For New Zealand organisations, ‘digital’ is the latest trend, encompassing the emergence of cloud computing, big data and a move towards mobile and social platforms. But are these genuinely fundamental to organisations or just the latest buzzwords?
We talked to IT leaders amongst our customer base and dug into this concept of 'digital'. We wanted to understand whether it was hype or something significant, and what effect IT leaders think it is having on their business and ability to deliver IT systems that meet their organisation’s needs.
Quality, when not done right, can cause major repercussions to any organisation. Be they reputational, financial or political repercussions, quality must be at the forefront of any organisations mind when it comes to solution delivery.
Having spent the past decade specialising in Testing and Quality Assurance, Qual IT understands the importance of staying testing ‘relevant’. It is invaluable to keep up with the latest trends within the industry and to network with likeminded quality professionals.
Qual IT love being an active contributor to the New Zealand hi-tech community and endeavour to support associations that encourage innovation and growth in the tech sector. So it is with much excitement that we announce Qual IT as a sponsor for the New Zealand Hi-tech Awards for 2016.
In testing we work with all facets of technical capability from developers, to programmers, to those leading the project down its path. We work with these people within the organisations we engage with as well as having the capabilities within our own team as well.
As the leaders of ICT and projects within large organisations, reputation means everything to you. Your deliverables need to reflect the high standard that your company operates at to retain and attract new business. You set up systems and processes to ensure that everything going out the door is at an acceptable standard. You know that it is unacceptable to have sub-standard products going to market.
It’s the lament of many a technology expert - their brilliant innovations would work perfectly if it wasn’t for the intervention of humans. Self-drive cars have been lauded as a way to reduce accidents, minimise traffic congestion and lessen the negative environmental impacts of transport. Widespread adoption is a long way off however. According to a recent New York Times article, the main barrier to the success of Google’s self-driving cars seems not to be the technology itself, rather its people.
As we pack up from another highly successful Health Informatics NZ conference, we took a look at the results of the survey that we ran during the time we were there. Firstly, thanks to everyone who came and talked to us and to those who filled out our survey, we had a great response to it.
The Health Informatics NZ Conference (HINZ) is back again for 2015 with a wide range of speakers and exhibitors to help build your knowledge base and introduce you to new ideas. Come along and have a chat to us.
