The quarterly digital magazine draws up new game plans for IT leaders to support dispersed workforces, improve cloud readiness and refocus on digital transformation
TEMPE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In the fall issue of its quarterly digital magazine, Tech Journal, Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ: NSIT), the global integrator of Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™ for organizations of all sizes, shares a new playbook on lessons learned from 2020 and forward-thinking strategies for IT leaders to support a dispersed workforce, bridge security gaps, accelerate the advantages of the cloud, and reduce costs while investing in IT modernization.
Insight’s Tech Journal helps IT executives, chief experience officers (CXOs), business owners and business unit leaders understand the latest developments in remote working, mobility, collaboration, cloud, data center, cybersecurity, networking, Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and IT supply chain optimization. The latest issue tackles how to adopt a growth mindset, turning this year’s disruptions into opportunities for innovation that establish a new homefield advantage for the digitally savvy.
“As the football season kicked off, we’ve watched surreal scenes of empty stadiums and piped-in fan noise — it’s a stark reminder of how the world has gone through a season of change since this time last year,” said Amy Protexter, editor-in-chief and senior vice president of marketing, Insight. “In this issue, we’ve done our best to share our own growth mindset with a decidedly positive view of the future of IT, providing guidance and new solutions to overcome the critical challenges organizations, from sports leagues to retailers, are facing.”
When Insight asked IT leaders in its 2020 Insight Intelligent Technology Pulse about the business impact of COVID-19 on new business models and the ability to enable remote work, nearly two-thirds (65%) felt extremely or very prepared to respond in the future to a similar disruptive event, knowing what they know now.
The fall 2020 issue of Tech Journal explores the following lessons learned and more:
- Business and IT leaders can put new strategies into play right now to manage a dispersed workforce.
- VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger explains why the pandemic is an important turning point for IT and shares career tips for IT professionals.
- Supply chain automation can be a gamechanger for outdated IT procurement processes weighed down by inefficiencies and inflated costs.
- A virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) program can alleviate overwhelmed security teams from modern challenges with email security, identity and access management, and vulnerability management.
- Responsible AI means designing intelligent systems that solve complex human challenges without sacrificing core values like privacy, security and empathy.
- How manufacturers can emerge stronger by embracing IT to protect employees, meet production needs and better prepare for future catastrophes.
- Building a change-ready culture through proven tools and strategies is the most effective way to manage the people side of change.
“In many ways, COVID-19 accelerated digital innovation, forced business and IT leaders to think differently, and the workforce to adapt to unprecedented change. Teams are working hard to emerge out of this faster on execution timelines to go to market, stronger with modernized infrastructure and true resiliency plans, and better with greater agility to adjust to changing market demands,” said Stan Lequin, senior vice president of Digital Innovation, Insight. “The big lesson here is taking advantage of new opportunities to gain market share and double-down on the investment in digital transformation.”
