Several of our posts have outlined just how tough 2009 was economically. We identified things we did, and should have done, to support our organizations from an IT and business integration perspective.
Not all organizations suffered through this time, but a great many did. Being optimists, REMEDI and a majority of our clients marched forward expecting some light at the end of the tunnel. I believe we may be on the edge of better economic times, but still have a ways to go.
While indirectly relating to B2Bi and enterprise integration, and directly relating to management of a company in these conditions, I discovered some facts that optimists will appreciate and many pessimists as well.
These facts show there have been rougher times as it relates to the categories listed.
Thinking out loud... are Americans more aware of bad times given ever increasing access to news through a growing list of digital channels?
