Insight, a global technology provider and highly valued NetApp partner, helps businesses manage today and transform tomorrow. Last year, an Insight-commissioned IDG survey revealed what progress has been made and which hurdles are proving most difficult for leaders on the IT transformation journey. In this article, Juan Orlandini comments on those findings and how Insight has transformed to better help customers thrive.
Juan Orlandini is not afraid to call your baby ugly.
The chief architect for Insight’s Cloud and Data Center Transformation Division admits that he relishes being known for frank conversation. “My role is to help our clients determine how IT can best support their business. We map out strategies that look at both the benefits and the risks. To successfully realize your vision, you first need to acknowledge the things you have to overcome.”
But clients who have the opportunity to work with Orlandini and Insight’s Cloud & Data Center Transformation team claim that a keen sense of caution is equally matched by his enthusiasm for innovation. “I’ve had the great fortune of riding almost every new technology wave. The opportunity for invention has always been exciting, but what we are able to achieve now is practically unbelievable.”
As Chief Architect for Insight’s Cloud & Data Center division, Juan assesses new and emerging technologies, and recommends strategies, technologies and practices that can help clients advance their business.
