I, like many others, haven’t been particularly impressed with Microsoft so far in the Enterprise Mobile space. They haven’t made it at all easy for web and native developers of enterprise apps with a history of poor browsers, different operating systems between their tablet and phone product lines, and a confused and difficult enterprise app distribution strategy.
Well, it must have hurt looking at those graphs which show the take up of Windows on mobile devices to be little more than noise level, not to mention reading the constant refrain of commentators saying, “Almost, but still not good enough”.
BlinkMobile Keeps Trinity Students and Parents Informed
Trinity Grammar School is an Anglican day and boarding school for boys. Located across four campuses in the inner western suburbs of Sydney, the school provides a holistic pre-kindergarten to Year 12 Christian education for more than 2,000 students.
As an independent school, Trinity understands that success depends on providing the best possible service not only to students but also to their families. The school encourages strong parental involvement, with teachers and the administration always accessible and ready to answer any questions.
One of Trinity's most valuable communications channels is its website. A primary source of parental information, the site publishes everything from the latest headmaster's news bulletin and contact information to event invitations, the school calendar and literally, hundreds of weekly sports fixtures. Links provide access to local bus and train timetables, and transport updates. The site also offers comprehensive contact information and an email mechanism for parents who wish to contact the school or their child's teacher.
The NBN has been a hot topic of discussion in recent years. It has featured as a main topic at political election debates, numerous analysts have discussed and written about the potentials it could bring to business within Australia, MMORPG gamers dreamt of the bandwidth they could harness to play and innovative companies such as BlinkMobile saw the potential for productivity increases all the way through it's various business units.
Early Adoption - Going From Theory To The Real World
When the NBN trucks rolled into New South Wale's Central Coast in early 2013, the 20 staff at BlinkMobile began salivating. The idea of a 100 mb/ps connection into a regional NSW office was one we could only dream of some 5 years ago.
We committed to signing up with iiNet on the plan that provided BlinkMobile with the largest amount of bandwidth possible. We fitted out the office with 1gb routers and ethernet connections to the desk. We ensured the technology used in house could harness the purported speeds the NBN would generate.
