Digital Darwinism: the Natural Selection of Businesses




Natural selection teaches us the reality that not every species will survive. Businesses also face the same reality. However, unlike a species that is unable to wrest control of its fate of existence or extinction, businesses still retain a large degree of autonomy over their future.

What does it take to stay on top of the Fortune 500 List?




BY KENNETH LIM, ALPHA7, CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER

People come and go. Companies, too, come and go. But have we ever wondered why? What are the causes?

A comparison was made on the Fortune 500 lists of 1955 and 2014. Only 61 of the 500 companies managed to stay on the list for the past 60 years. Since the industrial revolution, we have seen new cities emerge and flourish while other once-thriving cities have been downgraded to the relics of a bygone era. Now, we are experiencing another revolution which has taken every industry by storm.

Modernizing IT Systems in the Digital Age




By Jonathan Neo

Many established companies face the vexing problem of having to keep their IT systems up-to-date in this rapidly changing digital age.

These companies incur high capital cost on their IT systems and would unsurprisingly want to maximize their investment before deciding on any overhaul. As such, they have a tendency to use short-term patches to get around limitations of existing systems. But over time, these stopgap measures accumulate and will eventually create problems within a company’s IT infrastructure, leading to increased operation costs.
