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.
This week I am presenting to a room full of business leaders on The Cloud - Understanding, Opportunities and Challenges. Even though I have a non-technical background, I can still get caught up in the technology speak, making it difficult to achieve understanding on some of the key messages regarding cloud computing. I have been thinking about different analogies I could come up with to try and better explain what cloud...
|Over the last few months, Comunet have been working in conjunction with AWS and Kloud to help relaunch the Amazon Web Services User Group in Adelaide.
