PROJECT 38: COVID-19 as a trigger for innovation
As chief technology officer for Science Applications International Corp., Charles Onstott is constantly looking to understand new technologies and how they can be applied to customer problems. In this episode of Project 38, he explains some myriad ways the COVID-19 pandemic has become a trigger for innovation.
The virus is changing how we work, the kind of health care services we need and even the business models government contractors adopt. All of these changes have a technology impact, from how vaccines are developed to the communications infrastructure we need to how data is collected and used.
Onstott shares his views on where these trends might be headed and why companies need to be intentional about how they pursue new technologies and find new ways to apply existing tools.
