Innovation Hub

Welcome to our news and blog section. Here you will find the latest updates from theICEway and our IT specialists at ICE. We are frequently invited to attend and speak at industry events, so if you don’t want to miss out on those, this is the page for you.

With more than 20 years’ worth of experience in cruise, travel and healthcare, you will also be able to read more about these key sectors. Of course, at the heart of it all is Information Technology – which some of you may know as ‘IT’ – and we’ll certainly include news on that.

Our ecosystem of companies was founded upon 3 guiding principles, or values: People, integrity and innovation. We always aim to infuse our every effort with one or all of these. The first, ‘people’, includes not only our people, but also those we work alongside each day. If you are reading this, then you can rest assured that it also includes you.

As such, we welcome your comments and feedback so do join in the conversation. You can also follow us on social media using the links below.

by Asa Sargeant | November 24, 2021 | General News & Events | 0 Comments

As we near the end of another month, it is time to look back on some key IT-related updates that have emerged. We begin with a huge milestone for our CRIBB Cyber Security brand. Next up is a very recent story on VR in healthcare before we turn our attentions to advances being made in quantum computing. Here then is your IT News Round-up Nov 2021.

CRIBB Cyber Security, Est. 2016

Our fellow colleagues on theICEway turned 5 years old this month and we couldn’t be happier! Regular readers of our ICE blog will know that we turn 15 next year but it is CRIBB’s time to celebrate first. They are even allowing you in on the fun, with FOC cyber-risk consultations available. All you have to do is to contact them and you will be one step closer towards achieving cyber resilience…

VR Headsets To Be Used To Assess Surgery for Children

This story from BBC News is on innovative technology in healthcare. VR goggles may help parents to better understand the implications of brain surgery. Through the use of these, the risks involved can be viewed virtually beforehand. We carry out a lot of work in the vital healthcare sector, so it is great then to see this type of innovation.

IBM Unveils An Advanced “Quantum” Processor

Another story from the BBC, this is well worth a read for those interested in IT. It remains to be seen whether or not IBM’s claims will prove significant but their new chip has twice as many “qubits” as their previous processor (127). Qubits – aka Quantum bits – are essentially the most basic information units in a quantum computer.

That is all for our IT News Round-up Nov 2021 – what do you think of the stories selected here? Were there any others from November you feel worthy of inclusion? Let us know in the comments below or click here to read our previous round-up.
