Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella describes 2 new kinds of software that will change everything for businesses (MSFT)

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has two very specific examples of what's next when it comes to business software. Specifically, he sees two new categories of software emerging. One new category will track the performance of products as customers use them. It is business software built on the concept of Internet of Things, where objects get sensors and apps. The second adds a layer of artificial-intelligence magic on top of it all, which will be designed to anticipate problems (like something break...

The CEO of Kroger, America's largest supermarket chain, explains why the company's merger with the country's 6th-favorite grocer puts them in the perfect position to take on Amazon and Whole Foods (KR)

5 Keys to Working with Remote Team Members Effectively

By Roy Rasmussen Talent shortage is a major problem for companies today. With qualified workers in short supply and more positions than workers available, many businesses are struggling to fill key positions. Improvements in the economy have actually aggravated the issue by reducing unemployment and intensifying competition for available workers.

Customers are the lifeblood of every business. But as a business grows, managing growth and organizing information becomes increasingly more difficult. What used to be easy when you had one employee and two customers is more difficult when you employ five people and have 25 customers. Not every business owner is prepared for their business to grow. But if you want your business to succeed, you must evolve the way you manage your business to match the growth of the business. This means doing som...

This incredibly simple tool gives every website you visit a 'dark mode'

A web browser extension lets you change the color theme of websites from bright and/or white to dark mode.  The extension is called Dark Reader, and it's available for free for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.  Dark modes on pretty much everything — including operating systems, apps, and websites — are much more comfortable for your eyes, especially when you're in a dark room.  I'm going to go ahead and claim that one of the biggest oversights in modern tech is darkness — blissful, easy-on-the-ey...

And when Robbins officially took over, he called his shot: Under his leadership, Cisco would move faster — much faster — to stay ahead of the changing times.  At the time, Cisco was still a Silicon Valley powerhouse, but doubts were beginning to swirl. Companies were moving to Amazon's cloud, or Microsoft's, or Google's, in a trend that's only accelerated in the years since. And the mo...

Recycling the world’s plastic garbage could buy you the NFL, Apple and Microsoft

This year, I served on the judging panel for The Royal Statistical Society’s International Statistic of the Year. On Dec. 18, we announced the winner: 90.5 percent, the amount of plastic that has never been recycled. Okay – but why is that such a big deal? Much like Oxford English Dictionary’s “Word of the Year” competition, the international statistic is meant to capture the zeitgeist of this year.
