The IT Worker Telecommuting

Somehow or another in spite of my best efforts to escape computer-speak when I'm not actively at work :-) it seems that even my personal "life" is laced with computer and IT geeks.  Of course, as I've blogged about previously, I don't really try to separate my "life" into a "work-life" and...

Beware of the “By the Way”,s

Posted by: SJC

They often start with the statement "By the Way...", or another flavor is the "While you're here...", or maybe the "I was thinking..." flavor -- they are in a class of communication sometimes laced with peril, sometimes opportunity, and sometimes just a lot of work -- but ALWAYS revealing!  In my...

My subject for this post - Reporting! (Perhaps you guessed! :-) ) A few days ago I posted about "Green IT" and reporting methods and considerations to utilize less "paper".  My post today regarding reporting is simply this -- I posit that it is reporting which provides the greatest value of any...

Perhaps the phrase "Green IT" and various variations of same is over-used, however I suspect that its prevalence does cause us to think "green", even if we're sick of doing so.  When I chose "Application Design for Green Reporting" perhaps you wondered why I might have chosen such a title.  Good...

Here we are at the start of a New Year and by all accounts and most crystal balls we can look forward to another year of challenges. Actually though, it may not be a year much different than any other in that there are always challenges with IT technology.  We have much to look forward to -- I...

The “Paperless” Office — Myth or Real Possibility?

Green IT, IT Management, paperless office

Let's face it -- paper is not going away!  The "Paperless" office is a myth!  However, what is a real possibility is the office with "less paper" -- and there are many indications that it is happening.  I just can't imagine a time when managers that I've worked with will not want their "hard...

I figure I might as well join the ranks of the forecasters for the upcoming year -- heck, what good is a New Year if not to look ahead at what might be?  My 2009 crystal ball is multi-colored and multi-dimensional, pointing to the need for IT talent with a wide range of skills.  Given the...

To this day (...and possibly forever) I remember August 1, 1999 not with fond memories, but rather with a complex set of emotions which begin a churning upset in my stomach.  The day was, without a doubt, one of the most memorable days of my life for its stress level.  It was the perfect example...

Power and Dollar Savings for IT

Green IT -- the very name for me conjurs up images of a lush field in Vermont on a sunny day -- the air is clear and clean -- just a beautiful sight!  Then from there my images go to the "long green" currencies which I've had in my hand, and surely the saving of the "long green" speaks loud and...
