    Women in tech - thank you.

    Here’s a few women from history that I’d to honor, because in a lot of ways they contributed to myself being where I am today – a woman in technology.

If you haven’t heard of the book, go get it and learn something. It’s a good...

In a world where our reliance on smartphones dictates our daily lives and diminishes our interest in books, many of us are averse to reading more than one short paragraph. We submerse ourselves in 140 character Tweets (now 280!), or in a realm of social media channels full of videos...

    Ladies, this is why you have to be the next “IT girls”!

    When I started my career more than 10 years ago, I have never thought I would have gained so many different experiences in diverse areas in such a short period of time. These experiences have given me the opportunity to share with the new generation of "IT girls" that they have today, even more than yesterday, and it’s theirs for the taking. Personally, it was a professional meeting that changed my destiny...

    Mistakes are our friends… and a lot of fun

    Mistakes happen – whether they’re made on purpose or by pure accident. No matter the reason, we can all agree mistakes happen. While some environments repeatedly tell you that mistakes are bad, sometimes mistakes can be fun. Mistakes like outtakes and bloopers can be very amusing and even make us laugh so hard we cry or pee our pants just a tiny bit. Recently, our intrepid marketing leader, Darin Bartik...

    Communication is key – to our channel and our success

    Throughout my professional career in the IT industry, I’ve always been closely linked to channel. From day one it made sense to me – channel partners are an extension arm of a company, representing us and our products to a wider audience – so we, in turn, must treat them like fellow colleagues. Communication is crucial within a business to drive motivation and success, so the same principle should...
