In this discussion, imagine that your venture capital (VC) investment organization (DargeanGrix) is changing from the traditional communication methods of telephone or travel to face-to-face interaction with clients. DargeanGrix is now proposing to communicate with clients through video conferencing instead. Your management team has determined that DargeanGrix will be implementing a video conferencing system hosted by SeausNow Video Conferencing, Ltd., a (fictitious) outsourcing vendor. SeausNow Video will provide all video services, video conferencing accounts, and support for the video equipment that will be installed on-site for DargeanGrix.
You have been asked to provide feedback on the challenges the new video services will present in your area. Consider what kind of benefits or problems the new video conferencing system will bring to you in your DargeanGrix role.
Your role in DargeanGrix. You will be an IT operations manager.
State your assigned role as an IT Operations Manager within the first line of your discussion post, then while staying within your assigned role,
Explain in detail how you would participate in this change (e.g., explain your role in the organization, identify your needs, state your concerns and complaints, and describe your specific role in the transformation).
Explain two benefits and one (or more) problems that you would identify from the perspective of your assigned role.
Describe how you would approach one of the problems you’ve identified during this technological change.
