Did you just buy new tech for your company? Congratulations! Now, it’s time to start thinking about an upgrade.
So says David Mitchelhill, a long-time interim Chief Technology Officer.
Mitchelhill, who served in various CIO roles at organizations like Klarna, Freeletics, and the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Justice, is a sharp-tongued critic of everything from Salesforce to Microsoft to company owners who don’t take the time to learn about and understand technology.
By the time a company’s technology solution is a year old “it’s already decrepit,” he says.
The speed of technology development is doubling every year. Companies that don’t have AI-driven decision-making are now too late for three reasons:
1. Difficulty acquiring complex knowledge
2. Scarce talent expertise
3. Time to interweave AI-driven knowledge into the company’s fabric
