“The benchmark for outstanding performance throughout the UK computer industry”

The UK IT Industry Awards were held on the 18th November at the Battersea Park Events Arena in London. The event was really something to behold: with over 1300 attendees, the awards brought together some of the industry’s leading members for the biggest IT event of the year. Hosted by the comedian Stephen K Amos, there was live entertainment in a magnificent marquee, a champagne reception and brilliant three-course meal.

The awards focused on the contribution of individuals, projects, organisations and technologies from all around the UK that have excelled in the ‘usage, development and deployment of IT in the last twelve months‘. We’d like to start things off by saying a huge congratulations to all entrants, as getting to this stage was no small task!

Benvinguts a Barcelona!

We can’t wait to disembark in Barcelona for our second visit to the Catalan capital next month. Having recently returned from the city after attending the Gartner Symposium ITxpo with ProSymmetry, we’re looking forward to another trip to Spain’s second largest city. Aside from the beautiful architecture and great food there’s another reason that makes this trip an exciting one.

Our client Arup, a global design and engineering firm, will be speaking at the event about our recent work together. Carolyn Bundey, Manager of the Global IT Portfolio Management Office at Arup, will talk about how harnessing the power of the cloud, with Project Online, helped them save over 40 man hours every month and create effective insights across their global projects. For the full story you can read the Customer Story written by Microsoft here. Continue reading >>

APM Awards results and PMI Synergy

| | Leave a comment

Towards the end of October, we wrote about our involvement in the 2015 Annual Project Management Awards held on November 2nd. Before we go any further, we must say that it was a fantastic event with some really deserving nominees and winners. For us, it was also particularly special, as it was our 9th consecutive year sponsoring the Programme of the Year award. And to keep the tradition going, we’ve just signed on for another 3 years with APM, so we’re already excited to get to number 10 next year!

2015 marked the highest ever number of entries – breaking the previous record set at last year’s event – so the competition was tougher than ever. For that reason, we would first of all like the congratulate each and every finalist. They should all be very proud of the work they’ve done and what they’ve achieved.  Continue reading >>

Taking place on the 8th – 12th November, the IT analysts’ conference will be held at the CCIB conference centre, a stone’s throw from the sea front. Continue reading >>
