The rise of the digital economy has created professional opportunities for those entering technology careers, but is has also changed the core responsibilities of technologists. Our dependence on software to fuel the digital economy and as a result business objectives means it is no longer enough for CTOs and CISOS to be focused on technology and security; they must also speak the language of business and take a higher level view of how technology impacts the business.

During this Podcast, EVP of Product Management, Greg Nicastro discusses how the role of the technologists has changed, and what this means for the future of this profession.
