The Days of Getting Online are Over

Robert Mason described it well. He said that when his flying instructor first gave him control of the pedals, the machine started swinging about wildly, and he hadn’t done anything! So true. You’d think that flying can’t be that much of a challenge, but it is, especially helicopters. My instructor gave me a stern talking […]

Cloud | IT Infrastructure | Managed Services | MSP

Could the way you implement Cloud infrastructure help or hinder your customer service ambition? If it wasn’t already clear, a recent report from ISG Insights confirms that: ‘UK enterprises are realizing the power of Cloud services and solutions to address consumer needs.’ And although much of the discussion about Cloud adoption is dominated by large […]

The Direction of Travel – Trends or Journeys?

Change | Cloud | Digital Evolution | IT Industry | IT Infrastructure | MSP

The thing about trends is that it’s never certain where they’re going to end up. If it was they would be journeys, not trends.

The projects I’ve been working on in payments and with other customers’ businesses, have highlighted the scale of the implications across the digital world which, […]

It’s said that business is all about making decisions before someone else makes them for you.

Now Cloud Computing is Mainstream how Should IT Strategies Evolve?

Cloud | Digital Evolution | IT Industry

The term Cloud computing can sometimes still be misunderstood or its meaning confused. However, the use of services that do not reside on a server in a company’s own data centre (DC) or on the laptop of a user sitting at home are now mainstream.

AI | Change | Cloud | Digital Evolution | Security

We might forgive those who have decided to avoid reading the newspapers or to find something, and often anything else, to watch rather than the TV news in their attempts to reduce the amount of negativity in the orbit of their world. It’s hardly a long term strategy that’s destined to keep anyone sufficiently involved […]
