What do the states' unemployment numbers tell us?

August 19th, 2016

What do the states' unemployment numbers tell us?

The state unemployment numbers cannot really tell us about the state of the overall job market.  First the numbers are "constantly" being adjusted by individuals that have an agenda that is not in all cases pure.  For example in July 2016, the data that was reported said that unemployment rates were significantly higher in 7 states, lower in 3 states, and stable in 40 states and the District of Columbia. Nonfarm payroll employment increased in 15 states, decreased in Kansas, and was essentially unchanged in 34 states and the District. 

No where in that presentation is the fact the overall labor force participation is a 62.8% (saying that 94 plus million individuals are permanently out of the labor force). That would make overall unemployment number well over 12%.

High unemployment states July 2016

The only fact that is clear from the data is the Nevada has been a high unemployment state for over 8 years.

4th Industrial Revolution

July 26th, 2016

4th Industrial RevolutionCIOs have been inundated with the potential and the rapid pace of innovation in technology. This is referred to as the 4th Industrial Revolution, and it can be more accurately described as the ‘Hurricane of Innovation’. Janco terms this as the ‘Age of the Customer’ and the imperative for customer obsession to be successful . Never before have we seen this level of innovation intensity. Almost every company is experimenting with the potential, and sometimes it is about finding the diamonds in the ‘data’. Data is now the next platform which provides insight, intelligence, and ability to create new platforms for a company and industry. Connecting data with IoT, and in many cases machine learning is proving to be a winning formula. The business value and realization of digitization is in progress, and now we have real world examples of new business models and potential revenues for traditional companies. Digital disruption is here and it is real.

Feds look to increase cybersecurity spending by $19 billion

CybersecurityThe administration is seeking to boost federal cybersecurity spending. Its 2017 IT budget calls for a 35% increase in cybersecurity spending to $19 billion.

Victor Janulaitis, CEO of Janco Associates, a research firm that analyzes IT labor trends, said the "government is not always the solution.

"Rather the solution needs to be in the private sector where what can be done will be done and real jobs will be created," said Janulaitis. "The solution of 'thousands' of new government employees only adds to our deficit and governmental bloat," he said.
