WWT CEO: 5 Big IT Trends And Leadership Advice For 2023
World Wide Technology CEO Jim Kavanaugh explains to CRN his leadership advice and the big IT trends solution providers should focus on for 2023.
Integrating Advisory, Data And Software Development Teams Is Key
Customers want general resources at the lowest cost possible to support them, but they also want specific subject matter experts when there’s specific initiatives around cybersecurity or big data or digital transformation projects or anything involving software and design.
When I see those things coming together, it’s about the convergence of the infrastructure folks to connect with the consultants and advisers that are working with the customers on the outcomes. Then bringing in the software developers to help bridge any gap.
So there’s a multitude of advisory capabilities, design capabilities, and then the actual people writing the code and building the infrastructure. Those are things happening more frequently, the need to have that interoperability.
For example, almost every app that we build has data and focuses on the importance of data.
So our big data team is integrated with our advisers and our software developers. Because in every case when we’re building those apps, there is a component of analytics that needs to be part of that and needs to be an iterative part.
