Developing a Business First IT CultureIn 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.

Building Strategic PartnershipsIn Episode 34 of InterVision’s Status Go podcast, I sit down with Anita Nielsen, a Top Sales Performance Consultant, to discuss partnerships. In the tech-space, “partner” has been a word so over-used that it has been almost rendered meaningless. However, “partner” becomes incredibly valuable when you are talking about the sales professionals and relationships that are crucial to a project or even your overall success.  How do you quiet the noise in order to focus on and build more of those connections? We unpack what it means to be a partner, how to identify potential partners and most importantly, how to drive value together.

Advancing IT ResilienceIn Episode 33 of InterVision’s Status Go podcast, Chris Campbell, Solutions Engineering Manager, and I discuss the why and how of re-framing and advancing IT resiliency. Between remote working, a globally distributed workforce, and 24/7 e-commerce, the tolerance for downtime continues to decrease. While the majority of incidents are still attributed to natural disasters, around a quarter of them apply to security; this forces the concept of resiliency to expand and evolve beyond redundant power systems to include a heavy focus on security.
