CRI Advantage Premier Exhibitor at NLIT Conference 2020


Award-Winning IT Services Firm Continues Long-Standing Presence at Prestigious Industry Event

Boise – CRI Advantage (CRI) is continuing a long history of supporting the National Laboratories Information Technology (NLIT) Summit as a Premier Exhibitor. CRI has been a fixture at the event for many years as a parallel to the extensive work the firm has performed within various Department of Energy (DOE) laboratory locations.

“The NLIT conference facilitates information sharing across the DOE laboratory for IT and cyber security practices. Through this joint collaboration, each laboratory improves their safety, security and ultimately their mission delivery,” says CRI CEO Monte Brookshier.

The NLIT Summit is sponsored by the NLIT Society, a professional society founded to facilitate the exchange of best practices and ideas between IT professionals within the DOE complex, strengthen the IT infrastructure, and reduce costs within the DOE laboratory system. The Summit facilitates sharing information regarding all aspects of IT operations, technology, policies, and practices in support of research conducted at the Laboratories. It is open to all personnel in the IT field working at Laboratories and Plants affiliated with government funded activities, as well as Federal government employees in the IT field that work at agencies associated with the participating Laboratories.

The Summit consists of presentations, Community of Interest Network (COIN) collaboration sessions, panel discussions, tutorials, and technology demonstrations on a variety of topics of current interest to the IT community within DOE. There is an emphasis on providing opportunities for active participation and networking between attendees. Best practices, strategies, methodologies, implementations, lessons learned, innovative solutions, and emerging topics within the DOE community are shared during the Summit’s many sessions and events.

CRI Advantage helps Laboratory leaders transform their organizations through IT and Cyber Services, and ServiceNow solutions. 

“CRI Advantage delivers transformative IT and Cyber Services in the support of DOE and its diverse mission. We apply industry best practices while attracting and retaining people – our most important asset. We support DOE in the areas of application development, managed services and infrastructure management leveraging our ServiceNow partnership,” notes Brookshier.
