What Intellectual Curiosity means to me

What Intellectual Curiosity means to me

One of the four core 1E values is Intellectual Curiosity; this is a short piece on what that value means to me. It’s not about gathering knowledge simply for knowledge sake. Instead it's figuring out how to apply our knowledge in new and effective ways to create innovative solutions for our customers. I'm inspired by the fact that some of the recent advances in software development have involved "standing on the shoulders" (an Isaac Newton quote) of past intellectual giants. Engineers have [...]

Blog 1000 - Sumir Karayi looks back at 17 years of 1E

Blog 1000 – Sumir Karayi looks back at 17 years of 1E

To mark the milestone of our 1000th blog, Sumir Karayi CEO looks back over the past 17 years and the development of the innovative IT cost optimization solutions of 1E. What is interesting is that when we started the business in 1997, the core focus and the IT problems that we were dealing with (for our customers) were around simple automation. This was because the basic Microsoft tools hadn't reached maturity, and what we were providing from the outset were solutions to make the Microsoft t [...]

Just for the health of it – 1E Wellness Week 2014

In June, across all three global 1E offices, we celebrated 'Wellness Week', inviting all our staff to participate in a week of activities aimed at physical and mental health and well-being. Amidst all our work-related activities, the one key attribute of life that we tend to neglect is our health and well-being.

The life of a 1E Support Tech

The life of a 1E Support Tech

When it comes to Customer Service, Support Engineers are often considered as the “Voice and Face” of an organization, and it is no different at 1E Support. For a company that excels in developing IT efficiency products, the onus rests upon us to match that with quality service. Quite understandably, each day is very different to the next, and of course, some days stand out more than others. The life of a 1E Support Tech is predictably challenging. It’s not just knowing about our product [...]

Introducing our Shopping Product Owner

Introducing our Shopping Product Owner

Hi! At this junction, when I’ve just gotten started with 1E, I think it’s a good opportunity to introduce myself. I am Abhishek, the new Product Owner for Shopping, our corporate app store product, and it’s been little over a month since I joined 1E. Before joining 1E, I gave a long and hard thought to which type of organization I should  consider for my next assignment. Learning more about the 1E product line certainly helped me streamline my thoughts. I noticed that each of 1E’s [...]
