Navigating the tumultuous waters of the Internet for your business, organization, or government agency has become very challenging. How do you make sense of the waves of confusing and conflicting information? How can you know what is credible and what is not?
Translating Geek to English has become something of a cliche, thrown around with abandon. And yet, the need is real for trusted advisors who can explain complex technical issues to business-focused leadership, and convey business needs and goals in a way that technical experts can easily understand. This is something we excel in. With misinformation growing at an exponential rate, and massive buzz and hype, there is a great deal of confusion and FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt), especially around these topics, and we can provide the guidance you need to fully understand them and how they can or might affect your strategy. Examples include:
Privacy, Trust, Cybersecurity, Internet of Things (IoT)
Blockchain/Web3 (including Decentralized Data & Apps, Cryptocurrencies, Smart Contracts, Non-Fungible Tokens - NFTs)
Encryption - what kind, when and how to use it, how to evaluate what is best for your purposes, and common pitfalls to avoid
Identity & Access Management (IAM), Single Sign-On (SSO), Identity Federation, Attributes, Digital Wallets, and Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI)
Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and the Metaverse
Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI)
You must make sense of it all if your organization is to thrive in this ever more competitive and complex, knowledge-based, technology-empowered economy. Now more than ever organizations must leverage their existing resources and information assets to meet their goals in the most efficient and cost-effective manner, which also allows businesses to achieve and sustain competitive advantage.
Trust and collaboration are at the root of many of the challenges organizations face today and for the foreseeable future. These are some of the key issues we focus on:
We understand the competitive imperative, and we offer the guidance you need to get where you want to go.
