This week, Alpha executives offered their perspective on business trends in stories relating to business management and the future of technology.

    • Alpha Software CEO Richard Rabins leads off InfoWorld’s management advice feature, “The Road to Success: Tech Leaders Tell All.” The article offers InfoWorldpractical advice from tech executives at companies like Rackspace and Raytheon on how to maneuver office politics as readers step into upper-management level roles. In the article, Rabins advices:

“Office politics is internal warfare, and market competition is external warfare. Stay focused on the mission of the department/business,” Rabins says. “Remind your colleagues that if too much attention is paid to the internal conflicts, it can weaken the company and put jobs in jeopardy. Remember who the real competition is. Someone who shows this skill and keeps the team focused on the end goal has true managerial skills.

    • NetworkWorld interviewed CTO Dan Bricklin for an article that predicts market changes, “9 Ways Technology Will Change in the Next 10 Years.” This storyNetworkWorld enlightens readers on what experts in the industry predict will be key technology developments in the next decade.

Traditional productivity apps, such as spreadsheets, are best used with a PC and a keyboard, but these apps won’t work well on a mobile device. He explains that, as a result, productivity apps will be more diverse and specialized based on the use case or user role.
