Where the bloody hell are you?

Posted on 20 Dec 2012 in chuck | 0 comments

It’s exactly a year since I’ve posted here….where the bloody hell have I been?

In mid 2011 I started to work with a small company just starting out called Geoplex. It’s a real challenge keeping a young small business going. As a company we looked at the way Geospatial services and technology was traditionally delivered into organisations and we felt it could be done better. Our customers are demanding more – and so they should. They’re seeking new ideas about how to apply spatial technology and are looking for more cost effective models of delivery. It’s a really exciting space to be in and its great to be able to say that Geoplex has been welcomed with open arms into the Australian market. A big big thank you to all our customers for making it a great 2012.

It’s been a truly crazy year. We’ve delivered projects ranging from augmented reality native mobile applications to web based mapping solutions. Within enterprises we’re working with teams who are embracing change and looking for new ways to deliver value, we’re helping them build capability, and helping them to inter-operate more effectively with their partners. The new year brings new clients with some exciting and ambitious projects. I’m really glad to be working in a small team of talented individuals who all enjoy practising their craft on a daily basis.

As far as what 2013 has in store? We’re talking more and more to our customers about using the web as the backbone for data and service provision rather than building stand alone applications – which is great – I hope to see some projects come off the ground next year in this space. Our customers are increasingly moving away from solely relying on single vendor proprietary technology and as a development team we’re increasingly using open source technology and cloud based services whether that be platform, infrastructure or software, so I think we’ll see that trend continue.

To cut the story short during 2012 I’ve been head down, and arse up and I’m sorry if you were expecting Lara Bingle.

Ho Ho Ho.
