Robert Deignan is the CEO and one of the founders at ATS Digital Services, a company that offers digital assistance to its customers who are scattered all over the world. The company’s digital support ranges from general troubleshooting, connectivity issues among many others.
Deignan grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he attended St. Thomas Aquinas High School. He later received a football scholarship to study at Purdue University where he graduated with a degree in Business management. Robert co-founded Fanlink Inc. after spending a short spell as a football player at NY Jets and Miami Dolphins in 1998 and 1997 respectively. He currently stays with his family in Miami.
Robert used the experience and knowledge earned from his previous job in a software company to start ATS Digital Services. While working there, Robert and his colleagues encountered difficulties in installing anti-malware products into machines owned by users. With time, they discovered the people who always blocked their efforts to do the installation and found a solution thereafter. They used one of their digital support agents to remotely link up with the user’s machine and remove the malware that blocked the installation of the software.
This strategy led to a massive customer satisfaction at the company and increased their trust in the brand. Together, they realized they could make money from successfully blocking the malware as well as ensuring that the computers are in good condition. When he later left the Anti-Malware Company, Robert tapped into this experience to help in the establishment of ATS Digital Services.
Speaking to Gazetteday, Robert highlighted some of the tips that have been key in his successful business career: First, Robert Deignan urges people to always trust their gut feeling when making both big and small decisions. According to him, doing something that feels right to you will always be well with you even if difficulties are experienced. Second, he advises people to always hire for culture, employers should strive to not only look at the academic qualification of an employee but whether the candidate meets the job requirements. Sometimes, highly intelligent employees turn out to be the bad ones.
To say that the tech world is moving quickly would be an understatement. We are seeing massive changes in our day-to-day lives on an almost daily basis thanks to the work that is being done by talented professionals throughout the world. Jason Hope is one of those professionals that is helping to usher in a new era of technological advancement. Hope is a renowned futurist, a technological entrepreneur, and he carries an MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business. To put this all simply, Hope is here to help usher in a change so let’s go ahead and see where it is he is trying to guide us. You can find Jason Hope on Twitter @JasonHope for latest updates.
Jason Hope was born and raised in Arizona. He attended school at Arizona State University where he knocked out his finance degree. Hope would then go on to graduate from the W.P. Carey School of Business with his MBA. With degrees in hand, Hope would waste no time getting started in the entrepreneurial world. Before most of his former classmates could blink, Hope had successfully founded a mobile communications company that proved vital in the industry. Now, with successes under his belt, Hope is angling to bring about change that will last long after he has retired. But where is Jason Hope focusing his efforts?
As a futurist, there are two areas that will always be fascinating: the internet and biotechnology. For that reason, Hope’s focus is currently resting on two major concepts: the role of biotechnology in helping to find cures for aging and the role that the internet will play in our day-to-day lives as smart technology continues to develop. Let’s quickly take each concept point-by-point.
Like many other futurists, Jason Hope doesn’t necessarily believe that aging has to be intrinsic to the human experience. In fact, promising advancements in the biotechnology field by facilities like the SENS Foundation prove that changes could be coming sooner than later. Hope believes so strongly in the SENS Foundation that he personally signed off on a $500,000 donation to their work.
Regarding the role of the internet in our future, Jason Hope knows that the Internet of Things will be the next great advancement that humanity takes. The Internet of Things insists that the internet will become such an ingrained part of our lives that we are always connected to it, thus making our lives easier and more efficient as a result.
There are a lot of construction projects in Brazil that are frozen in place. One study, “Great works stopped: how to face the problem?” pegs this number at 2,796 as of the end of 2017. 517 of these are public works projects such as those building sanitation or roads. The cost of these stopped projects is R $ 10.7 billion according to Felipe Montoro Jens, one of Brazil’s top infrastructure project experts.
It is sanitation that is the public works area most affected, Felipe Montoro Jens says. 447 of these type of projects are paralyzed. Also affected are waterways, ports, railway, airports, highways, and urban mobility works. These projects consume resources from the public coffers that don’t generate any benefits at all for Brazilian society. The main issue is the way that the public sector goes about working on projects which is ill thought out and disorganized. More about of Felipe at ideamensch.com
Felipe Montoro Jens says that even simpler projects are held up in purgatory. He points to preschools, sports facilities, and day-care centers as ones that are stalled even though they are not that complex or expensive to finish. The study he cites says that there are issues at play such as financial difficulties, expropriation, and mistakes made in who owns the land the project is being built upon.
Another problem is that small companies were working on a number of these construction projects. Felipe Montoro Jens says that once the economy hit a recession these small companies didn’t have the resources to carry on the work and then abandoned it. As for what to do about all of this, those in the public sector need to plan better, provide teams more resources to do their jobs, create more balanced contracts, and strengthen internal control in order to prevent waste and fraud. Unfortunately, Brazil never seems to learn from these types of studies and so the problems continue.

Ad fraud has become so rampant in the recent years but the good news is that many people have opened their eyes to these kind of fraud and activist are not getting tired of calling out these fraudsters either. One stern short activist, Sahm Adrangi , early this year had an amazing presentation on the same at the Kase Learning during a conference on short selling.
So how does ad fraud occur? Sam explains that hackers manipulate computers to click on your ad displays to create a substantial amount of clicks, impressions, and conversations instead of having actual humans who are the targeted customers click on your ads. This means that there is no actual ROI for a company investing in online ads. According to Sahm Adrangi,the more the ad frauds occur the less the advertising buyers are going to spend on online ads thus missing out on revenue from legitimate publishers.
So what is making it slow for all the interested parties to act? Sahm believes that all these parties that are supposed to be fighting against ad fraud do benefit and that is why they are slow. The ad agencies, ad exchanges, and the advertising companies all do benefit in a way, he insists.
This ad fraud takes so many forms, Sam adds, there is click fraud that occurs in paper click, there is click online ads and then there are fake websites with no content but have lots of traffic. All they do is use the same traffic for different ads. There is also ad tagging and stuffing where an ad is hidden behind a certain ad which the clients don’t see but see the video only but once they click, it reflects as an ad click.
In all these ad frauds, the ultimate loser is the ad buyer, concludes Sahm. Therefore it is high time that they work together with the activists to put all these frauds to an end. Otherwise, they will never really realize the economic value of online advertising.
About Sahm Adrangi
Sahm Adrangi is the Founder and CIO of Kerrisdale Capital Management which was launched in 2009. Sahm’s highest achievement has been exposing the fraudulent Chinese companies and has since been keen on short seller activism
