niu Announces a Bold New Positioning and Brand

niu will enhance its emphasis on supporting clients' ambitions; focussing on innovation, agility and collaboration, whilst continuing to offer the range of IT solutions and managed services.

“Technology offers so much potential to businesses,” said Group Chief Executive Shaun Ledgerwood “but frequently the potential is hampered by increasing complexities in delivery, through navigating industry trends, and even a lack of core skills. At niu we’re placing our focus firmly on how our solutions offer potential to clients, the freedom we offer them to succeed.”

Ledgerwood, who today presented a bold new positioning and brand, was announced as Group Chief Executive in July 2014 having held senior positions at NextiraOne and SprintNextel.

“All too often the IT department is seen as a cost centre, not delivering the kind of opportunities of which we know it is capable. We believe that technology should help organisations achieve their goals and find new opportunities by making complex and difficult tasks simple.

“Today marks the culmination of a programme which I’ve driven since I started with niu,” said Ledgerwood. “Aligning our external branding and our operational teams, with our solutions and our internal culture, all around this singular purpose. Delivering the freedom to succeed to our clients, the ability to achieve their business goals and more.”

niu has been offering IT managed services to the retail, financial services and banking sectors since 2000, with clients such as JD Sports Fashion plc., Metro Bank and ITSU. ISO 9001/ISO 27001 accredited; IBM premier services partner and three-time Beacon Award winner.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
