Technology

Technology is the collection of techniques, methods or processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, etc. or it can be embedded in machines, computers, devices and factories, which can be operated by individuals without detailed knowledge of the workings of such things. We frequently refer to tech companies which can be in different areas e.g. infotech, meditech, pharmatech and so on

In a Nutshell is a lighthearted look at a person involved in IT. We kick off with Janice Grant Shaw the founder of Company Connecting. Next week we will be hearing from  Mike Plested of Chanonry Consulting.

On the 27th August 2015 Matt Hancock, the Minister for the Cabinet Office announced a new target for small business’ to work in the public sector: 33% of government spending should go to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The government definition of an SME is those employing 250 employees or less. In IT, this would be a pretty sizeable company. Currently Company Connecting only has detailed figures for Scotland and our figures show that 97% of IT tech companies registered in Scotland have less than 250 employees.

In the early 80s I started my career in IT as a trainee programmer working in a software bureau where the proportion of men and women were more or less equal. In fact, my second boss was female. In these early days we did everything. We wrote code,   we managed what was then a complicated process of printing and distributing reports, and we could re generate the whole computer from a cold start.
