Todayâ€™s premier IT leaders are constantly challenged with identifying and eliminating siloed solutions. Meanwhile, they are looking to find and/or develop programs, applications and other technologies that are robust and easy to integrate, and that handle everything from systematizing operations and streamlining functionality to accomplishing multiple tasks at once.
