5G – Unlocking The Data Opportunity

Data | Digital Evolution | Technology

The debate about 5G is now mainstream and we’ve referred to it a number of times in this blog feed, and although the discussion often focuses on the technology, the associated issue of importance is data, and how we’ll use it to transform our world. Self-driving cars, for example, are regularly referred to when illustrating […]

Data Management Partners you can Trust in the Digital Age


For most of us, the trials and tribulations of everyday family life are enough to cope with without consciously adding to the list of things to think (or worry) about. Maybe that’s why the main driver of consumer behaviour is cognitive dissonance or the desire to avoid anything which makes us uncomfortable with any decision […]

Legal Algorithms Don’t Help When Systems Resilience Fails

AI | Change | IT Infrastructure | Legal

I read an article this week on BBC News about court trials that had to be adjourned because court IT systems could not be accessed. The Chairman of the Criminal Bar Association was quoted as saying that the courts’ computer systems were “crumbling”. To be brutally honest, this didn’t really surprise me – it was […]

The Internet of ‘Things’ or ‘Thinks’?

Change | Cloud | Data | Digital Evolution | IoT | IT Infrastructure | Technology

IoT usually means “Internet of Things” and is often thought of as a separate niche that is off doing its own thing, without many implications for us in the mainstream. 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, […]

Data Management – An Operational Headache or Business Opportunity?

Business Management | Data | IT Industry | IT Infrastructure | Legislation

How seriously do you and your colleagues take data management? Is it viewed simply as an operational necessity that you, perhaps, offload to the IT team or is the innovative use of data far more exciting for it to be treated like this?

It’s said that business is all about making decisions before someone else makes them for you. Our days are spent working on decisions: ones we need to make now, ones we know we will have to make, and finding ways of coping with decisions we’re stuck with. Some decisions seem obvious and easy – there’s […]

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.

Leaving Digital Security to Someone else – Can we Trust Alexa?

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 […]

Has the way we buy IT Changed?

Change | Digital Evolution | IT Industry | IT Infrastructure

The Past Few would contest the observation that the IT industry has changed. How we buy, develop and implement technology solutions has altered. In the past, most organisations had extensive internal IT teams that were masters of all they surveyed. They would source IT from a range of suppliers and then implement, largely, custom built, […]
