Google Workspace Migration (G-suite)

Even before the astonishing events of the past year, cloud computing had firmly established itself as the future of computing, for a number of reasons. Cloud computing refers to services (apps) and storage that exist in the “cloud”, i.e. in the servers of a third party, rather than on a company server or on the […]

Change Management

One of the biggest challenges for any organisation is to implement change. It is also one of the most contentious areas of company management: poorly explained or poorly implemented changes lead to a resentful and demotivated workforce that feels its needs have not been properly addressed and are being subsumed to the demands of the […]

Refreshingly Unrefreshing

Not, as it might appear, a slogan for a new nighttime sleep-assisting beverage, but a reference to the predilection of both companies and individuals continuously to refresh their technology without actually considering whether it is necessary. Do you have a “that drawer” in your kitchen?  I’m sure you do, a sort of elephant’s graveyard of […]

The Technology at the End of the Tunnel

As the planet staggers into the second year of living with the novel coronavirus, all hope for a relatively swift return to normal is being pinned on the prospect of mass vaccination. It appears clear that herd immunity was a chimera and that the virus is not going to simply peter out as some do, […]

Thinking Deeply

Since the invention of the first computers, a primary goal of scientists and developers has been to create a machine that is capable of learning and thinking autonomously from experiences presented to it. Any computer capable of doing this would clearly, provided with modern supercomputer processing power, soon be able to outthink the brightest humans. […]

Living on the Edge

It’s an extraordinary thought that when you make a request of the Internet, it’s quite likely that it travels halfway around the world and back to you within the blink of an eye; try sending yourself an email and it will appear in your inbox virtually instantaneously with you clicking “send”, despite the fact that […]

Rise of the Robots; Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

For centuries, scientists, philosophers, fiction writers and others have mused upon the possibility, and possible outcomes, of introducing robotics into our daily lives. Some have seen this as a positive, removing the need for much of our daily drudgery (see C3PO and R2-D2), some have been ambivalent, viewing it as a positive that could turn […]

Intelligent Mobile Apps – The New Face of the Mobile Industry

It’s become apparent that the mobile device in your pocket is X* times more powerful than all the computers used to get Apollo 11 to the moon and back. It’s certainly true that the average iPhone is, by certain measures, 100,000 times more powerful than all the computers NASA used in 1969. Although there are […]

Are You Ready to Live Life on the Edge?

As computing technology became part of our lives, the mainframe computer was created. This held all the processing power and all the data, and users accessed it through a “dumb” terminal. Next came the PC, the complete opposite, where all processing power and data storage took place within the box on your desk or, later, […]
