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

3 digital transformations that will affect the chip workplace in 2020

In 2019, we witnessed massive breakthroughs and seismic industry shifts that shaped how we work, live, travel, and share ideas. Major telecom carriers are offering 5G-capable devices for faster connections. Students and professionals can ride in fully autonomous shuttles or employees buses. And an anonymous but searchable tool for drug development and health studies can help aggregate trillions of data points for research and drug manufacturers.

As we wrap up another year, it’s time to look at what happened in the past quarter with a roundup of news, technological breakthroughs, and industry trends. This was a busy quarter, with legislation updates for scientific funding, an energy-efficient device that bends light, a new method for transforming silicon, and more. Let’s take a look at what’s happened in the last few months:

How to improve R&D in the semiconductor industry

Most semiconductor engineers have a similar mission: planning, executing, delivering, and optimizing cutting-edge products. That takes meticulous and thoughtful foresight, planning, processes, and resources — all of which stem from sustained research and development (R&D) efforts.

While R&D is foundational in every chip company, recent profound shifts in the industry call for a different approach. KPMG’s 14th semiconductor outlook report found that due to challenging market conditions, R&D and innovation ranks first in strategic priority. Semiconductor companies are innovating and growing revenue in new ways without massive investments in scaling. Many are also in partnerships with suppliers, foundries, system, and fabless companies, which demands a focus on value chain coordination. Moreover, the need to push new products within the critical ramp period increases R&D costs.
