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.

Last year the UK continued to lead online sales in Europe as the European online retail sales grew 18 per cent and are predicted to grow 13 per cent this year, reaching €92 billion, according to a five-year forecast from Forrester Research.

Wading through the ‘Green Wash’ to initiate innovation

Posted by Dan Pope on Oct 5, 2009 10:45:09 AM

Prior to my current post at Fluidata I worked for one of the UK’s leading environmental consultancies. Here I helped companies to assess and reduce their carbon emissions. Because of this I am often asked for advice on how to reduce a company’s carbon footprint and frequently the answer I give is to fully utilise our IT services. The fact of the matter is that we cannot continue to run successful organisations if we do not continually update our technologies and reduce our air miles. It seems therefore that we must in fact embrace our capitalist ideology and innovative technology to overcome our outdated habits, replaced instead by new tools such as virtualisation and video conferences.
