Whitepaper: Keeping your business healthy in a pandemic

Posted by Nidhi Savla on Mon, Apr 13, 2020 @ 11:57 PM

As governments and healthcare workers undertake herculean efforts to protect their citizens from COVID 19, the common theme from all of them to their citizens and residents is ‘stay at home and you will be safe and it will help us contain this virus while we search for a cure and treatment’.

In light of this, almost all companies that can, have now asked their staff to work from home. While we know that staying at home and maintaining a period of isolation will protect our physical health, what about the health of the companies we work for? The health of these businesses and the ability of employers to pay staff during this time is also critical to our well-being and the well-being of society. Company health is directly linked to employee productivity and IT departments across the globe must now focus on enabling employees to work form home the same way as they could previously from the office. With this in mind we have written a whitepaper that we think you will find useful called ‘Keeping businesses healthy in a pandemic’.

The working from home ‘movement’ has long been a hot topic in technology companies. The nature of the job means many engineers work after hours and during working hours they often prefer to work remotely. The recent worrying spread of the COVID-19 virus in the Far East and now in other parts of the globe  has caused many companies to see how viable working from home would be for them (including us at BIOS Middle East). It seems we are not alone with companies like Hitachi, JP Morgan and Chevron all asking their workers to work remotely as a measure against the rapidly-spreading disease.

The datacenter is dead. Long live the Cloud

Posted by Nidhi Savla on Wed, Oct 23, 2019 @ 01:25 PM

The phenomenon that is cloud is shaking traditional IT to its core. The growth in cloud services is nothing short of exponential. Meanwhile hardware sales for traditional datacenter technologies declines fast. When we launched our Cloud services in the UAE in 2013 the conversation used to be; “Is cloud really viable? Is cloud secure? Should I consider it instead of on premise?”, now the conversation has changed to; “Which cloud is best for which application? How much of our IT can we move to the cloud? When can we migrate to the cloud?”
