    How to build a digital backbone for your company 

    When you hear someone say: “Get a backbone,” what do you think? You probably assume that the individual in question is weak or lacks conviction. The same can hold true in an organization. If your company lacks a digital backbone - the fundamental, structural support for all your systems, apps, networks, and employees - it is probably too weak to meet…

    Why hyperautomation is one of the top trends for 2022

    Hyperautomation is not just a buzzword (although it is a good one), it is a trend that is about to move from slow burn to incendiary in 2022.

    APIs can bring legacy back to life

    Behind every successful business stands a mainframe or a neglected enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform; unloved but still very much needed. Since the Harvard Mark 1 was launched in the 1940s, organizations have been using technology to help run their businesses.

    Three keys to maximizing value in the cloud

    Sometimes, you just cannot resist building a piece of technology yourself; not realizing that it will indeed take more time and resources than simply buying it.
