Affordable IT services
New technology has always conferred advantage on those that adopt it early. New IT is more accessible than any technology has ever been, but it is difficult to remain informed about its rapid developments, assess them objectively, and find ways to exploit them for specific business needs. I provide a wide range of IT support services, but my specialism is in bringing the most appropriate new IT to my clients. They share my knowledge, experience, objectivity, and research in a cost effective way. I want to understand my clients’ business practices so that I can match new IT to them.
New software and services provide new opportunities and can be free or cheap while building their client base. However, the trend to accelerate bringing new IT to market means that some of it is not reliable enough in the early stages, and important features tend to be added progressively. Assessing new IT can be time consuming and technical. Sometimes it needs the ability to look ahead at the potential of the underlying ideas. To do this well requires experience and a strong understanding of trends and possibilities in technology.
My feeds on the home page of this website highlight interesting new IT, and I discuss more fundamental trends and technologies on my Linkedin profile.
Software services will become increasingly common. They will provide access to huge, specialist, and aggregated data sets that could not easily be acquired and managed by non-specialists. Exponentially increasing hardware performance will place significant processing power in the hands of individuals. New uses for that processing power will include speculative activity on behalf of the owners of devices. This will create new opportunities and difficulties for business in managing automated data exchange between increasingly diverse hardware, software and services.
Communication that was never planned between behaviour will become possible. So programmes will be able to sustain data exchange with other independently evolving programmes, and with other programmes they have not specifically been designed to communicate with. This will enable speculative and transient connections, and so competition between computing resources in an open market. This will create pressures on traditional boundaries as the complexity of connectivity reaches levels that are difficult to monitor and control but circumvent existing controls.
