Summer 2018

While the summer season provides a great opportunity for rest and relaxation, it also offers a particular opportunity for executives and managers alike to take a step back and reevaluate their business. But just as students are tasked with a summer reading curriculum in order to keep their minds sharp, it's also important for professionals to do the same.

That's why in this edition of the IT Industry Rundown, we present to you articles - from national publications as well as original content posted on our blog - designed to enlighten and inform. Below, we present to you our own version of summer reading!

I hope you find these articles informative as you continue to recharge your batteries. Please connect with us on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter for even more industry information.
