Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review, less than half of an organization’s structured data is actively used in making decisions. The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.

Since the term “omni-channel” was first coined by the Harvard Business Review in 2011, some marketing technology vendors claimed that they could provide businesses with this holy grail of brand ubiquity.

We’ll give you a heads up on the roadblocks you’ll encounter on your journey to achieving omni-channel relevance and the benefits you’ll gain once you reach your destination.

Testing is critical to the success of any application. In fact, your software is only as good as the testing team behind it and their ability to identify bugs before they find their way into production. Practically speaking, that means that building and nurturing an effective testing team is mission critical. But, of course, doing so is a lot easier said than done. That's because to be successful, today’s testing teams need to be cross-functional, efficient, and focused on the right things. They also have to be fully bought in and worthy of deep trust. As a result, finding the right candidates can be a challenge, so you have to get creative. Not only that, to attract and retain the best talent, you need to keep them motivated by giving them ample opportunities to learn and advance their career, while not weighing them down with the burden of time-consuming and unnecessary administrative tasks. Instead, you want to equip your team with the right tools to enable and empower them.

Great leaders become great by balancing strategy with tactics, future vision with current reality and strengths with weaknesses – all with the goal of accomplishing a clearly defined objective. Great leaders also understand that people are the most valuable resources within their organization. To drive and inspire their success, you must optimize strengths while recognizing inherent weaknesses. Many of our daily human experiences and interactions involve machines or devices of some sort.
