Each month, we will revisit our top blogs of the month, giving you the chance to check out some of our favorites. Here’s a look at the top blog posts from June…
Trilix Turns 1
Coming off the heels of our first birthday on May 1, our CEO/Founder Tim Hebert took to the blog to pull back the curtain on what our customers, partners and community at large can expect from Team Trilix in Year 2. Among his predictions, Tim talked about Trilix’s continued commitment to sparking dialogue and action as it relates to technology innovation business process improvement.
“We will continue to help our clients recognize that change is possible and that technology can accelerate that transformation. Acceleration can come in many forms, from selecting and implementing a new business application to finally automating a manual process to integrating your office phone system with your CRM to going paperless.”
Pace of Change—Frightening, Isn’t It?
Think of the day-to-day responsibilities of a job you held five years ago. No matter your line of work—finance, operations, human resources—chances are what was important then, what you did and how you did it was exceedingly different than it is today. That’s because the pace of change in the business world is staggering. In fact, the second top concern of CEOs, according to findings from the C-Suite Challenge™ 2018 report, is creating new business models because of disruptive technologies. This is also true for the rest of the C-Suite, including CHROs and CFOs.
This month, Trilix’s Lead Architect Scott Cornell explored the impact of change, particularly when it comes to technology—recounting just how different a developer’s life is today than it was years ago. Scott takes a stroll down memory lane—when Sencha’s Ext JS was the go-to developer framework—to demonstrate firsthand how it really is a changing world necessitating heightened attention and forward-thinking from business leaders.

3 Workplace Woes to Eradicate
This month, I had the chance to sit down with Randy Jackvony, our Principal of Technology and Client Services, and pick his brain on the top workplace woes—specifically technology, systems and operations challenges—that we must start to tackle as business leaders. Our podcast kicks off the first of many episodes that we will begin to create to support our Workplace Excellence Podcast Series. In this podcast, Randy and I explored:
- The impact of employee morale and productivity issues; did you that 56% of employees don’t have the latest tech needed to do their job well
- The top grievances—think manual reports—that keep our employees from feeling engaged and empowered
- The steps business leaders can take tomorrow to start creating more excellent work environments.
What’s Your Floppy Disk?
In case you missed it, just a few days ago, Tim took to the blog again to revisit the heyday of the floppy disk. When it was introduced in the 1970s, the floppy disk was a corporate game-changer, allowing the everyday person to load operating systems and other software programs onto their personal computers, and store data reliably. But, as technology evolved, the floppy disk became increasingly obsolete—nothing more than a fond memory today.
What is your “floppy disk,” asks Tim in his latest blog. What archaic, futile technology, process or system remains in your business environment—or, worse, drives business outcomes. Is your floppy disk:
- Excel hell
- Sole keepers of company knowledge
- Old, antiquated databases
- Poor user adoption
- Weak client, partner and stakeholder engagement with your brand is weak at best
- Disparate systems
“If any of these pains describe your business reality, you might have a floppy disk present,” writes Tim.
