This solution enables remote health professionals to have access to software, resources and support that’s the same as city based health professionals.

The future of business is not ‘Up In The Air’. It’s ‘Up In The...

From time to time, when I’m sitting in an airplane, I think about the movie “Up In the Air.” I’m not thinking about how the main character feels most comfortable when flying from place to place, or how he has the awful task of firing good people on the ground. No, I think of a certain scene where the lead, played by George Clooney, informs a person he’s just sacked that “anybody who ever built an empire or changed the world sat where you are now.”

Even though Australia enjoys an excellent budgetary position by world standards, fiscal policy has been a big issue for the current federal election. In a tight election, each party argued hard that their policies would deliver the biggest budget surplus over the next three years. However, when this year's historic post-election dramas are over, the winner will be faced with the challenge of some serious belt-tightening if it is to deliver on promises. Whichever party wins, the next three years will herald another period of efficiency drives and cuts.

I need a server! And other fear-based business purchases.

Picture this. You are at a party. You casually mention a problem you’ve had with your computer. Before you know it, someone you barely know creeps up and whispers the words “you need a server” and then disappears before they ever really showed up. You are left confused and on your own with those words ringing in your ear.
