How to Optimize Your Business Resources

There is an unwritten rule when it comes to hiring for start-ups: recruit only when your employees are 120% stretched. In other words, start-ups cannot afford to have employees who are not a hundred percent utilized. There is simply no room for ‘excess’. But while this makes business sense, you may also be bringing down the morale of your employees by overworking them. The solution is to optimize your business resources, so that you can extract greater productivity from your team before you start recruiting new people.

How to eliminate ROT and bring your data together

BY Jan Carter - Head of Product & Development
November 1, 2017

Information management consultants spill a lot of ink about the costs of badly organized data. Few are as incisive as Kevin Parker, winner of the 2016 AIIM leadership award and Senior VP at Tahzoo, an Inc-500-ranked digital CX compan y. He uses the acronym "ROT" to communicate the dangers of bad data management. ROT (i.e., Redundant, Obsolete and Trivial data) writes Parker, represents the junk cluttering up information systems -- leading to wasted time, unreliable reports and bad decisions, costing your business money.

Why Database Security Matters and What You Can Do to Enhance It

BY Lucy Jones - Guest Blogger

Why Database Security Matters and What You Can Do to Enhance ItWhat’s so unique about The Library of Alexandria? It was one of the most influential centers of learning in the classical world, so influential that scholars travelled to it from all over the world. The great works contained there included mathematics, astronomy, physics, natural sciences and poetry. This all ended in 48 BC, when the library was destroyed - one of the earliest examples of the devastating effect of data loss, with over 500,000 irreplaceable scrolls reportedly lost.

The advent of digital data storage was supposed to increase the level of data security, but it’s not always the case.
