Amazon CTO: AWS Will Erase the Line Between Physical and Digital

Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon, shared his predictions about the future of cloud services. According to him, the distinction between physical and digital will disappear and AWS will continue to bring new intelligent capabilities to physical devices like Amazon’s Echo – a smart device connected to AWS to gain access to the Alexa intelligent assistant and control smart home devices, capabilities that, without the cloud, would have required far more computing power.

Healthcare and security in 2021

In their recently published security bulletin, Kaspersky predicts that next year will see an increase in attacks against the fields of medicine and pharmaceuticals. This will force healthcare organisations across the world to contribute to security much more, especially in the UK which is among the first countries in the world to have just started with vaccinations.

Leveraging the Cloud in Healthcare

There are a multitude of tasks to complete when migrating to the cloud but the benefits for cost saving and time are significant when properly optimised. There are three important steps to consider when migrating to the cloud. 1: plan & prepare, 2: choosing your cloud environment and 3: migrating your data & applications.

Security and the Life Cycle of IT Solutions

Although the importance of cybersecurity has been talked about more and more, then it is important to note that the most hideous incidents that reach public awareness via media still only form just the tip of the iceberg. Cyberattacks are showing strong signs of a constant growth trend and have become a daily part of the increasingly more laborious jobs of IT systems managers.

Sigrid Pedak: how do we manage diversity and inclusion

ADM Interactive has supported diversity since its founding. That means that for over 20 years now, we have given priority consideration to people and their characteristics in everything we do. We have always supported diversity because we are convinced that it is an important factor in increasing employee satisfaction. And if our employees see that we actually care about them, then they are more motivated in turn.

MedKiosk was chosen as the winner from among the 11 participating teams. Additionally, one team will also be able to finalise their idea at ADM’s monthly Big Friday event.

Diverse companies earn higher profits

For us, it is important that our employees are happy and that the cooperation between us goes smoothly, without any obstacles, as this is the only way for us to create truly smart solutions. One important prerequisite for this is diversity.

Working from home with a workstation instead of a laptop

One of the main problems that arises with having to work from home is a lack of computers to work with. Most of the time, companies try to resolve this issue by allowing their employees to work from their home computers, hoping that they will be able to get the job done with those. Alternatively, the company will purchase a huge number of laptops as quickly as possible and set those up according to the company’s requirements.

The Challenges of Remote Working

When work and entertainment all move online, then it not only puts people’s patience to the test, but also technology. When children had to start online schoolwork and parents remote work on Monday, then it became clear quite quickly that the creators of existing systems were not prepared for such a sudden load increase. Since the virus is affecting all countries, then not even the biggest service providers were safe – not only was eKool in Estonia experiencing technical difficulties for a short while, but even Microsoft’s teamwork solution Teams and its messaging platform were affected.
