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 Cloud Connect for Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute allows users to create private connections between the Microsoft Azure cloud and infrastructure on their own premises or in a colocation environment.
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.
CORETX has today announced the establishment of a new IT apprenticeship programme.
CORETX’s apprenticeship scheme will meet the Digital IT Apprenticeship standards set by the BCS, the UK’s Chartered Institute for IT. On 1 February, the company will welcome candidates to an assessment day at its Croydon head office, from which 10 young people will be invited to join the scheme.
We are pleased to announce the appointments of Merlin Gillespie and Jenny Bratherton as Group Strategy Director and Director of Voice Services respectively.
We’re pleased to announce the completion of a significant step in our planned expansion of internationally recognised certifications, having recently achieved ISO 9001:2015, ISO 20000-1:2011, ISO 27001:2013 and PCI DSS accreditation.
With so much choice in managed services, accreditations help customers navigate the market, removing uncertainty and providing confidence in their selected IT service provider. The expansion in ISO and PCI accreditation demonstrates our commitment to the highest possible standards for every customer, across all services selected.
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.
