Our acquisition of 365IT at the start of April 2017 has led to a very busy couple of weeks, and I wanted to write a few words about the rationale behind the acquisition, as well as setting out at a high level what happens next.
We’re deep into the second day of Cloud Expo Europe, hosted within London’s huge ExCeL exhibition centre. We’re taking a little time out from the show to give you a flavour of what we’re focussing on.
Our message to visitors – and the organisers expect to see 18,000 people through their doors – is all about how we enable customers to focus on their business objectives and outcomes, rather than developing an IT and cloud strategy in-house to support their delivery.
CORETX was very pleased to welcome 14 candidates to its apprentice assessment day on Wednesday.
The session was very much about making sure candidates found out more about CORETX, our culture and what an apprenticeship with us involves, as well as CORETX staff assessing them for their suitability for the schemes.
If you work in the public sector, you’ll know how careful you have to be over procurement. When selecting solutions to specific challenges, you need certainty on their ongoing quality and the value they will provide to citizens. It’s you that’s held accountable for how you’ve spent tax payer’s money.
CORETX is able to rapidly develop and deliver solutions that meet the unique requirements of public sector customers. To provide that all-important level of assurance, we hold a place on the G-Cloud 8 framework, as well as the Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework.
I’m really proud of the systems we’ve built at our Bournemouth data centre. And on one specific day in September this year, I could not have been prouder.
The day started with an important visitor. It was audit day and I was showing the auditor around the facility. We have an excellent reputation for passing our audits at CORETX but I always feel a little background nervousness about these proceedings.
Thanks to sponsorship from CORETX and the generosity of colleagues from around the business, I was able to return to the Sure24 orphanage in Nakuru, Kenya, this summer to spend two weeks supporting their invaluable work.
In April of 2015, CORETX was approached by one of our employees, Tolulope Obassa, who wanted our support with her charity group “Flowing Rivers” who were working in Nakuru, Kenya at the Sure24 Orphanage.
CORETX donated stationary, laptops and mobile phones to Flowing Rivers charity and assisted in fundraising to enable Tolulupe to take the material to help build the schools in Nakuru.
How fantastic is it to see that the UK’s fastest growing digital economy, Bournemouth, hasn’t slowed down since its recent time in the spotlight? Our tech hub is truly walking the walk as we hear about yet another fantastic scheme to attract even more businesses to our South Coast digital city.
As a country, we like to think we are reasonably modern in terms of access to technology and connectivity. But let’s not forget it was only a few months ago that headlines were splashed with revelations that a creative firm in London’s Tech City, (the new, world-leading tech cluster), admitted it was quicker to courier a file to a client on a USB stick than to share it over their internet connection. Still think we all have equal access to great connectivity?
Whilst CORETX customers and partners are familiar with our expertise in the provision, maintenance and support of Cloud and other IT Infrastructure services, many are not aware that we are also an approved supplier within the Governments G-Cloud 7 Framework.
