How to safely manage hybrid learning in the education sector
Posted by virtualDCS on 02 August 2021 05:26 PM
We are used to hearing plenty of stories about businesses moving to a hybrid way of working as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of which are now dealing with a range of new challenges that these changes have created.

It is not just the corporate world that has been forced to adapt its ways of working over the last 18 months or so. Educational institutions have also had to find new ways to deliver the services, that in many cases students have paid fees to receive. Anyone who

Exploring Hybrid Working
Posted by virtualDCS on 27 July 2021 03:16 PM
Prior to March 2020, only a handful of businesses had an alternative work from home model in place, but there is now a distinct drive towards a new Hybrid Working trend from both employees and employers.

What is Hybrid Working?

For anyone that is unaware, Hybrid Working is the latest buzzword for organisations as government restrictions lift and businesses make the move back to commercial, shared offices. Hybrid Working in its simplest form, is described as a

As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the way that many of us work. With workplaces closing their doors during lockdown, many previously office-based employees had to quickly move online to work remotely from home or in a hybrid role.

Why having a single data backup location is never enough
Posted by virtualDCS on 08 April 2021 11:14 AM

Last month, disaster struck at one of the world’s largest hosting providers. A fire at OVH’s Strasbourg site destroyed one of their data centres and badly damaged two others. The fire was serious enough that a number of their clients lost data. In some cases, that data loss was total.

Times are tough. Across every economy and every sector, businesses are struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Regardless of size, from FTSE 100 companies to SMEs, the pressure is increasing on businesses to tighten their belts.

So where are companies making the cuts? Unfortunately, IT is one of the areas where many companies are trying to make savings. Even as early as summer last year, more than half of US companies had

Why your data security needs to be more than a tick in a box
Posted by virtualDCS on 17 February 2021 10:29 AM
It is the kind of nightmare scenario that keeps IT managers up at night. A major Ransomware attack has completely disabled your systems. All of your business critical data and systems have been encrypted.

Your company grinds to a halt and you can’t operate until the data has been restored. In the meantime, you still need to pay your people. Your customers still expect you to give them the same level of service as before. Trust in your company is on the line.

But it is

Companies are losing business by using traditional phones
Posted by virtualDCS on 04 January 2021 09:10 AM
It’s time to optimise your calls for remote working.

Remote working presents us with many new challenges. One of the toughest is finding the best way to communicate, both internally and externally.

With more of us working remotely, getting hold of people can be difficult. Often, the number we have for a contact is a mobile, or a sales or customer service line which might not be answered, or won’t take us directly to the person we need.

Posted by virtualDCS on 11 December 2020 05:04 PM

It’s hard to imagine another time when effective data security in healthcare has been so important. The positive news around a working COVID-19 vaccine has been tempered by fears of security breaches and cyber-attacks on the very healthcare organisations who are researching the vaccines and running the immunisation programmes.

Lockdown 2.0: Remote working and the importance of backing up Microsoft 365
Posted by virtualDCS on 24 November 2020 02:01 PM

Another month, another lockdown. With any luck, Lockdown 2.0 will be considerably shorter and more effective than the first one. But however long it lasts, the latest Coronavirus restrictions are still having a dramatic and far-reaching impact on the way we all work and run our businesses.

The most significant consequence of the lockdowns we’ve endured in 2020 has been the increase in remote working. Even before the pandemic, trends indicated that

IT strategy review for a post-COVID world
Posted by virtualDCS on 02 July 2020 01:58 PM

The challenge for CTOs and IT managers as we return to the “norm” is – what will the post-COVID landscape look like? We’re operating in unknown territory, but what we do know is that change can happen quickly and we have to be able to adapt to survive.

Almost all businesses will have seen some impact from COVID19. The extent to which different organisations have been affected has varied hugely, and so there is no
