The war for talent is a term that was coined by Steven Hankin of McKinsey & Company in 1997 to refer to
an increasingly competitive landscape for recruiting and retaining talent. Today, this “war” has escalated

Like the innovative products themselves, the rulebook on monetizing them is evolving. Firms are shifting from one-time perpetual sales or fixed monthly subscriptions to consumption models that blend onetime, subscription, and usage-based billing (see Figure 1). CEOs recognize this shift toward business

As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.

The old adage, "you get what you pay for" may no longer be true when it comes to traditional paid media investments.
