Emerging Tech is Key to Building a Winning Technology Team

1 min read

We are pleased to see that CIO UK have recognised emerging technology as key to building a winning technology team in today's tricky Infosec climate.


Along with diversifying and developing a culture of quality and upskilling current employees, Charlotte Trueman recommends embracing emerging technology.

She writes: "Your business can't be an early adopter of every emerging technology and in truth, some scepticism and a healthy amount of research before you jump on the latest bandwagon makes good business sense.

"However, that doesn't mean you should sit back and watch every trend pass you by. If something excites you, talk to your team. Is there a business case for investing in the technology? How would it benefit your IT strategy? What value will it bring to the organisation?"

BP's Chief Digital Innovation officer, Morag Watson, has already overseen the adoption of technologies such as Robotics and Augmented Intelligence and is excited about the opportunities Quantum and Cognitive computing could afford the company in the future.

"Normally, we invest to either accelerate a technology, because without our investment it wouldn't get the use case that we could see for it, or because it would give us some business competitive advantage," Morag told CIO UK.

In the article, Charlotte continues: "When Cloud computing first emerged, many organisations were reluctant to adopt the technology because of security concerns. While it's right you should exercise some level of caution about emerging tech, if you shun everything not only will your organisation be outpaced by peers but your IT department will be severely lacking in experience and skills."

If you are thinking about how to transform your business, come along to one of our Mobile & Cloud Security Forums in September and October where we will be exploring how to move to a password-less, and zero-trust environment.
