Ventana Research Unveils 2018 Research Agenda for Business and Technology Markets

Veteran market research firm focused on applications and digital technology for business and IT releases comprehensive research agenda

BEND, OR, January 31, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Ventana Research, the leading business technology research and advisory services firm, today unveiled a sharply focused and digitally innovative research agenda for 2018. This agenda, which continues the firm’s 15-year history of research and its extensive reach with both buyers and users of business technology, details the areas expertise the firm will focus on for 2018. The research detailed in this agenda will provide continued support to enable businesses to utilize their technology and resources efficiently and effectively and operate and perform well.

This 2018 research agenda reflects an innovative shift in the firm’s view of how and why business will need to embrace digital technologies at a brisk pace to remain effective in the market. The research focuses on a number of key digital technology innovations that are changing the way business operates: analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, blockchain, bots and natural language processing, digital collaboration, cybersecurity, the Internet of Things, and wearable computing. The research will assess the impacts of these technologies in finance, human resources, sales, marketing, customer service, operations, supply chain and IT functions in more than 20 industry categories.

Building on last year’s introduction of its newest research offering, Ventana Research in 2018 will launch more Ventana Research Dynamic Insights assessment surveys, along with new market research initiatives that will enable the firm to provide cutting-edge guidance on best practices and market trends. This innovative research helps guide buyers to prioritize their efforts and ensure they are able to reach their optimal outcomes.

This research agenda, produced annually, is designed to enable businesses to plan and gain insights from trends and best practices so they can retain and advance their competitive edge in 2018. It also highlights the unique experience- and research-based services Ventana Research provides and distinguishes them from the less rigorous offerings of other advisory or consulting firms. The firm provides some of the most authoritative guidance available on best practices to support informed technology choices, using a rigorous research methodology and experience gained from more than 15 years in the industry. Ventana Research has benchmarked tens of thousands of organizations, differentiating it from any other analyst firm in the industry. Its research and education is provided directly to a community of members worldwide.

„In 2018, businesses will see a major shift in the role technology plays in their organization,“ said Mark Smith, CEO and chief research officer of Ventana Research. „This is a year to focus on how emerging technologies can optimize business potential. Explosive growth in AI, machine learning, processes automation and natural language processing will create disruptive shifts in every line of business. To capitalize on these changes, companies will need to ensure they are relying on authoritative advice and best practices guidance that helps improve the people, processes, information and technology in their business – advice and guidance based on research from a firm that engages with them and their peers and measures how they achieve these tasks. IT-focused analyst firms that still operate in the dark ages of IT focus and technology categories lack the business context and digital effectiveness to effectively prioritize the application and digital technology investments that matter the most to organizations.

„A line-of-business focus such as ours enables us to offer the incisive guidance on digital innovation that is required to move beyond legacy approaches to focus on investments for the future,“ Smith said. „We are excited to again provide our comprehensive research agenda, an agenda that’s publicly available and built on research and our ongoing review of how applications and technologies actually work. We encourage any organization evaluating a research and advisory services firm to examine its agenda for relevance and importance before making any investment. New to our agenda in 2018 are research assertions that outline what we believe will be key market and organizational insights pulled from our independent research and decades of industry experience.“

Ventana Research is the only technology analyst firm that publicly posts its research agenda and framework for an entire year and provides free access to market research. Merely providing an analyst note or listing reports to be written does not constitute a useful research agenda; it merely announces the use of an approach not built on fact-based market research and full product evaluations. „Our market- and primary research-based approach and our focus on educating buyers in an efficient and digital manner more clearly than ever differentiates our firm from the array of others,“ Smith added.

For more information about the research agenda, please visit any of our expertise pages, Analytics, Customer Experience, Data, Digital Technology, Human Capital Management, Marketing, Office of Finance, Operations & Supply Chain, or Sales, and download the research agendas for business and technology areas most important to your needs now.

Ron Sturgeon Real Estate Ties Business Success and Growth to Offering Commercial Property for Rent for Small Businesses and Entrepreneurs

RDS Real Estate Specializes in Offering Small-Medium Size Commercial Properties for Rent Throughout Tarrant County

FORT WORTH, TX, January 31, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Why does Ron Sturgeon Real Estate specialize in small-to-medium sized industrial properties for lease? No really, think about it. Big corporations won’t lease out small properties, so why have over one-million square feet of small-to-medium properties available for rent throughout the DFW? It seems to be counter-intuitive in the real estate business.

RDS owner, Ron Sturgeon, explains:

„It’s not counter-intuitive at all if you look closely at the business landscape,“ Sturgeon explains. „One in four adults in the United States owns a home-based business. We are talking tens of millions of small businesses tucked into spare bedrooms, rec rooms, and garages. Now think about it, what happens to those home-based businesses when they are successful and outgrow their home surroundings? What will they need? They will need to rent an industrial space for lease, a retail shop, a warehouse for rent, a hobby shop or a garage. But remember, these are small businesses with small budgets. They can’t afford to rent a huge warehouse plus they have no need for 20,000 square feet of space. What they need is a small-to-medium size space where they have room for their current business, and they also have room to grow plus a space that fits into their budget. That’s where we come into the picture. We understand small businesses and what they need. We have flexible terms because, in the long run, if our tenants succeed, we succeed. It’s costly to have a property change hands often, so it makes sense for us to be flexible and work with our clients. Offering rent by owner options provides an opportunity for small businesses to really start succeeding.“

RDS also labels most, if not all, of their properties as multi-use properties. We asked Leasing Agent Jim Eaton about that.

