Digital Expert Interviews: Ian Bresnahan, CEO Itential on Digital Transformation in Networking

In this episode, I have the privilege of interviewing the co-founder and CEO of Itential, Ian Bresnahan, on the role of networks in helping and/or hindering digital transformation initiatives.  Digital transformation is often closely related to making a company more agile – able to act and react to changing customer and market requirements quickly.  Networks are what connects all the different systems and processes together, so having the ability to quickly change systems and processes utilizing networks takes special planning, solutions and strategies.   I found this topic fascinating and am sure you will to.
