Technology is all around us nowadays. If you think about it we do not go anywhere without our laptops or smart phones because we are afraid of losing the connection with the world. But why people became addicted to technology? I think the answer to this question is quite obvious. People became addicted simply because first – technology is widely used by great amount of people all over the world, there are no borders for it; second – technology can really make our lives easier. For example, thanks to VoiP programs such as Skype, we can cheaply get in touch with our families, living two thousand kilometers from us, which certainly is the case with me. Continue reading
What do you do, when you want to find a certain company, but you do not now its name? The first think that I do in this case is simply to open Google and type in something related to the activities of the company. For example, I was recently wondering where from can I buy a car, driven purely on electricity. To quickly get all the answers I typed the term “electrical car” in the Google browser, and of course I got all the information that I needed.
Why should we spend our money and time in creating sophisticated websites, for the needs of our business, when people can not find it easily through the most widely used search engines, like Google or Bing for example? How you understand this is a rhetoric question. Simply building up our website and putting all the vital information in there is not enough. We should pay much attention on the search engine optimization because it can greatly contribute to more people visiting our website.
As a result of the financial crisis now more and more companies are trying to reduce their operating costs by finding a cost-effective access to new technologies that would enable them to easily adapt to the unstable business environment. How you can imagine the easiest way for them to achieve that is by outsourcing. Hudson & Yorke mentioned that common industrial estimates show that outsourcing provides banks with savings of around 20-40%. That is why it is very clear that financial organizations would continue to invest further in outsourcing services.
For the past two years my main concern was to find what I am going to do after I finish my studies. Nowadays it is really hard to find a nice position in the desired field because the competition between the highly qualified professionals is really intense.
Thanks to my parents I am lucky to study in prestigious educational institution, which would contribute to my future career. I was also recently appointed as a technical consultant in a project development company, which to a great extent enabled me to see how one international organisation functions. What I derived as a conclusion was the fact that in order to develop a reliable company’s strategy for the future, you need to have up-to-date financial information that you can rely on. Constantly being aware of the financial strengths and abilities of your company would help you maintain steady economic growth. Motivated by this idea I want to tell you a little more about how companies can better manage their finances by using Financial Management Software.
In my last block post I tried to introduce to you some ways in which, with the help of social media management tools, you can optimize the use of your social media. And when it comes to building up career, optimization is a very important aspect, one that we should pay a lot of attention on. With the improvement of social media, business also changes. We can see a major shift in the way business is done nowadays, and this shift is mostly caused by the advancement in technology. In order to keep our business running we need to be aware of the future trends in technology and social media.
Nowadays almost everybody, who has connection to the internet, has created at least one account in a particular social media such as Facbook or Twitter. That is just the case with me. I have two Twitter accounts, one Facebook and one Tumbler account, which I need to visit and update at least two times a day, which is quite a lot of work to do. And maybe the biggest problem comes from the fact that by not checking my profiles on a regular bases, I would end up in a big mess. In order to benefit from the use of these social media I need to be in contact with them all the time, which sometimes is just not possible, because I also have other obligations that cannot be left behind.
Recently when I was browsing through the Internet I came across an interesting video on Youtube called “Social Media Management” representing some very astonishing facts for social media as a whole.
What Erik Qualman said – “We don’t have a choice on whether we do social media, the question is how well we do it” – is totally right because if we want to be part of this socialized world we also have to be part of its unifying structures – the social media. Continue reading
In my last post I informed you a little about what the term “Biomimetcs” means and I also gave you some examples for the use of Biomimetics in technology and architecture. As I am now totally obsessed about this fascinating topic I thought it will be a good idea to continue my research in this area.
As I was browsing through the internet in search of some interesting results on the topic of “Biomimetics”, I understood that there is actually another word describing the same term – “Biomimicry”. When I entered this term into the search engine I came across far more interesting results. First I found out a very inspiring video by Janine Benyus, describing the Biomimicry in action. In this video, Janine Benyus gives a lot of examples of nature inspired technologies. She also sends a clear message to the viewers, that when we are trying to solve a technological issue, we first have to look at the nature and its creations, because only there we can find all the answers.
