Establishing your Technology Vision

Identifying ways technology can propel an enterprise requires an astute ability to listen carefully to the needs of the business and, of course, to understand the business. This may sound obvious, but neither skill comes naturally to many business owners and operators.

Work as we know it is transforming.

Today, all businesses are technology enabled regardless of size, industry, or location. But merely using technology no longer guarantees that you remain competitive. As digital natives flood the global workforce, businesses are met with a decision: resist new norms or provide the latest technology to their employees.

We are in the midst of a technological shift not seen since the launch of Microsoft Office and the invention of the Internet. The world of IT is at a tipping point, and at the center are IT professionals experiencing once-in-a-career shifts in their roles and responsibilities. For years, IT has been mischaracterized as solely an internal support team; if something breaks, IT is there with the fix.

In 2016, IT professionals are beginning to offload their routine work to cloud software and service providers, giving them more time to focus on strategic work.

The skills required to maintain or change a company’s technology vision in this modern, cloud-first workplace are far different than they once were. Cloud IT is coming of age and it’s going to affect every organization and IT professional in the world, much faster than you think.  Let Grand Rapids Technology Source help guide you through the process and available options.
