Pickett on being appointed at Intuit
Focused mobility is definitely a given and the pandemic has surely accelerated that, says Pickett. What the world is seeing in the industry is that people have accelerated to get here, however, it is a band-aid, it is a ‘just enough’ approach and now it is about ensuring that things are migrated the right way, she adds. So, as an industry, Intuit is now refining its mobility, she further adds. Security will play a significant role in the strategy of Intuit Technologies going ahead. Pickett claims that its focus with the customers is about understanding the data and application and then deploying an embedded security layer across all of it. So, the way that one does that is simplifying a vendor stack, and within the company’s world, they’ve got numerous key partners already who’ve a really powerful security story.
