Digicom will be exhibiting at the upcoming CIO and IT Leaders Summit in Croke Park on Wednesday 12 September. Tomorrow’s business environment will be more digital, diverse and automation-savvy than ever before. Technology advances such as IoT, AI, machine learning, virtual and augmented reality are creating demanding expectations from customers, employees and boards. In reality, this transformation is ongoing and always unfolding – it’s a journey, not a destination.
Digicom is one of the Founding Partners of a new ‘not for profit’ initiative called Lift Ireland. LIFT stands for Leading Ireland’s Future Together. We all recognise that good leadership is important, whether we are at home, in school, at work or involved in Government and politics. LIFT’s aim is to create better leaders in Ireland and make our country the best place it can be.

The General Data Protection Regulation deadline is fast approaching! The GDPR is intended to harmonise existing Data Protection laws across the EU. Firstly it will strengthen the rights of citizens around the use of their personal data. It will also increase the responsibility on data processors and controllers when undertaking the lawful processing of personal data of EU citizens. The foundation of a GDPR compliant system is a well designed and secure information system. An unsecure print system can leave your organisation vulnerable for two reasons: it is a point of entry for an attacker, and printed documents themselves can be a source of data loss.
Below are 5 practical steps you should take to have your printing system comply with GDPR requirements:
The pharmaceutical landscape is becoming more challenging than ever. Patients and consumers of today are now constantly socially connected and pharmaceutical organisations must provide on-demand access to information and support. While scientific advancements have led to miraculous treatments, technological advancements also have the potential to facilitate unprecedented innovation.
To adapt and succeed in this changing landscape, pharmaceuticals companies need to respond by incorporating digital tools and improving processes.
Keep it simple. Do it better. And remember: users are driving all the experience.
That’s how I’d summarise the ISE this year. It reinforced what truly matters: user experience (UX), and rightly so. Yes the AV integration is important to customers, but only if it can deliver a smooth and efficient experience for the end-user.
For example, it is essential for large companies with several meeting rooms to ensure UX consistency in every meeting space. The equipment being the same in all meeting rooms, it simplifies operations and IT systems and the points of failure are minimised.
The Integrated System Europe event was back in full swing this year, proof that the Audio Visual landscape is more buoyant than ever (if we ever needed one!)
ISE 2018 was the largest and busiest Integrated Systems Europe in its 15-year history. Across all 15 halls, visitors experienced a vibrant showcase of the latest AV and systems integration technologies, products and solutions. Almost 35,000 visitors attended the first day of the show and over 30% of the total attendees were visiting ISE for the first time.
I was fortunate enough to attend a pre conference event at ISE 2018 Amsterdam this year called TIDE.
The conference’s theme was the Audio Visual landscape of the future.
The outcome of the event in my mind was clear:
Technology will always advance. It’s the people around it we need to focus on.
The demographic of the workplace has changed with more people working from home and on the move. Despite this, businesses in Ireland are failing to embrace and enable mobile workstyles for employees.
According to Ricoh Ireland’s 2017 Workstyle Innovation Survey, in association with TechPro magazine and involving 175 IT decision-makers from private and public sector organisations across Ireland, only 37% of workers have authorisation and the remote access tools to enjoy a mobile workstyle. This is surprising when you consider the benefits of mobile working which includes greater flexibility (79%), increased productivity (69%), attracting and retaining the best talent (37%), enhanced business continuity and improved customer service (both 36%). In other words, supporting and enabling mobility is not only advantageous for the individuals but also the organisation, as well as its customers or clients.
