IT Avengers Part Three – Reassembled– Ep40

This week is the third and last of our panel discussions looking at the major challenges facing business IT.  We pick up again with our panel from last week (You can find last weeks show here IT Avengers Part Two – Assemble Again – Ep39).

They continue their debate with a look at how a business vision, without assessment and understanding of the current environment, may well mean you never achieve your end goal.

We also look at skill sets and how our increasingly digital native workforce, may lead us to problems in understanding how to architect our future solutions.

The changing role of the IT consultant also comes under scrutiny, however as that role evolves, the overall aim of ensuring that those wishing to use technology to improve their businesses make the right choices, does not.

We wrap up looking at the future challenges the panel see and how for one of them, decoupling data from infrastructure is living the tech dream!

As a reminder, the panel is;
