Good morning!  I've been having quite a few conversations with innovation teams and CIOs around how their innovation priorities are shifting, expanding and accelerating given the current situation. Are people experiencing similar shifts at their organizations or are things slowing down?

Q&A, Pulse Q&A, IT, Spend Intentions Good morning to you too.  Nothing is slowing down at State Farm...in fact, it seems things are speeding up!  Our product teams are working very well from home and are on pace or ahead of their planned delivery dates.  We are launching an entirely new product in the senior living space in the next two weeks, and we are making great progress in a number of other areas.  So, things are definitely moving forward!

Definitely accelerating but also aligning with the new way of working. Collaborating safely in person and virtually is a hot item but it also drives more emphasis on traditional projects around tranforming the core (i.e. infrastructure, networking, data management) as the new operating model requires advanced capabilities in those spaces.

We are currently investigating if it would be fruitful to stay remote for longer. We've seen an interesting spike in productivity and huge leaps in planning efficiency for meetings and retrospectives. As we're working in healthcare we are very curious to see what will happen for our clients and their wishes after the semi-lockdown measures will be lifted.
