The Right Mindset Will Get Us Through the Crisis

Ivan Fioravanti, CTO of CoreView: 'In Milan, we are in the epicenter of the Coronavirus outbreak. Given there weren't even any infected people in Italy three weeks ago, we've really been taken by an unforeseeable storm. 
 
IT has historically been characterized as a cost center, inclusive of 'slow' people blocking projects, unable to keep up with the change, reducing productivity, unable to support company needs, etc. But now, in these unusual times, they have to change. They have to become heroes. Remote working is made possible by cloud and SaaS-based tech stacks together with great connectivity. But the real enabler is the mindset -- people must understand that these technical tools are now the real difference between zero productivity and full productivity, zero human relationships and great human relationships. IT departments now have the responsibility to keep businesses running, and they have to take some risks in doing this. They have to balance productivity and security as much as they can.'
