Mortgage Turmoil Offers Innovation Opportunity

The economy of late has been rough for some, but none have had it rougher than those in the mortgage or housing businesses. Or have they? William Adamowski, President of KPO, ISGN, says that when markets are in turmoil, investors are more receptive to innovation in information technology. When things were good, he says, the biggest worry from IT managers was dealing with capacity and if there were enough servers. Now everyone is rethinking business models, opening the opportunity for adding efficiencies and being innovative. Adamowski spoke with eWeek Editor at Large Eric Lundquist recently at the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium.
