Technology Guru John Pattison Joins PENTA’s Special Edition #COVID19 Podcast Emerging Stronger

(Westborough) – In response to the COVID-19 crisis management strategy to limit public exposure, non-essential businesses throughout the US were recently faced with the challenge of adopting an extended remote work environment. Deborah Penta, Top Growth TV Host and CEO of PENTA Communications, Inc., anticipated the #COVID19 impact on businesses and took action, gathering leading industry experts to share advice as part of this innovative daily #COVID19 Emerging Stronger™ podcast series to effectively lead through the coronavirus epidemic. By leveraging technology as an essential tool for remote business success, Penta’s insightful interview with technology guru John Pattison, explores Everything You Need to Know About Working Remotely with Technology and the Pitfalls to Avoid.

Pattison’s technology leadership experience spans two decades, and as the COO of one of the world’s leading assessment companies, he remains on the cutting edge of innovative technology. A Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) graduate with High Distinction in Management Information Systems, Pattison has committed to extensive professional training in Microsoft emerging software development technologies. Recognized as one of the first 5,000 in the world to achieve MCAD certification, Pattison was an Early Achiever for MSCD certification, and within three months of product release, he earned new MCTS certifications for .NET. A Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP), Pattison pairs his extensive core expertise in custom software solutions, business process modeling, system architecture and design, web application design and development, database administration, and IT support (similar to that an IT support company London can provide) with his passion for enabling businesses to successfully achieve their strategic objectives. Those in the business of developing custom software will know that there are various standards that their programs must meet in order to be a secure solution for businesses to utilize. With the services of Parasoft, developers can have the software bug tested and checked for various compliance factors too. Software testing can be a very time-consuming process and so having something in place to help with this can be invaluable.

While working remotely can be difficult to manage, Pattison’s suggestions help listeners optimize the perfect solutions and discover the ease of accessibility while steering clear of possible snags. Some may prefer to go for a managed it support package to help them with this though. This episode delves into increased connectivity through suite-based programs, augmenting internal and external communication needs without adding unnecessary complexity, and professional knowledge-sharing to adapt to new strategies with greater ease and next level implementation. Pattison’s thoughtful problem-solving approach offers key real-world steps to improve system solutions, meet compliance requirements, maintain organization and focus, and defensively protect against nefarious factors, security risks, and phishing threats during this time of chaos.

In this podcast, Penta also explores Pattison’s recommendations to fine tune remote working situations, touching beyond the surface of technology challenges to make a difference for companies of all sizes, as they navigate the business effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
