e2b teknologies: Tech turns A/R to cash faster

Brad Nellis |

We spent some time recently with the folks at e2b teknologies talking about improving A/R cycle times.

Brad Nellis |

Growing the tech talent base, enhancing R&D tax treatments, and better connectedness with legislators lead the list of interests of tech leaders in Cleveland and Cincinnati.

In a joint survey with The Circuit, Cincinnati’s IT association, we asked tech leaders in our respective regions, CIOs and entrepreneurs, to share their thoughts on different issues affecting the industry.  The Ohio Tech Leaders:  2015 Tech Issues Report offers insight into that survey.

We also asked for their general impression on the state’s support for the industry.  But more on that in a minute.

Patrick Antos |

There’s been a lot of talk about how to attract and retain millenials in 2015 and frankly, that conversation won’t be ending anytime soon. By 2025, they will make up 75% of the workforce…which means it’s time to take a look in the mirror at your organization and ask yourself if you are ready to attract millenial talent.

Can The CLE Really Be A Tech Career Destination?

Brad Nellis |

Our region really has a lot going for it:  great cost of living, beautiful surroundings, amazing museums, (mostly) professional sports teams and more.

And in the tech world here, we’ve got a really vibrant entrepreneurial community, from start-ups to mature coupled with a significant number of large, enterprise IT shops.

So why do we struggle to get people here?  And how can we compete with other markets (that we KNOW we’re better than!)?

Tech in the CLE: Inspiring Growth Trajectory

Brad Nellis |

Manufacturing is ok, I suppose: bending metal, making stuff, big and loud machinery, etc. And healthcare is not bad either: quality of life, longevity, social impact and more. But give me technology: mobile devices, software that gets rockets to Mars and beyond, websites serving up drones, pizza, Browns tickets, etc. and on and on.

Windows 10 from Microsoft is Here

Bob Coppedge |

Windows 10 from Microsoft is here.  It’s getting a fair amount of positive buzz (add or subtract the obligatory Microsoft love/hate, of course).

Oddly enough much of the buzz has been generated by the nature of the upgrade as much as the OS itself.  And that information has led to as much confusion as the product itself.
