Big data is one of the key trends in the world of technology today. The shift from analogue storage (such as paper, film and tapes) to digital storage has meant that it is now easier than ever to hold large quantities of data. Furthermore, as smartphones, cameras and IoT devices (just to name a few sources) gather more information through in-built sensors, the amount of data that is produced on a day-to-day basis also continues to grow. But how can an organisation make sense of all this available data, and use it to its advantage? In this blog post, we will take a closer look at how Amazon Web Services and Microsoft can help.
Comunet have always been proud advocates for cloud computing, but what gives us the greatest sense of satisfaction is seeing how the cloud can deliver benefits to our clients in their day-to-day work. Microsoft’s Office 365 is a great example of this. It is hard to imagine a workplace computer these days without Microsoft’s flagship programs such as Word, Excel or PowerPoint (just to name a few). The introduction of Office 365, however, changed the way that we access and work with these applications. By providing their Office suite on the cloud, Microsoft opened up new possibilities for workplaces. In this post, we want to talk about some of these possibilities and why your organisation should make the switch to Office 365 today.
We have spoken previously about how Comunet can help your organisation against the threat of cybercrime. In this blog post, we wanted to go into more detail about some of the threats that your team members should be aware of. As we often advise our clients, the end user is often the last line of defence in an organisation’s cybersecurity program. By helping your team members understand the threats that exist, you can ensure that this last line remains strong. Here are some of the key threats that your organisation should be on the lookout for.
Many discussions around artificial intelligence (AI) have focused on the new developments in machine learning, such as assisting with cancer recognition and even detecting earthquakes. However, the use of AI in the creation of a virtual assistant is starting to gain some traction. A recent article from VentureBeat stated that 2017 is the year that “virtual assistants really arrived.” In this post, we wanted to look at the rise of virtual assistants and how they could change the way we work.
We have blogged previously about the increasing sophistication of cybercrime and the reality is that cybercriminals can strike from anywhere in the world. That is why Comunet has worked hard to form strong partnerships with some of the world’s leading cybersecurity companies. In doing so, we are able to bring our clients the global best practices for defending their organisations against existing and emerging threats. In this blog post, we wanted to discuss some of Comunet’s partners in the field of cybersecurity and how, in conjunction with these partners, we can help your organisation in this important field.
Today we wanted to start what we hope will be a series of blog posts on a very important topic in the technology industry – cybersecurity. The importance of cybersecurity has only increased in recent years, as cyber criminals become more sophisticated in their approach and the ramifications of such attacks become more significant for organisations that fall victim to such crimes. This is an unfortunate reality, but with the correct approach in place, businesses can ensure they have the necessary strongholds to withstand such attacks. In this post, we wanted to talk about some of the services we offer to our clients to ensure that they have these defences in place.
In the last few weeks, we have been blogging about the various industries that Comunet has been working in. So far, we have covered aviation and manufacturing; both of which provide exciting opportunities for our teams to find innovative solutions. One industry we are very proud to be a part of is healthcare. Of course, we cannot claim to be on the frontline of this industry like all the hard working doctors and nurses who help patients day-to-day! However, we do consider ourselves fortunate to be a technology company that can help these medical professionals perform their work to the very best of their ability. Here are some examples of our contributions.
Working with an organisation in the manufacturing or horticulture industry is always a fresh experience for our team, because we have the opportunity to ask the question “what can be done differently?” As is often the case with many organisations in these industries, processes and practices are underpinned by years of experience. For a technology company such as Comunet, our role is to view operations from a new perspective. This allows us to have a conversation with Engineers, Operations Managers and CEOs about how technology can work with their current processes to elevate outcomes for their customers. In this blog post, we want to share some examples of where these conversations have lead.
Today we wanted to talk about some of the exciting work Comunet have been able to do in the aviation industry, in what we hope will be a series of blog posts focusing on the various industry sectors that we are engaged in. It is interesting to note that Comunet actually has quite a history in the aviation sector, beginning with our affiliated company, Avinet.
Last week, we published a blog post on Comunet’s Vision. The post detailed the key elements that underpin our company’s vision and the reasons why it resonates with us. We wanted to follow-up this previous article with a closer look at Comunet’s Core Values, which are our key operating philosophies that help us deliver on Our Vision. Again, these Values were finalised by our Leadership Team after receiving input from across the entire organisation. Let’s look at each value in turn.
