Today we wanted to talk about some of the exciting work Comunet have been able to do in the aviation industry, in what we hope will be a series of blog posts focusing on the various industry sectors that we are engaged in. It is interesting to note that Comunet actually has quite a history in the aviation sector, beginning with our affiliated company, Avinet.
Last week, we published a blog post on Comunet’s Vision. The post detailed the key elements that underpin our company’s vision and the reasons why it resonates with us. We wanted to follow-up this previous article with a closer look at Comunet’s Core Values, which are our key operating philosophies that help us deliver on Our Vision. Again, these Values were finalised by our Leadership Team after receiving input from across the entire organisation. Let’s look at each value in turn.
As we enter the New Year, we thought it would be good to take the opportunity to talk about Comunet’s Vision. The updated Vision statement was finalised in late-2016 by our company’s Leadership Team, after they received contributions and suggestions from across the entire Comunet team. The Vision statement was formalised to serve as a reminder to all team members about the company we aspire to be. Because our Vision will underpin all the work we perform in 2017 (as has been the case every year since our founding in 1995), we thought it was timely for us to share why we believe in this statement so strongly. In case you have not seen it already, Our Vision is specified below:
It’s that time of year again when we look back on the months that have been and look forward to the New Year ahead of us. Hopefully it has been a successful year for you and your organisation, but have you considered making some new year’s resolutions for your IT systems? Today, we wanted to start what we hope will be an annual feature on the Comunet blog, focusing on some IT resolutions that your company should consider in the new year ahead. Here are our suggestions for 2017:
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?
