Making your New Year resolutions work perfectly!

newyearreso

As you gear up for 2016, its a great choice for making a plan towards your professional growth.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has a clear vision for the culture he wants to create in order to achieve our company wide mission, and it centers around the idea of a growth mindset.

These leaders suggest making time to learn new things, focusing on how you interact with others, not creating a laundry list of goals for yourself and more. Two advise the opposite of what you might expect regarding the all-important topic of chocolate.

As an organization focusing heavily on growth and transformation, we’re constantly striving to set goals – and the New Year provides the perfect opportunity to make a plan for finding professional growth. According to a study from John Norcross of the University of Scranton, a New Year’s resolution has ten times more stick-to-it power than a promise made any other time of the year.

But even so, achieving change and growth can still be a challenge. The Washington Post reports that up to half of us will make New Year’s resolutions this year, but only half of those who do will succeed at keeping them for at least six months.

Gartner says 50% Of CRM Will Be Deployed As SaaS in the end of 2015.

CIOs Must Take Action to Address Fast-Approaching Reality of cloud deployment

Microsoft and other technology titans have been nudging their customers to the cloud for quite some time.  Along with a record number of organizations adopting cloud solutions within the Microsoft Dynamics community, competitive solutions are now selling ‘cloud-first’ in many cases.  The world is going to the cloud and the adoption trend isn’t slowing.

Gartner predicts that by 2018, at least 30 percent of service-centric companies will move the majority of their ERP applications to the cloud.

And so is the case of CRM.

The tipping point of on-premise versus SaaS-based CRM deployments arrived this year. Gartner’s finding says that 35% of all CRM implementations are now cloud (SaaS) based and anticipates “that SaaS deployments of CRM will grow to over 50% by 2020 will reach a maximum 80% to 85% by 2025″.

Gartner projects “the CRM software market is projected to grow at a 14.8% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2017, with cloud revenue growing at more than 22.6% CAGR”.
