The divide between technology companies and everyone else is quickly narrowing, at least according to those who attended this year's Gartner Symposium conference in Orlando, Florida.
As reported by a recent article on Information Week, the conference focused on the idea that all businesses are now essentially technology businesses. That's because technology has advanced to the point where it has seeped into virtually every aspect of our work, especially with regard to communication.
"Nothing gets more attention than the screen, not the boss, and not the spouse," Gartner analyst Peter Sondergaard said. "It's OK, you can admit it."
Ultimately, he argued that organizations must embrace technology in order to remain competitive. It is not only necessary to provide better products and services for their customers, but also to maintain efficient business operations.
This isn't easy. In fact, among VARs and MSPs, it is increasingly necessary to focus on two entirely separate areas at once. On one hand, it is crucial for organizations to produce consistent results, and build information technology that will be reliable. On the other hand, it is also important to look ahead for opportunities to innovate on behalf of clients.
"You have to develop a split personality to be part solid and part fluid," Gartner analyst Daryl Plummer said."The digital world is in constant flow" and "[f]luidity is the fundamental quality of digital business."
VARs and MSPs need talented individuals to help them pursue these two separate, yet concurrent goals. VAR Staffing can help these organizations identify the best talent available in the market today.
