What we're about

Hello and welcome to the AITP Lehigh Valley Chapter Meetup group!

Who are we?
We are the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP), a non-profit organization of CompTIA. Our mission is to provide our IT-business members with opportunities and resources necessary to develop and advance their IT careers. Our core values encompass integrity, respect, innovation and service. Most of our meetings are opened to non-members/professionals and students. Additional information about AITP can be found at our national website ( https://www.aitp.org/ ).

Are you looking for insight on how technology can be used to your competitive advantage? Trying to stay abreast of the latest trends and best practices in your industry? Want to know what works, when, and most importantly why? So do we.

What and when?
We strive to acquire great speakers on current topics that would benefit our members and guests. We meet once per month with our season starting in September and ending on the following June. Due to the Holidays, we do not meet in December. The attire for our meetings is business-casual.

Our home base is located at the Starlight Diner, near the intersection of Route 78 and 100 South. To access our private meeting room, you can either enter the front door or the left side entrance of the restaurant. Depending on the venue, we also meet at Kutztown University, Lehigh Carbon Community College, Lehigh University, DeSales University or at one of our tour sites. Please visit our local chapter website at http://www.lv-aitp.org/ for additional information about our events.

Deploying Successful Advanced Analytics Applications

Starlite Diner


This presentation is open for members and non-members, faculty, staff, and students.

Deploying successful advanced analytics applications requires a combination of people, process, and tools all working together. This presentation will cover both technical and non-technical tips for implementing and deploying advanced analytics projects. Practical examples of people, data, modeling, and deployment issues that determine the success or failure of a solution will be discussed using real-world examples across several techniques and application areas.

Michael Magent is an Advanced Analytics Manager on the Data and Analytics Team at Air Products. In this role, Mike works with business partners to apply and adopt advanced analytics solutions at Air Products.

He also served as the Air Products Operations Research Roundtable chairman.

In addition to his work at Air Products, Mike has been an Adjunct Professor in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department at Lehigh University. He developed and taught Applied Data Mining and taught Deterministic Models in Operations Research, Advanced Operations Research, and Supply Chain Management.
