The Importance of Great People in Tech and Software

So we choose a life at university with the notion of obtaining a degree in our chosen field of study and gain buckets of life changing experience’s throughout the journey. There are more first times during both our next and most significant chapter of our lives at university than ever before. These become character changing (not always building) and personally develop our thoughts and feelings towards work and ultimately, a career.

Topics:

Does this mean we're engaged?!

Engagement & perspective. Two of my favourite words.

Joining such a specialist tech co 3.5 years ago, filled a marketeer like myself with professional insecurities. "What is SVN?" "Selenium tests - how do they work?" "Which environment are we testing on before a deploy - our UAT or theirs?" had been uttered (some say screeched yet I firmly disagree) by myself on numerous occasions in the early stages of my tech career.

How can you have an Open Source SAAS intranet?

It may seem odd that a company with such a rich heritage in open source would launch a SAAS service.  Some would even incorrectly think this is at odds with the whole open source ethos.

In order for Open Source to be truly successful it must have commercial models behind it that support the community and investments needed to make it as good and better than the alternative proprietary offerings.

Ambient Workplaces: The Future of Work

Removing constraints within the workplace brings with it massive opportunities and new challenges for employee engagement.

With the advent of the internet of things we start to look at a world and work environment where systems are helping us in ways that we don't notice anymore. It’s become all surrounding and almost invisible.

SME's disrupting UK Government

The Cabinet Office, with the support of most Government departments has made a conscious decision to move away from massive contracts with massive SI's. The fear of change that existed as a result of conscious effort to introduce FUD by the BIG SI’s is being broken apart and shown for what it is, complete utter nonsense. The reality is that the examples they cite are either edge cases or failures by Big SI’s themselves. SME’s don’t want to deliver, they need to deliver.

What exactly is an intranet these days anyway?

Do we still call intranets ‘intranets’? Should we?

I suppose it rolls off the tongue easier than ‘collaborative communications application’. And it’s better than simply tacking the word ‘social’ to the front of the word ‘intranet’ to make it very now.
