Holidays are coming….

December is the great month of the year in my opinion as the year is winding down we all look forward to our traditional annual breaks. It also has its own chaos and troubles but the overall sense of achievement at work, home, school and community is usually high during this month of the year.

At jEyLaBs, We tend to work on a lot of support, migration, upgrades, health checks, training and envisioning projects during this time. jEyLaBs is offering end of year incentives to customers and partners to help close the quarter on a high for all.

If you need extended support cover over the holiday period from December onwards please get in touch with sales@jeylabs.com.au as we have special offerings to assist you. We can look after tasks for your staff on extended leave even up to February 2015.

Best wishes!!

Cloud storage price cuts actually cut deeper than you think, they will cut everything and touch everyone….

We all love a bargain. Free offerings and heavily discounted pricing of cloud storage is the trend in town. The pricing war between AWS, Azure, Google, Rackspace, Apple, Box, DropBox and numerous other current and emerging cloud players is very intense. I think it is getting to a point that soon you could be paid cash to store your files on their platforms.

The race to zero as its called could get there sooner than we think. It may even go further into negative territory in the form of consumers earning money to store data. I would love that. User generated content is definitely valuable and worth the money.

The real deal is what companies are trying to get you to buy by offering storage for free. The race to zero has changed marketing, offerings and perception of value massively. Cloud is actually for the benefit of big players. The bigger youare the more you make and the huge you become.

Look at apple for an example. Their rise in terms of brand, stock price and influence is dramatic. How many apps and services offered by them for a fee are free now. Operating system, productivity tools and storage all have freemium pricing. Look at pebble, Apple watch, Microsoft watch and a few more out there. After iWatch’s announcement Pebble has changed their tag line recently to something sounds like the most affordable watch.

Microsoft released free office apps on all platforms recently and they were topping the charts in most app stores. Microsoft is seriously going cross platform, open source and giving away dev tools to attract more developers to .NET platform.

If we look at DropBox, which runs on AWS they are now rushing to innovate thanks to Amazon competing with its own customer by offering similar but much cheaper offering.

This pricing war is real and serious. Big players relying on winning big market share in Asia knows, In Asia, you haggle. Works like a charm when your buying power is big. This is going to change and challenge the value perceived in everything everywhere. The Race to Zero is going to impact everyone and Innovation is the currency in this Asian century.

Consolidating K2 databases is a MUST

Prior to K2 blackpearl 4.6, multiple databases on the same SQL instance were created during the installation of K2 blackpearl.

With clean installs of 4.6 and later, a single database is created. If previous versions are upgraded to 4.6 or later, the multiple databases are upgraded but not consolidated.

Maintaining a Single consolidated K2 database is much easy. We strongly recommend our clients to consolidate.

The K2 Database Consolidation Tool is used to consolidate multiple K2 databases into a single database.

Please contact K2 Support in order to receive the correct version of the K2 Database Consolidation Tool for your environment.

More information on the tool can be obtained here on this KB – http://help.k2.com/kb001628

Removing paper and pain for Clinical Trial sites…

At the beginning of this year, jEyLaBs partnered with TrialDocs to deliver paper-less clinical trial solutions. We wanted to change this industry as we found inefficiencies were plaguing the advancement of critical clinical research. In particular the needs of the trial sites were completely ignored by the major players. There was nothing to help reduce time-wasting document management practices. We wanted to make this history and set on the journey to deliver a solution that worked exactly the way the industry wanted and needed.

TrialDocs’ years of experience played the core role in bringing the ideas and effective approaches to solving the information challenges. jEyLaBs brought innovative cloud and mobile technology with years of proven enterprise scale solution delivery capabilities. We worked as a team, combining our expertise and passion for solving information challenges.

The result is already in production use and numerous sites across ANZ region are using our solution to advance clinical trial research. Allan Bukuya, Trial Docs director of clinical operations, presented this solution at the VARN conference last week to a stunned audience.

How to Accelerate your success with K2 projects?

K2 as a technology platform has been a choice of many Australian organisations to streamline their businesses. I have worked with some great organisations and well known brands in the country on these projects over the years. My team at jEyLaBs has been delivering K2 projects for over 5 years now and our K2 Centre of Excellence has been growing in numbers year on year.

Successful Project delivery is all about understanding the stakeholders, their changing needs and managing the challenges that comes along during the project. A very well decorated Project management professional told me this years ago. He also told me that any PM is only as successful as the last project she managed.

Statistics say that General IT project activity is on the rise and so are the project failures. Over 33% of all projects reported have been failed. The point is 1 in every 3 projects are failing. This is not a good thing.

Bulk of our experience delivering K2 projects has been rescuing those failing or failed projects. This gives us a unique perspective and insights into project failures and how best to deliver projects when it comes to K2 technology. jEyLaBs held an event on this topic.

Here’s my tip. Delivering success is all about the timing. Acceleration of delivery is the essence here. Deliver it now and deliver it daily. jEyLaBs Deliver Daily and TEAMUP methodologies are all about this.

If you accelerate your small successful pieces of delivery you will ultimately succeed with the project.

We believe in running Project specific training, using Project Specific tools such as PowerToolz for K2 and following tailored best practices to suit your team and tasks.
