Embracing the new: Why learning and growth are essential in technology

There is always room for new learning, for new growth. In the world of technology things move so fast. New things are being invented all the time. New technologies, particularly cloud services, are a fertile ground for new technology innovation. It can be a challenge to remain current. What is all this new stuff capable of?

The Dangers of Living in a Bubble

You don’t know what you don’t know, especially if you don’t look. Worse still, there are whole organizations and communities that live in their own bubbles, detached from the rest of the world. If they don’t look outside, they are missing out. Potentially propagating myths or outdated ideas. It’s a bit like the fake news phenomenon. Opinions get propagated without proper understanding.

From Best Practice to Better Practice

What was best practice in the 1990’s, or even 2010, is likely to be replaced by new and better ideas and techniques today. (Although not always.) The antidote? Seek multiple views, just like you’d get multiple estimates to fix your roof or heating. Speak to those you trust, but even then, don’t rely on just one source or opinion.

Be careful out there. And if you’d like our opinion, we’ll be happy to chat.
