Why Your Past Relationships Failed?

Why Your Past Relationships Failed?

There are very similar components and moving pieces that will either help build or help destroy the relationship. Honest, hard work and accountability are very deeply threaded throughout the recruiting process and long-term partnership. Without honesty,

TNE Cares About Keeping in Touch with Great People

As all great recruiters know, that celebrated moment of confirming a candidate’s placement is not the end of the relationship.  As long as the correct ethical balance is maintained, it seems that both the candidate and client companies can gain from recruitment professionals continuing to nurture the relationship once the placement has been confirmed.

Illinois farming comprises nearly 27 million acres or around 75% of the land in the state. So, farming is a part of most everyone’s lives. When I think of growing up in Springfield, corn fields

Ali-Who?

Ali-Who?

If you haven 't heard of Alibaba, you may want to start paying close attention to the Chinese e-commerce giant - and for good reason. Founded in 2009 by Jack Ma, Alibaba Cloud has evolved into China’s dominant cloud computing services provider. They are offering clients such as electronics giant Philips, Schneider Electric and marketing platform Blogmint a wide range of storage, security, and database management options. For its fiscal first quarter, the company reported Alibaba Cloud revenues swelled 156% year-over-year to $188 million with 577,000 paid users. Analysts figure Alibaba Cloud is massively underestimated and expect it to become a key driver very quickly. China’s cloud industry is on the brink of massive growth, with Alibaba Cloud best positioned to reap the benefits. In fact, analysts expect Alibaba Cloud’s revenues will grow 112% annually by 2020. One of Alibaba Cloud’s greatest advantages remains its China roots, which have enabled Alibaba Cloud to rapidly grow locally in ways foreign competition such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure could not, due to China’s data sovereignty and cyber-security laws. More challenging will be growth in the US, where Amazon Web Services is virtually synonymous with “cloud computing” and which Morgan Stanley values at $91 billion. (Alibaba Cloud, meanwhile, is valued by the firm at $39 billion.) To that end, Alibaba Cloud has made deals with graphics chipmaker Nvidia to use its silicon for crunching certain tasks faster, as well as HTC to help power the Taiwanese company’s VIVE virtual reality headset. And in July, the cloud services provider appointed former Microsoft scientist Jingren Zhou as chief scientist to lead research around A.I. and big data. Alibaba intends to spend aggressively on its Cloud’s expansion efforts, and in turn, will be in the red, until such time when the cloud services provider amasses one million paid customers. At that point, they expect profitability will start to show. As of right now, they are half way to that golden number. I have a feeling in 2017, we' ll soon be hearing 'Ali-Cloud' in the same breath with
