    Cloud Migration Doesn’t Have To Be Scary

    , Sr. Marketing Manager

    When you envision migrating workloads to the cloud, it can seem overwhelming. One of the primary reasons it’s usually done is to reduce in-house operational overhead. In today’s workplace, SMB’s have stringent requirements (think compliance such as HIPAA, or PCI) that often require dedicated system administrators, network engineers and other IT staff but typically don’t have abundant budget dollars to bring in an internal team to manage them.

    Fueling Innovation With Diversity

    10 Tips To Create A More Inclusive Team Environment

    , Senior Vice President, Human Resources

    One of my favorite things to do during summer weekends is to go down the shore* to visit friends and share hysterical, mostly embarrassing memories, from long ago.  The stories never get old and, in fact, become a little better with time.  Hours spent with my friends are familiar, warm and easy – like being suspended in time.  They remind me of the slow, lazy days of summer when I was a kid and the biggest decision was a bomb pop or toasted almond.  My friends and I have so much in common – our age, values, education and earnings.  We like the same food, music, and many of the same activities.  Our visits are a nostalgic and comfortable time for everyone involved.

    Automate Color Quality At The Touch Of A Button

    IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer Ensures Consistent Color, Print To Print

    , Product Marketing Manager for Production Print

    Prior to my tenure at Konica Minolta, I worked in the graphic arts business designing all kinds of projects for various products and services.  Which is why I fit right in at Konica Minolta working to bring their production print products to market. Several years down the road and with a G7 certification under my belt, I now have an evolved respect for color. Not that I didn’t appreciate color and its use as a communication tool in graphic design. But, I now have a deeper understanding of the science behind color and the intricacies of managing color from screen to press; and why color has caused so many issues in the past for production printers who are serving graphic communicators and brand owners.

    Why Innovation Matters

    , National Practice Manager, Legal & Finance

    , National Sales Manager, Legal, All Covered

    “No pain, no gain.” We’ve all heard that phrase before and somehow has been instilled into our subconscious – that greater results come at the price of hard and even painful work. With new market drivers shaping the legal industry, followed by higher expectations on the delivery of legal services, hard work is not something that will ease up any time soon.  But, that doesn’t mean the challenges, both internal and external, need to make work even harder for you and your firm. So, what are your top pain points, and how can you tackle them? (more…)

    , Assistant Manager for Marketing Communications

    I don’t know about you, but I’m not particularly keen on being replaced by a robot at work, or being reduced to a virtual avatar. Technology is an incredible enabler across our development as humans as a whole – opening up new and exciting opportunities across personal and professional playing fields. But it can also create uncertainty, and fear, if not packaged with the right information. (more…)
