The Conversation, on Cyber Warfare

Cyber-attacks: what is hybrid warfare and why is it such a threat? Novikov Aleksey via Shutterstock Ethem Ilbiz, University of South Wales and Christian Kaunert, University of South Wales Washington and Moscow are engaged in a war of words over a spate of ransomware attacks against organisations and businesses in the US and other countries. These increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks represent a new type of warfare aimed at disorganising and even destroying a nation’s economy. This has been called “hybrid warfare”. It’s

Afternoon Tea improves Productivity

Sometimes you need a break. Sometimes your team needs a break. Otherwise work feels sluggish and slow, and you find yourself taking a meandering route to the problem rather than tackling it fresh and head-on. It’s a problem of productivity. Technology unfortunately isn’t very good at helping with these sorts of issues unless it is an app to order a delivery, so why not settle for something like Afternoon Tea? It’s an excellent way to re-hydrate your staff in hot

The Conversation, on AI Adoption

Artificial intelligence: governments see huge business potential, but ignore the downsides (unless you’re Google). Grenar Wim Naudé, University College Cork Many governments are increasingly approaching artificial intelligence with an almost religious zeal. By 2018 at least 22 countries around the world, and also the EU, had launched grand national strategies for making AI part of their business development, while many more had announced ethical frameworks for how it should be allowed to develop.

Why you can’t place your faith exclusively in remote support

There are times when a quick phone call, or remoting on to check a box or run a script is sufficient. These tasks are often done by the most junior staff member an IT Service Provider can reasonably have them assigned to: in theory there is a support network to lean on if needed (but rarely is this the case in practice). This comes at a major cost to you, the customer. Some may argue it is a perceived cost

Budgeting for Open-Source projects

It’s a sad fact of business that everything costs money, and there is no such thing as a free lunch. This applies to when you implement Enterprise Open Source technologies as well: someone somewhere is maintaining that code, and in terms of making it useful to you it invariably requires expertise. But how do you budget for something that, on license cost at least, is freely available? Our example project will be one we’ve directly worked on: noslegal. This global

Culture makes a workforce Agile

An organisation’s culture determines if it works in an agile way or not; technology will forever be what enables individuals and teams to work in the way they ideally want to, but can never be the deciding factor. To think of it another way, technology must be implemented in a people-centric way or it will not enable you to be agile. We will use the Collins Dictionary to define agile: An agile system is one that is designed in a way

An Open Culture, why CSR and Open-Source go hand-in-hand

In a recent piece on how our values align with Red Hat values we covered how being Brave also means fighting, actively, for the promotion of Open Source software which is by its nature freely available and accessible. For us this is important, as for example a Law Centre may not be able to afford a proprietary and closed solution, and so the promotion of Open Source is central to CSR in software development and implementation. Now, Corporate Social Responsibility
