#BatmanvSuperman #WhoWillWin Now We Know - It's @Warnerbros_SA and @TimesMediaFilms

Hi Guys, 

Warner Bros. Pictures’ action adventure Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice took the South African box office by storm on its opening weekend, earning more than R16 million from 137 screens in South Africa, with no signs of slowing down. This makes Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice the biggest Warner Bros. opening of all time in South Africa, the biggest March opener of all time and the second biggest 3-day opening weekend (Fri – Sun) behind Fast & Furious 7. 

Opening virtually day-and-date across the globe, director Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated follow-up to Man of Steel brings Batman and Superman together on the big screen for the first time in history, and is the very first feature film appearance of Wonder Woman, the third Super Hero in DC Comics’ iconic Trinity. 

Sue Dickinson, Warner Bros. Marketing Manager at Times Media Films said, “Anticipation forBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been building across South Africa and these incredible results are a testament to not only the enduring appeal of these global icons but the power of the epic cinematic showdown Zack Snyder and his brilliant cast and crew have delivered. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the film’s incredible debut and strong word-of-mouth and repeat business promises to propel its success well into the season.”

From director Zack Snyder comes Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, starring Oscar winner Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) as Superman/Clark Kent in the characters’ first big-screen pairing.
DC Comics’ iconic Trinity #BatmanvSuperman #thelifesway
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with each other, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it has ever known before.

Directed by Zack Snyder, the film also stars Oscar nominees Amy Adams (American Hustle) as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane (Unfaithful) as Martha Kent, and Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got to Do with It) as Perry White; Oscar winners Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune) as Alfred, and Holly Hunter (The Piano) as Senator Finch; and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.

Snyder directed from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, with Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and David S. Goyer serving as executive producers.

Snyder’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Larry Fong (300, Watchmen) and production designer Patrick Tatopoulos (300: Rise of an Empire), and from hisMan of Steel team, editor David Brenner, costume designer Michael Wilkinson, visual effects supervisor John DJ DesJardin, and Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer (The Lion King) working in conjunction with composer Junkie XL (Mad Max: Fury Road).

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, a Zack Snyder film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film can be seen in IMAX, Dolby Cinema, 3D and 2D, and is being distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The film is sub-distributed by Times Media Films in South Africa. Check out batmanvsupermandawnofjustice.net and I can say for sure that it's neither Batman nor Superman who is the winner, it's the audience who has won by showering their love on all of DC Comics characters and have opened their hearts to Wonder Woman too!

3-D Modeclix Range At @Bokehfff @MercedesBenz_SA 21 April #CapeTown

Hi Guys, 

Attendants to the annual Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South African International Fashion Film Festival will not only be experiencing a fabulously fashionable event including, awards, film screenings and workshops but they will also be privy to an exclusive unveiling of a revolutionary 3-D printed clothing range from Modeclix. 

The dresses are created by Dr Shaun Borstrock from the University of Herfordshire in the UK in collaboration with Prof Mark Bloomfield from Electroboom and for the first time offer a wearable 3-D printed clothing range. The Modeclix collection, featuring eight dresses and two headpieces, is a major breakthrough in 3-D printing and garment technology. Previous 3-D printed clothes were very structured and rigid this new range from Modeclix is uniquely customizable and flexible, mimicking the movement and drape of fabric.
3-D Modeclix Range At @Bokehfff @MercedesBenz_SA 21 April #CapeTown
'Previous 3D printed designs have been mostly conceptual pieces that are solid, with little or no movement. We have strived to create stylish 3D printed garments that have sufficient movement to ensure they are fluid, eye-catching and comfortable to wear. These prototypes are made, dyed and finished by hand and our aim now is to produce them for a wider market,' says Dr Borstrock.

Mark Bloomfield, Managing Director of electrobloom commented, 'I’ve spent the last 25 years exploring how technology and 3D printing can enhance production techniques for jewellery and accessories, and this has been a fantastic opportunity to take this research even further. There is a huge amount of potential to develop complex construction techniques that defy traditional pattern cutting and create garments that are multi-functional, unique and wearable.'
3-D Modeclix Range At @Bokehfff @MercedesBenz_SA 21 April #CapeTown
Festival Director, Adrian Lazarus was elated, “It’s fitting that these “cutting edge” designs at the forefront of fashion, are revealed at the Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South African International Fashion Film Festival, as we strive to promote and award dynamic and awe inspiring designers and film makers.” With the theme of “bespoke” this year the unveiling of the Modeclix garments could not have a better platform. The Modeclix range will be revealed on the April 21st at the Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South Africa International Fashion Film Festival held at the V&A Waterfront.

