      Understanding How Technology Impacts C-Level Business Roles

      Let’s consider these positions, and why they are only becoming more important for a company to fill – officially, or unofficially.

      How Technology is Represented in the C-Suite

      CIO

      Chief Information Officer
      When a company selects someone to be the CIO, that person is then responsible for everything IT within the company. From maintenance, to policy making, to every other consideration, the CIO will probably have their hands in it; and, as technology has grown in importance and impact in the workplace, so has the importance of having someone serve as a CIO.

      This importance is only exacerbated by the prevalence of cyberattacks and other threats today. Companies have had their eyes opened to the importance of comprehensive defenses, and therefore want to have an informed person somewhere near the top to help prioritize these defenses.

      As an executive, the CIO is more focused inwards, toward the company itself. Their job is to work amongst the departments, vendors, and service providers to make sure that all goes smoothly and that their organization’s needs are met.

      CTO

      Chief Technology Officer
      On the other side of the coin, the CTO focuses outward, focusing on how technology can be used to improve what they offer (rather than how their offering is delivered), boosting the top line rather than the bottom. With remote data storage and cloud computing rising in popularity, CTOs have seen a similar upswing.

      To effectively fulfill their responsibilities, a CTO will need both the background with the technical side of technology solutions as well as the creative spin to take these solutions to new areas in unique applications. As such, a CTO also needs the ability to cultivate relationships with their engineers and developers to better work together to visualize and achieve their goals. On a related note, vendor relationships are also a huge component of the CTO’s wheelhouse, as these relationships are key to ensuring the supply is there to accomplish the goals that the CTO has envisioned.

      CDO

      Chief Data Officer
      Finally, you have the CDO, whose role has developed as data’s importance has increased. The CDO is effectively the gatekeeper over your data, ensuring that it is up-to-date and protected, while still accessible to your employees. This data can be used to add value to their offering, gain insight into their ecosystem, and to better measure quality through more in-depth analytics.

      Admittedly, this c-level position is a controversial one, as many businesses feel that their tasks aren’t the kind that require an additional c-level position to be “created,” so to speak. 

      Nevertheless, more organizations are leveraging a CDO to help them better lock down their use of their data, as well as its security.

      What Does This All Mean?

      In so many words, the fact that these c-level positions are popping up so often is indicative of the clearly apparent shift toward technology and its true importance to modern businesses. This shift is permeating businesses at all levels, from small shops to global enterprises.

      However, it is also important to acknowledge that adopting technology is often simpler for larger businesses, with their larger resources and much larger budgets. Small businesses can have a tougher time adopting these more-and-more-needed solutions, which is where the services of a managed service provider can be beneficial.

      With the budgetable services that an MSP can provide, these solutions become accessible to small businesses – which results in greater potential for these businesses. From security, to productivity, to profitability… there are few ways that an MSP can’t benefit a business.

      Furthermore, we can help to assist your business as a stand-in for a member of the c-suite in the form of a Virtual CIO service. This service gives a business access to the same benefits that the CIO can bring, without needing to hire a specialized resource. 

      To learn how Techworks Consulting can assist your business with its technology needs, reach out to our team by calling 631-285-1527.

      Tip of the Week: Avoid These Types of Android Apps

      RAM-Saving Apps

      If an application is running in the background of your Android device, it is going to help burn through your battery and use up your RAM, impacting the device’s performance. This is even the case when the app is only in standby mode. There are many apps currently on app stores that purport to eliminate these claims by shutting down these background processes. Unfortunately, these apps often have the opposite effect, ultimately making the problems they are meant to solve, worse.

      Cleaning Applications

      Your applications will often cache data into your phone to help their performance, and theoretically, this can eventually impact your device’s performance overall. Similarly to the RAM issue, many phone applications are committed to clearing this cached data to help boost the performance of the device – especially useful if the offending app has since been deleted.

      Admittedly, this makes sense, and actually is true in some cases. However, cleaning apps (which aren’t even necessary to use) drain your battery and can expose you to malicious mobile advertising. Rather than relying on a potentially problematic app, just go into your Settings, navigate into either Storage > Cached data > Clear cached data or Apps > Downloaded > selecting an app > Clear Cache, and you’re all set.

