  • Retailers focus on streamlining landing pages
    Clearing up clutter on landing pages and building better links are the top website goals of online merchants, according to the results of a survey.

  • Intel to move into security with McAfee purchase
    Intel has forged a deal to acquire McAfee for $7.68 billion, and will integrate the company's security technology into its chips for computers, smartphones and consumer electronics. However, some analysts said the expenditure seems excessive given the limited apparent synergies. "Eventually the software features will get embedded in the hardware. So maybe this is an expensive way for Intel to acquire domain expertise," said analyst Ashok Kumar of Rodman & Renshaw.

  • DSC Logistics improves worker productivity with RedPrairie rollout
    DSC Logistics has significantly improved its worker productivity since implementing RedPrairie's Labor Management System, says Engineering Director Jim Chamberlain. A 2005 test of the system in DSC's McDonough, Ga., warehouse led to a leaner and more productive workforce with very low turnover; the results of the pilot program were so successful that the company expanded the system to all of its facilities.

  • Can geeks learn to be good leaders?
    Geeks seldom make great leaders -- which is causing problems at America's tech companies, where people promoted for their technical wizardry are expected to start managing people, write Robert Fulmer and Byron Hanson. To solve the sector's leadership crisis, companies need to start nurturing and rewarding leadership skills as well as sheer brainpower. "If tech companies want to encourage coaching and mentoring, they need to recognize and reward employees for doing it," Fulmer and Hanson argue.
