The channel is changing. ‘Digital transformation’ is no longer just a buzzword, and clients are now demanding cloud-first technologies within their business.
But Vapour has been cloud-first since our inception in 2013. In fact, our company is built on four cornerstones of cloud-first excellence – voice, video, networks and storage. It’s all we know.find out more
It’s Adam’s turn in the spotlight this month – here he talks the latest mobile telecoms tech that’s caught his eye, frustrations surrounding overused industry acronyms and getting behind the wheel of a… PlayStation.
How did you first get into the world of tech?
I came in straight from school looking for a job in finance and happily stumbled on this opportunity!
And what is your earliest memory of tech in your life?
Being a toddler with the PlayStation steering wheel.
What’s the one quality you need to thrive in this environment (especially at Vapour)?
The ability and willingness to learn – luckily for me, is something I love to do. I’m keen to get up to speed with new, interesting things to help keep focused and drive forward to become better in my role and abreast with this ever-changing environment.
And what is the one thing you would change about the tech sector?
Like so many other sectors, the confusing words and over-used abbreviations.
Why do you think Vapour stands out in the channel?
The people. When you look at other competitors you see formal colleagues – suits – doing the same things over and over. When you come to Vapour, the people make the business tick. Colleagues that put their all into their work ensure the company thrives. Teamwork sets us apart.
Complete the sentences:
The best piece of tech ever invented is... the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Although it isn’t the best design or finish, I think the idea of building a phone that can become larger and easier to see, is amazing!
The next purchase on my (personal) tech wishlist is... an iPad Pro. I like the idea that I could use it as a computer or a large phone to be more productive.
A tech firm that has really stood out for me in the last 12 months is... Samsung (no surprise there perhaps, given my earlier answer). They have come out with the folding phones and started a new design and category of phones. I think they’re leading the way in fresh tech and it will be interesting to see how the market responds.
The biggest misconception in the channel is that... you just plug a router into a wall and then you magically have WiFi! It’s a common mistaken belief among ‘non-techies’ but there is so much more that goes into it.
By the end of 2020, our tech will have made organisations far more... connected. We have so any technologies that empower our customers to collaborate and work smarter.
