The last year has been disruptive on many fronts, but even more so in the world of technology. In this post, we wanted to look back over the last 12 months and pick our top industry trends that look set to shape the years ahead of us.
Comunet were fortunate enough to attend Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) global annual conference, re:Invent 2016 a few weeks ago. Over the course of several days in Las Vegas, AWS announced several major releases and updates to their cloud platform and we wanted to highlight some of the exciting news that emerged from this event. Read on to find out more.
The hub of Comunet’s innovation engine is our Software Development Department. This team have excelled at producing business-critical software for our clients that change the business landscape and foster competitive advantage.
This week, Comunet had the pleasure of joining OzRunways at the Regional Airline Association of Australia's (RAAA) 2016 Convention. OzRunways are the developers of the popular tablet computer app of the same name, enabling pilots to view aerial maps and other important data when flying. With Comunet's electronic flight bag (EFB) management services for the aviation industry, it made perfect sense for our company to stand alongside Australia's leading EFB software developers.
On Comunet's YouTube channel, we recently published a video case study focusing on a project we completed for Queensland Government (QG) Air. QG Air delivers life-saving, community safety and state support aviation services to the people Queensland. They engaged Comunet to help them launch a new electronic flight bag (EFB) program. EFBs are tablet computers that pilots use during flight. They contain electronic copies of all the maps, manuals and other documentation that they would normally have to carry in physical, paper-based flight bags.
Yesterday’s state-wide blackout in South Australia left thousands of people in the dark for hours on end. Events such as these do not happen often, but that does detract from the now-proven fact that they can happen. The question is, were your IT systems prepared for yesterday’s events? More importantly, are they prepared if such events happen again?
Back in May 2016, Mark Ogden (Comunet's CEO) published a blog post describing how Lego bricks are a good analogy for the powers of cloud computing. In a recent cloud case study for our client, Gliderol, Mark provided further insight into this useful analogy. We have included below an extract from this case study video, which we hope provides further clarity about how cloud platforms can be used to transform businesses, just like Gliderol.
On Comunet's YouTube channel, we recently published a video case study outlining the work that we performed for Gliderol, Australia's leading manufacturer of residential garage doors. Gliderol wanted to make the transition to the cloud and they had a very short time frame to do so. In partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), we were able to help Gliderol make this transition successfully and on time. To find out more, check out our video case study below:
Beyond our work in the technology sector, Comunet are very fortunate to be able to help those who are less fortunate. In the last few months, we have been able to work with the DR Memorial International School in Nepal, which is connected to a local orphanage. Comunet were able to raise funds to sponsor the school's basketball team, providing all the players with uniforms and shoes. We recently received the below images from the school as the team heads off to their first basketball tournament. We wish the team all the very best for the tournament and we are proud to have been able to assist them on their journey.
|Comunet was fortunate enough to be able to join Amazon Web Services and Microsoft on stage to present at an event hosted by the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA). Our CEO, Mark Ogden, spoke about understanding the cloud and the benefits it can deliver to organisations large and small. If you would like to view the entire presentation, you can find it embedded below. A big thanks to CEDA for allowing us to participate in this important discussion.
