The past year’s shift to remote working has been challenging and rewarding. It has also created unprecedented pressure to deliver more from IT budgets.
In this post I’ll explore some of the ways IT leaders and managers can meet these new demands, while also investing wisely for the future.
Being an IT manager was a very different career before the advent of cloud-based services. When it came to adding or replacing infrastructure, you had only one option: buy the latest hardware or software.
So, IT would receive its budget and go off and buy the biggest and best kit it could.
As edge environments become more critical to business success, maintaining the power, cooling and management needs should be top of mind.
With more people working remotely, end users must have faster access to critical information. Edge environments move that critical information closer to the end user, thus making them more efficient. This is the same concept streaming services use to distribute content to their users.
Automation is one of the hottest trends in IT right now, for good reason. We all know that it can cut out some of the more tedious work involved in data centre management – but far more exciting is the way it can enable software development to proceed at a pace that would have been unthinkable a few years ago.
In this blog post, I explore what’s driving automation and how organisations can reap the most benefit.
The frontline of retail - your shop-floor staff - have had to step up in 2020 like never before. Which means they've needed seamless, reliable digital workspace solutions more than ever.
One of the great paradoxes of technology is that the more successful it is, the more invisible it becomes.
Car technology is a case in point. Let me tell you a story to back up my thinking.
Don’t trust anyone - that’s the basic premise for an advanced approach to cyber security that is being increasingly deployed across forward-thinking organisations.
Cloud technology is nothing new. In fact, today’s largest cloud platform provider, Amazon Web Services, was founded way back in 2006 – just a year after YouTube.
Since those early days, cloud has made businesses’ IT infrastructure more flexible, powered remote working, and helped many organisations adapt to change – especially this year. These benefits have, however, created significant hype and cloud now dominates the IT conversation like nothing else.
