After a Masters in Computer Science, I decided that I preferred writing about IT rather than programming. My 20-year writing career has taken me to Hong Kong and London where I've edited and written for IT, business and electronics publications. In 2002 I co-founded Futurity Media with Stewart Baines where I continue to write about a range of topics such as unified communications, cloud computing and enterprise applications.

Cisco’s annual IP traffic report predicts that enterprise traffic will double again between 2014 and 2019, which will put a massive strain on existing enterprise infrastructure. Despite shrinking budgets, IT departments need to act because network congestion can have a wide-ranging impact on business productivity and profitability.
