Lextech Global Services’ CEO speaks on changing mobile technology

Published: September 19, 2012.

Lextech Global Services’ Chief Geek and CEO Alex Bratton will present “Mobile Technology is Changing the World. Are You Ready?” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26 in the University Dining Room on the Lewis University Main Campus in Romeoville.

Bratton’s experience founding nine successful tech companies and advising countless startups has uniquely positioned him to understand the implications of mobility with both technology and business in mind. His message is simple: Mobility is here. Are you ready?

Bratton will share mobile app success stories and lessons learned about:

  • How the touchscreen is taking over,
  • How mobility is changing the way businesses and consumers operate, and
  • Statistics you should know about major mobile platforms.

After his presentation, Lewis University will be dedicating a new Computer Science area. Located just off of the New Science Center, the renovated facility features four new state-of-the-art computer labs. The Mathematical Computing Lab will focus on teaching and investigating mathematical concepts using computers. The Networking and Security Lab will host instruction in the design and implementation of computer networks and processes by which computer systems can be made secure against cyber attack. The Software Development Lab will focus on teaching students a variety of programming and software development techniques. Finally, the Ubiquitous Computing Lab will explore issues related to non-traditional computing platforms, including mobile and embedded systems. The new area also houses offices for department faculty and a new reception area.

Lewis University offers a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science as well as minors in Computer Science and in Cyber Security Science. It also co-manages a Master of Science in Information Security, which includes an innovative fast-track program that enables students to earn both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in five years. In addition to receiving personal attention from experienced faculty and learning in an attractive and modern facility, Computer Science students receive plenty of real-world experience, working on service projects for non-profits and taking advantage of numerous internship opportunities. Students acquire both the technical skills and the team-oriented problem-solving strategies necessary for a wildly successful career, through a cutting-edge curriculum and integrated learning opportunities.

Lewis University is a Catholic university offering distinctive undergraduate and graduate programs to more than 6,500 traditional and adult students. Lewis offers multiple campus locations, online degree programs, and a variety of formats that provide accessibility and convenience to a growing student population. Sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, Lewis prepares intellectually engaged, ethically grounded, globally connected, and socially responsible graduates.
