Attention C-Level Executives: TEM is More Important Than Ever!

Is Your IT Department Drowning in Data (Yet)?

An interesting article published on techtarget takes a look at the overwhelming amount of data being thrown off by technology; in particular, by all the devices we use.

But what do we want?​ At TTI, we hav...

Is it Time to Give Your Vendors a Report Card?

When was the last time you sat down and graded each of your vendors? Or have you? Perhaps you have had this happen with a vendor.
