A few weeks ago, we blogged about why businesses should make the switch to Office 365. One of the core reasons identified in this blog post was that Office 365 provides more opportunities for team members within an organisation to collaborate together on various tasks and projects. Consistent with this philosophy, Microsoft recently introduced a new product in the Office 365 suite called Microsoft Teams. In this blog post, we wanted to show you some of the exciting features about Teams and talk about how it can help your organisation streamline communication across employees.

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.

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.

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.

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.
