Business planning, as we know it, is finishedThe age of business planning is finished? What? That’s what Forbes’s contributing author Dov Seidman recently suggested, stating that “What business needs now is to journey, to embark on a curvilinear path that eschews quarterly reports and gives room to explore new initiatives… Companies need to compete against former partners, partner with former competitors and thrive amid rapidly changing conditions and intense uncertainty… Business leaders must actively care for a broader set of priorities, understanding that we are creating our own ecosystems of suppliers, consumers, employees and so many other stakeholders.” It is a fascinating read.

Speaking of creating an ecosystem of suppliers, if you are already deep into planning for 2013, one thing you may be considering is who will provide your mission-critical IT Infrastructure. Now, I could tell you how Internap is one of the leading IT Infrastructure providers and espouse on our award-winning support, patented route optimization technology, etc., but wouldn’t you rather hear it from the customer’s point of view? I think our customers tell how we helped them better than we ever could.
