OpenText VP, Anthony Gallo, to outline how tech companies can make innovation work for them, no matter what their size, at YTA Keynote Luncheon

Can a company with more than 4,400 employees; offices in countries around the world; and revenues of US$1,033.3 million still be a nimble and innovative organization? How does a company this size innovate at a pace that keeps it relevant?

On September 22, Anthony Gallo, VP of OpenText, will outline how OpenText, Canada’s largest software company, has leveraged the velocity of innovation to build its business.

Anthony Gallo, champion of innovation at OpenText, joined the company when his social media company Vizible was recognized as an important innovative addition to the value OpenText could deliver in meeting the emerging needs of its customers. He will share the insights gained by OpenText as they embraced and acquired numerous companies, with each offering a unique success story of innovation that added to real value – for the company and the user.

“Anthony provides a great perspective on the build or buy debate. He has seen the spectrum of innovation as a founder of a tech start-up who then stayed on to champion innovation within the company that acquired it,” said Pat Shaw, YTA Executive Director. He continued, “Anthony’s insight on not just approaching innovation, but mapping its value to the customer will be valuable to tech companies of all sizes.”

The YTA is launching it’s new Learning Labs education series on Sept. 22 as well, leveraging the information shared during Anthony’s luncheon keynote to define practical innovation practices that will help attendees grow their own businesses.
