Back in March, we wrote a blog post about how AI Assistants are fast becoming the new productivity tool in workplaces. In this post, we mentioned how Amazon’s Echo and Echo Dot devices are key examples of voice-enabled devices that are leading this charge. Little did we know at the time that Amazon were preparing for the release of a new addition to the Echo range – the Echo Show. The Show was launched in May and has already received favourable reviews from the likes of Wired and Endgadget. Essentially, the Show is an Echo device which comes with a 7in touchscreen (slightly smaller than the screen size of an iPad Mini). This opens up a range of possibilities for Echo’s underlying Alexa technology to be used for both home and workplace use. Indeed, being the early-adopters that we are, Comunet recently received an Echo Show device to use in our own office! In this blog post, we want to discuss the business applications of the Echo Show and how it can improve your organisation’s productivity.
In 2017, the iPhone celebrated its 10th birthday. It was introduced by Apple on June 29 2007, and with the launch came the arrival of the first iOS. Over past ten years, this mobile operating system has evolved over multiple versions, with the latest (iOS 11) expected to arrive in the third quarter of 2017. This upcoming release has already generated much publicity about how it will change the way we use our Apple mobile devices (particularly iPads). In today’s blog post, we want to have a closer look at the features that are generating this anticipation.
These days, it is hard to imagine our lives without apps. Whether we are using these applications on our smartphone, desktop computer or through a web browser, apps have the ability to streamline and simplify various processes for an organisation’s customers and employees. But how do organisations streamline and simplify the app creation process itself? In this latest addition to our blog posts on Microsoft solutions, we will be having a closer look at PowerApps, the company’s platform which aims to make app development easier.
Over the last few weeks, we have been looking at some of the innovative programs that are included in the Microsoft Office 365 suite. This week, we are looking at Office Delve. Delve is program that was created with quite an ambitious goal – to provide users with all the information and files that they need to see at any point in time. Needless to say, Microsoft have invested many years into the development of Delve, but from our experience, it is delivering on its promise. Let’s have a closer look at how this is possible.
On Friday May 12, a massive cyberattack was launched and has been spreading across the globe ever since. Hundreds of thousands of computers have been targeted, with major government and corporate operations affected. The cyberattack has come in the form of a malware (malicious software) known as WannaCry. In this post, we wanted to update you all about what we know about this malware and what you need to do in the wake of this cyberattack.
Last week, we spoke about Microsoft’s new Teams platform and how it can assist with internal communications in a workforce. Continuing our focus on key Office 365 programs, we wanted to talk today about SharePoint. In the last few years, Comunet has been able to help several organisations setup their own SharePoint portals and the results have been very positive. In this post, we wanted to cover some of the benefits that SharePoint can deliver to your organisation, and how it may be able to work for you.
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.
We have spoken previously about how Comunet can help your organisation against the threat of cybercrime. In this blog post, we wanted to go into more detail about some of the threats that your team members should be aware of. As we often advise our clients, the end user is often the last line of defence in an organisation’s cybersecurity program. By helping your team members understand the threats that exist, you can ensure that this last line remains strong. Here are some of the key threats that your organisation should be on the lookout for.
