People, process, and technology are three integral parts of IT. IT business processes are key to IT activities – from software development to software upgrades and support. While IT business processes encompass an array of aspects and activities, we will start with business analysis. Our guest speaker, Roman Dumiak, will kick off (and close) the summer quarter with an overview of business analysis by focusing on the process of analyzing user needs, soliciting requirements, and developing user stories. He will share perspectives on how customers and consumers influence software that is created via IT Product Owners, Business Analysts, and User Experience Designers.

As the Executive-in-Residence for Industry at the DePaul University Innovation Development Laboratory (iD Lab) and Adjunct Faculty at DePaul University, Roman Dumiak acts as liaison between the DePaul faculty and corporate enterprises currently engaged with DePaul’s iD Lab. He works to bridge the gap between the business and academic communities around innovation. Roman Dumiak has recently retired from his position as Director in the Technology Innovation group for the Allstate Insurance Company. His focus in that position included building out, directing, and facilitating efforts utilizing innovative software and hardware solutions from the ideation phase through implementation as part of Allstate Technology and Strategic Ventures (ATSV).

About the Silicon Valley Speaker Series: Demystifying Information Technology

The term IT has evolved over the years – from programming, data processing, automation to today’s IT.  IT is massive, and IT activities may appear mysterious to many of us. According to Gartner, a global leading research and advisory company, IT is the common term for the entire spectrum of technologies for information processing, including software, hardware, communications technologies and related services.   

Today, we live in a world that is increasingly connected.  Technology is intertwined with our daily lives. Technology makes it easier for us to stay in touch, despite the pandemic. Likewise, our personal finance and banking activities rely on technology – everything from how we bank to how we shop.  The use of technology will persist beyond the pandemic. 

Please join this Silicon Valley Speaker Series to hear the basics of IT and learn what an IT professional does on a day-to-day basis. In this speaker series, we are inviting guest speakers from the banking and/or technology industry to demystify IT – people, process, and technology. This series intends to open the eyes of the curious minds and connect common technology terms to our day-to-day activities. 

Please note the speakers’ perspectives are their own and do not represent the organization they work for. 

We are striving to improve your experience on our site and would appreciate your feedback.
