Welcome to Breaking Silos!
We've launched this podcast to help people within digital roles address the big challenges they face and discuss the industry's key themes by leveraging today's best ideas in business and technology to break down old barriers to collaboration and business success.
Each week you will be joined by one of our three Breaking Silos hosts from Ideagen and together you will learn from experts across diverse industries to save time, cut costs and simplify your workflows. We aim to help you build a more connected, digital-first tomorrow.
In this jam-packed episode of the ‘Breaking Silos’ podcast, Ideagen’s Raj Nagra chats with Brian Jackson - Research Director and CIO at Info-Tech Research Group, to discuss:
- Why there is often a slow end-user adoption of new technology in companies.
- Why it’s so important from a business perspective, to make sure tech adoption isn’t a slow process
- The effect it can have on a business
- The pitfalls to look out for and how a CIO can address the challenges
- How to go about testing new technology
- What emerging innovations, processes and tech are available
- Where tech can be useful to you
- What the ideal adoption process is
As a Research Director in the CIO practice, Brian focuses on emerging trends, executive leadership strategy, and digital strategy. After more than a decade as a technology and science journalist, Brian has his finger on the pulse of leading trends and organisational best practices when it comes to innovation.
Prior to joining Info-Tech Research Group, Brian was the Editorial Director at IT World Canada, responsible for the B2B media publisher’s editorial strategy and execution across all of its publications.
