2014 is almost here – and that means it’s out with the old, and in with the new. If staying productive and happy at the same time is one of your goals (and why shouldn’t it be?), here are five ways to work smarter now and through the next year. See if you agree with our top tips.

  1. Be happy first.

If you think that being productive will make you happy, think again. Psychologist Shawn Achor’s work has been devoted to discovering how happiness affects human potential. As he explains in his hilarious TEDx talk, your external world has very little to do with your actual happiness. In fact, just 10% of your happiness is determined by outside factors. The rest comes from inside. When you’re happier, you’re naturally more productive – so focus on the feeling first.

Cloud Security: A Next Gen Guide for Manufacturers

Posted by joe moriarty

Jan 6, 2014 7:30:00 AM

As more and more manufacturers implement cloud computing into operations, protecting intellectual property rights through cloud security has become crucial. According to industry expert Cindy Jutras of MintJutras, “SaaS-based applications are 22% of all manufacturing and distribution software installed today, and will grow to 45% within ten years.” Here are some specific ways that cloud computing is being used and how next gen manufacturers are using cloud security to keep their intellectual property safe.

Areas of Operations

Collaborating on product design via a cloud platform is one way that manufacturers are streamlining the process of new product development. With multiple parties having access to the same real-time data, it’s easier and more convenient to share ideas and get products to market. If there are issues along the way, they can quickly be dealt with so that the overall progress isn’t hindered. This means that goals can be reached with less difficulty than in the past and products can be launched with fewer setbacks.

Another aspect of cloud computing that’s advantageous is the Business Intelligence and analytics that most platforms offer. Whether it’s comparing actual sales versus sales quotas or tracking the various channels of a marketing campaign, manufacturers have constant access to a wealth of data. This allows executives and managers to make highly educated decisions based on concrete evidence rather than mere speculation.

3 Ways to Create a Successful Mobile Center of Excellence

Posted by joe moriarty

Dec 27, 2013 7:30:00 AM

One term that’s receiving more attention in an increasingly BYOD oriented world is mobile center of excellence (mCoE). This term is defined by Forrester Research as “a coordinating force majeure, comprising approximately 25 to 100 technology and business staff under the leadership of a senior executive and a supporting mobile architecture council.” Simply put, it’s a group of experts with the skills to provide mobile solutions and develop an efficient plan. Here is why companies need a mobile center of excellence and how to create one. 

The Advantages

A more streamlined workforce is perhaps the biggest benefit. When implementing mobile devices and apps, there is the potential for numerous setbacks. By having a group of tech savvy individuals that are dedicated solely to this type of technology, operations can more run smoothly and glitches should be minimal. These team members can devise the optimal solutions for their company, develop suitable apps and create an infrastructure that makes everyone’s life easier.

With many industries constantly evolving, a mobile center of excellence can keep up with this change and make the necessary adjustments. This puts a company in a position to stay perpetually ahead of the competition and ultimately thrive. On the other hand, lacking a central nucleus puts stress on the handful of employees responsible for tackling mobile issues, which can adversely affect a company’s overall productivity. If you’re interested in this concept, here are three ways to create a mCoE.
