IT Turns Its Focus to Optimization
There was a time when business leaders and IT departments weren’t always aligned. Decisions would be made by leadership and handed down to technology heads to execute. Slowly but surely, IT has gained more of a footprint in executive leadership, with CIOs and CISOs getting involved in businesses decisions and strategies.
That trend became more important than ever amid this year’s major disruptions. Huge shifts in the economy and workforce have pushed leaders to think more creatively about ways to deliver value to their organizations, and IT has an opportunity to play a large role.
Things like optimizing workflows and productivity, as well as automating tasks, can have a major impact on a business’s bottom line. Tech Talk attendees will hear about how leaders should approach these challenges and harness IT for what it can be: a valuable strategic resource.
How to Make Multicloud Efficient and Effective
When businesses began widespread remote work, they necessarily put more attention on their use of the cloud. Employees suddenly needed to access their files and applications from anywhere, and businesses needed to ensure they could effectively collaborate. This included expanding existing cloud capacity and pivoting to new opportunities.
Putting together these tools within budget constraints can often lead organizations to multicloud environments. To save money, businesses will use different vendors and providers for different needs, piecing together an infrastructure that relies on many partners to operate.
While that can save money, it can also lead to more complex IT environments. Tech Talk attendees will learn about how to balance these realities while maintaining a stable, secure network — all while staying under budget in a changing business climate.
Handling the IT Infrastructure Costs of Disruptions
Maintaining business costs while enabling productivity during disruptive times calls for great balance: balance between user experience and security, between collaboration and complexity, and possibly most important, between necessary solutions and budget constraints.
Tech Talk attendees will glean practical insights and recommendations to help rein in costs while supporting distributed workforces. With the right technology and leadership, organizations can ensure that they’ll be prepared not only to get through this time but also to remain resilient for the future.
