Today’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. In other words, they’re looking for the “digital” Swiss Army knife.
