Some much needed enhancements for Teams – coming your way in May 2020

May 2020 is to be an exciting month for those of us who use Microsoft Teams, with some new features that will help overcome some irritations and limitations that have become more apparent in the past few weeks with us all decamping home to work

EasylifeIT™ appoints James Allison as Strategic IT Consultant

From today, 3rd April, I have joined EasylifeIT™ in the new role of Strategic IT Consultant.

Based out of our Norwich office, but working with clients across the UK, my job is to advise customers who do not need a full-time senior IT specialist, but could definitely benefit from some structured, strategic guidance periodically.  In practice that could mean helping clients with any or all of the following: choosing between bespoke or off-the-shelf software; developing business continuity plans; undertaking marketplace appraisals and running competitive tenders; practical cyber security advice; data protection auditing and planning; IT policy development and training; project management.
