Making a strategic decision: what’s at the core of your Modern Workplace?

The world of IT is changing. In the last 5 years, we have witnessed the long-anticipated shift on how IT services are provided to an organisation.

The power of ideas: Insync at UHack with Microsoft Surface Hub

The IT Department of the University of Tasmania looks down on Sandy Bay from the top of the campus. The Centenary Building overlooks the footy oval at the bottom of the hill.
