Technology Trends – Small is Beautiful and Scalable




In the computer services market, there are various ongoing and emerging trends driving uptake of services across the corporate and public sectors. Some of the key drivers affecting the computer services sector include the use of open

source solutions and the effect that virtualisation technology is having on infrastructure costs and Infrastructure management. It is allowing companies to develop a better technology to create competitive advantage and move away from the one size fits all.

However a huge amount of companies and governments around the world go down this route with great results. It allows then to scope out what you need and slowly roll out a services – these services allow you have customisation and development as part of an ongoing programme and as Part of your Service Level agreement – they are fully backed with training and support. It’s allow you to develop unique data services that are unique to you as part of your overall company strategy and over time to customise and bring greater value. They also benefit you to make statements about how you manage your data and how it is hosted.

The Continuous growth in digital services across virtually all sectors of the UK economy has generated significant demand for computer services and IT outsourcing (ITO).

The proliferation of mobile devices and mobile Internet access has driven demand for mobility services, which provide workers with remote access to client systems. Privacy and data protection are key concerns in the sector, with new up-and-coming regulations and directives from Europe set to impact the market over the next year or two. The new rules could help reduce administrative burdens for European operators through the introduction of a single set of rules on data protection across the EU.

There has been a significant increase in demand for cloud computing services. At present, the vast majority of demand is for software-as-a-service (SaaS); however, opportunities remain to grow other cloud computing services, such as infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS).

Public sector IT supply has been affected by tighter central and departmental government budgetary constraints. IT is a key area of investment in the public sector, particularly under the Government’s Digital by Default programme, but austerity has nevertheless placed pressure on contracts.

Virtual Power Plants – The Internet of Energy


Virtual Power Plants VPPs are formed through BOI_Header_650x150_v2the aggregation of multiple small distributed generation units (including combinations of wind, solar PV etc. systems), fixed and variable loads and energy storage systems, which are then controlled by a central Energy Management System . Through this “internet of energy” arrangement, a VPP can achieve fidelity over the supply of electricity and, through communication with consumers, demand.

The implementation of VPPs can lead to greater predictability in carbon neutral energy output; greater control over power output; better congestion management; increased ability to allocate energy to users as required; and trading of the energy generated.
