The Key Is In The Cloud

February 28th 2014

If you work in telecommunication then you know Cloud computing is all the rage.

But what you may not know is that, behind this influx in cloud computing, lies an environmental motivator.

A recent study from Microsoft compared the environmental footprint of running business software internally or with an outsourced provider (in this case, Microsoft).

3 things To Take Away From Sochi

February 28th 2014

If you were watching the Winter Olympics closely, you’ll have noticed that many of the medal winners are using special mental rituals to maximize their performance.

In any one day of working in the telco sector you will most likely be faced with a high workload, a multitude of meetings with varying departments and an expectation that you are constantly 'on'.

The core problem with credit cards today for consumers is that they are fundamentally designed to encourage spending, in order to generate revenue for card companies and issuing banks. While debit cards are marginally better for consumers on an interest rate perspective, the lack of visibility on spend and overdraft fees means that in the US the average consumer pays $225.00 in fees per year[4] on a debit card/checking account – that includes all those “free” checking accounts, which are anything but!

It's Now Easy Being Green

February 26th 2014

Nature is valuable. But figuring out how valuable has been challenging. By some measures, the services that nature provides business and society — clean water, food and metals, natural defense from storms and floods, and much more — are worth many trillions of dollars. But that number is not helpful to companies trying to assess how dependent they are on natural resources, or how to value them as business inputs.
