Developer Community Key to Powering Workplace Innovation
LinkedIn
May 25, 2023
My degree in international business and MBA in finance did not teach me how to code. I was an accountant for a tech company during the early days of my career and that meant learning to program on my own. My desk looked like a reference librarian’s with two-inch-thick product guides and technical manuals perched on my desk. I was lucky. I had great mentors (thank you, David, for patiently teaching me to design top performing applications!) and something else unique to many developers: endless curiosity.

Multi-Cloud Cost Management: Navigating Uncertain Economics
LinkedIn
April 25, 2023
Businesses are quickly realizing the benefits of using the cloud, and their decisions reflect this. According to Gartner’s ‘cloud shift’ research, by 2025, 51% of IT spending in application software, infrastructure software, business process services and system infrastructure markets will have shifted from traditional solutions to the cloud. Additionally, spending on cloud technologies in application software will increase from 57.7% in 2022 to 65.9% in 2025.

Embracing Pragmatic Innovation to Build Resilience
LinkedIn
March 15, 2023
Innovation is a key factor in determining the success of any organization, but many companies struggle with it because they haven’t defined or measured it properly. It’s hard to measure something as intangible as an idea, which is why tying innovation to a business outcome is crucial. By understanding how innovation can mitigate supply chain disruptions, add value to customers, reduce dependency on high-cost suppliers, optimize working capital and engineering capacity, companies can be driven to innovate and innovate in the right areas.

The 3Rs for CEOs Preparing for AI, Data – and a Recession
LinkedIn
March 01, 2023
Many of the CEOs I talk to are hungry to grow at scale. This calls for increased revenue without substantial costs from pricey acquisitions or infrastructure investment. These same leaders, however, face unprecedented challenges: the race to integrate artificial intelligence (AI), data security and protection, and a looming recession (predicted to be anywhere from mild to catastrophic, depending upon your news source).

Women in Tech: The 4Ps Strategy to Address the Underrepresentation and Build a More Inclusive Industry
LinkedIn
February 22, 2023
The tech industry has long been known for its lack of gender diversity, with women significantly underrepresented in tech occupations. Despite the growing demand for tech talent and the increasing awareness of the issue, progress in addressing this gender disparity has been slow. According to a 2021 report by the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), women hold only 26% of computing occupations in the US. The lack of women in tech is not only an equity issue but also a business issue, as companies with more diverse workforces have been shown to outperform their less diverse peers. Let’s look at the challenges faced by women in tech, the benefit of having more women in tech, success stories and the efforts being made to support women in tech.

5Qs for CIOs and CFOs to Ask About Corporate Travel and Expense in 2023
LinkedIn
January 18, 2023
How important is the relationship between technology and financial leaders? Two words: game changer. Yet, according to Gartner, only “30% of CFO-CIO relationships can be described as strong digital partnerships – capable of outperforming their peers in financial management practices that are unique to funding digital.” One area where the two can work more closely together is travel and expense management. Why? Because business travel drives competition and revenue, and expenses are one of the largest sources of employee spending.

In Vegas, there are no sure bets. The global cyber insurance industry, however, comes close when you’re talking about expansion and growth. According to MarketsandMarkets research, the global cyber insurance market is set to grow from $11.9 billion in 2022 to $29.2 billion by 2027. Reasons include more sophisticated cyber-attacks, increasing potential of financial losses and more complex regulatory compliance. Some areas of business are more vulnerable than others. Industries topping the list with the most cyber insurance claims include manufacturing, financial services and healthcare, plus all highly regulated industries. Cyber-attacks are on the rise with ransomware increasing by 93% in 2021.

Investors rely on financial statements for their investment decisions. Empirical studies have shown that stock prices often change dramatically with the release of earnings reports and earnings per share estimates. In considering earnings reports, Wall Street Analysts and investors generally ignore restructuring changes when determining the quality and persistence of corporate earnings. Are restructuring activities insignificant or do they signal value to investors? This paper discusses challenges found in the current GAAP treatment of restructuring charges.

What Mt. Everest Taught Me about Scaling Tech Startup
Hub88
August 09, 2019
Over 17,000 feet up in the Himalayan air sits Base Camp Everest – a gray, barren, rocky place that could serve as a model for camp grounds on the moon. Climbers arrive at Base Camp excited and apprehensive, confident and anxious – much like companies leveraging emerging technologies to improve customer experience. Helen Yu should know: Twelve years ago, she scaled Mt. Everest to Base Camp, and two years ago she founded a firm called Tigon Advisory – it helps start-ups cure the strategy-to-execution gaps that threaten their go-to market plans. Ms. Yu will share four lessons that apply to scaling mountains and companies.

Startups, Cure Your Disconnects
TiECon
May 11, 2019
All start-ups have them: strategy-to-execution gaps that disconnect “where you are” from where you want to be; where you need to be. You’ll need to cure these gaps to reach the promised land of traction – home to sustainable revenue growth. Said differently, you’ll need to survive the gauntlet that is “go-to-market” – a minefield whose vagaries doom 80% of start-ups. In this invaluable session for entrepreneurs, Ms Helen Yu shows start-ups how to do exactly that. It begins by dissecting the “traction gap” into five disconnects – like process inadequacies and poor product-market fit – and applying strategies and tactics proven to cure them. Among them: solutions that will strengthen customer experience, support customer success, and create technological advantages from proof of concept and prototyping to product launch.
