MESSAGE FROM sajid A. khan


Founder of Merrill Lynch Technology

Dear Group Members,

Welcome to the September 2019 edition of our monthly newsletter.

Digital transformation success requires a company go beyond just implementing new technologies; it must change its operating model so it can reinvent business value. Many companies face this problem by achieving only incremental benefits that amount to doing work better and faster and lowering some costs. But they fail to do something different, not just better, to create and deliver new value. Implementing innovative technology is not enough to create greater value but implementing analytical technology can improve the insights a company gets from its customer data. But it also won’t change the way the company interacts with its customers to improve the customer experience, thus creating greater value and competitive advantage.

If you need any help with building a good team in Cloud Environment, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Thank you very much for your time and continued support.

Best Regards,

Sajid A. Khan

Dear Group Members,

Welcome to the July 2019 edition of our monthly newsletter.

For many companies, when it comes to implementing AI, the typical approach is to use certain features from existing software platforms.  But then there are those companies that are building their own models. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning will leverage massive amounts of data to power greater insights, improve diagnoses and treatment, and support consumer health decisions. While it’s important to experiment with AI, there should still be a strong discipline when it comes to tracking the project. Even though AI tools are getting much better, they still require data science skills. It is critical that the people driving AI adoption within an enterprise remain realistic about the time-frame and what AI is capable of doing.

If you need any help identifying right Data Scientist for your AI projects, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Thank you very much for your time and continued support.

Best Regards.

Sajid A. Khan.

The Fortune at the Bottom of the Org Chart

The impetus to build good relationships at work isn’t, and shouldn’t be, transactional. It’s simply a matter of being human and building a respectful, positive environment. Those relationships can make a big difference. Lower-level employees can turn into some of your most important and influential allies. And the time you take to authentically invest in them can pay off in unexpected ways.

One Way to Finance Tech Startups Outside of Superstar Cities

In smaller cities and middle-income regions across the globe, even the best ideas and most promising new businesses can die on the vine for lack of access to markets and capital. Those regions need new forms of innovation financing to prosper in an age of globalized commerce. With the right funding, many communities across the U.S. can — and should — build their own locally-sourced innovation economies.

Dear Group Members,

Welcome to the June 2019 edition of our monthly newsletter.

The modern cloud has made the storage and access of massive datasets routine. Companies today manage so much data in the cloud, with even hundreds of petabytes not unheard of, that the real challenge has become not how to store massive data in the cloud, but how to most easily, securely and powerfully extract insights from that data at scale. The future of the cloud therefore lies in how to help companies extract meaningful insight from their vast repositories of raw data.

If you need any help with data management and security, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

 

Thank you very much for your time and continued support.

Best Regards.

Sajid A. Khan.

Dear Group Members,

Welcome to the March edition of our monthly newsletter.

For businesses, it is highly advisable to transform as per changing environment. More than a decade ago, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman declared in his best-selling book that technology had made the world “flat,” meaning that every corner of the world was connected for instantaneous communication and commerce. Now it’s not only flatter but deeper and transparent.

Every company today in the world of AI and big data can sense and capture all the data around the business. Depending upon the sort of IT transformation your company plans to undertake to meet current challenges related to Data, you may hope to find individuals who can manage projects, analyze, outlines, test business forms, research markets and clients, attempt practical examinations and organizational updates, serve as technology architects w/ great demonstration skills, plan and execute communication designs, embrace change and transformation management, and most significantly, lead and inspire teams.

If you need any help with building a good team for your IT transformation, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Thank you very much for your time and continued support.

MESSAGE FROM sajid A. khan


Founder of Merrill Lynch Technology

Dear Group Members,

The festivities are over and now it’s time to resume achieving your objectives for this year and beyond.
No matter how successful your previous year has been, in order to grow your business even further over the coming months, you’ll need to take
a look at your processes and come up with a strategy to improve them. 2018 has been a banner year for economic growth, with the U.S. gross domestic product rising at an annual pace of 3.5% in the third quarter and at 4.2% in the second quarter, according to the Bureau of Economic Statistics. The economic growth is expected to slow from 2.9% to 2.5% in 2019 due to tighter financial conditions and a fading fiscal stimulus, according to Goldman Sachs Research.

On behalf of MicroAgility, Inc., I wish you all the best for 2019.

Thank you very much for your time and continued support.

Sincerely,

Sajid A. Khan, Your Business Partner
