The Mo Can Go as Movember Ends

Posted on Thursday 1st December 2016 12:30

“Mo-Bros & Mo-Sistas” worldwide are celebrating their fundraising efforts as Movember Ends, and the Influential team is no exception. With funds successfully raised and then matched by Influential, our Support Team participants are ready for a shave.

Influential Movember Ends

It’s December 1st, which means that Movember has officially come to an end. Our participating support team members have been doing their part, growing and grooming their moustaches throughout the month, but shaving-day has finally arrived.

Movember’s purpose is to raise awareness and donations to tackle men’s health issues; the goal is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by the year 2030. The movement has raised millions globally since its start in 2003, funding thousands of men’s health projects worldwide.

The last day of Movember has come, so it’s off with my salt and pepper tash,” said Richard Walls, Influential Head of Support and Movember Team Captain. “The Daves are glad to shed theirs too! It’s been worth it though if it’s raised awareness of men’s health issues and raised cash for the Movember charities. Thanks to all of those who have donated and I’m proud of Influential Software Services Ltd for their pledge to match those donations. There’s still time to donate so please don’t be shy.

The amount raised as of November 30th was £252, but it’s not too late to show your support and get your donations in. As promised at Movember’s start, Influential has pledged to match our team’s final donation number.

Big Data Revolution: Influential review Big Data LDN 2016

Posted on Monday 28th November 2016 2:30

A Big Data Revolution took place in London this November, at the Big Data LDN event. Influential teams were delighted to attend and engage in discussions and demonstrations of the latest technologies from leading industry providers.

The Big Data Revolution

Big Data, Revolutionised

This month the Influential Java Team joined the ‘big data revolution’ at Big Data LDN  (London), a two-day event about Big Data, Analytics, and building Data-Driven Enterprises. Our developers attended talks from industry leaders, heard positive case studies from global corporations and were able to view technical demonstrations of all the latest products in action.

Two greatly discussed subjects at the event were Data Visualisation and Data Analytics:

Big Data LDN Talks

Data Visualisation – a key part of our business, our developers were keen to attend the talks about data visualisation from companies like Microsoft, with their product: Power BI. Visualising your data is vital to understanding it. At Influential we know this very well and work with a variety of tools to deliver this feature to our clients, including SAP Lumira and Dynistics . We have even developed our own BI platform, ATLAS Publishing Intelligence.

For our developers, the event talks confirmed the importance of presenting data in an effective manner. Java team member Todd commented that the event effectively “demonstrated a writer or analyst’s responsibility to choose the right data to display.”

Data Analytics – the Big Data LDN Exhibition provided the chance for our team to discuss data analytics with representatives from IBM. As Advanced Business Partners, Influential developers are always interested to view demonstrations of the latest Cognos  product versions and functionality. Data analytics and reporting are core to the Business Intelligence and software development work we do, so demonstrations and talks such as these are invaluable.

Be Part Of the Big Data Revolution!

At Influential we’re passionate about technology and we pride ourselves on continuous innovation and exploration of the latest tools and platforms available. The Big Data LDN event topics were all in line with our ethos of keeping on the cutting edge as a business, offering insights and examples of the range of technologies that we can offer our customers.

“We got a lot out of the day,” said our Head of Development, Pete Halloran. “The talks were full of great insights and I was delighted to meet with the Microsoft BI speaker after his talk, to understand the potential of the product for our clients.”

Technology does not stand still, so nor do we. We’re committed to doing our part to maintain expertise and knowledge of the best tools and platforms available, and ensuring our teams keep up-to-date with their specialist skillsets is a top priority at Influential. This, combined with a critical understanding of the challenges that our clients face, makes us expertly equipped to provide the best solutions possible.

Influential Support Movember

Posted on Tuesday 1st November 2016 3:30

The Influential teams are doing their part for charity once again – this time by participating in the annual men’s health awareness movement ‘Movember’.

