In December 2019, Cloudbrew took place in Mechelen (Belgium). Hosted by the AZUG user group and proudly sponsored by AE, Cloudbrew is an annual – and free – two-day cloud conference that focuses on all things Microsoft Azure. This year’s edition saw Koen Verbeeck, one of our very own consultants, take to the stage with a session on ‘Moving Data around in Azure’, in which he explored some of the various methods of moving data from one service to another. Did you miss out on the event? Not to worry. In this blog post, we gladly summarize Koen’s findings for you!
At d-sides/ AE we have set up a garage initiative as a community for working with emerging technology. Luckily for us, it’s not a boring empty box for cars to park, but a creative space with all kinds of hardware that you can experiment with. One of the goals with this garage initiative is to gain hands-on experience with new tech, e.g. like computer vision with neural networks. An important aspect of this is that it is an open community for all colleagues to collaborate and elaborate on ideas. So, the myth of the AE Garage begins!
We live in a talent economy and now more than ever, companies are realizing that with great people comes great business success. With the rise of 'Great Place to Work' contests and the popularity of LinkedIn, HR departments have gained significant strategic importance over the past few decades. Companies have recognized that when they have a well-balanced and happy employee base, this reflects in every other part of the business.
In our latest post, we have talked about the personalisation shift that companies face today. New technologies and changing customer expectations force organisations to critically review their processes and use innovative technology to create value for their clients.
This is no different in banking and insurance. Financial services providers have to take on a more supportive role as an advisor for their clients, preferably approaching them as individualised as possible. After all, customers simply see through hollow, automated messages. They expect to receive only relevant information that makes a difference for them on a personal level.
In our latest AE Financial Services newsletter we elaborated on why we, at AE Financial Services, are convinced that offering your clients a relevant and personalized experience is a key differentiator in the world of financial services. Do you agree? And so does the rest of your organization?
