Top 5 Services & Tips Small Businesses Can Use to be More Efficient in 2013 from Offers.com:
1. Save on Travel Costs – Travel can be expensive, especially on a small business budget. Businesses can save by buying items for their company with business rewards cards like Gold Delta SkyMiles, where companies can earn miles on every purchase. GoToMeeting is also a great solution that allows for virtual collaboration for up to 25 participants to screenshare and video conference. On Offers.com, businesses can find coupons and coupon codes to stretch their travel dollars even further.

2. Use Online Services Instead of Professionals - To run a smart business, companies can reduce expenses associated with specialized skilled jobs by taking advantage of the right low cost tools and services. Using LegalZoom for straightforward legal services is far cheaper than hiring an attorney. And just about anyone can master dynamic accounting software like QuickBooks for all of their bookkeeping needs. QuickBooks Online allows businesses to access their accounting information anywhere and a free trial is available on Offers.com.

3. Utilize Mobile Services to Accept Transactions – Transactional based companies should look into apps like GoPayment, which turns smartphones and tablets into credit card readers. It also makes bookkeeping a snap for companies that download their GoPayment records into their QuickBooks software, sending all of the company's financial information to one easy-to-access place.

4. Purchase Products That Will Last – When furnishing an office, companies should buy new and high quality equipment and office furniture to avoid having to spend more money in the long run. Cheaper and substandard furniture breaks easily and wears out faster, forcing you to spend more money later to replace it. For more information about what type of office furniture is right for your business, check out our tips on How to Buy New Office Furniture, including information about customized and affordable options.

5. Use Online Forums - Not only does American Express and QuickBooks partner with Offers.com to make great deals available for small business owners, they also host forums and resources to answer small business questions. Companies can take advantage of free advice from experts to help their small businesses thrive.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
