    When Disaster Strikes – What a Recovery Plan Means for your Company

    Konica Minolta Provides Businesses with Peace of Mind if Disaster Strikes

    , Director, Enterprise Content Management

    Businesses use Information Technology to quickly and effectively process data every day. Employee communications via email, phone, smartphone apps and corporate social networks get faster and faster, enabling colleagues and clients near and far to get your information immediately.  All this electronic data (EDI) is critical for business operations, from transmitting purchase orders and payments to communicating policies and procedures.   Whether in-house or off-premise, you rely on your IT support systems to be up-to-date and work seamlessly to enable the transmission of data, store your information and give you access to what you need when you need it.

While traditional advertising might appear to be fading into its final days, advertising is actually far from dead! It simply needs to be smarter, and drive lasting connections and impressions with end customers. (more…)

The physical, biological vehicle of our bodies (including our eyes, hands, skin and brains) provides the field of gravity that grounds the sensory perception that fuels our minds. This element of subjective material existence is paralleled by the awareness and influence of our environmental settings, such as homes, offices or stores. (more…)
