NEW YORK, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Prentice Capital, the Michael Zimmerman fund specializing in retail investments, predicts that retail sales will grow faster than expected during the second half of 2014. This view is supported by the latest National Retail Federation retail sales forecast which calculates that retail sales are expected to grow at least 3.9% during the second half(1). Zimmerman's positive view is despite the fact that US store visits fell by nearly 7% in June and nearly 5% in July, and overall have fallen by 5% or more from a year earlier in every month for the past two years according to ShopperTrak(2). It's not all bad news however - consumers are still buying, they are just increasingly doing it online. Consumer behaviour is changing. Instead of wandering through stores making impulse purchases, shoppers use their mobile phones and computer... (more)

8 Tips for Going Paperless In Your Small Business

8 Tips for Going Paperless In Your Small Business Ray Coleman is a small business owner who writes about money management, green living, and sustainability.   One of the great benefits of the modern age is the ability of small businesses to conduct a majority of their operations in the digital realm.

An Enterprise and Software Architect's Tools of the Trade

I have been doing Software Architecture for 16 years and Enterprise Architecture for the past few. Along with architecture I usually find as part of each gig, if not the main focus of each gig, process implementation or at least process improvement is required. It is not easy keeping up the latest technologies, processes, architectural techniques, and enterprise architecture framework improvements. I am a firm believer that to be an architect, you must also be an experienced developer. I do not believe in the hands off architect role and wish the Ivory Tower Architects would stop claiming to be Architects. They are theorist not architects. Modeling, Governance, and documenting are part of the architect's job, but in order to produce valuable artifacts you need to be getting your hands dirty. I also run into a ton of Googler-Developers. Meaning they have no idea why ... (more)
