BOSTON, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The BizOps Coalition, which advocates for fundamental change in the way business and IT collaborate in modern software development, today announced its BizOps Manifesto, a new framework designed to connect technology investments to business outcomes.

Leaders across industries have learned that too often, software investments are not tied to business outcomes. A recent survey revealed that 78 percent of respondents said the disconnect between IT and business units results in significant costs[1]. This misalignment often creates waste and hinders productivity and innovation.

“The harsh, ‘new normal’ reality requires a significant focus on connecting business metrics and outcomes to every IT product and project. To accomplish these objectives, IT leadership teams require pragmatic operating models and frameworks that reduce business risks and increase operational and team efficiencies,” said Stephen Elliot, program vice president, Management Software and DevOps at IDC. “IT and business leaders who adopt

Many website owners have faced the following scenario quite often: After creating and publishing the best piece of content ever on their website, they sit back and hope to see it show up in Google – and then, nothing happens.

Holbaek (Denmark), and Karlsruhe (Germany) — Two guys from Denmark (Brian Petersen) and Germany(Fabian Pott) are dealing with the same struggle as every other website owners: SEO.

“Build it, and they would come” does not seem to work, say the two. Especially on a brand-new domain without any authority in the eyes of Google.

“Without a reputation, you are a nobody, and Google needs to see and understand that you have relevance to rank you in Google – and the secret sauce is to gain links from sites that already have gained trust and authority,” says Brian Petersen.

By gaining links from relevant sites in a niche, it is

9 Global Experts Weigh In

October 7, 2020 | technology | No Comments

I wanted to investigate if Covid-19 has made it harder for VC’s and startups to discover each other, for startups to pitch and get funded, and for B2C and B2B customers to learn about new offerings.  One might think investors would have been paralyzed by:

·       The uncertainty of how long Covid and its economic impact would last

·       The near impossibility of in-person networking for founders and VC’s

·       Lower spending by consumers either unemployed or fearful of layoffs, and businesses whose spending has been curtailed

·       Reduced ability for consumers to discover, touch, feel and experience new products and services physically in retail outlets 

9 global experts, with different perspectives, shared their views.  To my surprise, all 9 were optimistic that on the whole, things have been much better

The digital transformation underway across all sectors of the economy means that demand for technology professionals is soaring.

Even before the pandemic, it was clear that demand for technology skills and leadership was on the march. A study conducted by Faethm in association with the Australian Computer Society (ACS) reveals that although automation and AI are going to transform all industry sectors and displace some workers, over the coming 15 years as many as 5.6 million new jobs could be added to the Australian economy – a quarter of them in technology-related roles.

The annual Digital Pulse report – prepared by Deloitte for the ACS – suggests that the nation’s technology workforce will grow by just over 3 per cent for the next five years, and reach a million people by 2027. It’s an encouraging trajectory but an organisation like Iress, a fintech which is founded on solving complex problems

Experts say Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government is going to have a challenging time coordinating between different departments to roll out funding for broadband internet projects as the Canadian Infrastructure Bank (CIB) announced $2 billion to connect Canadians.

Trudeau, with Infrastructure Minister Catherine McKenna, and Michael Sabia, chair of the board of the CIB, announced Thursday the $10 billion CIB’s growth plan in an effort to support Canada’s COVID-19 economic recovery. 

The additional $1 billion from the CIB that was announced in the 2019 budget, will connect about 750,000 homes and small businesses to broadband services in “underserved communities,” over the next three years. Sabia said funds from today’s announcement will be rolled out by the end of 2020.

John Lawford, executive director and general counsel of the Public Interest Advocacy Centre, said in an

  • Channel 4 on Monday revealed a leaked cache of data from the Trump 2016 presidential campaign.
  • The data showed how the campaign microtargeted people on Facebook, and labelled a particular group of users as targets for “deterrence” from voting. This group was disproportionately made up of Black users.
  • Experts told Business Insider the report highlights the threat that microtargeting on a vast platform like Facebook’s poses towards democratic elections.
  • “Facebook talks a lot about bad actors misusing its platform, but the truth is that the biggest bad actor on Facebook is Facebook,” one said.

SEO Services for your Business.

In the digital marketing field, if you want to tell a clueless company apart from the rest, just wait to hear the first question out of their mouth. Nine times out of ten, it`ll be some version of “What  does an SEO company do?” or “Do I even need SEO services?”

Let`s not pull any punches here:

Nowadays, a question like that reveals either a blatant lack of market understanding or a half-baked management strategy. It tells more about the company than they`d probably want to.

It speaks of an SEO company that has problems reaching its audience. A company not doing nearly as well as it should be.

As one of the leading SEO firms in the business, questions like these raise a clear red flag when we evaluate companies to work with. It means they avoid dealing with the problems that such a

Create a Win7 Gadget | Experts Exchange

May 6, 2020 | gadget | No Comments

This article shows you how to create a simple “Gadget” — a sort of mini-application supported by Windows 7 and Vista.  Gadgets can be dropped anywhere on the desktop to provide instant information, or to act as a gateway to a website or a larger program.  

What I like about gadgets is that they are really just small HTML pages.  That means:  No big-project development overhead.  If you have Notepad.exe and some knowledge about HTML, then you can write your own gadget.  Like HTAs, they run with with full local-program privileges, and can use ActiveX objects.  There is no limit to the creative things you can do with gadgets.Fig. 1-1:  Win7 gadgets!
