ANS Reveal RAPID and New Website


The third and final RAPID Launch event from ANS took place today at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester. Over 60 technology leaders from in and around the North West gathered to hear inspiring presentations from the world of IT as far flung as Santa Barbara, California. Technology innovation across every industry was discussed with the agenda featuring: David Hutton Sales Director, ANS, Andy Barrow CTO, ANS Mark Johnson Head of Networking services, ANS, Kevin McGibben, CEO at LogicMonitor, Tracey Scotter Director of ICT at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals and Chris Smith Group IT Infrastructure Manager at Greencore Group

Technology is no longer the differentiator

Andy Barrow CTO at ANS got things off to a fantastic start as he discussed how John Deere launched a new global suite of advanced solutions under the name John Deere FarmSight. FarmSight integrates wireless technology into arable and livestock farms, the contractor’s business and the John Deere dealership to a much deeper level than ever before. John Deere advanced solutions and services were launched to provide a service to customers that their rivals could not. It’s no longer about the utility in the marketplace or the cost of that the utility but the service package going above and beyond the technology at play. Service innovation and application development is happening within every industry, traditional businesses who do not innovate or develop must prepare to fail.

Put a robot in a hospital

Andy was not alone in this idea. Tracey Scotter, Director of ICT at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals
discussed how within the Trust they not only utilise technology to drive innovation but to add real business value back into the NHS. Kevin McGribben CEO at LogicMonitor (a technology partner of ANS) described how the company he founded, are now the poster child for automation. As a company with only 135 team member, infrastructure build is completely automated, humans can no longer compete with machines in this area.

The overwhelming message from the day is that there’s no such thing as a traditional business anymore, every business is becoming a digital business. The race to digitisation has now begun.
