Learning from repetition

Posted on 14 August 2014 by Chris Grunwell

learning-from-repetitionEver noticed how quickly things come around again? No sooner than you've accomplished something, there it is again warranting your attention.

And now, I find myself having done my second, successfully summiting the infamous cycling climbs of the Col du Tourmalet and Hautacam on 20th July -however, this time around it was a very different story indeed!

The tenancy issue

Posted on 8 July 2011 by Simon Griffiths

In 2010 there was a debate between some of the major enterprise software influencers and bloggers on whether single or multi-tenancy was an issue for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications.

This debate is still going on.

Single-tenancy refers to a software configuration (application and database) in which each client has its own underlying application resources.

Maturing seamlessly

Imagine living in a world where we humans don’t age gradually: we do so in one leap every birthday.

The second birthday sees you suddenly walking and running unaided and making conversation. And so the process goes until a ripe old age. An ideal situation? I don’t think so.
