Surely you know the parable. One guy builds his house on rock. It's tough, it's expensive, but the house is secure and it lasts. The other guy constructs his home on sand. Easy, cheap ... but then it slides into the ocean. Everything's lost. A story to encourage children to work hard?...

Gartner has been predicting for last five years that cloud computing will have a transformational impact in next 2 to 5 year! So, it is a good time to step back and ask ourselves… I think the answer cannot be given in simple black-and-white term like “Yes” or “No”. Like the answer to ...

Businesses live and die by their ability to sell. Despite common belief, the key to successful selling in the cloud doesn't rely on the technology infrastructure behind the scenes -- the real key is in billing. In essence, a cloud solution is an agreement between the vendor and the us...
If Homer only knew back in 1994 that smartphone mobile apps would someday start to creep into precious TV viewing time, he probably would have written, ‘No Smartphone and No Specialty Beer Make Homer Go Crazy,’ in the Simpson’s classic Treehouse of Horror V. It’s no surprise that time...

When small business owners think of software, they think of email, file management, and…. CRM. Shorthand for “Contact Relationship Management,” CRMs help businesses organize their customers, leads and sales. Important stuff. Unfortunately, choosing a CRM isn’t easy. The Google Apps ma...

Originally posted at www.kellerfay.com When people consume media together, either in-home or out-of-home, does it help or hurt advertising effectiveness? The argument that it hurts the advertiser is the “distraction” model, which argues that the presence of other people distracts peopl...

The real value of video, photo, and textual records of an event may be in the raw form it is recorded. While we expect a news media source, whether a newspaper, magazine, or television news program to provide a factual report on an event, it is not a guarantee. Any person who has tra...
As the latest research, surveys and reports about content marketing begin surfacing, I'm wondering if B2B marketers are really embracing change or if they're stuck in the past? Time and again, I see lead generation as a top priority goal while lead nurturing comes in at the bottom of ...
Nobody can foresee events such as natural disasters. They happen, are often tragic, and history records the event as a snapshot in time. Sometimes that history is based on well-documented photos, videos, and personal observations, and sometimes it is recorded as reality determined by p...
