Atlantic People: 2019 Highlights

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” Confucius 

 

We learn a lot about a company through reflection. We learn from past data to make decisions and move forward. We learn from past experiences, how to manage employee expectations and ensure key people are on board. So, today, as the Atlantic Technologies UK team looks back at our year, we reflect on the direct correlation between opportunity and change.

 

Team

 

At the start of the year, you would have walked into the Atlantic Technologies London office to find three friendly faces greeting you. The three founding directors of our London Office, Mike, Fred and Pamela, have worked hard to grow a synergetic team that will value each client as much as we do. We will be entering into 2020 with 20 employees. We would like to welcome our most recent employee, Mohammed Jasset, Programme Lead Director. Collectively we now have 50 Salesforce Certifications to our name. Helena our first UK female employee has been working alongside our team to ensure we are supporting women in tech, we have since hired an additional 4 women and are always on the lookout for our next employee. Expanding into a larger office space, we have created a more welcoming workspace integrating wellbeing concepts. We have placed three clocks on our wall to remind ourselves of the three key cornerstones of the company – Milan, London and Denver – the bigger picture that we are part of. Creating a comforting working environment that prioritises our existing and prospective employees is high on our agenda for 2020 as we grow together.

 

Community

 

Our internal community isn’t the only one we have worked hard to nurture in 2020. With events such as our monthly Thursday Afternoon Club, the success of our Breakfast Briefing at The Gherkin, and attending regular Salesforce events such as Salesforce World Tour in London, we are grateful to the wider Tech community for our growingly collaborative industry. This year we have taken part in Strictly Tech Dancing, the Salesforce Regatta, as well as Tennis and Golf Tournaments encouraging a healthy dose of competition and community.

 

Partnership

 

Atlantic Technologies UK is proudly working alongside six carefully selected partners to give each of our clients the opportunity to work with techs most innovative, award-winning movers and shakers. Alongside Salesforce UK, we welcome Natterbox, Precursive, SalesTrip, Conga and Wolf Hodson to the Atlantic Technologies family. You will be seeing a lot more from these names in the new decade.

 

From the beginning of 2019 to the end of 2024, worldwide spending on public cloud computing will grow 19% a year, from $147 billion to $418 billion. Meanwhile, spending on non-cloud software will only grow at 3% a year.’ Source: International Data Corporation

 

In 2019 we saw Salesforce reaffirm its evolution into a household name. With a projection of continued growth driven by the benefits of its products and an established reputation for driving business innovation, now is the time to understand how digital transformation and the Internet of Things will prepare your business for the immediate and foreseeable future.

If there is one thing we learnt from our end-of-year office party, it is the importance of taking the time to understand the individuals that are driving our company forward. By combining digital transformation, our understanding of people, hard work and time, we can build a new style of data. An accurate bigger picture to reflect on, learn wisdom and make decisions. 2019 was the year of team, community and partnership. 2020 is the decade of embracing change. Get in touch to make the first move.
