If you had a magic wand - what's the #1 daily business challenge you'd eliminate?

Top Answer: Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.

Is it possible to push a message to corporate hardware for remote users that must be acknowledged before they can enter their login credentials?

Top Answer: I’ve not done this but I believe it could be handled by the Interactive Logon Message GPO feature. I believe the message appears when they press Ctl+Alt+Del but they have to press OK before they can login. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/security-policy-settings/interactive-logon-message-text-for-users-attempting-to-log-on

What's your experience with corporate phones? Is this something employees want/need?

Top Answer: We tried BYOD. It was a failure. Mostly due to our corporate culture. A few people did volunteer for BYOD but it replaced less than 4% of the pool of devices. I think it can work but it will depend more on your culture than your technology. PM me if you want to discuss. Bottom line if you provide good benefits to your employees they might be willing to subsidize the cost of you being able to reach them 7x24 at their own expense

What specific impacts has the COVID-19 pandemic had on IT organizations in education?

Top Answer: The pandemic has been an interesting challenge to come up to speed on. I'm the CIO for the Cherry Creek School District and we have about 55K kids. I came out of the private sector and being in the public sector is still very interesting. There's just so much that we have to deal with in K-12 public education and in. The pandemic has been a complete mess. We've been able to stay in school but from the start of the pandemic in March 2020, we had to spin up 55K devices really fast. It was a crazy time to put that out so rapidly and trying to control that has been complete chaos. No one in their right mind would go one-to-one in just a few weeks and do it across an entire system. People don't understand the scale of what we deal with between the 55K kids, about 10K staff, and then 35K parents. I get to 100K IDs pretty fast. That’s on top of thousands of security cameras, telephones, and the internet — our internet pipe is massive.

Does your organization have a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy?

Top Answer: We have it, but there is no reimbursement.  We had extremely low adoption, since CORP traffic would eat up a significant amount of your monthly data plan. I personally did not choose to use my personal phone for work.

Does anyone have experience with deploying vending machines that house IT peripherals, such as keyboards, mice, etc.? Which companies have you used?

Top Answer: We used Modern Leasing of Iowa for our IT vending machine. End users loved that they could use their building access badge to get equipment, and the reporting was okay for the IT and finance team. The company was good to work with - they allowed us a break in payments when our offices closed due to covid.

Do you think that laptops will get dumber in the future? Will everybody be on a tablet in the next 10 years?

Top Answer: I did that in 2015 at a biotech company. I got rid of my laptop and just used my iPad to show that we're all cloud, and everything we do can be done through a mobile device. I know it can be done. It's not super comfortable with some applications, but if you have a keyboard for the iPad, you should be fine. Chromebooks are big at a lot of places, especially schools.
