For this weeks episode of Custom Made I'm joined by Russell Villemez, Snr Partner and Head of Technology Strategy here at Dialexa. Russell is a longtime Affiliate with The Feld Group Institute with experience coming from 17 years in operational roles such as serving as the Enterprise Services CTO for the Americas at HP, and as a CIO in the telecom space. From the other side of the table, Russell has also spent 15 years as a partner at various consulting firms. Russell thrives on the scale and complexity of leading major change agendas in large corporate environments. And in his role at Dialexa as Head of Technology Strategy, Russell provides technology transformation leadership to companies experiencing periods of major change. During our discussion, we address the concept of digital transformation and how so many companies are using this concept incorrectly. 'Digital Transformation' should not be seen as a buzzword, a fad, or something new to add to your priorities - but rather it, and your transformation strategy, needs be part of an organization’s always-on day-to-day life. Russell outlines how organizations have not been paying enough attention to their technology ecosystem "hairball" that is continuously growing. And he goes on to share how technology leaders need to have active plans for change, modernization and decommissioning of their technology systems - otherwise, they will face disruption.
