Why your AWS infrastructure must be Well Architected

Don’t be fooled by the deceptive ease with which you can get started on the Amazon Web Services cloud. While it is certainly true that you can get stuck in with nothing more than a credit card and a vague idea of what you’re after, it pays to start with sound foundations so that as your needs grow and evolve (as they inevitably do – just about everyone who tries AWS very quickly becomes a big fan of it’s low-cost, high-value services), you don’t end up with a horrendous tangle.

How to adjust your business model for digital transformation

You have heard about it, read articles about it, or are potentially even practicing it today. A relatively new, often misunderstood term, Digital Transformation has become increasingly popular in the business scene.

And it is not going away.

In less than 2 decades, we have seen more than halfof the Fortune 500 companies disappear, whether it be through mergers, acquisitions or bankruptcy. Guess who has replaced them? The businesses that are paving the way in a new digital world - The Facebooks, Amazons, Ubers and Zappos of the world.

Technology has not only happened to us, it has caused a paradigm shift within us (society), and the way we live our lives. Inevitably, it has reached businesses who now struggle to meet the challenges of an aggressive pace of digital disruption, often left at a loss as to where to begin changing. 

As surprising as it may seem, digital transformation starts with people. The biggest change is not about the shifting technology, focusing on customer experiences, or finding the right product set to run a business. Although not easy, these shifts are all doable!

The magic happens when people are able to break through legacy business culture.

As straight forward as this may sound, our leaders are struggling with taking on, supporting, and encouraging digital transformation.

A testimony to this challenge is the way most leadership teams run.

cloud computing Digital Transformation

It is time to quit the relationship with your server. Here’s Why.

That’s right, you need to call time on your relationship with the office server. If it helps, you can promise one another you’ll just be friends, and relegate the server to a minor role on the side. Or go hard, pull the pin completely and shut it down for good.

Admit it, you’ve probably had a few technology love affairs over the years. Was it the iPhone? That shiny new convertible laptop? We might not have been there, but did you brag about impressive specifications just after spending tens of thousands on the new server?

Maybe so, but times have changed and it just doesn’t measure up any longer.

The six ways innovative companies are growing in 2019

These days, there’s a persistent drive for organisations of every type to be innovative. It’s implied every time you hear the term ‘digital disruption’ or ‘digital transformation’. But just what does it mean to be innovative – and is it really necessary for your business?

It’s easy to answer the first part of that question.

‘Innovative’ simply means ‘something new’ and there are multiple opportunities within most businesses to do just that (new processes, experiences, features, customers, products and services, and business models.)

Managing a development project (but not a software developer)? Here's how.

These days, software is everywhere and just about every business relies on software developed specifically for that organisation. You might find yourself in a position where it’s necessary to commission and control the production of some code – a task which can appear Sisyphean because you don’t know much about the process.

Understanding Windows 7 End-of-Support: What is the impact for your business?

Unless you have been living under a rock, or you have more important things to do like run your business, you may have heard that Windows 7 comes out of support from Microsoft in January 14, 2020. Fundamentally, this means it will no longer receive updates from Microsoft, particularly security patches to any vulnerabilities discovered after that support expires next year.

Some of you will be familiar with a similar thing happening with Windows XP a few years ago, and now it is time for Windows 7 to follow suit. Windows 7 came out in 2009 and since then we’ve had 3 major Operating System releases with Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10, and the end-of-support deadline for Windows 7 presents a few opportunities for your business which will be detailed below.

Digital transformation: five essential truths

Think digital transformation, the go-to phrase in recent years, is a new development? Think again. Properly speaking, digitisation began when the first computers were switched on in businesses; machines like UNIVAC 1, Leo and perhaps even Colossus (they really gave those early room-sized devices cool names).
