It’s an old axiom: Technology companies tend to focus on their offering rather than the people using it.

Our Amazon Web Services (AWS) Customer Success Program enables our customers to take full advantage of the cloud while removing as much complexity as possible.

The cloud and rising to the challenge

Article | April 16, 2020

In a very short space of time, the coronavirus outbreak has completely transformed how organisations across all sectors operate. With lockdown restrictions rolling out across the globe, those organisations have moved quickly to instruct their staff to work from home in a bid to halt the spread of the Covid-19 infection.The nature of the IT industry will mean many of its businesses and employees will have remote working experience, but that isn’t the same across the board. According to March 2020 research from the Office of National Statistics (ONS), only 30% of UK employees ever worked from home during 2019. For many, the change has been sharp and abrupt, and brought with it significant challenges for both the workforce and the IT infrastructure required to support it.Due to the rapidly unfolding pace of the Covid-19 pandemic, CIOs have had little time to test the robustness of their business continuity strategy. However, the demands of the workforce will remain the same, with remote staff expecting the same resources and applications from home as they would if they were still operating out of a central office. Making sure that IT infrastructures can cope with the surge in demand for access to on-premise and cloud platforms from remote locations is key in the coming months.

Think of a time, when you have used a map to find a café for your family dinner. Or perhaps, you used it to look for a newly opened fashion store in your neighborhood. Working with location technology day in and out, I am fascinated by the journey of maps- from paper to a tap on the phone. I have never been more energized by the growth of these location technologies having an impact on our daily lives, the way we work and interact. The beauty of maps, however, is that they can be used in a variety of forms, beyond just navigating roads and finding landmark buildings. Location mapping and technologies, as companies are now finding out, is helping businesses small and large across the world, to combine geography with business intelligence, thus enabling them to make faster and efficient business decisions.

How to leverage the value of edge network opportunities

Article | February 17, 2020

The network computing chain faces a changing reality over the coming years. According to the latest version of the Ericsson Mobility Report, a surge in consumer device capabilities and data-intensive content will see global data traffic rise fourfold by 2025. Industries, entering the fray for the first time, will place ultra-low-latency and high-privacy demands on the network through time-critical and massive-data use cases such as autonomous transport, remote robotics, smart factories and cross reality.In all of these cases, the place at which the data is processed whether it be in a centralized data center or at the edge of cloud will have an immense impact on both latency and how the massive amounts of data are managed. Not only do these factors impact enterprise and network efficiency, but they will soon be critical in safeguarding human life.
