ITSM Weekly the Podcast (Week29) - Guest Speaker:Matt Blair & Taj Peeran

For the next gen of IT professionals the business landscape is a theory not a law.  With so much dynamics in the underlying operations of marketing, sales, manufacturing, IT is going to be challenged to bring a new game to the table.  Students need to be Business Students with Technology skills.  Product development and innovation is going to be a the mainstay of the engineering folks.   The role of the IT professional will be to manage the "pure sciences" capability, including intellectual property into a monetized outcome of technology (applied science).  Creating and protecting value models based on business benefits driven by technology will be no easy task.  The CIO of the future will have to have deep and diverse skills, if role exists at all.

Listen in to this weeks podcast as we talk to Matt Blair & Taj Peeran 2 students working to get their Masters in Information Services (MSIS).