The collection will be available to view online from 1 May 2016 at digitalhacklab.herts.ac.uk and modeclix.com. It will also be available to view in store from 23 May 2016 at electrobloom in London. Looking forward to the same when the event comes to Johannesburg.

@SamsungSA Launching People #MixedTalents Campaign #Entrepreneurs

Hi Guys, 

Technology has the power to push people forward and spark innovation. More than that, technology has the power to unite people, fostering an environment to create solutions that are not only innovative in functionality, but also serve important social purposes. It is through such mediums that start-ups can find differentiation, become impactful and are grown sustain-ably

These are the thoughts of Michelle Potgieter, Director of Corporate Marketing and Communications at Samsung SA, who said “platforms which spark conversation are critical for the mixing of ideas and talents which ultimately lead to innovation.” Adding further she said, “Once you have innovation and technology contributing to business growth, especially in emerging markets such as our own, entrepreneurs have a greater chance of operating in these tough environments.”

South Africa has one of the highest unemployment rates globally, which is continuing to rise, according to the recently released Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS)**. From the survey results, the national unemployment rate in the second quarter of 2015 was 25.5%. The figure is especially high amongst the youth, currently standing at 36%. 
Samsungs_Michelle_Portgieter_with_MC_Andile_Khumalo #thelifesway
Based on these insights, Samsung identified an opportunity to create a technological platform that would serve to tackle and alleviate unemployment. This innovative offering was created in the form of a web-based tool that could look to change the makeup of how our economic structure, by offering entrepreneurs a mouthpiece to voice their ideas. 

Samsung approached Carol Koffman, a senior manager at Deloitte, and Jonathan Liebmann, the entrepreneur behind the rejuvenation of the Maboneng precinct, with the offer of being campaign experts that would engage with and mentor millennial business owners. 

In order to structure their approach, Carol and Jonathan conducted workshops, where groups of educated, unemployed young South Africans were asked about their opinions on the topic of unemployment. These workshop discussions allowed the millennials to share frustrations around starting their own business and the lack of opportunities and resources available to them.

Carol Koffman - Launching People - #thelifesway
Over a series of 8 workshops, Carol and Jonathan collaborated to find possible ways to address the issue of unemployment among South African youth. These workshops were published on Samsung’s various digital media platforms to increase awareness of the project. 

“We had to start somewhere as the problem is so big. It became clear that the youth we need to target are the ones that are leaving school at a tertiary level and are entering urban areas,” said Koffman. 

The final solution developed and revealed by Carol and Jonathan is a resource hub for entrepreneurs, essentially functioning as a “one-stop shop” for any and all requirements entrepreneurs would have. These include advice and direction on areas such as proposal writing, CV development, ideas-pitching to business, collaborations on new ideas, mentoring and coaching, on-the-job experience and access to funding, among many other areas of need. 

The hub is powered by an innovative Ideas Bank, which filters and vets entrepreneurial ideas according to type, industry, nature of impact and others, and then channels and matches these to the right business partner, coach, funder or business collaborations. 

It is therefore a truly collaborative, dynamic and open source, owned by the contributors and entrepreneurs themselves. Moreover, because it is on an integrated platform, the data that will be extracted will assist in influencing policy makers and leaders in entrepreneurial development.
Jonathan Liebmann - Launching People - #thelifesway
In order to implement the “Ideas Bank” and eventually expand on the concept, Carol and Jonathan, with the support of Samsung, partnered with METIME, an online start-up company that specialises in creating employment opportunities. Their values and vision were perfectly aligned with Launching People’s key focus of alleviating the unemployment crisis in South Africa.

Although the full METIME solution will only roll out in June 2016, the BETA phase was successfully launched in February 2016. A group of millennials were chosen to submit their ideas that were vetted by a panel of experts, including our expert pair. Three applicants were selected, each receiving R50 000 in start-up capital and mentorship support to help kick-start their business dreams. 

