Managed Services

From scope to delivery

Take a proactive approach to your projects and technology with a Managed Services Provider.

managed services talent 101The traditional break/fix model is broken. Historically, when technology stops functioning as it should, companies outsource vendors to come in and fix it, then the service provider bills for services on-demand. This reactionary way of thinking can lead to delays and setbacks, not to mention the potential vulnerability to security. All said, the break/fix model is risky and expensive. 

Talent 101 does things differently.


We don’t do break and fix. With our managed services model, we offer a proactive approach to your project management and IT decision making. We don’t offer a staffing model or staffing management model. Instead, our managed services operate under a delivery model. That means we’re not contracted based on how many staff members we provide, but the number of projects we complete for our clients. Our extensive experience and innovative thinking help us drive down cost and increase efficiency for our clients. We help mitigate risks associated with contractors and agreements for SOW projects while increasing productivity.

We offer all the strategy and functions for improving your operations and cutting expenses. From scope to delivery, we handle managed services contracts that include:

  • Complete project management
  • Security operations management (cyber security)
  • Manufacturing
  • Decision-making IT

Battle of the Chips: How major players in tech are climbing the ladder of innovation

For the major players in the semiconductor industry, everyday is a race—a battle of the chips .

Last month, Samsung became the world’s largest chipmaker in revenue. Before, Intel held that prestige for several decades. As AI, deep learning, and machine learning take the world by storm, chipmakers capitalize on future technology. Last year, Nvidia reported an 82% increase in shares when they repurposed their chips from gaming rigs to machine learning. As a result, their capabilities in the AI space and innovative technology cultivated their title as the “smartest company in the world” by MIT. Amid the crowd, Intel invested $15 billion in MobileEye, which produces technology for self-driving cars. AMD released a new line of processor chips that delivers greater performance on cloud and machine intelligence workloads.

How to attract more diverse candidates to your STEM workforce

There’s a misconception about the underlying reason behind the lack of representation of women and minorities in STEM-related jobs: women and minorities are not choosing to pursue degrees in these fields and therefore not available for hire. It’s easier for recruiters or hiring managers to shrug off the importance of bringing in diverse candidates when they can blame the universities and the lack of graduates coming down the pipeline. But this way of thinking contributes to passive bias and lack of action to find more diverse candidates for STEM positions.

What lies ahead for the semiconductor industry in 2018?

It’s been 50 years since Intel’s co-founder Gordon Moore gave us his prediction that would become a rule for chipmakers: the number of transistors per square inch on an integrated circuit doubles every two years. In recent years, Moore’s Law seemed to be shaking hands with the Grim Reaper in the world of semiconductors. Many questioned what would happen to the industry when Moore’s Law reached its end.

Yet, not only has the industry been able to sustain through the final years of the law, but also flourish seeing record setting growth for the global market. So what can we expect from the semiconductor industry in 2018? Let’s weigh in on what experts are saying about the semiconductor industry this year.
