Cloud Communications on the Horizon

Why should I be considering cloud communications? You would have had to be living in a remote wilderness recently to not have heard of Cloud IT services. The concept is familiar to most people these days as a result of wide-stream media publicity by large technology companies, such as Apple, Google and Microsoft. Furthermore, cloud technology services such as file-sharing, data backup and e-mail have been widely adopted by businesses in recent years due to a greater appreciation of the benefits of cloud rental models.  Managed, highly-available technology services, delivered over fast, reliable Internet connectivity is a more practical and economical option, one that is now increasingly favoured over investment in office-based systems with expensive running costs. By comparison, far fewer people are aware that the same approach can be applied to business telephone communications and, in fact, that innovative and highly developed platforms have been available to deliver this for quite some years. ...

Office 365 - modernise your business

If you have been around the block a bit, and a few of us here at ITbuilder certainly have, then you will have an understanding of how dramatically business technology has changed over the years.

Things got a bit more streamlined at the turn of the century with powerful, yet compact, desktop systems and flat screens that came alive with media-rich content. One of the few constants that has remained during this evolution is Microsoft Office, the family name for Word, Excel and PowerPoint later joined by Outlook, adding new and more innovative ways of making businesses more productive. Today’s modern business looks vastly different to that of ju ...

Business Continuity - safeguard your business' future

  What is Business Continuity and why do I need it? Your business is our business. When you thrive, we thrive and so we take the resilience of your company very, very seriously. This is why we would like to talk to you about a subject very close to our hearts.  Almost without exception, when a business’ IT systems become interrupted, it results in an expensive loss in productivity. Orders aren’t received, contracts aren’t approved, transactions can’t be processed and so on and so forth. For every minute of what is now termed as ‘downtime’, the costs add up and up.  In the equation of IT disasters, cost and time are plotted on X and Y axes respectively with a steep upward curve. In the first few hours of downtime, the cost can be mitigated with excuses and hastily arranged workarounds, but as more time elapses, the higher the price becomes. What started as just delay turns quickly into lost business and, ultimately, into loss of reputation; this is where ...
