Hello everyone and welcome to August’s newsletter. I hope you had a good summer month whether you managed to get away on an overseas holiday (lucky you!), camping/holidaying in the UK, or for the party goers, to a festival. I enjoyed the Bank Holiday break back in Ilfracombe in North Devon, and it was lovely to catch up with family and friends.
We did end up seeing that August was ‘back to normality’ - being a slightly quieter month this year with school holidays and people taking a break, which in many respects was good to see people and the country getting, dare I say, back to normal. Oh yes and if we didn’t have enough football over the summer with the Euros, the football season is back!
With September approaching, it’s great to see the return of real-life face-to-face conferences! Prism are proud to be sponsoring and involved with Blueprint LDN in the Olympia, London on the 22nd-23rd September. More information in the newsletter below!
August saw some wonderful news (in my opinion!) that ‘UK Plc’ has decided to scrap the web cookie requests in a post-Brexit data revamp! Clearing cookies and accepting cookie requests was jolly annoying, bravo! Full article below.
It was good to see recently that business confidence in the UK has jumped to a new four-year high as the country bounces back from the pandemic, according to the latest Lloyds Bank Business Barometer. This is certainly something we have recognised here on the ground, with many of our clients going through impressive growth periods and looking to expand their teams significantly. It’s great to see after a tough year and a half and hopefully it continues!
In that vein, August saw a continuing stream of new DevOps and Cloud roles from old and new clients covering an interesting industry range; from PropTech, FinTech, Global market research firms, to social media disrupters, the list goes on! If you’re looking for a new role in the DevOps/Cloud space, do get in touch, or if you’re looking to hire in the DevOps and Cloud space, we’d like to hear from you equally!
As always, if you want to talk to me about the market, DevOps trends, etc. do not hesitate to get in touch, Book a call with me here
I hope you’ve all had a great month and are looking forward to September.
Businesses should consider picking up the pace of their cloud migrations to do their bit to help tackle climate change, the UK government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has advised.
As Covid-19 forced businesses to adopt a remote model, the attack surface expanded and grew increasingly complex. To tackle the problem, enterprises were forced to invest more in Security Operations (SecOps) and hybrid cloud deployments.
