Year in Review

Posted by Dan Pope on Dec 31, 2013 5:23:23 PM

Upon reflection, 2013, feels less of a momentous year than previous ones, both inside and outside of our industry. It wasn't sprinkled with the added piquancy a London Olympics brings, it wasn't a year of new products launches or technologies. The 'cloud' continued to gather pace, to a point where it has now entered the mainstream. 'Big Data' and the 'Internet of things' progressed from new fangled industry terms to something more tangible; where their impact can be observed and understood by everyday users. They could soon be developments that change everyday lives - with Allseen Alliance close to establishing an open source framework capable of connecting almost anything to the Internet. BYOD exploded; with 7/10 employees now using their own devices.

Riots spur companies to review disaster recovery

Posted by Dan Pope on Aug 25, 2011 12:42:51 PM

Two weeks ago, with the skyline of London and other cities across the UK slowly filling with the black smoke of burning cars and buildings, many were speculating about how much damage the riots would cause - both economically and socially. We often think about the immediate effects of the damage, i.e. loss of destroyed or looted stock, reduction in trading hours, but it seems that some of our retail clients  and SME’s were also considering the cost of losing corporate data in such an event.

In the middle of the Information Age

Posted by Dan Pope on Feb 28, 2011 10:32:06 AM

Recent client meetings have illustrated to me how far work practices and methods have progressed in a very short period time and how the ‘information age’ as the experts term it, continues to accelerate at frightening pace.

The cloud can do many things

Posted by Dan Pope on Jun 3, 2010 8:50:51 AM

Cloud computing is the current ‘buzzword’ in the industry, exciting in premise, but still in its infancy and awash with ambiguities.
