Technology companies this year have been hit with global economic turbulence that is slowing growth and leading to widespread layoffs, even as some segments of enterprise spending on IT seem to be holding steady.<p>According to TrueUp???s <a href="" rel="nofollow">tech layoff tracker</a>, there have been 1138 rounds of layoffs at tech companies globally so far this year, affecting 182,605 people.<p>When global economic headwinds started picking up earlier in the year, many technology companies reacted to fears of an incoming recession by putting the <a href=" ... ml">brakes on hiring</a>. The bad news is???amid rising interest rates, the ongoing war in Ukraine, high fuel costs, <a href=" ... ml">supply chain issues</a>, and a <a href=" ... l">decline in personal PC sales</a>???most of those freezes have since been accompanied by job cuts, as companies look for ways to reduce operating costs.<p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3679733/tech-layoffs-in-2022-a-timeline.html#jump">To read this article in full, please click here</a>

You'd think keeping tabs on your contacts would be about the simplest and most straightforward task imaginable in our modern connected world ??? wouldn't you?<p>I sure would. But as I've learned over the years, that perfectly understandable instinct couldn't be more inaccurate.<p>Effectively wrangling your contacts on Android and keeping 'em manageable, organized, and optimized for efficiency really is a fine art. And in a way, it's no wonder: Most of us have reached a point where our phones' contacts are a sprawling goulash of earthlings from all different eras of our lives ??? clients, colleagues, college buddies, and, of course, your cousin Carl from Poughkeepsie.<p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3679708/android-contacts-management-ultimate-guide.html#jump">To read this article in full, please click here</a>

In the shadow of the Twitter disaster: How to prep for layoffs

<p>Dell has the best acquisition process on the planet. What makes it so good is this: Dell does a lot of due diligence and planning at the front end and accepts the related risk of having to sideline executives for up to a year if the acquisition doesn???t go through. This measures the risk of losing the productivity of a handful of people against losing the productivity of the entire acquired unit. So far, every Dell acquisition I???ve tracked has not only been successful, but the acquired company outperformed its previous status. (This last is very unusual; most acquisitions fail to meet expectations.)<p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3679692/in-the-shadow-of-the-twitter-disaster-how-to-prep-for-layoffs.html#jump">To read this article in full, please click here</a>

Cloud, services to fuel 3.7% jump in EMEA IT spending in 2023: Gartner

New research from Gartner shows that IT spending in EMEA is set to see a 3.7%, year- over-year increase in 2023, rising to $1.3 trillion.<p>While companies are often hesitant to sign new contracts or commit to long-term spending initiatives during turbulent times, enterprise IT budgets are not central to this hesitancy, and as a result, businesses in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) are set to increase their IT budgets in 2023, said Gartner analyst and vice president John Lovelock.<p>In research released Wednesday at the company's IT Symposium 2022 in Barcelona, Gartner found that increased spending on cloud software is largely fuelling the spending growth, with EMEA CIOs using cloud-first technologies to drive new initiatives, such as packaged business capabilities (PBCs) and data grids, while maintaining current on-premises environments.<p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3679492/cloud-services-to-fuel-37-jump-in-emea-it-spending-in-2023-gartner.html#jump">To read this article in full, please click here</a>
