Artificial Intelligence Where You Need It
Gigaom
January 23, 2020
Artificial intelligence (AI) is permeating every aspect of our personal and professional lives, but many companies have yet to grasp the power and revolutionary capabilities it brings. While public perceptions of AI can be skewed by science fiction’s (almost entirely theoretical) depiction of hyper-intelligent humanoid robots, the enterprise view can also be out of step with reality. Many still view AI as completely focused on high-performance or cloud-based computing models. In actuality, advances in hardware, software, and algorithm optimization mean that AI opportunities are now incredibly broad, and often far more down to earth.

As One Dream Ends, Opportunity Knocks
LinkedIn
July 23, 2021
One thing I discovered early on in my career was to never stop #learning. The constant exploration of ideas, concepts, and what's next has driven me through the years and led to many a great experience. This includes my current journey at Harvard where I have been working toward my master’s degree. Many people don't understand that the idea of being a lifelong learner isn't just about the concepts you are taught, but the people you meet along the way and the lessons you learn from them.

Adopting a Channel Mindset: Part 2 - Ingram Micro Cloud
Ingram Micro Cloud
March 17, 2021
In my first blog in this series, I discussed the importance of asking if your company and products are a good fit for channel distribution—and how you can develop a company mindset for the channel. Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to develop a comprehensive strategy around how your product will be marketed and sold via channel partners.

Adopting a Channel Mindset
Ingram Micro Cloud
March 16, 2021
Picture this scenario: You and your co-worker sit down to discuss the workday over a beer and that’s when your idea hits. You quickly grab a couple of cocktail napkins and sketch out what you believe would be the next best as-a-service product on the market. You then build the business plan, get the funding, develop the product and hire staff.
