Too often, the debate about IT is dominated by a narrow focus on near-term objectives: shrill cries claim that the business will stop (or fail) if a feature isn’t added to the ecommerce site, if the mobility platform isn’t improved, if the network and compute back end aren’t upgraded, if storage and database performance isn’t accelerated. Often, these changes are truly essential, and demand immediate attention. However, midmarket firms can’t assemble a meaningful strategy from point responses to near-term issues. Increasingly, midmarket enterprises are finding that continued operational success requires an “agile-cloud” – an agility-oriented, cloud-based IT strategy that addresses the three core changes faced by midmarket firms: the changing nature of business infrastructure, the accelerating pace of change in business, and the expanding scope of IT.

Information is crucial in decision making. No wonder that protection of information is paid much attention. The most part of information is created and stored digitally (Microsoft Office documents, different databases, and financial data in Intuit Quicken etc). Thus software and hardware means of protecting information are the first to talk about.
The war for talent is a term that was coined by Steven Hankin of McKinsey & Company in 1997 to refer to an increasingly competitive landscape for recruiting and retaining talent. Today, this “war” has escalated
to new heights, commanding the attention of CEOs across all industries.
According to research recently published by McKinsey, more than three-quarters of Fortune 500 CEOs do not believe their companies are effective at attracting highly talented people. Of those CEOs who do consider their companies successful at attracting top talent, only 7% believe they are effective in retaining them.
In today’s hyperconnected labor market, recruitment and retention are not separate problems; they are two sides of the same coin. Companies that have adopted integrated strategies for recruitment and retention have a significant competitive advantage. But according to McKinsey’s data, this group represents only a small fraction of the Fortune 500. The rest of the HR universe is under tremendous
Teleworking has grown 115% in the past

move was surprising to many for two reasons:
• Nearly three-quarters of millennials express
a desire to have more opportunities to work
• Employers can save $11,000 per half-time

Research from leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has evidenced strong and growing interest in cloud deployment models. While public cloud has gotten the earliest attention, stronger adoption is happening within private and hybrid models.

Great customer service hinges on efficient order fulfillment — especially the initial processing of a customer’s order. With thousands of sales orders coming into most large organizations monthly, this mission-critical process can demand a significant portion of customer service representatives’ (CSRs') time and attention in the quest for near-perfect input accuracy and order fulfillment.
But such intensive personnel support isn’t necessary for effective order processing. Great customer service doesn’t have to be cumbersome. Sales order automation can transform customer service and operations which provide quantifiable benefits to the organization.
Automation provides an opportunity to improve order management by:
• Reducing error rates and decreasing costs per order
• Improving process transparency from receipt to archival
• Reducing reshipping and inventory problems
