What Are You Waiting For?

By Brian Kopack

Are you over your resolutions yet?

It’s been almost two weeks.

How can a “holiday” cause so much angst?  The grand visions of a life-changing conversion at the flip of a calendar page are just too enticing.

If only someone would invent willpower-in-a-can already, we could get past this.

Somehow, we believe January 1 holds the mystical key to self-improvement.  It doesn’t.  We could decide to change – to do or not to do anything - any minute of any day.  We just have to follow through.  A good idea isn’t bound by the calendar nor valuable unless we actually do something.

Businesses get it.  They make resolutions all the time.  That incredible flexibility does not, however, cut down on the frustration of unfulfilled expectations.  Next month, next quarter, next year will be the perfect time to start the {fill in the blank} project.  The problem is – often, the problems don’t go away, time marches on and mediocrity becomes the status quo.

Of all the resolutions businesses make – to more effectively and efficiently manage information is usually at the top of the list because with technology advancing as dramatically as it is, there is no finish line for content management.

Any comprehensive strategy is constantly evolving.  Plans include: system integrations, manual-task automation, legacy system conversions, total process re-engineering, separately or in combination.

That’s where IOS comes in – squarely in the resolution-fulfillment business.  Almost a content management life-coach because our expertise covers all of those areas and the depth and breadth of our experience makes our perspective unique.

Complex business problems need expert solutions delivered expertly.

IOS totally believes that.  We are confident in our ability to deliver great ideas supported by our expertise, our creativity and our agility to solve the information management challenges of our customers.  We know our ideas can help unlock their potential.  We understand the power of technology.  We’ve seen how that power, when properly deployed, can be transformational.

We know great ideas create enthusiasm. Enthusiasm inspires action.  People are more likely to work in support of an idea that makes them better.  Success breeds success.

It will always be the idea that matters.  2016 will be no different.

Cheers!
