Fillios, the Founder and CEO of the IT Ally Institute, a nonprofit organization providing small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) access to knowledge, research, and practical tools to improve their tech bottom line joins Enterprise Radio. His new book is called: Tech Debt 2.0™: How to Future Proof Your Small Business and Improve Your Tech Bottom Line.

This episode of Enterprise Radio is working in conjunction with the Author Channel.

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Michael C. Fillios discuss the following:

  1. The concept of technical debt has been around for several decades as it relates to managing software defects.  How is Tech Debt 2.0 different and why was it important to expand the definition?
  2. As we know from financial debt, it is not all bad if deliberate for example in establishing credit worthiness.  Similarly, not all technical debt is bad. In your book you define 3 types of Tech Debt 2.0, can you explain them and how they differ.
  3. Many internal users and external customers have experienced the impact of Tech Debt 2.0, however, the underlying symptoms are not always acknowledged. What are the symptoms in your organization that would potentially indicate signs of Tech Debt 2.0 and is there a root cause based on your research?
  4. In your book, you introduce the Tech Debt 2.0 diagnostic.  What does this tool measure and how can this information be used to manage Tech Debt 2.0?
  5. How does the impact of Tech Debt 2.0 factor in when it comes to buying or selling a business or during the IT due diligence process?
