Help for Heroes was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in October 2007 out of a desire to help the wounded Servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. The message of the charity is simple: Help for Heroes are strictly non political and non critical; we simply want to help. Help for Heroes believe that anyone who volunteers to serve in time of war, knowing that they may risk all, is a hero. These are ordinary people doing extraordinary things and some of them are living with the consequences of their service for life.

David Williams, of Interfuture Systems, recently wrote an editorial on the subject of “Cloud Computing and Your Business” in the March/April 2012 issue of the Surrey Business News.
Is Your Head in the Clouds?
“Have you considered ‘Cloud Computing’ for your business? Should you? Is it an inevitable transition technology? David Williams of Interfuture Systems Ltd, an IT Consultancy and Services company, gives his insight into the confusion that surrounds the mother of all acronyms.
There’s been a lot conjecture around ‘the cloud’ when it comes to technology and IT in the past few years. Some will insist it’s a revolution as big as the advent of the microprocessor and that the cloud is quickly changing businesses as we know it, forcing it to rethink how it thinks about IT and its delivery in this ever connected world.
There is certainly a lot of truth here. But is it for every business – and to what extent?
By 2020, one third of all data will reside in, or go through, the cloud (Source: CRN publication 13/02/12).
This is an important statistic and one would think that this should be higher given the levels of interest, investment and furor around the whole technology.
However, if in eight years this is the suggested level of take-up, does it imply that where an apparent minority of businesses see it as an absolute strategic progression that transforms their operations and saves money, others may not agree and tentatively look to cherry pick elements of ‘the cloud’ into their operation as a hybrid mix of traditional in-house and cloud based solutions?
Or could it simply mean the majority of businesses will opt to stay with their on-site setup because it works, and works well? Should your business embrace this technology now and push it on as an inevitable progression to stay abreast with these technological changes?
This is the question that vexes a great number of SME businesses who continue to struggle with a fundamental understanding of what it is, what it can deliver and why.
In truth every organisation has its own specific needs and requirements – be that remote working, in-house applications (either off the shelf or bespoke), accounts systems either for simple day-to-day accounting or more complex manufacturing processing etc. as well as factoring in the location of the company offices and what level of communications are available.
There is absolutely no ‘fit all’ solution with the cloud for SME businesses and a careful review of all the elements is required to ensure thay when you do take the decision to float with the cloud it is done with a proper and considered approach.”
