In today’s business world, it really doesn’t matter how large or small your company is, or what industry it is in; the company has some sort of IT being used.

Many companies actually rely on strong IT in order to conduct their everyday business. So, what happens if it seems like your business is suffering from a high number of IT issues? If it seems as though they are constant and there is one thing after another, there’s a good chance your IT needs some attention. IT that has constant issues interrupts workflow and production and can end up costing the business money due to downtime and mistakes. Here are some ways that you can t......

What Are Remote Telemetry Units And How Do They Work?

While you may not have heard of remote telemetry units (RTUs), these contemporary devices are becoming increasingly commonplace in a host of industries including telecoms, IT and logistics. These devices also embody the principles that underpin the Internet of Things (IoT), as their essentially smart units that collate and transmit large swathes of data in real-time. Let’s clarify the precise definition of RTUs and its underlying technology, while also asking how they work. What Are Remote Telemetry Units? Quite simply, an RTU is a smart device that monitors and reports real-time events as they occur at a remote site. This enables project and network managers to oversee multiple sites simultaneously, regardless of their purpose or geographical location. There are also different types......

How RPA Will Be A Developer’s Best Friend

Today’s successful businesses find ways to implement cost reduction and efficiency without sacrificing business objectives. With the growth of automation services and more businesses turning to computers and software programs to perform administrative tasks, the emergence of robotic process automation (RPA) has introduced a tool that is positioned to exponentially change business processes. RPA is growing consistently, making its way deeper into the administrative areas of many businesses. While it is true that this technology is essentially leading to fewer necessary personnel, when used correctly RPA has the ability to alleviate menial tasks and free up time for staff to work on bigger-picture items. Software developers, and the companies that purchase RPA software, are realising the tan......

5 Ways AI Will Transform The Enterprise In 2018

The terms machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) have become buzzwords across the globe, particularly among forward-thinking business leaders. Yet, despite these technologies’ promising benefits, few organisations have actually been taking full advantage of them. That is likely to change this year, however, with Gartner projecting that 2018 will officially mark the beginning of the “democratisation” of AI. One of the biggest driving forces behind this transformation is the growing realisation that the collection and analysis of data has become an essential component of success in the digital age. Furthermore, there is an increasing awareness that despite the massive volume of data available, many organisations still aren’t putting that information to productive use. Artificial i......

Why Data Centres Are A Critical Link In The Blockchain

For the financial sector, IT is no longer simply a business necessity – it is the business. In the face of unstoppable digital innovation, agile IT is essential to support new strategies, keep pace with the competition and harness emerging opportunities. Today, the pace of change is faster than ever. New technologies are disrupting every aspect of the financial sector. For high-street banks, customer satisfaction now turns on 24/7 online banking, as well as seamless mobile and contactless payments. In high frequency trading, low latency connectivity is the lifeblood of profitability – with even microseconds creating competitive advantage. Meanwhile, a glut of agile FinTech companies – like PayPal, ApplePay and Oscar – are rewriting the rulebook on lending, payments, insurance and man......

Elevating IT’s Role Within The Business

The digital transformation wave is causing widespread change across businesses in all industries, with the creation of new business models, revenue streams and innovative services. Leveraging the capabilities of modern technology is now a question of survival. The world is full of examples of businesses that have been slow to adapt and got behind the curve of innovation and slowed the pace of growth. Equally, those that have risen to the top after finding a way to exploit the potential of ‘digital,’ the most popular examples being the likes of Netflix and Airbnb. Rising consumer expectations, combined with increased competition and rapid technological advancements, have led to an environment where if you think you’re standing still, you’re probably actually falling behind. This means organ......

Big Data Management In 2018

Data volumes across businesses of all sizes are growing at an average of 40% per annum, and IDC predicts that worldwide, this will almost double every two years – between now and 2020. This trend is presenting real challenges for IT departments, as they are spending an inordinate amount of time and money on their storage infrastructures. Rather than fire fighting data growth, new approaches are required, so valuable IT resources can be liberated to develop and implement business solutions – which drive productivity and have a positive impact on the bottom line. Influencing Factors There are many trends, such as BYOD and the consumerisation of IT, that are driving exponential data growth, as they’re creating increased user expectations – which demand  ever-present, information a......

The Innovative Technology Behind The Health Sector

The health sector is under constant pressure and faces challenges like never before. Growing numbers of patients combined with a lack of funding mean that continuing to provide a premium service puts enormous strain on the individuals who are on the frontline. There may, however, be some light at the end of the tunnel for the health sector and here we examine how innovative technology is helping it shine. How Patients Access The Service The way the public access healthcare is starting to change dramatically and this is down to the way the health sector is beginning to use the internet and other communication technology such as mobile phones. For example, the National Health Service (NHS) now has an app library that can be accessed by anyone. The library holds a catalogue of “digital tools”......

How IT Support Can Determine The Growth Of A Small Business

The constant reliance on technology may not always be obvious to end users, who see applications and online services as an extension of themselves, but businesses in all fields need stable systems in order to operate. No matter how advanced your tech might be, something can always go wrong, from a crashed server to a buggy system update. When that happens, your entire operations can be affected and the danger is even higher for small businesses, which don’t have the staff, budget and expertise of Fortune 500 companies. Although the first solution that comes to mind when dealing with these cases is having a dedicated internal IT department, this is not the most cost-effective idea for small businesses. At the same time, not including IT support on your list of priorities is a huge mistake a......

BYOD Brilliance: Optimising Applications For End-User Devices

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies are the norm for many enterprise organisations today. The familiarity that comes with allowing employees to work using their preferred device and operating system can offer significant benefits for productivity – not to mention the financial savings that can be made by removing the need for an organisation to purchase expensive hardware. But despite the clear benefits for users, BYOD can pose a significant challenge to IT departments in terms of providing a quality user experience across company networks – IT is tasked with offering an excellent mobile user experience on a device it doesn’t own. The good news is, this challenge is far from insurmountable. It is possible to provide excellent application performance for users even when they are acc......

IT In Health: Smart Hospitals That Rely On Tech For Better Healthcare

These solutions range from those that are intended to bring improvements to the management department to those that directly assist doctors when providing healthcare. Let’s explore the role of IT in healthcare and what are the ways IT can advocate changes towards building a network of smart hospitals. Blockchain Technology Blockchain technology is not only for cryptocurrencies. In fact, by now, it has been implemented in numerous industries and for various purposes. In layman’s terms, blockchain enables peer-to-peer communication and it stores data in data blocks which are kept in a digital ledger. Hospitals are already considering the implementation of this tech when track......

Understanding The Tax Implications Of An LLC

Have you decided that a limited liability corporation (LLC) is the best structure for your business? Before moving forward, it’s vital to have a thorough understanding of the tax implications of this particular business structure. This allows you to make the necessary preparations for filing the proper documents and taking advantage of the tax benefits afforded by an LLC. Why Set Up An LLC? One of the primary reasons why business owners go for LLCs is because this structure offers adequate protection for their personal assets. Basically, your personal property cannot be seized by banks and other lenders in case your company accumulates bad debts. This holds true unless you sign a personal guarantee to finance your new company. Another advantage is that an LLC allows owners to enjoy lower t......
