Many people have asked me recently what it is like to work at Comunet and what makes us different. Previously I was apprehensive before I answered as it seems to me that many businesses make claims about how they are unique, most seem to suggest that it is their customer centric approach that sets them apart.

There is an important reason why we decided to write this article. In our discussions with various aircraft operators both large and small, we have found that several people we have spoken to believe that all you need for a successful EFB program are some tablet computers with key apps installed for the pilots. However, there is more involved. This is not being said to discredit the role of tablet computers and aviation apps, which are obviously key to a successful end-user experience. Admittedly cliché, it is important to emphasise that tablets and apps really are the tip of the EFB iceberg.   

What is the "True Cloud"?

An interesting analogy I heard recently via Marc Soester, Managing Director at IPMO,  compared the Cloud to a modern day power station. When Thomas Edison established the first public power station in 1882, it enabled the enterprise corporations and the 'well to do' to gain greater access to electricity. The power industry rapidly developed until electricity was more widely available from the 1920s onwards,  business could now more effectively consume a mass produced resource rather than having the cost and complexity of generating themselves. Today, this concept is accepted as the normal standard in the generation and distribution of power, a company still investing in its own power generation is a very rare and specialised situation.
