There are many measures used in determining the most technologically advanced cities, with some focusing on technologies that assist business, others on technologies associated with government, and still more that focus on how accessible technology is to the region’s population. Information and communication technologies are important factors in these measures, both of which are essential to the success of many businesses, especially those – small and large – that operate in today’s global business landscape.
Learning from Seattle
This northwestern city ranks number one on many lists of the nation’s most technologically advanced cities because retail giant Amazon and Microsoft are based here. These two companies, naturally, are hugely tech reliant and Seattle has been referred to as “the next Silicon Valley” by Canada’s Connected Rogers Magazine. That’s not just because of Amazon and Microsoft, but also because of the number of new tech industries choosing Seattle.
These new industries can face quite a struggle when it comes to competing for tech talent in the face of stiff competition for the best and brightest. And, naturally, there is a tech sort of solution for the situation -applicant tracking systems complemented by solid recruitment tracking software. Using such efficient and affordable solutions can help recruitment efforts significantly by aiding in the location of specially skilled, promising individuals and tracking efforts and progress at luring them into the business fold. One thing to learn from such technologically advanced cities as Seattle is that, when used correctly, technology can be the great equalizer.
