Employees like the ability to choose. Whether it be choosing the hours they

empowered, which tends to boost their job satisfaction.
Another area in which they enjoy being given choice is how they can
communicate and collaborate. To accommodate this choice, businesses will do
well to implement a bring your own device (BYOD) policy. This policy will
allow workers to choose whatever mobile device they prefer to carry out many

Unless you are an IT manager, understanding all of the technical details of
how big data technology — such as Hadoop Hive or Apache Pig as a Service
— works isn’t as important as understanding how big data can be used to
improve lives. Public safety, whether it’s reducing crime rates or
maintaining roads and bridges, is a huge undertaking with serious

(such as the connection between home games and crime rates discussed below)
to governments and businesses to help them keep cities safe, and better
Technology changes from one day to the next. Because of this, businesses have
a difficult time keeping up with the latest devices. A great way to overcome
this issue is to implement a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. Let's dive
in and take a close look at the top seven workers who benefit the most from
CEOs are often known for demanding the latest technological devices. Since
many companies can't keep up with their demands, by allowing them to bring
their own devices to work, the CEOs get to enjoy the benefit of using devices
that they prefer working with. Wheth... (more)
The phenomena of Big Data continues to grow as companies of all sizes start
to realize the potential ROI that comes from the correct use of massive
amounts of data. MIT found that firms who can leverage Big Data can achieve
5-6 percent greater productivity and profitability than their competitors.

Where’s Big Data’s next big splash going to be? We’ve already seen it
make waves in the healthcare industry as it combats death. It’s taken
athletics to the next level by monitoring millions of movements during an NBA
game and helping professional rugby players avoid potential injuries. It’s
entered the military, art and music industries too.
It seems to be everywhere.
Still, there are plenty of inroads to be made by Big Data into numerous
different sectors, one of which is higher education.
Perhaps one of the most important parts of the future of our country, or any
country for... (more)
