barack obama

As VP of Operations at BairesDev, Damián is responsible for the entire customer relations life-cycle, safeguarding the company’s operations.  

The pandemic has put business operations in the spotlight. With the seemingly infinite number of challenges the world is facing right now, it’s more clear than ever that embracing technology is the only way forward. However, not all businesses have the necessary expertise, resources and talent to carry out such a transition successfully.

This has pushed many companies toward various nearshore and offshore software outsourcing practices. On paper, outsourcing is designed to provide high-quality solutions faster and more cost-efficiently than in-house operations. For many, this is exactly what happened. But others didn’t have as much luck.

Why is this? Is offshore software outsourcing actually worth it in a pandemic? What’s the best way to minimize risk in times as uncertain as these? As the vice president of operations at

Recipe for selling software in a pandemic: Be essential, add some machine learning, and focus, focus, focus

Sales of software programs are already being affected by the pandemic, as seen this week in the disappointing results of Slack Technologies, makers of the popular program for team collaboration. 

It turns out, when companies are cutting staff, they have less need for such programs. 

But it turns out there is a way for a nimble software maker to thrive in the current era, namely, by bringing valuable tools to very specific parts of the market. 

Such is the case for thirty-year-old software vendor Prophix, based just outside of Toronto, Ontario, in Mississauga. The company sells software for the finance department of mid-sized companies for evaluating financial data and performing forecasting. 

Prophix’s tools are designed to be much more accessible than general ledger programs from giant vendors such as Workday and Oracle, for the finance department that doesn’t have access to teams of analysts. Most of Prophix’s clients are companies

Four Trends Winning Teams Will Embrace.

It has become a truism that “Covid-19 will change everything,” but in the case of selling software, the evidence for significant change is already clear. Few areas of business have felt more disruption from the pandemic than enterprise software sales – and few have seen as much rapid adaptation to the current environment. Using the tools of digital revolution, the traditional selling process is undergoing a fascinating reinvention. 

Historically, enterprise-level software sales have depended on intensely personal connections and interactions. Regardless of the product, sales involved an elaborate, almost ritualized courting process. A series of carefully orchestrated in-person meetings, often involving CTOs, CIOs and even CEOs has been the norm. Multiple rounds of dinner, lunch or coffee meetings, extensive travel to corporate headquarters, and other

Revlon Sees Suit Over Flawed Software Rollout Tossed

barack obama

Law360 (September 18, 2020, 8:17 PM EDT) — A New York federal judge on Thursday tossed a proposed class action that alleged cosmetics company Revlon and its executives misled investors about problems with its new software, citing the “abundant disclosures” Revlon made about the flawed rollout.

In dismissing the suit, U.S. District Judge Rachel P. Kovner said investors didn’t show Revlon or its executives intended to deceive them about how poorly its new software was running and how it had hurt manufacturing operations, sales and, ultimately, stock prices.

Citing the many cautionary statements made before and after the software rollout, Judge Kovner said the “steady stream of warnings renders…

Goldman Sachs: These 3 Stocks Are Poised to Surge by at Least 50%

Is it time for the bears to break out the champagne glasses? Not so fast, says Goldman Sachs. Volatility has ruled the Street for the last few weeks, leading some to conclude that those with a more pessimistic outlook had been vindicated, but the firm believes stocks can still climb higher.According to Goldman Sachs’ head of U.S. equity strategy, David Kostin, the S&P 500 could still hit 3,600 by the end of the year, and 3,800 by mid-2021, on the back of vaccine-related optimism and progress with the economic reopening. This would reflect gains of 10% and 16%, respectively, should the index ultimately reach these targets.“Despite the sharp sell-off in the past week, we remain optimistic about the path of the U.S. equity market in coming months.

But the truth is, the basic Microsoft application isn’t the only graphics app that doesn’t support curved text. Many photo editing and graphic-creation apps still can’t make a situate a row of text in a rounded shape.
