Language Study: Reducing the Impact of Language Barriers

Published By: Rosetta Stone     Published Date: Jul 05, 2017
In global, multicultural organizations, simply expecting all employees to speak one common language, such as English, marginalizes the potential impact of international talent and leaves monolingual staff ill-equipped to help the organization compete effectively in a globalized environment. In an increasingly global economy, U.S. companies will perform better by hiring individuals who can communicate in foreign languages and helping current employees develop language skills. Forbes Insights, in conjunction with Rosetta Stone, surveyed more than 100 executives at large U.S. businesses (annual revenues of more than $500 million) and found that language barriers have a broad and pervasive impact on business operations. The survey found that foreign language skills will be even more vital in the future and that language abilities can help executives advance their careers, speed overseas expansion, and boost corporate—as well as personal—success.

MicroStrategy 2019 Whitepaper

Published By: MicroStrategy     Published Date: Aug 28, 2019
Over the last decade, the enterprise analytics landscape has dramatically transformed. Vendors have come and gone, and platforms have continually expanded their offerings to include new functionality and keep pace with the demands of the businesses they serve. Originally envisioned as an IT-centric tool for enterprise reporting, analytics today has evolved into a business solution—empowering a range of users across every line of business, including front-line employees, field personnel, and executives. The rise of self-service analytics over the past decade has played a key role in promoting a data-driven mindset within every business function. However, this practice is limited to a skilled few. The vast majority of business professionals lack the time, analytical skills, or inclination to conduct their own analyses, and fail to effectively use analytics on a day-to-day basis. The result? Despite decades of investments, BI adoption at most organizations remains at 30%. The failure of e
