The Social Enterprise Keynote by Yolande

Title: Learn something about social enterprise, you will. Yes, hmmm.

Social Enterprise is no longer something that is a separate type of enterprise. Every enterprise (large and small) is finding the need to develop this agenda to ensure longevity and sustainability. Predictions state that businesses that lack this intelligence will become irrelevant in as little as 5 years. So what separates the different models and how can we all get started to ensure a bright future and a healthy bottom line?

The XI Prize

At IBIS 2015, Yolande Grill, COO and Chief Transformation Officer of InfoSol, announced an exciting new initiative and challenge to everyone to create a Business Intelligence solution that would make a positive impact and difference in the world. This initiative is called the XI Prize and InfoSol would donate software and provide BI expertise to help get these solutions started.