Influential Support Team For Movember

(Above: Our Support Team cleanly shaven on Day 1)

The rules are simple: those participating will be cleanly shaven from November 1st and for the duration of the month will grow and groom a moustache as a symbol for awareness of men’s health issues. Participants gain further support for the cause through sponsorship by friends and family, all of which goes to the funding of educational programs and men’s health projects.

Influential team members have taken part in the movement in previous years and are excited to support the charity once again. This year Richard Walls, David Avery and David Hailwood of the Influential Support Team are taking part, with sponsorship already being pledged by colleagues throughout the company.

Influential For Men’s Health

The mission of Movember is to tackle men’s health on a global scale, all year round addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

The charity finds and funds innovative research that impacts locally and globally, having funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects worldwide in the past 3 years. By 2030 they will reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.

The impact of this work is of particular importance to our participating team, some of whom have family members directly affected by men’s health issues. Independent of government funding, the money raised through Movember sponsorships is critical to achieving these goals.

To support our teams to the fullest in this endeavour, Influential Software will match the personal donations raised by our teams.

A “stellar” line-up of speakers has been promised including 80+ engineering gurus, open-source visionaries and real-world pioneers – all of whom are ready to deliver their “cutting-edge” practical advice to the eager delegates.

An Influential Day at the MuleSoft® Summit 2016

Posted on Wednesday 26th October 2016 4:00

As Official MuleSoft partners, Influential was excited to attend the MuleSoft Summit in London last week. An event driven by the innovation of technology and business, the day offered a fantastic insight into the power of MuleSoft’s work and their vision for the future…

Greg Schott CEO

It’s October 19th, 2016 at The Chiswell Street Brewery London and the air is filled with the murmurs of anticipation. Several of Influential’s team members are among the 500 eager business partners and customers that watch the house lights dim. The music starts, the stage lights up; The MuleSoft Summit has begun.

Enter stage left; Greg Schott, MuleSoft CEO (pictured right). He welcomes everyone to the event and expresses his excitement that today we have the chance to learn and engage with their vision.

Engaging Digital Transformation

MuleSoft is one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the world. As such, we were sure that the MuleSoft Summit would be a day full of exciting innovation and stories of their powerful technology in action – it did not disappoint.

We stand at the start of a new phase of technological transformation and MuleSoft is among those ready to welcome it with both hands. The Summit was an excellent opportunity to learn about and engage with their vision.

The day’s message was the need for digital transformation; how enterprises can no longer afford to ignore the rapid changes in technologies, or the heavy demand on IT to keep up. The Anypoint Platform™, built on API-led connectivity plays a crucial part in building the ‘Application Network’ that MuleSoft believes is the solution to the IT delivery gap.

Key members of the MuleSoft team including the CEO, CTO, CPO (Chief Product Officer) & others took their turns on stage, offering insights into the future of the enterprise landscape and the part that MuleSoft has to play. The day also included a first-hand testimonial about the impact of MuleSoft technology on business by Dixons Carphone Group CIO, Simon Post.

MuleSoft: Driving Innovation

The day was a resounding success, for both customers new to the platform and for members of the partnership program that we are thrilled to be part of.

Influential Developer meets MuleSoft Max

Beyond the main keynote speeches, MuleSoft delivered something for everyone by running specialist ‘tracks’. Business seminars were run for those looking to leverage MuleSoft and understand how the AnyPoint platform can drive core business practises and success.

Breakout sessions for ‘Developer’ and ‘Advanced Developer’ covered everything from beginner-level design and build of MuleSoft applications to applied microservice architecture and managing API lifecycles.

Our Architecture specialists were treated to a track addressing the challenges of both enterprise and solution architecture, with sessions about microservices, the Application Network and the role of architects in IT’s new operating model.

It was exciting to see so many other partners and prospective businesses there, all of them – like us – keen to tackle the digital transformation challenge head-on.
