TAMPA BAY, Florida., April 11, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Prior to the pandemic, 92% of business leaders surveyed by McKinsey believed their business model would not remain viable at the pace of digitalization in this era. (1) Experts noted that the road to recovery is paved with data-driven decisions. This can be good news or discouraging news for leaders in any business; small to business.
Enter Therese Spangler, Plazabridge Group CEO and growth strategist, whose AI-powered decision-making tool leverages data and new technologies to drive business value. She explained to Karla Jo Helms, the host of the Disruption/Interruption podcast, discusses how AI helps the executive suite make better decisions faster based on data accumulation rather than risk assessment. “During the pandemic, we have pivoted, changed and resurrected in many ways. However, we are missing the element of future planning for competitive agility by not focusing our efforts on future growth.”
Enter Jai Arun, a technology innovator with over 23 years of experience leading startups to enterprises, who saw the value of blockchain in protecting systems and information through its distributed ledger technology. He explained to the host Karla Jo Helms why the monetization of information has created more distrust and the impact of self-sovereign identity and how we perceive information. “Blockchain allows businesses to bring trust and security to systems. Distributed ledger technology can bring trust and transparency to businesses to solve more problems.”
Enter Hoyin Cheung from Remo, whose company reveals the nuances of creating and engaging a workplace for all team members and builds real relationships in virtual and hybrid environments. He explained to the host Karla Jo Helms how their technology humanizes digital communication and helps leaders leverage the level of engagement of their employees. “The fun thing about working in tech is that often what limits growth are humans.”
