Creeping Decentralization and CRM

One of the big stories of next year might be decentralization. Decentralization is what it sounds like: pushing centralized processes and decision-making to the periphery, where it is believed people can be more effective at dealing with whatever is on tap.

Startup buys young blood, injects it into older people

It sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it’s real: Ambrosia, a startup from entrepreneur Jesse Karmazin, pays for the blood of people under the age of 25, then sells anyone over age 35 a transfusion of the younger blood for $8,000—the only US company to offer such a service, Vanity Fair reports.

App Dev Today

Last year, I researched the impact of the proliferation of cloud computing on business. I know it sounds like a dry topic, but if you are a CIO or an application development manager, the results can have serious meaning.

The cloud is just a better way to deliver application functionality at a reasonable price to a growing universe of companies.

Destination Cloud: Are We There Yet?

Many use it successfully to build and manage their growing business, but many others fall victim to problems. What, exactly, is the cloud?
