CTG’s Director of Technology Innovation & Services, Derek Werthmuller, will participate in a panel discussion titled “Sailing the Perfect Storm of Data Trends” at the New York IT Leadership Academy, the premier leadership event for New York’s senior level technology executives. During his presentation, Derek will discuss the strategies CTG has used to create health data visualizations for the New York State Department of Health (DOH) in CTG's Summer Lab. CTG’s Summer Lab provides undergraduate and graduate level students with experiential learning opportunities that supplement their classroom education with practical, real-world experience.
As the Director of Technology Innovation and Services, Derek manages the Technology Solutions Laboratory and the Technology Services Unit to maintain the Center's technology infrastructure while also researching, prototyping, and implementing innovative and sustainable technology solutions.
In his more than 20 years at CTG, Derek has championed emerging technologies such as XML frameworks and XML databases for web content management, systems management, and more. He has led the Center’s activities into data visualization and also the Internet of Things, an increasingly common phenomenon. Derek was also responsible for directing CTG’s technology transfer program within the University to bring CTG’s innovative products to a greater market. Derek brings strong practical experience in automating system management and system deployment, and evaluating sustainable software solutions.
Academically, Derek spearheads CTG's Student Lab, providing students from UAlbany's College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and other academic programs with practical experiential learning opportunities. In addition to his responsiblities at CTG, Derek is also a member of the city of Albany's Broadband Initative Working Group. This group, established by Mayor of Albany Kathy Sheehan in 2015, works to assess the broadband landscape in Albany, investigate the "digital divide," among city residents, and help map out a solution to ensure the City has a broadband network that provides affordable, high speed internet for all.