“The team at Samsung is very proud of this initiative, as we see the development of our youth as a critical component to the future success of this country. We encourage all millennials with bright ideas to come forward and use the platform. South Africans are naturally innovative and are leaders in entrepreneurial initiatives – we as corporates need to develop and nurture these talents,” concluded Potgieter.

For more information on the campaign visit: www.launchingpeople.co.za and follow #MixedTalents on Twitter

*Samsung commissioned Masutane Consulting Services to conduct online research into over 300 young South Africans from ages 18 – 35 to gauge their perceptions on a range of issues. The research was entitled “Project Youth Debrief”.

**The QLFS was released by Statistics South Africa for the second quarter of 2015.

The Future of Television @LGSouthAfrica #OLED

Hi Guys, 

Television is evolving right alongside tablets and smartphones. The innovative televisions of today are built with connectivity at their heart. These TVs are tapping into the endless possibilities offered by the ‘Internet of Things’, by converging all of your technologies into one place. Smart TVs allow you to access the internet and smartphone from the comfort of your own couch.

Similar to Moore’s law is Kurzweil’s Law of Accelerating Returns, which states that the capabilities of technology accelerate exponentially. The law can be clearly observed in the evolution of TV technology. TV in the 1970s was almost identical to TV in the 1950s, differentiated only by the presence of colour. Likewise, TV in the 1990s closely mirrored TV in the 1970s, being primarily distinguished by the addition of VCRs, cable, and video gaming systems as common accessories.

Looking at the slow lurch of technological progress in the latter half of the 20th century, and it is apparent that the pace of change has been dwarfed by the improvements made in the past 15 years alone. The catalyst for these changes began once manufacturers were no longer shackled by the limitations of cathode ray tubes. No longer reliant on bulky tubes, the capabilities of TVs began to grow exponentially. Picture quality drastically improved, screens grew in size and production became more cost-efficient. For the first time, TVs were able to offer with more colors, smaller bezels, and thinner casings.

It’s hard to imagine where television can go from here, but it’s clear that manufacturers are continuing to push the boundaries of what’s possible. LG Electronics, market leaders in consumer electronics unveiled a paper thin OLED television prototype that can be rolled up. Just as cathode ray tubes represented the turning point in television design, the unrivalled picture quality of OLED represents a similar turning point for TV innovation. OLED may prove to be the spark which causes TV technology to explode at an ever increasing rate.

OLED’s superior picture quality and flexibility make it the perfect display format for the next generation of smart devices. From form-fitting wearables and rollable TVs to smart automotive displays and bending mobile phones, OLED technology has the potential to turn sci-fi concepts into reality. The technology that powers OLED continues to improve with each passing day, meaning that the OLED era is even closer than you think.

2016 is set to be a banner year for OLED technology. A strong showing at CES 2016 allowed OLED to establish itself as the leading format for the next generation of televisions. LG’s OLED line won recognition at CES and found its way on to many best-in-show lists. Fortune stated that OLED “has been the best of the best in the television world for the past few years – and it’s not slowing down this year.

This rise in quality of television content has ushered in what critics have called, “The Golden Age of Television”. Critically-acclaimed shows like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad have convinced viewers across the world that what’s on in their living room is just as exciting as whatever’s showing at the theatre.

Who needs to visit the cinema when today’s Ultra HD TVs and OLEDs can offer comparable levels of quality? Why bother owning a separate stereo system when sound bars take up so much less space and sound just as good? The times are coming where your every breathe will achieve the state of Entertainment Nirvana!

Disney’s Animal Adventures Promotion #March #DisneyAfrica

Hi Guys, 

Adventures with animal heroes have been the theme of many Disney movies over the years and have been enjoyed by multiple generations. This March, just in time for the school holidays, Disney is celebrating their very latest and greatest animal-themed titles!

Zootropolis
The celebrations kick off with the release of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 55th animated feature,Zootropolis in cinemas from 4 March in 3D. Zootropolis is a modern mammal metropolis, a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Shakira features as superstar Gazelle with a brand new song, and here’s the latest trailer.


The Good Dinosaur
Disney•Pixar’s prehistoric family hit, The Good Dinosaur, will be available on DVD and Blu-ray from 28 March at retailers nationwide.The Good Dinosaur asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of. Be sure to stock up on the latest toys, books and stationery, as well as the DVD from The Good Dinosaur, as part of the Animal Adventures promotion.

