4 Things Steve Jobs Taught Us About Cloud Computing

It's faster in every case to talk to the server than it is my local hard disk... Carrying around these non-connected computers -- with tons of data and state in them -- is byzantine by comparison.

- Steve Jobs, late Co-founder and Chairman of Apple
(Click to tweet!)

Steve Jobs spoke about this in 1997 at the Worldwide Developer Conference. His speech also included a vision for bringing the cloud to everyone's personal computer. Sure enough, 19 years later today, all of us probably have adopted cloud computing for both personal and business use.

Or, have we?

Too many apps. Too many data sets. Too many teams needing access to the same files.

Replace painful manual processes with automation that is as easy as getting your Facebook and Spotify up and in sync.

Our Product team has completed and shipped a brand new series of Moodle connectors that work just like LEGO blocks do. And all you need to know is that this is going to make your job easier and simpler with less risk.

Free Guide: 5 Tips To Grow Your Training Organisation With Online Enrolment

If you build it, they will come.

While that tip from Field of Dreams has primed countless organisations of various industries for success, it has also left the clueless feeling rather, well, helpless. (Not to mention poorer!)

It's true. A website can be a powerful sales tool for virtually any business. But the harder truth is that most of us don't have the expertise or resources to build an e-commerce website which results in business growth. 

Here's some good news for all registered training organisations: we've built you a new Online Enrolment app to extend your existing web site with a self-service booking engine complete with payment processing - in minutes

Focus on marketing your website, not building it. Make your mantra instead "If you invest in the right tools, they will come."

5 Ways To Make Flexible Work Arrangements Work

I can't come to work today...

That's probably one of the last statements a boss wants to hear from an employee. 

But it's not always due to illnesses (or laziness) - sometimes our Wisenet team simply can't get to the office for work due to legit reasons like:

  • Summertime Sadness, Melbourne (the office's air conditioner was out for 3 weeks)
  • Train strikes, Melbourne
  • Heavy, biting snow, Queenstown
  • Hazardous air pollution, Singapore (due to fires in Indonesia)
  • Train breakdowns, Singapore

Yet on all occasions it was Business As Usual for Wisenet across the world -- from Cairns to Las Vegas, the Philippines to Perth, and Singapore to Melbourne -- thanks to our flexible work policies for business operations and good preparation for unforeseen circumstances. Our results speak for themselves. 

We'd like to share 5 ways we've found to make flexible work arrangements work!
