What's Going On Here? :-D

Greetings! In case you weren't yet sure, I'm Michael Dortch, also known in cyberspace as @DortchOnIT. I've been in the information technology (IT) business since the 1970s. And if you have questions about how best to drive business benefits with IT, or how to tell better stories about your offerings, I have answers (and opinions, skills, and experience) that can help you to grow and improve your business!

What I Do:
I've spent most of the past four decades (whew!) translating things "technology people" (and companies) say and do...things like:

Software as a Service (SaaS) / Cloud Computing
Collaboration Technologies
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
Marketing Automation

Social Media

into things businesspeople can understand, act upon and use to their advantage...things like:

For Companies that Sell IT: 
More Leads, Conversions and Customers
Better Customer / Partner / Prospect Care

For Companies that Use IT:
Faster, Broader Solution Adoption
More & Better IT-Business Cooperation
Happier, More Productive Users

For ANY Company:
Better, Faster Communications
More & Better Thought Leadership
Greater Competitive Agility & Responsiveness
Lower Costs
Higher & Faster Revenues & Profits!

How I Do It:
  • With content — webinars, blogs, presentations, white papers, marketing collateral, custom research, and more.
  • With consultation and coaching, in-person and/or remotely.
  • Professionally, and with passion, wit and humor. 
  • Collaboratively, independently, economically, effectively, on budget and on deadline!
  • With a complimentary, no-obligation initial consultation, via telephone, e-mail, electronically, or in person (if you're local or paying travel expenses)!

Some of What I've Done (and Am Doing):

My weekly series, "This Week In The Internet of Things" ("TWITIoT") and other IT-related blog posts, at IT Chronicles:

"DortchOnIT's Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Weekly," my weekly "newspaper" of curated articles about the Internet of Things (IoT), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and related topics:

Ivanti Blog, Podcast, and Video Content:
