This months theme - 'Leveraging Technology' - is super hot in the business world right now, and if you didn't know that, perhaps that's a warning sign for you!
Before diving into the articles we've shared here, I highly encourage you to start with my interview with Clayton Oates simply because the world of 'online' or 'cloud' technology is transforming so quickly. Clayton helps to put it all in perspective and gives some great points to consider before getting lost in the vortex of cloud options.
Software today is becoming so capable and affordable that being aware of what is possible really is key to staying current. Simply said, those who adopt and benefit from the exponential growth in tech, will very quickly out-maneuver those who don't.
It can definitely give your company a competitive edge.
But before you dive in either out of excitement or fear - do so with caution. Cloud technology is an emerging space. While many players are claiming to have seamless solutions, the reality is that most are still finding their way. So do your homework (which can in itself be an onerous task).
My advice - Educate yourself to a basic level (though enough to be dangerous, as they say) then engage a cloud integrator (specialist who knows more than you about this new field) who has an objective view of the market and can truly help you get the solution that will best serve your company. I have a few I work with, so if you need some recommendations, just reach out.
Now with my disclaimers aside ... enjoy 🙂
