Some things change, some stay the same
Welcome to the new-look issue of Smarts.
Welcome to the new-look issue of Smarts. Our previous design served us well for 27 issues and now, with issue 28, we’ve embarked on a redesign to help Smarts look more vibrant and contemporary. We hope you like it.
As you would have seen on the cover, from 2012 Intergen is sponsoring the Intergen ANZ Championship Umpires. This is a new opportunity for us, and we’re excited by the prospect of sponsoring a leading trans-Tasman sports tournament.
Netball is a fast-moving sport that features elite sportspeople at the top of their game. At the same time, the technology industry also moves quickly, and we strive to be the best at what we do. There are some strong parallels between the decision-making that happens on the court and the decisions we – our staff and our customers alike – need to make on a daily basis. Decisions count, and that’s a theme we will be focused on this year and beyond.
Late last year we increased our focus on business intelligence, with Tim Mole moving from managing the Southern Region to a new position leading our business intelligence service line.
We’ve been creating BI solutions for several years, but have decided to invest in growing our capability now in order to meet increasing market demand, and to take better advantage of a new wave of solutions which are being released. We see a lot of potential in BI, and many of our customers are looking to extract more value out of their significant technology investments. This year promises to be as busy as ever, with a number of activities underway. Microsoft’s release schedule looks packed, and the evolving market – and the further embracement of the web and mobile technologies, in particular – create new opportunities for all of us to consume and create information. We’re several months into the year already, and I hope it’s started successfully for you and your organisation.
