International expansion comes with some very specific challenges, not least cultural differences, language barriers and competition from home-grown players in a new region. This can be particularly challenging for high-growth organisations that often find themselves expanding rapidly without established structures and processes, lack of experienced staff, stretched resources and a strategy that is also evolving as they grow.
There’s no two ways about it: going global can be a risky business, even if the potential rewards are high.

A Great Use of the Cloud: Recent trends in information management see companies shifting their focus to, or entertaining a notion for the first time of a cloud-based solution. In the past, the only clear choice for most organizations has been on-premises data—oftentimes using an appliance-based platform. However, the costs of scale are gnawing away at the notion that this remains the best approach for all or some of a company’s analytical needs.
This paper, written by McKnight Consulting analysts William McKnight and Jake Dolezal, describes two organizations with mature enterprise data warehouse capabilities, that have pivoted components of their architecture to accommodate the cloud.

Cloud computing is transforming IT in terms of how services are delivered, how infrastructure is deployed and managed, and how IT organizations structure themselves. For the purposes of this study, Forrester is defining a cloud solution as having three major characteristics: “self-service access, full automation of processes and policies, and metering and tracking of usage.”1 It then becomes a question of whether you manage your cloud(s) yourself, outsource it, or use a hybrid combination of private and public cloud resources.
Competition is growing fierce for restaurants — and not all of it comes from other
local dining establishments. With grocery stores and meal kit services offering
additional convenient and affordable dining options for customers to choose from,
and with many restaurants turning to faster and smarter automation methods to
power their operations, now is the time for your restaurant to step up its game.
Ultimately, what your restaurant needs to do is offer a complete experience for your
guests. The only way to effectively do this is to understand the whole diner journey
and how the decisions you make along the way affect it.
In his 1966 book “The Psychology of Science,” American psychologist Abraham Maslow tackled the idea that those in the field of psychology needed to approach treatment from multiple perspectives, to take on new ideas, and not just continue using the same theories and techniques created by Freud and his followers so many years ago. Acknowledging that changing your point of view can be difficult, Maslow wrote “[I]t is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything like a nail.” We have all had this experience. We get so used to the way things have been done in the past, we sometimes don’t question the reasons for doing them.

Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.
As IT becomes the cloud, and ever more central to business success, projects to transform the IT systems, and more specifically the data center, have become strategic and a competitive differentiator. A crucial piece of the data center transformation puzzle, and one which is too often left until the end, is the network. As the central nervous system of the data center, its transformation must be an integral part of the entire data center transformation project.
