Why We’re Backing Commvault For Data Management

Patrick Costello

Over the years at SureSkills, our customers have known us for being independent and technology-neutral. We have always prided ourselves on our ability to diagnose the best solutions for customers rather than prescribing from a narrowly defined menu. 

Like most technology providers, we naturally have partnerships because we’ve always believed it’s better to have evaluated vendors on behalf of our customers, rather than presenting a bewildering array of options to pick from – especially if those customers don’t have the time or breadth of technical experience to judge for themselves and relied on us for guidance. 

(The reason for this is, most large organisations and especially financial intuitions’ internal staff are only exposed to their own environment – and sometimes only small sections of that. The restrictions and regulations on changing the environment limit their chance to carry out these tasks.)

SureSkills TechPro 2017 Prediction

With such high levels of uncertainty in the business environment, what one piece of advice would we give Irish IT organisations in navigating the next 12 months?

By Kevin Reid, Chief Technical Officer, SureSkills  

Now that the ‘as a service’ model for IT has become mainstream, my advice for the year ahead is to be smarter about cloud procurement in order to maximise the benefit it brings to your business. 

Many organisations still consume cloud services like traditional technology stacks, buying more than they actually need. Unlike the IT of old, the cloud’s rental model means you can adjust your service spend from month to month. The key is to make your provider work for you and your business. Most cloud platforms have granular metrics about application usage, so you can see patterns and take action accordingly through adjustments, training or enablement to maximise usage of the technology.

Broker-Focused Briefings Teach Tech in Business Speak

Patrick Costello

SureSkills and the IBA teamed up to deliver complimentary executive briefings to help brokers to future-proof their firms.

During the final quarter of 2016, IBA members were treated to the first two of an ongoing series of complimentary executive briefings aimed at showing brokers the business benefits of technologies like cloud computing. 

SureSkills, an Irish-owned provider of technology, knowledge and learning solutions, partnered with the IBA to develop the hour-long seminars. As Mark Feldman, Senior Business Development Manager at SureSkills explained: “From discussions with the Irish Brokers Association, we know many members are concerned about rapidly changing technology trends, and they’re wondering how to get the best out of their IT.” 

The high-level presentations were delivered by experts from some of the leading names in technology including Microsoft and Dell, who demystified the issues in a non-technical setting.
