Connecting API’s (aka: Application Program Interfaces) has been a complex and almost secret tomb reserved for the savviest of developers to make a labyrinth of systems work together. The new trend is to open up API’s and make connectivity to various partners, technology platforms and ecosystems more democratized. This ‘opening’ provides new access for developers throughout the development chain to have standardized access to systems. Opening API’s allows for a smoother, faster way to integrate systems so everything works seamlessly together. It also promotes sharing across enterprises as thought leadership and innovation are often fortunate outcomes of…

If you put yourself in the shoes of a candidate facing a background check, you could empathize with it being a pretty stressful experience. Even among the most pure and innocent of applicants, there is always a risk that an error was made along the way that could yield a negative result. While candidates certainly have the right to request their background check report, it’s typically not something they ever consider. Generally, if an applicant makes it to the point of consenting to a background check as a condition of employment, it’s usually a formality. The candidate…

A recent survey by Tecmark in the UK revealed that the average smartphone user completed over 220 tasks on their device each day.* This is compared to an average of only 140 tasks completed on their desktops. Smartphone users are also utilizing their mobile devices early in the day – often before they even get out of bed; to check the weather, answer emails, and review job opportunities. And it’s also the last thing they do at night which adds up to over 3 hours and 15 minutes of mobile phone use each day on average. If…

Investing in technology upgrades is easy to put off, but dated hardware and software comes with its own set of consequences. Sticking to the old ways of doing business can send you (and your costs) careening into a bottomless pit of tech despair. Maintaining legacy systems is often “just something that you do” to keep your operations running, but old technology can have a creeping effect on your business. Operational efficiency isn’t the only casualty – you can lose your best people to newer, savvier firms with the latest tech, and worse, lose customers to more innovative,…

Change at the corporate level is often fraught with anxiety, dread, and procrastination. Office anxiety can reach a fever pitch before and during the change management process. As a leader, it’s your job to help your staff, clients, and other stakeholders accept and embrace change in your organization. Motivation is Key When people understand something, they are much more likely to embrace any change. It’s easier to quit smoking when you understand the health and social impact of your behavior. Corporate change is no different. It’s your job to effectively and accurately communicate not only the change…

In today’s vast technological marketplace, you are no longer shopping for hardware, you are shopping for an ecosystem. To get what we mean, let’s break this down to an item we all know of, a tablet. When you are shopping for a tablet, it is not all about the hardware. Yes, you want the tablet to have a powerful battery, and to not die under pressure, but more importantly, you want a tablet that has an ecosystem that fits your needs. If you are buying a tablet for reading books and magazine articles, for instance, the Amazon…

Director James Cameron produced the blockbuster Titanic with icebergs that sat high in the water for maximum dramatic effect for movie audiences. In reality, icebergs conceal 95% of their mass below the waterline. The “icebergs” in your industry are the same as the real-life ones – lurking below the surface, waiting to cause massive damage if you fail to navigate around them in time. They seem innocuous until you look under the surface so it’s important to keep a watchful eye for any indication of trouble on the horizon. Massive disruptions are out there, and it’s up…
