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.

Collaborating with Creators – Comunet’s Work in the Resources and Industrial Sectors

Working with an organisation in the manufacturing or horticulture industry is always a fresh experience for our team, because we have the opportunity to ask the question “what can be done differently?” As is often the case with many organisations in these industries, processes and practices are underpinned by years of experience. For a technology company such as Comunet, our role is to view operations from a new perspective. This allows us to have a conversation with Engineers, Operations Managers and CEOs about how technology can work with their current processes to elevate outcomes for their customers. In this blog post, we want to share some examples of where these conversations have lead.

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?

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.

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...
