Navigating the Mists of Cloud Computing

On Tuesday 29th October we will be hosting an event as part of the annual Leicester Business Festival, presented by our Chief Executive, Bernard Szczech. Cloud Computing is all the rage. Apparently we should be embracing it. But what does it actually mean? And how should you navigate the mists of the cloud to benefit your organisation? This event is aimed at people who want to know how cloud computing can help their organisation to improve performance and reduce costs. The presentation will not be technical. It will be relevant to organisations of all sizes from SMEs to large enterprises. The presentation will break through the jargon of cloud computing to help attendees be clearer on how the cloud can benefit their organisation by reducing costs, improving speed to market, reducing lock in to particular IT suppliers and improving IT security.

Charity Africa Trip

In the summer of 2016, a team of 14 volunteers led by Fuzail Patel, from the IBM Client Innovation Centre in Leicester, embarked on a philanthropic journey to raise £5,000 for the people of East Africa over the next 12 months. Various fundraising events were held, such as Fatty Fridays, fun and social events such as go-karting, an Easter Egg Hunt, a table tennis tournament, raffles of baskets filled with chocolates, auctioning of a Leicester Tigers rugby shirt and a signed canvas of Leicester City FC's Riyadh Mahrez, and by running our very own tuck shop based in the office. This could not happened if it was not for the perseverance and hard work put in by the volunteers. The team were sponsored by Mudassir Husain (Head of Operations) and the full £5,000 was raised. Mudassir personally flew out to East Africa with two colleagues, Teresa Badhan and Nasreen Jabbar, to apply the funds in most needed places. The story was simple – to show that a small amount of money applied correctly makes a difference somewhere in the world. They visited three countries - Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania - in just over two and a half weeks. As part of the planning phase, cities, towns and villages were researched and targeted before arrival. Local contacts in each country helped the team to navigate their way, ensure value for money on purchases and maximise the hours in each day, which often started at 4am and finished at 10.30pm each day. Through clear goals, passion and persistence, the team ensured each and every £1 donated by colleagues, friends and family reached the right hands and people most in need. The three of them completed more than 25 projects which included, amongst many others: uniforms, stationery and chalkboards for deprived schools; water pumps, tanks and food packages for those in rural slum areas; and mattresses, hospital beds and wheelchairs to hospices, maternity wards and paedriatic units. The project was a great success, proving that you don't need thousands of pounds to make a difference to many people's l
