Introducing the Cloudcatalyst

How do you get more businesses to sign up for the Cloud? You build confidence, work to minimise fears and work out how it easier to encourage adoption. That’s exactly what a new project is in Europe is designed to do. The Cloudcatalyst is funded by the European Union and has three core targets; to [...]

I Know What You Did Last Summer

July 24th, 2014

Word of warning! You might be a little bit freaked out if you visit the Royal College of Arts this summer. There’s a filing cabinet on the loose following unsuspecting guests around the place. Strange you say? Not ‘alf mate! But there’s a story behind this madness and it goes a little something like this… [...]


July 17th, 2014

The latest cabinet reshuffle is hitting the headlines this week as the Prime Minister chops and changes his core team of ministers at the heart of Downing Street. It’s not unusual for the government to have huge cabinet changes at this point in time, under a year before the next general election. New blood is [...]

The cloud and start-ups; a marriage made in heaven

July 17th, 2014

Setting up a new business is hard work. It’s all-encompassing, time consuming and for the first few heady months money can be tight. Yet the latest figures show that instead of being on the fringes of British business, in fact increasing numbers of individuals are setting up their own companies. The UK’s start-up culture is [...]

We’re all in the cloud

July 10th, 2014

There’s no excuse anymore. You officially can’t say that you’re not in the cloud because “no one else is” or because “you’re waiting to see how it pans out”. Cloud computing is, officially, part of business IT. The Cloud Industry Forum asked 250 senior IT and businesses about how they’re using the cloud, if they [...]

Happy talk

July 3rd, 2014

Andy Murray is out, finished, kaput. All Wimbledon hopes for a repeat of last year, dashed. Not just that, Glastonbury’s over and done with and I don’t want to be a doom monger or anything, but it’s going to rain at the weekend. Hope you don’t mind my gloomy post this week listeners, but frankly [...]

Making the Cloud more public

June 26th, 2014

The Cloud isn’t just about startups and tech whizzes, it can benefit the public sector as well. When we think about innovation in technology we do tend to think of young hipsters working in creative surroundings focused on having the next big idea that will make them billions. In fact, technological innovation isn’t – and [...]

Email top tips

June 26th, 2014

Whilst skiving off work one day this week I found myself (as per usual) arriving at a certain national, left leaning newspaper’s comprehensive website full of fascinating articles and stories not to mention, the latest news.
