Digital Transformation Event

18th November 2016

With increasing numbers of large and small businesses now running functions -in the cloud and through Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers, David Walker, a director of ITI Network Services, was intrigued to attend a 'Digital Transformation' discussion event hosted by Sheffield Chamber on 10 November.

Google's Nadia Hamraie was joined by Guy Ellis and Ben Trood from Netpremacy Global Services (a Google Cloud Premier Partner), to give an interesting pitch about business use of G Suite, which includes Gmail, Calendar, Hangouts, Google Docs, Sheets and Slides. Guy outlined case studies of a number of well-known businesses that are increasing efficiency and reducing costs through the solutions. He describes G Suite as -the world's most advanced cloud infrastructure, and attendees were curious not only about the functionality of the system, but about security, integration, working offline and syncing. ITI's David Walker commented, -A key takeaway from the event for me was Guy's comment that connectivity is where business need to be investing. Whether businesses choose and use G Suite or other software and systems to manage their information and processes, it's certainly clear that more and more data will be stored and processed in the cloud. So it's vital that business' connectivity through reliable wifi and robust infrastructure is reliable, fast and secure to help them get the best from any cloud-based or SaaS systems they use. ITI looks forward to helping the many local authorities and businesses who are adopting G Suite to ensure their connectivity is fit for purpose.
