Big data

Big data describes the large volume of data – both structured and unstructured – that inundates a business every day. But it’s not the amount of data that’s important. It’s what organisations do with it that matters. Big data can be analysed – to help make better decisions and important strategic moves.

App and web development

Software development is the process of computer programming, documenting, testing, and bug fixing to create and maintain applications and frameworks. It includes web design, web content development, client-side/server-side scripting, network security configuration and more.

Cloud computing

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services over the internet. It allows you to rapidly access IT resources on demand, anywhere, for a low cost. Companies can avoid upfront costs and the complexity of owning and maintaining their IT infrastructure by storing data in data centres that could be located far away.

Cyber security

Cyber security covers technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorised access. In computing, security includes both cyber security and physical security.

Enterprise middleware

Middleware is computer software that provides services to software applications. It's the software layer that lies between the operating system and applications. Middleware makes it easier for software developers to implement communication and input/output so they can focus on the specific purpose of their application.
