What exactly is the difference between systems engineering and IT implementations? Is there mostly a focus on custom built applications?

May be an issue partially of terminology but systems engineering is more like business analytics/business process management

I'm sure that there's a really related term that means what you're thinking, or that this term means multiple things

Yeah that could be the issue. My lead on a project has suggested I look into systems engineering courses and the main reason I’m making a connection is because of my history of IT implementations. This is my first engagement where we are building a custom app on top of multiple different systems and integrating them. It’s interesting and if the title “systems engineer” gets me out of point and click implementations I want to explore it.

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP)
Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

New to crypto , want to sanity check 2 things:
1) Going to put 10k into ETH (despite dip). My attitude is treat this as money I plan to part with; don't think about it until 2-5 years and don't get scared with more dips... right?
2) Coinbase vs Robinhood: I still don't get the "ownership" element. I can avoid fees by using RH, but I don't fully "own" crypto. Apart from security, is there a financial consequence? Will fewer people buy my crypto on RH in the future bc it's not "owned"?

Etiquette question - my company is flying me out to England in October for a week ( the week of the 3rd) and paying for my flights. I’ll be training new teammates and be in day long meetings the whole time. Is it a faux pas for me to use PTO and extend that Europe stay for a few days to explore London on my own time? Or since they’re flying me out and I have to get home anyway, is it ok?
