Ray Wang – Founder and Chairman, Constellation Research

COVID-19 exposed weaknesses in every organization’s back-office system. The inability to easily access data, enable self-service capabilities, and intelligently automate processes has created demand for self-driving and autonomous ERP solutions. Add the shift to the cloud, the pressure of digital transformation, and replacement-cycle dynamics, and customers are seeing the greatest level of innovation in a decade.

Anxiety is the most prevalent mental health challenge, detrimentally impacting approximately 30% of the working population and costing the economy $500 million daily. Jodie’s Mind Strength Method is transformational and ground-breaking. The ROI of conquering anxiety and stress and building resilience is significant.
