In­no­va­tion a vi­tal cog in wheel

Yorkshire Post - Business - - FOCUS ON SMES -

IN­NO­VA­TION IS a key part of the busi­ness, says Mike Ish­er­wood, but in­no­va­tion is also re­quired from a cus­tomer per­spec­tive.

The man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of APD, which em­ploys 106 staff, says that many or­gan­i­sa­tions are buy­ing soft­ware to sit on their own servers in their own of­fices.

This re­stricts the abil­ity to de­liver up­grades and in­no­va­tion to plat­forms.

He added: “The next in­no­va­tion from an or­gan­i­sa­tional per­spec­tive is the adop­tion of cloud tech­nol­ogy so that they can in­put in new de­vel­op­ments, get them at lit­tle to no cost.

“Where we’re driv­ing our busi­ness is cloud tech­nol­ogy to de­liver all of the ben­e­fits as cheaply as pos­si­ble for the emer­gency ser­vices.”
