PODCAST: Wishing for Greater Efficiencies in 2016? A CTO’s Guide to Managed Services
Organizations have many items on their wish list for 2016, but what tops the CTO’s wish list is often creating greater IT efficiencies. Managed Services delivers on this wish for organizations interested in moving to a consumption-based IT strategy. In this latest podcast, we spoke with Jim Smid, CTO of Iron Bow to get a real-life perspective on how to approach the decisions, implementation and transition for a new way of managing IT strategy. “It’s a new paradigm,” Smid said, referring to the way agencies leverage technology to achieve business outcomes. For CTOs looking to implement a managed services offering, Smid provides guidelines and shares how the Department of Veteran Affairs has implemented turnkey solutions to deliver telehealth solutions to hundreds of thousands of veterans around the country.
