Business Agility and SaaS for Small and Mid-sized Businesses

24 February, 2015 - 11:40

Only big enterprises can afford the high upfront capital expenses of on-premises applications as well as skilled IT professionals to maintain the applications. Since small to mid-sized businesses have to do more with less, SaaS is clearly the best choice for managing growth, and business agility in ever-changing markets. A major reason is because SaaS eliminates the need for an infrastructure investment, platform development or expert manpower, which enables first order initiatives to hold top priority spot. All they need for SaaS is a basic computer with a browser. SaaS is a “pay as you use” subscription delivered to the business.

Using Big Data to Track Consumer Behavior

14 February, 2015 - 13:51

It seems like companies have an insatiable desire for information. In the era of big data there’s never enough, and organizations are constantly on the lookout not only for new types of information, but new sources from which to glean it. Of course, big data isn’t a crystal ball (though it’s sometimes hyped up to be), but it’s a great means of learning a number of different things, including personal preferences. The more we interact with different brands, and voice our opinions on social channels, the more we reveal who we are, our habits and overall behavior. That’s why marketers are so keen to adopt big data strategies. The more they know about us, they more they’ll know how to reach us.

Of course, this isn’t specific to any one industry. Big data analytics and understanding consumer behavior is just as important to healthcare providers as it is to steel manufacturers. However, while broad in its application, big data can certainly be more valuable to some companies than others, especially when a lot is on the line.
