth seal is the global gold standard of quality, synonymous with leather shoes Made in Italy, grapes harvested in Champagne, and autos designed and manufactured in Germany. Canada’s world class innovators have delivered excellence decade over decade. Without adequate support of the sector through COVID19, this vision may be a non-starter. During economic difficulties Canada has traditionally bailed out traditional auto and airline industries, and innovative technologies like the AVRO Arrow, Nortel, Research In Motion, Cognos and aspiring young companies were orphaned. By failing to protect our  innovators, Canada traded in future traction of Canada’s valuable intellectual property. America, Europe and the Middle East hungry to prosper from our bargain IP and talent came out the winners. Each downturn has taken at least a decade for technology to reinvent itself and rebound.

We have a track record of great beginnings and a more mature Canada can weather the storms and aim for bigger commercial finish lines, where prosperity and job abundance translate to big returns. Before COVID19 struck, we were hitting our stride with record venture investments and sought after talent from leading education institutions. Canada’s Innovation Agenda demonstrated a maturing future view aiming to lead. This is no time to retreat! The government has invested on behalf of Canadians and accountable for a $36B year over year injection into innovation via universities and commercialization. This investment is at risk. Toronto was the fastest growing tech hub in North America with ICT and advanced technologies outpacing job and economic growth rates by almost twice the national average. As we look beyond COVID19, our technology sector, adequately supported through this crisis, can be the catalyst to jump start Canada’s future economy. With a troubled oil and gas sector, Canada will need agile, fast movers doing the heavy lifting to fund our social, health and education programs and rebuild the nation’s balance sheet.

And as we get back to shipping products and services, a more sophisticated approach to sales, branding, advocacy and public relations, layered with Canada’s science, technology, engineering and maths genius can place Canada out in front in multiple lanes. The digitization revolution just got a bump up and opportunities and demand will remain for trillion dollar market frontiers. Data, Internet of things and machine learning are golden.  Demand for artificial intelligence, environmental, medical and space solutions will continue to accelerate. Winning the future will take more collaboration, agility, commercial savvy and embracing diverse talent sets and creativity. We’ve got this Canada!
