Project management best practices remind us that if we successfully initiate, plan, execute and close out all our projects, our metrics will illustrate greater results. While such a statement highlights the end goal, there’s much more to project management than simple methodology.
Big data has always been a mean to grow business. With automated systems serving your customers, tracking and analyzing how they use your software can play a huge role in serving your customers more effectively. However multiple problems may stand in your way when organizing and running queries on such large quantities of data. Getting quality results fast enough to act on can be difficult, even on the newest computers. The solution, proponents and analysts say, is In-Memory Computing.
Parthenon Software Group is a data-oriented custom software company. In layman's terms, this means that we write software you can't get off the shelf. For any industry custom software involves storing, retrieving, and transforming data and/or moving it between other programs or computers. This is not a niche industry. Many businesses need this kind of software, and it's not usually the easiest thing to do. We are uniquely suited to do this because we are composed of top programmers who are data-oriented generalists.
Social media has become a major part of the world as we know it. Some people can’t even go a few minutes without “checking in”, tweeting, etc. While this can get a little annoying, social media is a powerful tool for social interaction. As mentioned in our Client Interaction blog, social media can help with gaining and maintaining your clients. This particular trait is targeted by one of the newest sales & marketing tools, the Social CRM.
Project management is an important part of any company, regardless of the type, source or outcome. There's a lot to do, and time is always limited. Any project is a short-term action that has a timeframe and seldom lasts for longer than two years. It stands to reason that project managers must make the most of what have to work with. If you look at it in terms of sports, the role of a project manager is very much like that of a soccer coach. They are given a team to shape into an effective force with rules to follow and limited resources. Everyone would like a dream team, but the best coach is one who can make champions.
