Conservation and protection of the Earth’s biodiversity is a complex business. NatureServe simplifies this complexity by guiding resources toward the places, species, and ecosystems in the greatest need of protection. As the hub of an international, public-private network of 1,000 scientists and information technology experts, NatureServe synthesizes, analyzes and visualizes species and habitat data so that resource managers, policymakers and practitioners can make sound decisions.
NatureServe’s Chief Information Officer, Lori Scott, will present innovative examples of how technology can transform data into measurable conservation outcomes. Lori Scott was recognized by Computerworld as a Technology Leader advancing business through digital transformation with their 2017 Premier 100 Technology Leaders Award.