„An industrial space for lease is just four walls. Who is to say whether it is a warehouse for rent for a manufacturing business, a hobby shop space for some guy who sells collector trains, or a garage for an electrician? The four walls become a business when the business owner moves in. It is his vision that transforms an empty space into a business entity. So we call our properties multi-use, because their specific use depends on the person leasing the property.“

To learn more about RDS Real Estate and all of their multi-use space for lease in Fort Worth and the surrounding areas, contact Jim Eaton at (817) 439-3224, jime@rdsinvestments.com, or visit RDSRealEstate.com.

Business North Carolina Lists Attorney Kris Hilscher Among 2018 Legal Elite

Younce, Vtipil & Baznik Attorney Hilscher Recognized in Family Law Practice Area

RALEIGH, NC, January 31, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Younce, Vtipil, & Baznik is pleased to announce that Business North Carolina magazine has named attorney Kristopher J. Hilscher to its 2018 Legal Elite.

Legal Elite is an exceptional distinction, with fewer than 3 percent of the state’s lawyers named to the list this year. Kris Hilscher was selected in the practice area of family law.

Legal Elite attorneys are selected through ballots sent to more than 20,000 attorneys who are active members of the North Carolina State Bar. Members of the Bar are asked to select the best lawyers in each field.

Kris provides counsel to those facing divorce, custody, alimony, equitable distribution, high net worth and business divisions, domestic violence, child support, and all related family law matters. Kris is a strong believer in a client-driven model where the guiding principle is to achieve the client’s reasonable legal objectives by following the golden rule – treating everyone as he would want to be treated.

In addition to the Legal Elite selection, Kris also has received a coveted AV rating from the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory–a significant accomplishment indicating that his peers rank him at the highest level of professional excellence.

He attended Hampden-Sydney College on an academic scholarship and graduated with a B.A. in political science. He earned a Juris Doctor degree from Campbell University Law School and was editor-in-chief of the Campbell Law Observer.

In addition to his legal advocacy for clients, Kris and the family law attorneys at Younce, Vtipil & Baznik have been active in a petition drive urging lawmakers to replace an outdated North Carolina sexual consent law. The law firm has been seeking to build grassroots support to rewrite the archaic North Carolina law that currently does not allow a person to revoke consent to have intercourse after the sex has begun. Kris appeared on CNN, WRAL, and other news outlets with a client who had been a victim of domestic assault to increase awareness of the need to change North Carolina’s outdated consent law.

Since 2002, Business North Carolina magazine has published a listing of the state’s top lawyers in various practice area categories.

Lawyers may not select themselves and can only vote for members of their own firms if they also choose someone outside their firms in the same category, with more weight given to outside votes. Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite has become the model for other awards and lists.

About Younce, Vtipil & Baznik, PA

The law firm of Younce Vtipil & Baznik PA, provides experienced, compassionate and effective legal representation to people in family law matters and domestic issues. The firm also represents individuals who have been injured on the job or hurt in other types of accidents. The firm’s attorneys have received honors including an AV Preeminent rating from the respected Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory.

How To Get A Second Date – 9 Secret Tips For Men

Dream One Love

CHICAGO, IL, January 30, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Scientists say that a man will know whether a woman has a long-term potential or not within just few minutes of meeting and interacting with her. However, many times, men are too bedazzled by the woman’s beauty to see this. If you are dating Russian women, you can prepare yourself to get a second date.

This can make a man to feel a lot of pressure to perform on the first date. But why a man? This is because if you think that she is awesome when you meet her and you ask her out for a date, then you will need to make sure that you will show her that you are also awesome enough to go out with again. How well you perform during your first date will determine whether a woman will agree to go with you on a second date, or not. So are you ready? Here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Show her lots of interest and attention

Women love men who pay attention to love. During your first date, make sure that she sees you are comfortable around her and you are also enjoying yourself.

Flipping through your phone when on a date might seem to the woman that you are disinterested. Therefore, if it is possible, leave your phone at home, or lock it in the car and if you cannot do that switch off the thing and put it away. It is a date killer this one.

2. Reconsider kissing during the first date

Research has shown that the majority of those who made it for the second date did not kiss on their first date. Russian women can be a bit prudish, so mind your manners around her. Men that withhold from kissing the woman during the first date are likely to get a second date from her.

If both of you are feeling it you can go for it though this finding has shown that if you enjoyed the first date without kissing, there is a better chance of things working out between the two of you. It’s better to err on the side of caution – so no kissing on the first date. Resist!

3. Plan for a second date on the first date

Do you know one the biggest factors of getting a second date is planning a second date during the first one? If things are working out perfectly well during the first date, why should you deny yourself the chance of getting second one by simply not planning another one while still on the first one.

It is not easy to find someone who you connect and enjoy spending time with. Therefore, when you find that lovely woman who fits the bill, take a risk and see what life has in store for you. Ask subtly whether there will be a second date. There will be, if she did not cook up, an excuse like baby fell down the stairs, my friend is calling me to take her to hospital and so on.

4. Keep the first date simple and cheap

Do not get yourself broke on the first date. Try to keep things as simple as you can. The first date is for basically getting to know each other but not to show off how much money you can spend on your woman.

Keeping the first date simple will increase the likelihood of being more flamboyant during the second date.

5. Be yourself
