The IBM QuickBYTES interview: LORD Corporation

Ahead of next week’s Watson IoT Continuous Engineering Summit 2017 (November 15-17 in New Orleans), we’re asking attendees for some thoughts about the event and the latest technology trends.

What are you most looking forward to at the CE Summit this year?

This will be my first time at an IBM Continuous Engineering Summit. I am looking forward to meeting other users of the tool suite and gaining valuable insight on better tool use and how others are using the Jazz Suite of tools.

What do you see as the biggest trends in IoT technology today?

Driving more with less. The business environment is always pushing the envelope to be faster, better and efficient. IoT is looking to solve this problem with better tools integration and provide team collaboration.   

What advice would you give to future engineers?

Communication is the key to success. The better you communicate with your peers and management, the better position you will be in to succeed. Soft skills are underrated in school and yet so critical in the work force.

How does CE help drive a connected, software-driven world?

It is all about reflection and response. Addressing issues discovered during the engineering process and having a plan to recover from unforeseen issues that arise is the key to success. CE can provide the means to better react to the changes that will occur.

What do you see as the biggest risks or challenges for CE or IoT?

Driving better decisions requires better information. We live in an environment of information overload, the ability to get to the pertinent information to make informed decisions has always been a challenge, only made worse by the information overload that we live in.

What is the goal of your session at the CE Summit?

To provide a glimpse into our real world experience with the implementation of usage of DOORS Next Generation in our highly process-driven, safety-oriented industry.

What app can you not live without?

Any web browser.

What is your favorite thing about New Orleans?

I don’t know; it’s my first time here.

The last time I checked my phone was:

Ten minutes ago.
