Generation Y And Workplace Transformation

I recently attended the Computing Enterprise Mobility Summit in London and among several interesting speakers was Intel’s thought leader Jim Henrys. Jim spoke on workplace transformation and providing a workplace that would attract Generation Y recruits. While much of Jim’s presentation was interesting, insightful and spot on, his observations on Generation Y didn’t match the real-world experiences I’ve had of this dynamic and above all, varied group.

A Roundtable Perspective on Enterprise Mobility

By Lindsay Britz, Marketing Manager, Magic Software South Africa

I recently had the honor of participating in an industry roundtable held at one of the local IT publications in Johannesburg where a group of high level representatives had an in-depth discussion on the topic of enterprise mobility.

All participants came representing different technologies and focusing on different aspects of enterprise mobility. Consequently, I had anticipated that there would be radically different and opposing views on the topic; but what was interesting however was the similarity of general themes that were discussed and agreed by all parties.

The Data "Big Bang": Integrating Your Systems to Fully Benefit from the Big Data Phenomenon

Data is overshadowing IT in size, volume, and complexity, and it's growing daily. The Data Big Bang is here, and luckily technology is finally catching up, making it possible and feasible, even for smaller enterprises, to leverage and transform their big data into truly useful and actionable business intelligence.
Organizations finally understand that they have always been sitting on valuable data they should mine and transform into information to better understand their customers, vendors, and employees. There is only one problem: the data is not usually in a centralized database or in the proper formats and structures to enable "fast-enough" analysis for it to be leveraged as meaningful business information.
