Topic 1: Jargon of the Week . . . DBIO

Take it apart: Digital Business Infrastructure Operations. Is this usable terminology? Just another four letter acronym?

"Digital Business Infrastructure Operations (DBIO) is an end-to-end approach to delivering managed services. It spans the entire digital value chain – from the core to the edge – and is supported by robust network and security infrastructure."

One aspect - building things backwards - just amounts to selling solutions instead of selling “stuff” and integrating it. That sounds like the advice for last 50 years.

We'd love to hear comments on this one.

We love looking at the future of our industry. It's kinda what this podcast is about. We dig into this a bit and then introduce Topic Three - then discuss both of them together.

Jay McBain's 2021 Channel Predictions:

Topic 3: Techaisle see the Future at Little Differently

One important topic here is "Digital Equality" vs. "Digital Divide."

Again, great topics here: Give us your feedback!
