KIT Attends Computer Science Day Event at the University of Pittsburgh
KIT Solutions was proud to send two representatives of our
organization to the 13th Annual Computer Science Day event at the
University of Pittsburgh. The event was
held on March 22, 2013 on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh from noon
until 6:30pm that evening. KIT
participated as a Silver Sponsor for the CS Day Marketplace event, a two hour
window carved out of the packed day, set aside for students to visit booths of
Pittsburgh area companies looking to hire employees or interns in computer
science related fields. Joining KIT as
sponsors of the event were companies such as: Google, BNY Mellon, Northrop
Grumman, PPG, IBM, UPMC, FedEx and PNC.
The marketplace was full of eager college students from Pitt looking for
future employers or organizations where they could learn more about their field
and gain valuable work experience as an intern.
In addition to the Marketplace event, CS Day also included a
debate, a student showcase including research talks, honor roll recognition,
student awards, business model awards, and digital media creations, and
finally, a Networking Social with industry representatives, alumni, faculty,
graduate students and staff.
As a result of attending CS Day 2013, KIT received many
interested applicants applying for both employment and summer internships. We are very excited to create job/internship opportunities
for young college graduates in this particular field of study and are thrilled
that Pitt has taken the initiative to be the enabler, hosting an event where
students have direct access to employers in their field of interest. This type of program is a great idea to aid
students in finding work after they finish school and helps them to start their
careers off right.
KIT looks forward to CS Day 2014 next year and hopefully
plans to participate again. Are you an
interested applicant? Check out all our job openings on our website: http://www.kitsolutions.net/Module/Careers/CareersList

In this new Whitepaper, Dr. Zhang explores the problem of "too little, too late" in regards to decision makers who want to use data-driven decision making processes and need actionable intelligence based on timely and reliable information to do so.
Dr. Zhang reveals how the coming of the "Big Data" era may provide a new approach to these issues, and change the way problems are solved and business is done.

KIT Reveals a New Series of Lessons Learned Whitepapers
KIT is proud to reveal a new series of Whitepapers we recently developed, outlining the "Lessons Learned" through our work on the Data Information Technology Infrastructure Contract (DITIC). These Whitepapers discuss topics ranging from communication and project management, to quality improvement, to quality of data, and more. All of the lessons contained in these papers are rooted from situations that occurred throughout the 5 year duration we held the DITIC contract through SAMHSA (click here
for a full project description of the DITIC).
The attached Lessons Learned will take you through 5 specific instances, highlighting for each one: (1) the situation, (2) the challenge, (3) the solution, and finally (4) the lesson learned. These lessons are of great value to us and continue to shape how we do business as an organization every day.
