For Computer Weekly, I’m looking at how hyper-converged systems benefit their users.
The piece will break down the main reasons organisations invest in HCI. These could include ease of deployment, resource utilisation, lower demand on skills than conventional architectures, scalability, and their usefulness to SMEs or remote offices.
I am interested in examples of successful HCI deployments, and commentary from industry analysts. Note we cannot quote vendors, although vendor-backed research can be used.
As ever, the best way to contact me is by email, no later than Thursday 12th March,
with a brief introduction to yourself or your client.
With the Government mapping out the route out of lockdown, I have republished this post.
Once permitted, I will also be resuming face to face training services, including media training. There will be slightly different control measures for each, but one on one training, or training with small groups from the same workplace, should be possible from April 2021.
The global pandemic has restricted live events and filming.
But interviews and pieces to camera are still a cornerstone of programmes and corporate video.
Online video calling services are good, but can’t fully replace a profession interview.
To work with the current conditions, we have put together two new video packages.
These are designed to minimise the risks from COVID-19, but still allow interviewees or presenters to appear on camera, in person.
To do this we have:
picked a venue that is large enough for social distancing and flexible enough to allow different set-ups, including green screen
designed a single-person production workflow, reducing the people on set
provided links for communications teams and others to view the production remotely
put in place strict procedures for cleaning equipment and the set
limited bookings to two a week, so there is 72 hours between each client’s shoot
Our set up includes
Two 4K video cameras
Sound recording, via a boomed mic (no lavalier or handheld mics)
Backdrops as required
The costs for filming interview content or a presentation are:
Half day: £625
Full day: £875
The above prices include the location hire and parking, we are located in SW London.
Footage can be supplied as .mov files uploaded to the client’s servers, or edited. Editing starts at £400 a day.
If you would like to find out more about the service please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0207 099 4862 and we will call you back.
Note all costs exclude VAT at the current UK rate.
For Computer Weekly, I am looking into this developing area of enterprise applications and workflows.
A brief outline is below.
In the first instance, I am keen to hear from experts in the field. Please email with your credentials and background in RPA, and links to relevant research or case studies. I will then follow up with a questions or an interview request.

Robotic process automation promises to seamlessly handle arduous workflows, linking disparate business processes, which normally require human intervention. Simpler process flows can be automated this way but there are few manual processes that only require someone rekeying information into systems that should really have been more tightly integrated. There is a level of intelligence, which cannot easily be shifted to a machine. While RPA is deterministic, an AI is probabilistic. We look at how RPA and bots that follow predetermined scripts are being made more intelligent.
