The 2015 CT Mobile Summit will feature enterprise mobility solutions from both emerging and established Connecticut companies. The Summit will take place May 6, 2015 at the University of Connecticut branch in Stamford from 1:30 to 7:00 PM. (Early bird registration is just $49 at www.2015CTmobilesummit.com.) The 2015 CT Mobile Summit keynote speaker is V. James Onalfo, who recently retired as CIO of the New York Police Department (NYPD).

In his 11 years with NYPD, Jim transformed the department with mobility solutions, applying the skills he acquired as CIO of Kraft Foods International and Stanley Works. In the wake of 9/11, keeping 34,500 officers, staff, detectives and special units like counter-terrorism on duty 24/7 and ahead of the bad guys required massive changes for the New York City Police Department (NYPD). In 2003, Jim developed a Strategic Systems Plan to move the NYPD into the 21st century. During his 11 years as CIO, the NYPD completely overhauled its IT environment, investing over $1 billion. Jim contributed to the implementation of multiple high tech centers including the Facial ID center, the PETS system which manages all evidence inventories, the LMSI Center, which monitors terrorist attacks in NYC, the Detective Case Management system where 1 million cases are managed in a modern online computer system and the Real Time Crime Center, a $12 MM real time “mission control” command center for NYPD. Along the way, he implemented more mobility solutions than most of us will encounter in our lifetime:

  • Motorized command centers
  • Facial recognition technology on mobile devices
  • License plate recognition
  • CCTV surveillance feeds
  • Integrated turnkey mobility
  • Cyber protection and monitoring
  • In-vehicle wireless hotspots
  • Cloud-smart solutions

Prior to his 11 years at NYPD, Jim was CIO of Kraft Foods International, where he directed IT in 40 countries. During his time at Kraft he lived and worked in Brazil, Australia and South Korea. After Kraft, he was VP and CIO of Stanley Works. Jim is a graduate of the University of Connecticut and retired from US Army service as a Captain. A Connecticut native, Jim lives with his wife in Ridgefield.