Animal Adventures Retail Promotion
Until the end of March, Disney will be bringing together some of their greatest classic and contemporary animal-themed titles on DVD and Blu-ray into leading retailers nationwide. For a limited time at exclusive special prices, there has never been a better opportunity to share old memories and experience new ones with the whole family. Whether it’s the crazy miniature live-action antics of Beverly Hills Chihuahua or the Buddies series, to heart-warming classic titles such as101 Dalmatians, Lady & the Tramp, The Jungle Book and The Fox and the Hound – there is ample opportunity to be entertained together with the whole family. In addition, the perennial favourite, The Lion King, together with its sequels The Lion King 2 and The Lion King 3 will be available as part of the promotion!

The Lion Guard
The Lion Guard begins as Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, assumes the role of leader of the Lion Guard, a group of the bravest and brightest tasked with preserving the Pride Lands. Instead of assembling a team of young lions to serve with him, Kion challenges tradition by calling upon friends he believes are the best choices – Bunga, a fearless honey badger; Fuli, a confident cheetah; Beshte, a happy-go-lucky hippo; and Ono, an intellectual egret. Stories will include special appearances by Mufasa, Timon, Pumbaa, Rafiki, Zazu and Kion's older sister, Kiara, the future Queen of the Pride Lands.

Catch the The Lion Guard series weekdays at 18:30 from 18 April, only on Disney Junior (DStv, Channel 309). In addition, NUK has brought out a brand new range of The Lion Guard products for infants. Disney’s Animal Adventures promotion runs for the whole of March in leading retailers nationwide.

To project a 100-inch picture, conventional projectors usually need to be positioned three to four meters from the screen or wall. This not only presents a problem for small living rooms, the power cord running from the projector to the outlet is unsightly and a safety hazard. What’s more, conventional projectors create a “no walk zone” in a large part of the living room between the projector and the screen. The LG Minibeam suffers from none of these limitations as a 100-inch display can be projected from a distance of only 38cm from the wall. This is only limited to the PF1000U

PW800G – 800 Lumens
PF1500G – 1400 Lumens

With built-in speakers, the LG MiniBeam provides crisp sound. The device is so versatile that you can also plug it into conventional speakers. It's not just portable, but stylish too.

@MicrosoftSA @Uber_RSA Created Unique Travel and Win Opportunity #WhoWillWin

Hi Guys, 

Microsoft Lumia and Uber broke a unique partnership to celebrate the release of new blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The cinema event of the year sees two of the greatest comic book heroes, namely Superman and Batman, going toe to toe in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Microsoft South Africa has partnered with Uber and Warner Bros. Pictures to provide fans with a cinematic experience to match the phenomenal stature of this titanic clash. 

“Fifty lucky people in both Cape Town and Johannesburg got to attend the preview of this 3D blockbuster on Wednesday 23 March with a friend,” says Michelle Wyne, Microsoft Marketing Manager for Mobile Devices. “Like Bruce Wayne, they will get the red carpet treatment, kicking off with ride in style in an UberBLACK.”

This chauffeured ride took them straight to the preview venue, where they were able to step into the shoes of Clark Kent by chronicling some of their favourite moments in the photo booth for possible inclusion in the social pages of the Daily Planet. Attendees also won some instant prizes in the Microsoft Lumia zone and set the stage for the evening’s main event by challenging their friends at the Xbox Station.
Batman v SuperMan Dawn of Justice #WhoWillWin #thelifesway

Pick your path to greatness: Gotham City or Metropolis
People entered the same by opening the Uber app and entering the code LumiaBATMAN or LumiaSUPERMAN in the Promotions tab. Once done and when they Re-opened the app after 30 minutes you will see a fourth tab as your unique Super Hero view pops up. 

“We are so excited to join forces with Microsoft Lumia and Warner Bros. Pictures to give riders the chance to attend the exclusive preview of the epic show down of Batman v Superman. Thank you to our partners for this opportunity, we are always looking for new ways to enhance the Uber experience”, says Alon Lits, General Manager Sub-Saharan Africa Uber.

