Latest News in Cloud Project Management

Can’t See the Clouds Through the Fog?

Call Us.

Are you experiencing Cloud Fog? Although it’s meteorologically unlikely, it IS a real thing. Cloud Fog happens when you have software and data in so many Clouds – with countless control and security issues – that your enterprise gets swallowed up in a haze of complexity and indecision.

It happens all the time and causes IT departments to lose control when faced with:

  • Too many Cloud provider contracts to deal with
  • Too few IT resources to manage/update apps and infrastructure
  • Too many integration points
  • Too few ways to consolidate data into usable Business Intelligence
  • Too many locations to control license compliance and user management

Not a Problem Yet? Just Wait

Today about 33% of all your software depends on the Cloud. In the next two years, that number will shoot up to around 80%. With those odds, you can’t afford to get lost in the chaos.

Sure, you may be okay juggling a handful of Clouds today. But at projected growth rates, you’ll be dealing with 100, 500 or even 1,500 Clouds faster than you can say cumulonimbus.

As Fog Spreads, So Can Your Troubles

Watch for these telltale signs of creeping Cloud Fog:

  • Lack of app control (version and compliance glitches) Too few IT resources to manage/update apps and infrastructure
  • Poor integration between many systems Too few ways to consolidate data into usable Business Intelligence
  • Difficulty creating usable BI and a single version of the truth
  • Trouble automating repetitive processes across apps
  • Struggling to manage users and assets across apps
  • Incompatible processes, procedures and tools between clients and Joint Venture teams

You can avoid Cloud Fog by consolidating all your data and apps with a limited number of Cloud providers who specialize in your specific software categories. You know, like LoadSpring and Project Management apps. Here’s why we’re the right choice:

The Millennials Are Coming!

The Millennials Are Coming!

It’s happening. A new generation of project management professionals (PMPs) is making its way into the workforce. You know – those adult offspring of Gen Xer’s, raised on smartphone video games, webcams, DIY videos and texting.

Now, they’re in their mid-20s and early 30s with fresh BAs, BSs and Project Control Certifications, raring to change the world.

To be competitive, your enterprise – and your approach to project management – needs to evolve continually. That’s precisely where this new crop of pros comes in, with fresh ideas and contagious energy you can’t afford to miss.

Are you prepared for these tech-savvy, multitasking wizards? Do you have programs in place to help attract, hire and retain these rising stars? Remember these tips:

  • Communicate On Their Terms: When recruiting, connect via email or text – they thrive on instant communication. Save those live interviews for short list hopefuls.
  • Pump Up Those Benefits: Millennials expect them. You’ll lure more candidates by offering flex hours, generous health plans, vacation time, etc.
  • Embrace A Cooler Corporate Culture: Provide your new Millennials with a fun, team-oriented environment, a relaxed dress code and comforts like healthy snacks; they’ll stay later and work harder. Just ask the recruiters at Google.
  • Be A Mensch: Today’s 30-somethings want a coach that will cheer them on, not a supervisor hovering around micromanaging them. Share your wisdom and set up your new hires to succeed by including them in your processes and decision-making, not to mention showing your appreciation for their new ideas.
  • Be an Open Book: Don’t save your feedback until review time. Speak up (and listen) in real time, when positive change is most likely. This generation expects frequent, candid conversations about their work.

Whether you’re a Boomer, Gen-X, Millennial or somewhere in between, if you’re in Project Management you need to know about LoadSpring Solutions. Contact us information@loadspring.com or call +1 978-685-9715.

No One Does EcoSys Better than LoadSpring
