  • Bimodal IT innovates without risk

    One of the simplest ways to describe the responsibilities of an IT professional is to say they ensure the disparate parts and pieces of the infrastructure work well together. On any given day, you'll find administrators and engineers matching application needs to physical resources, sorting out compatibility requirements or simply making sure users have access to the right systems and not to the wrong ones.

    When new technologies or strategies emerge, IT professionals naturally want to know how the new thing can best integrate with what they already have rather than throwing the baby out with the bathwater. A rip-and-replace approach is not only disruptive, but it can also be wasteful and time-consuming.
