Jon Seidel will be the closing keynote speaker for the ICCA's annual conference

Oakland, CA. 3/17/2003 - The Independent Computer Consultant's Association (ICCA), a professional association representing computer consultants, today selected Jon Seidel, President of EDP Consulting, Inc. to be the closing keynote speaker at their 2003 Annual Convention, to be held in Las Vegas, NV.

Mr. Seidel's presentation, "It's Not the Technology, Dude", will focus on the "soft" aspects of computer consulting -- such as people, process, and politics -- which are the hard ones to get right. Studies repeatedly show that it's not the technology itself that causes project failures; it's the integration of technology with the rest of the business that causes the real headaches.

The speech will also examine some recent trends in the industry, such as overseas outsourcing, and consider the impact this could have on consultants. Suggestions for addressing these issues will also be advanced.
