In Episode 35 of InterVision’s Status Go podcast, I interview David Schacht, who serves as the Simon Property Group SVP and CIO. In today’s hyper-digital era, when gaining a competitive advantage is more dependent on technological advances than ever before, it is crucial that the IT department have a strong connection with the business as a whole. David points out that between the analytical disciplines of technologists and the expertise of their business counterparts, the result is always better together. He discusses not only how he established such a strong IT culture around core business needs and values, but how he navigates the balance of upholding these principles while also staying in front of new technologies.
