For many small to medium size companies, finding the time to proactively manage employee performance is difficult. The emphasis is more often on increasing revenues and achieving stability, especially in the early days. However, as businesses grow, the need for improving staff engagement, productivity and loyalty becomes increasingly important. It is at this critical stage that Performance Management can mean the difference between businesses that experience sustained growth and those whose momentum falters.

Earning and keeping your customer’s trust is one key to long-term success. In
today’s digital world, your customers expect product and service innovations at an
increasingly rapid pace. At the same time, customer privacy and data security are
under close scrutiny.
These trends help to explain why organizations are migrating to Amazon Web
Services (AWS): to benefit from the agility, scalability, and security that it offers.
AWS has always put cloud security first. This security-centric approach not only
helps you more effectively protect your data on AWS, but can also help you meet
security and compliance standards.
Safeguarding your data is more important than ever.
In today’s data-driven business landscape, companies are using their data to innovate, inform product improvements, and personalize services for their customers. The sheer volume of data collected for these purposes keeps growing, but the solutions available to organizations for processing and analyzing it become more efficient and intuitive every day. Reaching the right customers at the right time with the right offers has never been easier. With this newfound agility, however, comes new opportunities for vulnerability.
With so much riding on the integrity of your data and the services that make it secure and available, it’s crucial to have a plan in place for unexpected events that can wipe out your physical IT environment or otherwise compromise data access. The potential for natural disasters, malicious software attacks, and other unforeseen events necessitates that companies implement a robust disaster recovery (DR) strategy to
Today’s organisations are tasked with analysing multiple data types, coming from a wide variety of sources. Faced with massive volumes and heterogeneous types of data, organisations are finding that in order to deliver analytic insights in a timely manner, they need a data storage and analytics solution that offers more agility and flexibility than traditional data management systems. A data lake is an architectural approach that allows you to store enormous amounts of data in a central location, so it’s readily available to be categorised, processed, analysed, and consumed by diverse groups within an organisation? Since data—structured and unstructured—can be stored as-is, there’s no need to convert it to a predefined schema and you no longer need to know what questions you want to ask of your data beforehand.
