  • Collaboration and Communication

    This presentation was delivered as part of Collaboration and Communication 2016, an annual event organised by Dennis Publishing. There were a broad range of presenters from many technology vendors, but all echoed the need to focus on people, with user experience and the impact on the business process being key requirements. The collaboration product sector is going through several significant transitions and it is clear that social media, video, mobile and the cloud have all become very important. This presentation takes a look back at how we arrived at the currnet point in the market and a look forward - occasionally tongue-in-cheek - into where collaboration is heading.

  • Industrialisation of IoT and wearable technologies

    This presentation was delivered at an event focussed on emplowering people with technology, hosted by Mitie in conjunction with Samsung and TBS Mobility in July 2016. The event overall considered the impact of consumerisation of technology and how this could be applied to be of benefit in the enterprise working environment. It also included specific examples of how Mitie are testing the use of advanced technology to make apparently straightforward business processes even more efficient - traffic sensors in restroom facilities, with smart analytics advising cleaning operatives via wearable devices where next to target their efforts.

  • The importance of storage

    Most people, when thinking of enterprise storage, will think of SAN and NAS, with a few going as far as DAS.  However, the growth of server-side storage, where specialised flash-based PCIe and M2 cards is leading to a far more complex estate of different non-volatile storage platforms.  Pulling all of these together along with using volatile storage (i.e. DIMM memory) can provide massive improvements in data performance - for little outlay.  This presentation, given by Clive Longbottom at an event with Viadex and PernixData, shows how different storage platforms are positioned in their means to adequately present data to the compute environment in terms of latency, and then looks at what is required to manage a highly complex and heterogeneous storage platform.

  • The Collision of the IoT and the IoE

    Clive Longbottom gave a presentation at SmartIoT London on the 12th April 2016 on how important it is to understand the difference between the IoT (those devices that you have total control over) and the IoE (those devices that you want data from, but have no direct control over).  The slide deck for that presentation is provided here.

  • Wearables and IoT for the enterprise

    There has been a lot of hype about wearable technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT) and how it might impact consumers, but there are areas in enterprise where this innovation is already presenting new opportunitites and perhaps some new threats. Organisations of all sizes need to be taking a closer look.
