Washington Technology Podcast: How COVID drives cultural change

The COVID-19 crisis has forced agencies and companies to field a dispersed workforce that relies on technology to stay productive and connected. In this episode of Project 38, Gary Hix of Hitachi Vantara Federal discusses how much those change could be permanent.

As the company’s chief technology officer, Hix keeps a close eye on the IT challenges government agencies face now and the emerging challenges they’ll face in the future. Hix also wears the hat of a solution architect to help customer visions become a reality.

In his view remote work does not mean easier work and particularly when it comes to company culture, as he shares with Washington Technology Senior Staff Writer Ross Wilkers. Different skills and cadences are needed when employees are dispersed — one of many lessons agencies and contractors need to learn about today’s environment to be successful in tomorrow’s.
