August 20, 2014
ADDISON, Ill.—ITsavvy, one of the fastest growing technology companies in the U.S., just announced that it will be hosting a major technology symposium– bringing together top industry experts and featuring one of the brightest technology minds in corporate America.
This year’s ITsavvy Symposium is a revamped version of the company’s annual ITsavvy Showcase. The event has been expanded to a full day in order to accommodate dozens of Tech Talks (interactive breakout sessions led by experts), more demos, more vendors, more networking, more food and cocktails, more brainstorming and more time to recharge in the invigorating Medinah Country Club setting.
The keynote speaker will be SVP and Chief Information, Innovation and Improvement Officer for Walgreen Co. Tim Theriault. Entitled “Leading Walgreens to New Frontiers,” Theriault’s keynote presentation will address how Walgreens is emerging as the first global pharmacy-led health and well-being champion. Breaking into this new frontier calls for a world-class IT organization with trailblazing technology solutions. Symposium attendees will learn how Walgreens is designing the path forward and how the company’s IT team is supporting business strategy and the use of current trends.
Theriault oversees the Walgreens health IT infrastructure, which encompasses all healthcare technologies that drive the company and facilitate partner relationships. Since joining Walgreens, Theriault has restructured the IT organization to support new company strategies and enable innovation. He currently heads initiatives to use technology to better understand the customer; enhance the online business; and integrate new healthcare products that support core retail activities.
