Providence crafts direct-to-home device provisioning in pandemic response
Providence CIO, B.J. Moore, spoke with CIO.com on Providence's pivot from digital transformation to a device provisioning supply chain to ship laptops to employees' homes in response to the pandemic.
"Providence’s ReadyTech program is one of many examples of organizations accelerating digital innovation to come out stronger on the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic. Support for remote work spurred by the outbreak "might be the biggest win for CIOs since Y2K," Gartner analyst Andy Rowsell-Jones wrote in the researcher's 2021 CIO Agenda Survey. Such yeoman's work has also generated enormous political capital for IT leaders, many of whom have earned support of their CEO, board of directors and senior business peers to accelerate digital business initiatives, Rowsell-Jones adds."
