Preparing for the Future of IT and Tech Consumption

on September 19, 2017 5:30 PM By | Chris Thierry | 0 Comments | Challenges Technologies Information technology
When it comes to purchasing new technology and investing in new systems, two particular individuals play a key role in the decision making process; the CFO and the CIO. IT priorities have been fluctuating over the past decade, and choosing where to invest requires a team effort. The CFO and CIO want to work together, and their ultimate goal is to participate in and lead the growth of the company. However, their roles within an organization are quite different. Chief Financial Officers want to make investment decisions with the cost and the return at the top of mind. The Chief Information Officer wants to invest based on software and technologies with the greatest potential for business transformation. In order to make effective decisions, the process must be business-focused, and more importantly, must incorporate the perspective of both of these C-Levels in order to maximize the benefits.

Please Take Part in National Distracted Driving Awareness Month

on April 18, 2014 8:00 AM By | Henry Cheang | 0 Comments | Core Values Smartphones Technologies Facts
April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month! Readers of this blog know that I’ve had other jobs before starting my stint here.  Among these, you can count “neuroscientist” and “driving researcher” among them. And it’s largely because of these experiences that I’ve taken a keen interest in recognizing April as National Distracted Driving Awareness Month.       Facts about injuries stemming from car accidents Basically, from being a neuroscientist who specialized in studying how different forms of brain damage impact various types of human cognition, I’ve had to both learn and teach about the injuries associated with car crashes. For the most recently-available statistics, we find that there are over 2,000 deaths and more than 166,000 injuries resulting from car crashes every year.

For example, the simple hammer is an extension of the fist that makes it stronger and tougher. The car extends the legs and increases their speed. The telephone increases hearing and speaking ability. However, technology is not static – technologies improve, advance, and – inevitably, invariably – become defunct. It was in that spirit that McLuhan predicted print media’s demise at the hands of rapidly-evolving audiovisual technologies.
