Digital Transformation; a load of old horse? by Harvey Neve

Many years ago, as a young brewery sales manager, I was talking to the new transport manager who'd recently taken over from someone who’d “been there years.” Now that he was settled in he was starting to have a look at things and one of the things he wondered about was the seemingly erratic delivery route planning; On a Monday the dray lorries would go out to customers on the very extremities of the delivery area and the next day they were all within a stone’s throw of the brewery. Wednesday they were moderately far away, the following day round the doors again and on a Friday right out at

The Business of Brexit; Digitization and More… by George Kemish

We all seem to be so busy these days, what with digitization (including digital tax reporting); coping with the current economic situation; whilst managing constant changes in the internal and external business environments; I wonder if we are losing sight of the need to plan long-term.  The uncertainty of Brexit would also appear to have taken its toll on the normal planning cycle, with sixty-two percent of businesses having not yet undertaken a Brexit Risk Assessment and seventy-five percent having failed to plan to manage the potential financial impact of Brexit on their activities (acco

The First 100 Days of the New CISO: Expectations vs. Reality by Jean-Christophe Gaillard

A painfully recurrent complaint among Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) is the disconnect between what they were promised during the recruitment process, and the actual situation they find upon starting the job.
