Concirrus experts of The Internet of Things (IOT), are encouraging companies to create, disrupt and improve their current business models.
The Internet of Things describes a way in which more and more of the technology and equipment we interact with is being connected and managed online.
With this, businesses can now collect in-depth information about their product or service in real time. Then by understanding and organising the information, it can allow companies to take a fresh look at their current practices and generate business change.
The implications for businesses model change is huge, it can and is, having an effect on large sectors such as healthcare, education and transportation; to turning a small businesses single service to an entire end-to-end solution and thus increasing the value of a company’s offering.
Concirrus understand that transforming a current business models is not easy, nor is introducing new technology to a current service but with their three-step approach they make you wonder why every business doesn’t have it today.
“We’ve used it on numerous clients and it’s never let us down…
– Step 1 – We make the decision easy. We explain the IOT of things and educate our customers on how it can transform their businesses.
– Step 2 – Identify a successful IOT area. We really spend time with our clients to fully understand their business model then we find relevant touch points that can be improved by IOT.
Vital discussions about cloud-enabled IT are taking place in public and private sector organisations across the UK, but what are the top 4 things they really should know?
1. It doesn’t have to be painful.
The IT industry came from a perspective where it used to cost millions to implement new products and ideas because we had to build lots of infrastructure, but cloud services turn that notion on its head. The beauty of the cloud is its simplicity; it can be turned on and off as and when it’s needed, quickly and easily.
2. The cloud can be as secure as you need it to be.
The cloud offers different levels of security, from private cloud environments powered by UK-only secure data centres to public cloud models with shared servers. There’s a solution out there for every business, no matter what their data security requirements are.
3. If you’re not using the cloud, you’re paying for capacity that you’re just not using.
If you’re a start-up today, and you want to get investment in a new idea, private equity houses are just not interested in spending capex on IT infrastructure. By accessing IT requirements in the cloud, organisations can take a pay-as-you-go approach, reducing up-front investment, making them more scalable for fast growth, and most importantly making sure they only ever pay for what they use.
4. If you don’t do it, your competitors will.
Cloud is giving us the opportunity to be more agile, allowing us to turn on that dime, to try new markets without big investments in IT. It’s a distinct competitive advantage, and organisations that ignore it are set to fall behind the technology curve.

Understand the key aspects of business processes, how they can be optimised and then delivered via the cloud.
Think about the things that are key for an organization to succeed – internal communication and collaboration across teams, simple and effective file storage, getting access to information quickly, and remaining within compliance regulations that might relate to their business.
Technology and ECM in particular help in exactly those areas. They help organizations get to grips with the information chaos that many currently find themselves in – drowning in emails, with information stored in multiple places and often duplicated several times. Managing that content is essential for any information driven organization but difficult to do. However, manage information well and it can turn into a significant competitive advantage. That advantage is what ECM can deliver.
The ECM in the Cloud market is a very crowded, and consequently, a very confusing one. Established ECM software applications clash with new cloud-based file sharing solutions– with neither of them really delivering what the end-user wants.
Only the combination of ECM AND cloud together truly satisfies the needs of the end users. It is a series of tools built upon a resilient and flexible cloud framework that allows an organization to automate and refine its processes, to store, manage, and access its content and to remain compliant in whatever industry they happen to work in. It is a flexible monthly billing model, a scalable solution that can be grown or shrunk as the organization requires it and it is secure and resilient to a level that works for the end user at a price they are happy to pay.
