DOUGLAS, Isle of Man, Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The ICM Group board of directors has announced the appointment of a high profile non-executive chair, Jo Haigh, as of 01 January 2014. Winner of the 2013 Sunday Times Non-Executive Director of the Year award, in association with Peel Hunt, Jo Haigh is a highly experienced businesswoman and a regular presenter for the Institute of Directors.

Based on the Isle of Man, with associated offices in London, Jersey, Antibes and Monaco, the ICM Group is a successful, privately owned corporate service provider, which specialises in wealth management solutions, yachting and aviation. Founded in 1984, the Group has grown steadily over the years and now has 70 employees.

Mark Byrne, ICM Group director specialising in aviation and wealth management, told us why the time was right to make the appointment:

"Even with the economic turbulence encountered since 2008 we have enjoyed continuous growth and, with confidence returning, we believe that our expansion will continue. Although growth is always welcome, it inevitably comes with increased complexity and new challenges. We feel that we have reached the next stage of the company's development and recognise that we need to enhance our ability to think strategically whilst remaining focussed.

Jo's background and experience, together with her independence as a non-executive, will ensure that our assumptions are tested and our actions are timely and appropriate. We were overjoyed when Jo accepted our invitation and we look forward to working with her. We have found a world-class entrepreneur who will make a huge difference to how we run and expand our business."

Jo Haigh recently launched her fifth book, The keys to the boardroom: How to get there and how to stay there. With five best-selling books to her name, 300 companies bought and sold and over 40 non-executive roles, Jo Haigh knows her subject. Jo told us:

"Over the years I have been very fortunate to hold a number of prestigious roles as non-executive director. This is my second chair position and I was flattered to be asked to join ICM for whom I have massive respect. I most enjoy working with growing and ambitious businesses and ICM is no exception. I have already spent three very productive days with the board and the senior management team and I am hugely impressed by their skills and enthusiasm to continue to build an even better business."

This new appointment comes as the ICM Group celebrates its 30th anniversary and prepares for a big move to new headquarters in Douglas. With a presence in London, Monaco, Jersey and Antibes, and contacts all over the globe, the ICM Group of companies is well placed to grow and expand into new markets whilst retaining its reputation for looking after its clients, sector knowledge and forward thinking.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
