Customer relationship management (CRM) is an essential part of the modern organization, in order to effectively connect with each customer. CRM improves business processes, profitability, and reduces overall cost. CRM enables organizations to gain complete control over each customer relationship individually, and inform employees to take better and strategic decisions for sales, marketing, and customer support functions.

I often say that finding technology solutions for business practices often comes down to applying technology to make existing business processes faster, easier, and more accurate.  A common question clients ask is how they can use a Customer Relationship Management solution to better communicate with their customers and find new ways to market to their client-base.  But when choosing such a CRM solution, there are dozens of available options, from Microsoft CRM to Sugar CRM.

The pull towards mediocrity is too strong. As David Schwartz once penned, “All around you is an environment that is trying to pull you down to Second-Class Street.”

Cloud Computing uses the Internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications. It allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access personal files at any computer connected to the Internet. Centralizing storage, memory, processing, and bandwidth results in far more efficient computing.

After performing countless assessments of business operations, I have become very sensitive to the inefficient processes that can be improved with better organization or automation.While most businesses are oblivious to these minor inefficiencies that only waste a few seconds each time they are performed, I cringe when I think about how many work hours are lost over the course of a year.

Software and hardware that’s available for use over the Internet is a cloud computing. They are available on demand just like electricity that’s accessed from the grid.

Emerging technologies like software – as – a – service (SaaS) and cloud computing introduced the whole new dimension of business related software technologies, like open source CRM, mobile CRM, social CRM and cloud based CRM. Still there are doubts and strong debates about which CRM you should implement in your organization cloud or on – premises and which CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system is the right choice for your organization?

The way people use technology to better their lives is changing.  While only a decade ago it was common for us to have just a desktop computer and maybe a laptop, we now use multiple devices to work more efficiently, enjoy more entertainment, and connect with each other on a day-to-day basis.  Today, it’s not uncommon for a user to have a desktop computer, a smart phone, a laptop, and even a tablet device.

individuals who are set against humanity and their own humanness, often to the point of taking their own life after taking the lives of others, beings who are physically alive, but emotionally, socially, and morally dead—zombies.
The title character of The Stranger is Meursault, a man out of harmony with the society in which he lives, a person for whom there is no rational order to the universe, no transcendent pegs for ultimate significance, and no fixed standards for human conduct; life is merely the sum-total of his autonomous actions, the moment-to-moment procession of sensory inputs.
The extent of his “inhumanity” is revealed at his execution when he wishes only for “a large crowd of spectators … [to] greet me with howls of hate.”
Importantly, Meursault’s crime was not the result of mental illness or “going postal,” but of a faulty worldview. Once he accepted the cosmos as uncaring and unsupervised, he was destined to conclude that fellow-creature sentiments were absurd, and that any action, even the choice to kill or not kill, was bereft of moral value—beliefs that would transmogrify him.
The Chicago townhouse murders marked the rise of what NY Times columnist David Brooks calls, the “spectacular rampage murder.” According to Brooks, from 1913 to around 1970, there were no more than two of these types of murders per decade. After that, the number of incidences shot up to nine in the 1980s, eleven in the 1990s and, as tallied by the FBI, 160 between 2000 and 2013.
The rise in such killings could not happen without the rise of a certain type of individual: a socially isolated person whom, psychotherapist Dr. Paul Hannig describes, “can’t feel the normal range of human emotions” and has lost “all sense of normal morality and impulse control”—a zombie.
All human problems and challenges, such as climate change, gun violence, and even terrorism, are problems that can be solved if only we apply the right techniques, which these days are almost always political steps: i.e., passing the right laws or public policies.
The sad reality is that even if progressive technocrats succeeded in confiscating all firearms and ammunition in the country, it wouldn’t deter the counter-human from unleashing his inhumanity on society with explosives, chemicals, biotoxins, knives, and vehicles (all, of which, he has used).
We are alone in an indifferent universe with nothing to give meaning to our existence but the sum-total of our personal experiences. And, for the restless soul chasing after the “meaningful” experience, a pop psychology is ready to light the way.
Is it any wonder that when these pile up on individuals conditioned to believe that personal happiness is the summum bonum of life, some become “social misfits” and others “angry loners”? And a few, a very few, take out their frustrations in an inhuman way; perhaps, like one of the walking dead?
