Welcome to the December Insentragram - Catching Up This Holiday Season
It’s been a big year for me both personally and professionally. This year I welcomed my new baby boy Austin.
Our crew and I have been focused on building and enriching several aspects of our business including growth and investment in New Zealand, North America and the EMEA regions. At the same time, we have set a BHAG (big, hairy, audacious goal) of doing $110m in revenue by the end of 2024 which you might have seen in the ARN article.
We have also engaged in an exciting new partnership with Torsion Information Security. Torsion’s offering delivers Secure Data Access Control, which helps organisation’s to manage the ‘Who has access to what’ data security issues in a world where data governance and compliance policies and procedures are increasingly under the microscope. We are thrilled to have them join the Insentra Train and you can read more about the offering on our website (you might spot something a bit different there too – more on this later!)
Lee Foster, Head of Global Solutions (pictured above) has recently developed a new offering – Architect as a Service (AaaS) which is getting significant interest from our Partners and their clients. In a 2, 3- or 4-day engagement targeted at executives, this service facilitates business transformation and improvement by leveraging an architect focused on understanding the true business objectives of an organisation – not the technology. The outcome is a vendor agnostic success roadmap including timeframes and rough order of magnitude investments. Be sure to check out Lee’s 3-part blog and his interview on “Insentra Insights” to get a better understanding.
Creating a positive workplace culture can be quite challenging for any business, big or small. But at Insentra we are always prioritising this and ensuring that our crew love coming to work everyday! With this in mind, I was lucky enough to be invited to speak with Clare Edwards, founder of BrainSmart on her podcast - Rawthentic Leadership where we discussed creating culture from scratch and how Insentra was founded on these beliefs.
If you listened to the above podcast, you will know that we have always believed a happy crew makes for happy clients. This year we are proud to announce coming third in the 2019 Great Places to Work Australia survey, which is testament to the belief our crew have in us to continue to provide a fantastic working environment. Have a read of how one of our longer-serving crew members – Penny Theodoulou - feels about working for us in her blog called “My years at Insentra – an Open Letter”. When I read this blog it literally made me cry because Penny’s experience exemplifies what I and our business aim to create for each crew member.
We are excited to be attending the Citrix Summit again in January of next year! Our crew who will be attending are myself, Matt Kaplan, Gary Cohen, Craig Pringle, Jody Elkins, Tim Hayden and Simon Altit. Please reach out to us at any point if you would like to meet up or if you have any questions.
2020 will also bring a big birthday for Insentra – we will turn 10!
Finally, aligned to the refreshed design of Insentragram, we have also undertaken a complete refresh of our website, which I’m excited to share with you here. We are thrilled to have a platform that represents who we really are at Insentra – Partner Obsessed IT professionals who do what they love in the service of people who love what they do.
Challenge IT - Simon
In this edition of Challenge IT, we meet Simon Altit, Director of EMEA. Simons curious nature and passion for process, outcomes and challenging the status quo has allowed him grow and globalise the Insentra business, whilst helping his crew make better decisions – personally and professionally.
Rawthentic Leadership - Podcast
In this episode, Clare and Ronnie discuss the importance of workplace culture and leading with love, that ensures Insentra’s crew love coming to work every day!
Our New Partnership - Torsion Information Security
In a world where the security and management of data is of upmost importance, we have partnered with Torsion Information Security to help deliver and distribute their unique offering and put the control back in the organisation’s hands.
Architect as a Service - Insentra Insights
Transformation must start somewhere and to facilitate this, our Architect as a Service (AaaS) offering sets the scene and provides a neutral and vendor agnostic roadmap for real business improvement. Read parts 1, 2 and 3 of Lee’s latest blogs, and watch his interview on Insentra Insights to get a better understanding of this service and what it has to offer.
