Managing Data with an Integrated Business Solution

Posted by Brock Broussard on Apr 9, 2014 3:50:49 PM

If your business's processes cover everything from maintaining data consistency to creating and keeping sales reports, you know how challenging data management can be. An integrated business solution can streamline operations across departments, but this kind of system may sound too complicated to deal with on a daily basis, especially in a fast-paced retail environment. New data integration technology can manage some processes automatically, making these systems simpler and more user-friendly -- not to mention profitable in the long run.

Lean on the Green, Part 2

Posted by Amos Hunt on Nov 7, 2013 6:58:19 AM

Before continuing our discussion of Taiichi Ohno's concept of muda as applied to the country club, there's one simple, but important distinction I want to make. Identifying an activity as waste does not always mean that activity should be eliminated or reduced. Every operation has to carefully distinguish between waste that is strictly waste and waste that is necessary auxiliary work, even if it doesn't directly add value. In the case of a country club, a certain amount of excess has to be sustained in order to keep up the aura of extravagance which is so essential to the members' experience. No matter how nice and well-kept everything is, a country club that doesn't maintain this aura is just a golf course with amenities.

Ever since the passing of Steve Jobs, however, its stock price hasn’t been the only variable in flux. As its established smartphone settled into a new tier with a first-of-its-kind 64-bit A7 processing chip, Apple aimed to bring in a new class of customers conscious about the 5S’s price by introducing a new line of “economy” iPhones. So far, it’s not clear that the 5C is being adopted as quickly as Apple anticipated. According to an analysis by Localytics, an analytics and marketing platform firm, the 5S is outselling the 5C in the 8 countries the two were released in.
