AusCorp Connect Pty Review Key Motivators for Entrepreneurs

Thursday 4 September, 2014
With entrepreneurship on the rise, Sydney-based  AusCorp Connect Pty, take a look at what makes entrepreneurship so satisfactory and what motivates today’s entrepreneurs. AusCorp Connect Pty knows that there are many benefits to becoming an entrepreneur the most obvious benefit of course being the option to be your own boss and having  control  of when you work, but there are several others. Research indicates that small business owners are more satisfied than employees with regard to life conditions, career opportunities, financial situation, personal safety, health and feeling like a part of their community. Individuals often choose to become entrepreneurs to take advantage of opportunities such as, achieving financial independence, working with family or living a more suitable lifestyle. Although there are so many benefits to becoming an entrepreneur AusCorp Connect Pty says that they face a lot of challenges that would simply never come up if they were a standard employee. There are several financial risks, especially in times of economic downturn, which can sometimes lead to stress and depression. There is the risk of not knowing the market well enough before trying to inject a new or improved product into it. There is also a credibility risk; people are more likely to buy from a well-known label or brand and often it is only the name that gets a product to sell. Entrepreneurs worry whether their brand will be good enough to compete with these big names. And inevitably there is the risk of failure. However, these risks are very rewarding, both economically and socially, when they pay off. But with all these challenges and risks that come with being an entrepreneur AusCorp Connect Pty is looking at what motivates today’s entrepreneurs and what keeps them determined to continue through the challenges and reap the benefits. A common motivator for entrepreneurs is the desire for independence. The individual wants to assume full control of their working conditions and their outcomes and potentially the need for financial independence. Money can also be a big motivator, many individuals see owning a business as an opportunity to build greater wealth than those in employment receiving the same pay check every month. Often a big motivator is the wish to build a family business that can provide career opportunities for the owner’s spouse, children and future generations of the family tree. Many like the idea of passing on a money-making family business to their offspring. For some it is the working hours and conditions that gives them motivation, the ability to set their own working hours and conditions is a desirable quality of entrepreneurship. For others they simply want to do something they love and have a passion for, the opportunity to be creative in the workplace by choosing what work they undertake, when they do it and how. AusCorp Connect Pty is an outsourcing provider located in Australia. The firm develop and execute engaging direct marketing campaigns that take their clients’ products straight to their target demographic. They build strong, personal relationships with consumers by engaging with them face-to-face, this helps to generate extended loyalty and awareness for their clients’ brands.

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embr...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
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...
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that pro...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...

If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity. We came from monolithic computing to client-server to services to microservices to the serverless model. In other words, our systems have slowly “dissolved” from monolithic to function-...
