Your IT plan is your business plan, expert says

The success of your business may depend not so much on your business plan but your IT plan, says entrepreneur John Farhat.

A serial entrepreneur, Mr. Farhat owns a number of companies, the most prominent of which is the privately held IT consulting firm Farhat Services Company Inc. of Columbus, Ohio.

“It’s basically a strategy company,” Mr. Farhat says of what his firm does. “You can have all the business plans in the world, but if your IT is moving south, and your business plan says you need to move north, you’re in fact moving south.”

Mr. Farhat joins us for this Bizgnus Interview podcast.

But what about the future?  What about the so-called “metaverse” being pushed by the founder of a social media site?

As involved in IT as he is, it’s not for Mr. Farhat, who is unequivocal about his feelings.

“I have stayed as far away from metaverse as humanly possible,” he says. “As it is, we are isolated enough and we don’t need any more technology between us.  What we need to do is shut down the technology every once in a while and go up to somebody and shake hands and say ‘good morning.’”
