A rant about corporate mission statements

Poster

There are precious few things in my career that I have learned to avoid more than mission statement meetings.  It always shocked me that people actually volunteered for them. It seemed to me that it was the equivalent of prisoners volunteering to do community clean-up patrols to get outside the walls of the prison for […]

DXC Cares: DXC Vietnam visits disadvantaged children on Children’s Day 2017

Continuing our sharing of DXC Cares stories, this one is about helping disadvantaged children in Vietnam. Read this inspirational story from Trinh Dang, one of the volunteers. On International Children’s Day of Vietnam, June 1, 2017, DXC Vietnam employees visited the children currently being raised at Hung Phuoc Pagoda in Ben Tre (about 120 kilometers […]

Technology companies do want you!

For this post, I am sharing my space with Courtney Carr, a member of our new graduate program in Perth, Australia. Working with Courtney this year has given us confidence and courage to trust wholeheartedly in our next generation at DXC Technology.  This is part 2 in a 3-part series. As mentioned in my last […]

Technology and the aging of medical practices

Doctor

I know I’ve dated myself when I mention “Marcus Welby” and get a blank stare back. For those in the millennial demographic reading this article, let’s just say that Welby was the epitome of the family doctor on television in the 1970s. To many of us, when Dr. Welby retired at the end of the series, it […]

Adapting to change: A returning intern post merger

Adapt

As a second year Inside Sales intern, I had the privilege to be a part of CSC last summer and was given the opportunity to return as a part of DXC Technology. I’ve learned a lot throughout my time here and have worked on a vast array of different projects. What really makes the experience […]

DXC and ServiceNow partnership: A win-win-win

Partnership

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” That famous quote from Helen Keller has been running through my mind lately as I’ve reflected on the partnership between DXC Technology and ServiceNow. What started as a regional relationship between Fruition Partners (now a DXC company) and ServiceNow, the leading platform for […]

A passion for obsession

Passion

Everyone admires someone with tremendous passions, but if you have tremendous obsessions for the same things, you’re considered “scary.” It’s like the difference between a renaissance man and a madman. I understand this. I’ve accumulated many passions over the years, ranging from food and wine, fly-tying and snowboard instruction to cross cultural communications. I can […]

External influences on why we underestimate

Jerry Overton, a data scientist here at DXC Technology, reached out to me after my last blog to talk about when we women underestimate ourselves. He felt there were a lot of external factors that could result in our internal underestimation. So I caught up with Jerry, who provided another view of underestimation that can […]

Blockchain’s identity problem

Blockchain

As an old dog in technology marketing and research, I’ve had the opportunity to watch the emergence of many new products and categories and observe the traction (or lack thereof) that the products get in the marketplace. I remember exactly where I was the first time I heard about blockchain. I was speaking with a […]

The marriage vows of technology and banking

Banking

As of 2015, U.S. banks have stored data equivalent to 275 billion MP3s. Drifting through a vast ocean of data are credit card histories, banking transactions and personal customer profiles among other pieces of sensitive information. Banks are under tremendous pressure to collect, store, manage and protect this critical data, and that’s what makes information […]
