Future Proofing the Enterprise — Transforming Business Operations

In this episode of the Futurum Tech Webcast, analysts Fred McClimans and Shelly Kramer explore the topic of future-proofing the enterprise and transforming business operations. No politics, no economics — just a hard look at the importance of putting a plan process that doesn’t just digitize things today and answer the easy questions (e.g. do we use Microsoft Teams or Cisco Webex for our meetings?), but which truly transforms operations in order to make the business as a whole more resilient and more agile moving forward.


Our conversation in the show today includes the importance of assembling an internal SWOT team, an exploration of what that team looks like, and the things teams should consider as they try to plan for the future.


Some of the key factors organizations must consider and which we cover in more detail in this episode include:


  • The importance of moving operations to the cloud
  • The most effective use of collaboration platforms
  • Managing and planning for data center resources
  • Rethinking security operations, evaluating enterprise SOCs
  • Evaluating contracts around your data center, office space, and supply chain, and managed services security contracts
  • How these things are monitored and how information is shared within the enterprise so as to provide real-time insights
  • Evaluating what happens to productivity with a WFH workforce and how to facilitate that
  • Managing the social needs of employees and the rule both collaboration platforms play there
