Computerworld    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If you're CIO at a large enterprise — or a small one, for that matter — chances are good that you're seeing a steady rise in the number of employees using smartphones and tablets at work. The upside of this trend is that people might be more productive if they're using mobile devices they're comfortable with to access corporate data, collaborate with colleagues and communicate with customers.

Accounting Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When asked about whether or not they have an anti-fraud hotline in place, many executives respond, "We don't need an anti-fraud hotline; I know what goes on in my company."

Let's boldly embrace emerging markets
The Globe and Mail    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Geography may well be our destiny, but it's time for Canada to chart a bolder, more global vision — one that's more in tune with the dynamic transformation in the global economy. It will oblige the country to rise beyond the desire for a "special relationship" with the United States, in which affection or annoyance can overwhelm reason, and adopt a more confident and more balanced global role, defending our extensive interests with the U.S. while pursuing more promising opportunities in many emerging markets.

Water and energy: You could soon pay more, or use less
AOL Energy    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Commodity derivatives trading in water? It's not as far-fetched as it sounds, and it may become part of the energy business soon.

Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

"We're seeing an absolutely stunning increase in this form of retaliation," said ERC President Patricia Harned. "And we're not entirely sure why. It could be physical harm to a person, it could be damage to a work equipment, damage to their personal property, damage to their car. But no matter how you look at it, it's a remarkable jump — and it says something pretty upsetting about where the needle has moved in corporate culture." More

With the cloud transition well underway, focus has turned to securing end-user devices like smartphones and tablet computers, and in particular, the use of employee-owned devices for business purposes. For many companies permitting BYOD, data security concerns generally focus around loss or theft of intellectual property and trade secrets.
