ABOUT THE GUESTS
Spending money is easy when investment opportunities are everywhere, but it’s harder to predict if something is worth the cost. In this episode, IT leaders from the public and private sectors tell us about the times their investments paid off—from new technology to the employee experience. You’ll hear advice from Tim Chester, VP of IT and CIO at the University of Georgia, and Carrie Rasmussen, CIO at Ceridian, on how to keep pace with the increasing demand for digital transformation, and much more.
“Frankly, it’s time to invest… AI machine learning and science hires are key, and we’re investing in our high-performance computing to support faculty in those important fields.” – Tim Chester, VP of IT, CIO, at the University of Georgia
“We do have to put certain initiatives on the back burner, but more importantly, we are being asked how do we take inefficiencies and repurpose them so that it’s not a budget cut, but a reallocation of funds through proper harvesting.” – Carrie Rasmussen, CIO at Ceridian
