We want to help your business refocus on the things that matter most and use technology to take care of as much of the rest as possible, when you get it right it will make your life easier and your business more profitable.
We provide businesses with different solutions, depending on which types of problems they need solving. Typically this falls into one of two camps:
- For Software Companies, or development teams, we can help you conquer legacy code, deliver new features and squash bugs, improve your workflows and get the best out of your existing code and your team.
- For Other Businesses we can assist in digital transformation: getting technology to work for you to save you time and money.
As I think I’ve probably mentioned before, I like to try and use technology to simplify my life. I’ve always got some sort of project on the go and there’s one particular task that has risen to the top of this list; I need to tackle all that paperwork that keeps piling up.
I thought this particular issue might be of interest to some of my readers and customers, so I’m going to document the project on this site. I hate trying to keep track of all the paperwork that comes through the door, all those little things that either are important or might be one day. Quite frankly I’m a hoarder by nature, so I want to keep everything; my mantra is “just in case”. Trying to store and organise every letter, invoice, receipt or anything else that might be important is a bit of a difficult task. I’d love to go paperless, but that seems to be one of those dreams we haven’t quite achieved (see also Is technology our helper?).Read more...
It’s fascinating to look back on predictions made and to see how close they were, particularly when those predictions relate to technology. When we look at the predictions made in the 50s, we see a hugely optimistic view of how technology was going to advance at a phenomenal rate and help us all to spend less time working and enjoy our lives more and more. When we look at any utopian views of the future we often see signs of a post-scarcity economy, one where nobody has to work or worry about money (for example Rick Webb wrote a great article about how this works in Star Trek). Even as recently as the 1980s it was believed that by now we would have flying cars to transport us and robots to help improve our lives. So what’s gone wrong? I’ll answer that with another question: has something gone wrong?Read more...
Sometimes it can be hard to choose the right technology for the job, there’s a lot of factors at play there. You might need to take into consideration what technology is already available; where your new hardware or software needs to fit with the existing; whether this is a hardware change, a software change or both; how much money you have to spend; whether you really need a change or not. The list goes on.
The temptation can be to always pick the new shiny, regardless of cost; others might stick to the tried and tested, even when there are known weaknesses. Whilst many people stick to one route or the other, there is, of course, a wide expanse of grey area between them. It’s in the navigation of that grey area where I believe I can help the most.Read more...
