Syndicated from ebizQ Well last week was exciting on the ebizQ blog – thousands of new visitors after a link from a popular programming blog. This article – Programming Sucks!

Jim Sinur’s new blog

Jim Sinur, formerly the rules guru over at Gartner and now CSO At Global 360 has a blog to which he has started posting. He already has three posts I found interesting: The Grey Wave is Coming: BPM has to HelpAutomating decisions is also critical when you start thinking about the impending wave of retirement. [...]
