Woman in STEM award 2019!

gethynellis.com is proud to sponsor the Woman in STEM award at the Woman’s Business Club conference 2019! The Women in STEM award recognises the outstanding contributions of woman in STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Over the past week, we have taken the time to get to know individual nominees. One thing that stands in each nominee is that they are proud not only of their successes in their career but they each consider the power of influence on other women they can have in STEM especially the younger
generations. As a male IT professional in a predominately male sector, I felt the strength and determination from each nominee to be the best in STEM and pave the way over the years to come. For this, I am proud to not only sponsor the Woman in STEM award but to meet each nominee face to face on the day and present the award to the winner.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all nominees on becoming finalists in the Woman
in STEM award 2019 and we look forward to meeting you all next week!

Is there a woman in STEM that inspires you?

Do you need to know about Microsoft Azure

The problem

You don’t know anything about Microsoft’s Azure Cloud.
Do any of the following describe you

  • You are running your business, and you’ve heard all about “the cloud” and how it helps your business. But you don’t know where to start. You know Microsoft products, but you don’t know about Microsoft’s cloud offering.
  • You work in IT, and your company has decided that cloud is the way forward and the new strategy is a “cloud-first approach”, and the cloud provider in question is Microsoft’s Azure.
  • Your company has started its cloud journey, but you feel a little left behind, you haven’t done any cloud work yet as you’ve been sorting out a big project with an on-premises solution. You want to get yourself up to speed so you can start working on Cloud-based projects delivering value to your business.


The Solution



On the 12th of December, we are running an Azure fundamentals training course. By attending this course, we will provide you with a general understanding of cloud computing concepts. We will discuss the core services available in Microsoft Azure. We will look at how you can quickly use these cloud resources to benefit your business. One of the significant concerns with cloud computing is security, and we will talk about how we can achieve security, compliance and trust with Microsoft Azure. We will have to show you how much this could cost and look at you can best set up your pricing model to get the most out of your investment.

At only £350 + booking fee / VAT (£295 +...early bird for the first five bookings) we believe this is excellent value. The full list of course objectives and to book, click here.

Cloud Computing: Myths, Mysteries, Vampires & Vultures - a free seminar to help you learn more about "the cloud".

To be honest you probably think that migrating to the cloud sounds great, and it can be, but… it’s not without risks and many people do not sufficiently understand what the consequences of their actions really are.



In this session we'll discuss:

  • What cloud options are there and what this might mean to your business?
  • What risks you are and aren't mitigating in migrating to the cloud?
  • What responsibilities remain yours as a result?
  • If it is a panacea for all your IT worries or if you will still need IT?
  • How to get the best out of the cloud for you?

Does any of this intrigue you? Or do you think someone you know might get unwittingly bitten and should be forewarned?

If so then please register here for our free webinar. If you register and find you can’t make the seminar, don’t worry we’ll make a recording of the webinar and make this available after the event.
