Rollenhagen, a one-time English major at the University of Iowa who discovered a greater affinity for writing code than prose intends to share some advice for anyone who may find themselves responsible for a custom software purchase. Following her pivot from English to Economics and MIS, Rollenhagen interned and was then added as a full-time staffer at Advanced Technologies Group in Des Moines. While she learned much and honed her developer skills, the size and scope of her projects eventually made the work seem almost imaginary, as she never really connected with the end users. A side project for a local law firm gave her the contact and personal feedback that was missing and the idea of Entrepreneurial Technologies was born. Providing custom development for a wide range of clients in the arena of mobile, desktop, web and database applications, they serve those companies that lack the internal staff and expertise, but have a real need for a proprietary solution.

Rollenhagen and her staff work with clients to assess their needs, define the scope of the project and create the application. Working with large and small concerns as well as government organizations has given this young professional a plethora of real world examples that will populate her BIZ presentation.

If a software purchase looms on the horizon for your business and Microsoft ASP.NET, Ruby on Rails, and Mongo DB are not a part of your every day lexicon, you should consider allowing Rollenhagen to show you the path to a wise acquisition.
