The Nashville Technology Council has once again partnered with their friends at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center to bring back last year's popular speaker series, Tech Talks.

Tech Talk #2: Platform Choices
Presented by Todd Forgie
​VP, Information Technology & Managed Services, MEDHOST

So you heard how to create the business culture that will attract (and keep!) top talent, which will directly result in better customer experience during Tech Talk #1. Our second Tech Talk will focus on the Platform Choices that you will face as you build your enterprise.

Mr. Forgie will discuss MEDHOST’s strategic approach to platform selection with emphasis on three high level topics:
  • Exercising the most effective tactical approach to platform selection
  • Utilizing a solid strategy as you implement your approach
  • Organizing repeatable, effective processes and methodologies as you work towards best practices for these decisions
Whether building, buying, or partnering to develop capabilities—taking a siloed or tactical approach to selecting platforms could be likened to beginning a road trip with no map or planned destination. Platform selection is core to effective strategy execution. The right choices could help provide a durable competitive advantage, and a foundation for disruptive innovation. The wrong choices can lead to subpar system capabilities, excessive “shelfware”, vendor lock and poor financial performance.
