DURHAM, N.C. – The Business Technology Club at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business will host the fifth annual e•Vision Duke Business Technology Forum on March 29, 2003, at The Fuqua School of Business. The conference is being sponsored by Microsoft and the Duke University Teradata Center for Customer Relationship Management.

The event is designed to link professionals and students to discuss the integration of technology into everyday business practices. “When people walk away from the conference,” says Terry Chevalier, e•Vision co-chair, “we want them to have an understanding of how different technologies impact their business, whether or not they consider themselves to be ‘techies.’ ”

The forum will feature keynote presentations from Kimberly Jenkins, Duke University Board of Trustees Member and former president of the Internet Policy Institute, and Matthew Szulik, chief executive officer and president of Raleigh, NC, based Red Hat, the nation’s largest source of open source technology. e•Vision will include panel discussions on web services, CRM and the financial sector, bioinformatics and the future of digital entertainment.

Additional highlights include a career networking fair and a technology showcase in which companies will display cutting-edge products.

As one of the most prominent business technology symposiums in the country, this year’s attendance is expected to exceed 300 people including more than 40 executives from national and international companies.

Registration information is available by e-mailing conference co-chairs Terry Chevalier at terrence.chevalier@duke.edu or Emilio del Rio at emilio.delrio@duke.edu or by visiting the conference website at www.dukevision.org.
