Co-developing your IT with a trusted vendor paves the road to success
Rooted in the mindset of an engineer, a scientist, a business development expert and an entrepreneur, Dr. Orna Berry analyzes business challenges from multiple angles to ensure that the IT and services solution achieves all objectives. Due north for all activities is customer experience. At the highest level, IT must connect data for analysis while ensuring its protection from loss and compromise, in any way, when it is stationary and when it is in motion.
This deceivingly simple premise requires extensive planning around what services need to be provided or automated, the right data to be collected, the right technologies, such as hybrid enterprise cloud and converged infrastructure to achieve scale and speed to market, and procurement within the confinements of the customer's budget and, of course, industry and government regulations. The latter is of particular relevance in the fintech vertical, as Dr. Berry points out. Add the advent of the Internet of Things and with it the distribution of wisdom to even more devices, the challenges to be solved multiply. The collaboration and trust between a customer and a vendor in co-developing their IT environment infrastructure is indispensable.
This episode also examines Dr. Berry's perspective on the impact of technology on future generations and, as Israel's first woman director of industrial research, the role of women in technology.
