eNewsletter January 2010

Welcome 2010! 

We, like you, recently turned our calendar pages to a new year, a new beginning, a new opportunity for growth and success.  In that spirit, this month we highlight the inspirational What Matters Now, a feel-good collection of vignettes for the thinking business person. 
In an interview with Peter Jennings, Bill Gates once said, "My success, part of it certainly, is that I have focused in on a few things."  Gates's words remind us that we must decide precisely what matters, define our objectives narrowly, focus on what can help us achieve them, and become masters of our trade.
What "few things" will you emphasize this year?  What matters most to you in 2010?  How will your company surpass its growth, productivity, and learn from 2009? You undoubtedly have a plan of action.  Please remember to contact us when we can play a part.

This Top Ten List is for you.  It is the perfect marriage of business and pleasure, of profit and play, of ROI and LOL.  Sounds good; doesn't it?

Looking Up
Lay-offs.  Hiring freezes.  Forced Furloughs.  Pay cuts.  Any CFO or Controller can tell you what was definitive about the past year.  And we all know it wasn't good news.  But optimism for the future, despite what unemployment numbers now reveal, is the overwhelming feeling among prognosticators and polled CFOs around the world.  Why?  What signs reveal that the tide is, in fact, turning?  And will an almost bullish stock market loosen company purse strings?  Can we count on more jobs in the new year?

Virtualization for Dummies
VirtualizationVirtualization is the latest in a long line of technical innovations designed to increase the level of system abstraction and enable IT users to harness ever-increasing levels of computer performance.

At its simplest level, virtualization allows you, virtually and cost-effectively, to have two or more computers, running two or more completely different environments, on one piece of hardware. For example, with virtualization, you can have both a Linux machine and a Windows machine on one system.  Alternatively, you could host a Windows 95 desktop and a Windows XP desktop on one workstation.