This sweepstakes promotion was open to both new and existing Uber users who took a ride in Cape Town and Johannesburg. The 50 winners in each city were selected at random.

“Warner Bros. Pictures is delighted to partner with both Microsoft Lumia and Uber on the highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice release. Our partners have come up with an innovative and very trendy campaign which suits the film perfectly, and consumers will love every interaction from catching a personalised Batman or Superman Uber ride to the activation to seeing the film before it releases nationwide,” says Sue Dickinson, Marketing Manager: Warner Bros Pictures South Africa.

From director Zack Snyder (“Man of Steel”) comes “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” starring Oscar winner Ben Affleck (“Argo”) as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill (“Man of Steel,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”) as Superman/Clark Kent in the characters’ first big-screen pairing. Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day saviour, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is being releases by Times Media Films and released on cinemas nationwide on 24 March 2016.

Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.

The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong'o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.

@SamsungSA #2016 Predictions See The #IoT and #Mobility Connect and Serve

Hi Guys,

Connectivity and user experiences driven by the Internet of Things (IoT) and mobility – the key trends to keep an eye on for Samsung Electronics South Africa in 2016. Organisations that are prepared to utilise technologies that leverage relationships and engagement are well placed to remain competitive in a challenging economy. The Business-to-Business (B2B) market is in a strong position to evolve alongside the changing demands of clients and provide the applications they will need to succeed.

“Mobile device penetration continues to rise and solutions that are capable of enhancing the mobile experience will be successful,” says Mike van Lier: Director of Enterprise Business Division (EBD) at Samsung South Africa. “The IoT has become more than just a phrase, it is now a way of doing business. The reliance on connectivity has increased year-on-year and this trend is likely to continue this year.”

It is important to note that, IoT is not just for the smartphone and tablet. Any smart technology, which includes white goods and printers, can be tailored and transformed to provide integrated data – making life easier for both businesses and consumers.1According to statistics, more than 50 billion appliances globally will be connected to the internet by 2020 with an economic value of nearly $US 2 billion. Africa has already adopted the technology with a total of 128 million people, 52% of the global market, connected to one another in the mobile and machine to machine spaces (M2M).
IoT Internet of Things

“A study by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers’ states, 57% of South Africa’s internet traffic comes from mobile devices. This ranks the country higher than many other developing countries on the mobile traffic scale. The smartphone population penetration is around 47% with 23 million active smartphone users2,” adds van Lier. “As a result, both retail and enterprise are in a unique position to take advantage of the technology and embrace deeper development and engagement.”

The connected retail space isn’t new, but the futuristic view is rapidly becoming a daily reality. As an example, consumers in Japan are already talking to lifelike robots instead of shop assistants. In South Africa, e-commerce is improving in both functionality and adoption – which offers an opportunity for businesses to improve their engagement with consumers. Nevertheless, foot traffic remains alive and well and this means that retailers must still invest in signage and messaging that is relevant and visible.

“Retailers need to merge the physical and digital to create inspirational and relevant shopping spaces,” says van Lier. “Consumers don’t just buy anymore; they want to experience and engage with a brand and product.

Samsung has invested in innovations that deliver targeted advertising solutions that form a part of every touchpoint in the shopping experience. Virtual fitting rooms, mirror displays and mall signage are all great ways of capturing consumers’ attention in a cluttered environment.”

Of course, connectivity is as important within the enterprise space and this year is likely to herald a shift in innovation and development. Office infrastructures are evolving to support the mobile employee and wireless technology is core to this process. IoT allows for the operational integration of connected devices to the right technology in order to allow communication to be effective.

“Truly efficient business settings depend on a reliable and fast network to meet the expanding demand for bandwidth,” says van Lier. “In order to support IoT and enterprise mobility, solutions such as Samsung’s WLAN platform assure improved end-user experiences with faster connectivity.”

Finally, the tedious processes of the past are about to be replaced by connected devices printing directly from anywhere and on any platform. “Cloud printing is just one of the ways in which offices will become smarter and more convenient,” concludes van Lier. “The applications are endless and the potential for streamlining business processes, improving productivity and saving on costs is already proven. IoT is here, what the organisation needs to do now is reevaluate the way it has been doing business. Trends contributing to a connected world are real and to stand out they have to implement solutions that map back to their strategic goals for long term success.”