      Battery Savers

      Any mobile user understands the frustration of battery limitations, so the idea that an app can help your battery last longer is a truly appealing one. Unfortunately, these apps can’t deliver on their promises, for a few fatal reasons.

      First, the kind of control that this would require would demand some control over Android, which means these apps would need root privileges. Second, if a power-saver “closes” an app that is draining power, chances are good that the app will just reopen, ultimately using up more of your precious battery. Fortunately, Google is getting better at this as well, with Android’s Adaptive Battery limiting the drain of less-used applications.

      Flashlight Apps

      Your phone already has a flashlight built in. Why download an app that is only going to invade your privacy through flagrantly excessive permission requirements? Skip these.

      Free Antivirus

      Yes, antivirus is important, but it is also important to remember that you get what you pay for. In this case, paying nothing will get you nothing. Android has you covered. Have you noticed a pattern of Android already attending to its users’ needs yet? If you really, really want to be sure, however, spend the few dollars and pick a reputable, paid antivirus option.

      Facebook

      We would be amiss if we didn’t mention the world’s largest social network. After the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke, it became clear that there are clear security issues to be considered. Using the app only makes matters worse: high memory use, background activity, invasive permissions, and voracious data consumption have turned the app from a luxury into a burden.

      If you still want to use Facebook while mobile, it is a much better idea to delete the app and instead access it through your mobile browser. From there, you can create a direct shortcut to it on your home screen. As a result, closing the Facebook web tab prevents it from chewing through your data and battery life.

      If you decide to continue to use the Facebook app, it’s worth going in and reviewing your security settings.

      Yes, there are a lot of applications that can be helpful to your business on the Play Store. Unfortunately, there’s also a lot that could potentially harm it, too. Make sure you are encouraging your employees to be mindful about what they are exposing your business’ network to.

      Blockchain Is Moving Into New Industries

      What Exactly is Blockchain?

      Blockchain is an encrypted and distributed ledger system that creates an individual and uneditable record to provide continuity to any type of transaction. The blockchain is not only stored on every device involved in a transaction, it also provides transparency that isn’t possible with any other type of secure transaction. Let’s take a look at the ways blockchain can improve the systems your business depends on.

      Accountability

      As stated above, the blockchain creates a permanent record for each and every transaction. This means that every transaction--whether it is correcting a mistake made, or it is a stand-alone transaction--is documented and encrypted. As a result, applications on a chain will offer a genuine log of transaction nodes. This tech can be used in the following ways:

      Banking and Financial Services

      Banks and other financial institutions will absolutely benefit from the automated record-keeping nature of the blockchain, ensuring that funds make their way where they are supposed to go.

      Voting

      Voting has come under more scrutiny than ever. Blockchain can present an innovative tool in which to maintain the integrity of any election.

      Real Estate

      It’s amazing that real estate ownership has the amount of confusion that it does, but by putting blockchain in the center of real estate transactions, the real estate buying and selling process can be much more transparent.

      Wills and Inheritances

      Wills and inheritances often come under question. This unfortunate situation can be quickly mitigated by transparent blockchain transaction logs. 

      Supply Chain Management and Logistics

      Managing your business’ supply chain and logistics can be aided by blockchain technology. With each transaction now having its own dedicated tracking information, the log can be used to manage the flow of resources and finished products, alike.

      Secure Shareability

      More digital communications are sent and received daily than ever before. With everyone’s reliance on this technology, finding the most secure and reliable ways to share data is an absolute priority. The blockchain could be used this way, logging all the relevant information you’d need without disclosing the contents of the blockchain nodes. The technology can also be used to ensure that agreements are fulfilled and that proper compensation is fairly provided. These capabilities could soon be found in:

      Healthcare

      Like most innovative and emerging technologies, healthcare is at the forefront of developing working options. Blockchain implementation could lead to a situation where individuals could manage his/her own health care records. 

      Stock Trading

      Blockchain could be used to log financial information that will assist stock exchanges from potentially building convenience while improving security.

      Education

      With blockchain, verification is a snap. Eliminating many of the paper files needed will make registration, financial aid, and management more efficient. 

      Internet of Things

      By decentralizing IoT devices, security can be improved exponentially. 

      Public Records

      Many states are actively launching initiatives to reduce their reliance on paper documents, which would help to minimize fraud and improve security (while also boosting accountability among officials).
