Wherever you go, there you are.

This past week, we saw big tech step up big time in the effort to find a technology-led solution to the Covid-19 crisis. Traditional rivals Google and Apple are getting together to develop a contact tracing app that will use Bluetooth technology to identify potential hotspots of coronavirus transmission and quickly identify and isolate individuals suspected of being infected. The technology has shown to have worked extremely well in countries like Singapore and South Korea and may be our best option today in slowing down the spread of the virus.

Our one-of-a-kind annual report on 12 major global IT consulting services firms is out. The WITCH Report, now in its fifth year, provides the most comprehensive analysis of the financial and market performance of the healthcare sector performance of the firms covered. This 70-page document is a valuable guide to tech firms that want to understand their competitive landscape, and for healthcare enterprises looking to understand the changes in the IT service provider landscape.

In my latest podcast episode of Coronavirus Conversations, I speak with Will O’Connor, CMIO of clinical communications platform provider TigerConnect. Take a listen.

Stay safe.
