A Golden Bay company has removed clothing items with images of Hindu deity Ganesh off its website after a complaint from the Universal Society of Hinduism.

Mariposa Clothing, based in Takaka, also apologised to anyone who felt offended by the items.

“Mariposa has removed the pants this morning,” Mariposa Clothing’s Tracey Brignole told the Herald this morning.

Agile is changing software development. Here’s how one company made the switch

Digital transformation is highly prized but poorly understood. While more than two-thirds (69%) of directors want their organisations to accelerate digital business initiatives, as many as 80% of IT leaders fail when they try and change their organisations for the better.

The best way to deliver digital transformation success, suggests Joe Soule, CTO at Capital One Europe, is to build Agile, cross-business teams that work to build creative solutions to customer challenges.
