WANdisco claims big data sales breakthrough

WANdisco, the Sheffield-based software company that suffered a torrid 2014 on AIM, said major companies were beginning to adopt its ‘big data’ technology yesterday.

In a trading update the company said it signed contracts for the new service worth $2.1m in the fourth quarter, compared with zero a year earlier.

Dave Richards, WANdisco’s founder and chief executive, said its first contract expansion by an existing customer was “particularly encouraging”. Its largest-ever big data customer, British Gas, also signed a $750,000 deal in the quarter.

But the company has a long way to go to recover the losses suffered by its shareholders last year. The shares were as high as 1390p in February and as low as 255p in October.

In spite of the positive update yesterday they slid 5.1pc to close at 463p. Analysts said sales of WANdisco’s Application Lifecycle Management software, which monitors software development, were the “fly in the ointment with a relatively large miss versus expectations”.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
