There's only one chance to be a 'new starter'. What a golden opportunity this has been - to experience what it is like to roll up as a new employee and be introduced to IT at Nottingham.
I ask for the standard. What do you normally give the mobile professional? What do you recommend? I have simple needs …..I want one device. I want to move around from wired to wireless, and get to my data wherever I am. I work at home a lot. Please let me take my office home with me. (I'm in my kitchen now.) I want to know my data is backed up and safely encrypted. I want to be able to work off-line on the train sometimes and know that my email and data will synchronise again as soon as I'm reconnected. I need a core set of applications.
But there are no standard services it seems.
I feel like someone who went to a garage to buy a car - something to get me quickly and safely from A to B. What I'm given disappoints. It is a long list of parts...an engine, a few wheels, a gear box. I'm sure it's a great engine but I don't want to assemble the parts myself, not even if there is a great instruction book. (There isn't an instruction book.)
When I talk about service, I mean "a means of delivering value to customers by facilitating outcomes customers want to achieve without the ownership of specific costs and risks". I just want a safe, convenient and comfortable way of getting from A to B. You are the experts guys. Walk tall and tell me the best way to do that.
