  • Where it’s @!
    Philip Anthony/Co-Operative Systems
  • “When I were a lad...”
    -30 years behind a keyboard-
    Looking Back to look Forward
  • Messy Agenda
    The IT market place; what’s happening
    Gimme some truth – gimmicks and myths
    What would Del do?
    IT & the 3rd sector
    Making do
    My experiences day to day
    What was it like? What’s to come?
    Effect of Yoof & IT on tomorrow
    Home/Work and the 24/7 world
    DP is mastered DD is coming
    Security – A virus a day
    Trying to make some sense of it all…
    • 20 years experience
    • Based in Vauxhall, London
    • Specialist in IT for Third Sector
    • Able and Accredited
    • Work with up to 200 organisations in a year
    • Daily responsible for some 200 servers and 4000+ IT users
    • Partner with very able 3rd parties to give total IT service – Dell, Microsoft, Information works,SV
    Anticipatory
    Transparent
    Quality
    Value
    -“Enablers”
    Co-Operative Systems
  • The Story So Far – “Life with an Android”
    Phone in there somewhere - powerful, clever, but unreliable
    Where’s the user manual?
    • Space invaders to MineCraft in 30 years
    • Attributes of youth – change orientated, less discipline, IT accelerates and magnifies this
    • Attributes of age – experience, discipline, + control of resources
    Yoof and IT –coming soon to your office
  • Data Processing to “Doing” Processing
    Data Processing
    Databases – Things, attributes, transactions
    Same concepts 1930-2010
    We’ve become “transaction adept” – e.g. arrange an event like this
    Leaving a data-trail has mixed consequences!
  • “Doing” Processing – Intelligent DP, & “Virtual” Becomes “Reality”
    Active Systems - e.g. Leisure Activity auto linked to Healthcare auto linked to Tax breaks
    We had first generation that had never not known IT in 2000,
    In 2020 a generation that always ‘played’ and now ‘works’ in a virtual world
    An estimated 10,000 far eastern workers now create virtual objects for ‘time’ poor westerners (+ 4bn needing IT)
    Depaul’s “Help a Hobo” app raises funds for the Homeless
    Virtual war (COD) to active war with drones
  • Charities to Social Enterprises
    Charities have changed like everything else
    9-5 becomes 24/7
    Dusty pamphlets to websites
    Non competitive to highly competitive
    Big expansion of last 10 years leads to big ‘restructuring’ now
    Trending now :
    - Sharing resources – Office and IT
    - Outsourcing
  • Me and My Homies
    The ever increasing blur between work and home life
    The ‘martini’ effect keeps on growing
    eg We’ve become a 7 day a week business 6am-10pm – The ‘Tesco’ effect
    We need our people to have email, internet, phone any time any place
    Not prescriptive, not always on, not always evidenced – “dispensation”
    • Use of handhelds for data storage –’seriously, you got data on there?’
    • Solution = clean, protect & store data @ source
    • These effect trends are driving the take up of :
    • Cloud services
    • Citrix
    • .Net apps & similar
    • Hybrid devices
  • I love poundshops, I love pret
    Poundshop = Google apps – Gmail etc- cheap cheerful, distracting
    Pret = Citrix, Sans, .Net – powerful, reliable, costly
    Pound shop or Pret? - Entry level IT is free, having an IT edge costs
  • Lies, Damn Lies and 99.999% Reliability
    The internet is the slowest and weakest link
    KPIs are not the same as the user experience
    Is your data safe in the cloud? – if history has taught us anything...Sinclair, Amstrad, WorldCom, BSB, Enron, Easynet
    .NET is clunky vs Terminal solutions
    Badged data centres – everyone selling the same centres as ‘theirs’
  • Security, Viruses and Malware
    “The money is in the medicine”
    An ongoing headache – 15% of our calls, on some days 50% related to this
    Generally HQ & Core area looked after
    Home users - very vulnerable
    Prognosis
    – Will be messy for some time
  • Trying to move into the handheld space / mass volume servers for data centres
    What’s Happening With the Big Boys?
    DELL vs. HP
  • What’s Happening With the Big Boys?
    GOOGLE vs. Microsoft
    • Google/Microsoft – On premise vs Off premise
    • “Google is the best thing that could happen to Microsoft and thus the IT industry”
    • Moving into each others space – e.g. Apple becomes biggest application vendor
    • Disposability – HP devices tossed in the bin, at the lower end no updates/fixes/promises
  • Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No..it’s the IT team
    Virtualisation
    Hosting
    Cloud
    Blades
    Hybrid Device
    .NET
    Office360
    Google-Apps
    Over-the-wire backup
    SDSL
    MPLS
    Sharepoint
    CMS
    Failover
    Racking
    VOIP
    Managed Services
    Android
    ???– Ask!
    IT to the rescue
    What was it like 3 years ago
    – how did you work?
    IT is taken for granted
    IT has power to deliver massive improvements
    Don’t stay still !
    Words that should have meaning
  • 10 into 8 will go
    You have 80% of what you need, do you :
    Pray/Look the other way?
    Work harder and make others work harder
    Innovate – eg Look at the TCO spread cost over 5 years
    “ I love recessions”
    Never been a better time to buy a new car or a new server
    or
    &
  • Conclusions
    It’s a ‘messy’ world no clear road maps
    Major forces in play - Demographics, Economics, Technological
    There is a need to innovate whilst limiting risk level
    There are tremendous opportunities
    and IT is the #1 way to move forward
    “Worse things happen at sea”
  • Would the Trotters have a website?
    The Trotters as beacons of South London Business and battling through
    What can Delboy and Rodney teach us?
    - Innovate, seize the day, be positive
    • What can we also learn?
    • – remember to think about tomorrow, and tomorrows’ tomorrow
    • Steve Jobs – His “phreaking” days
    • – dodgier than Del, but boy done good
    • Yes! the Trotters would have email, ebay, mobile and a website
  • Where it’s @! 2011-Thank You-
