Summer is fast approaching and for football fans that means one thing… the football season has come to an end! This season has been a remarkable one, with twists and turns on a weekly basis at practically all league levels across the UK. It has been a particularly successful year for three of the clubs that Dynamic Edge proudly sponsor – Peterhead FC, Ross County FC and Cove Rangers FC, with each club winning promotion in their respective leagues!


Recently we welcomed a new team member to Dynamic Edge. Sammy Aberdein joined us as an Admin Assistant in our Aberdeen office, and we thought what better person to test out and review Microsoft Office 365 – one of the most popular products that we support. Here’s what she wrote...


Dynamic Edge continue to back local good causes in the cities where we operate, this time in Aberdeenshire with the beneficiaries being Aberdeenshire’s Rayne North Primary School.

Can you believe that the internet is now 30 years old?! Perhaps the quintessential invention defining our digital generation, the world wide web has profoundly changed the world we live in, and enabled us to take giant strides in convenience, efficiency, entertainment and more…

Here are some of the key milestones in the internet age:


Dynamic Edge has established roots in Aberdeen, starting a ten-year journey by opening its first office in the Granite City. For over a decade we have been providing expert IT support to a large pool of clients in the North East of Scotland, and here we look at a few of our favorite things about Aberdeen:  


Nowadays there are so many tech brands competing for our attention, all promising that their service is the best for you and your business.  These brands want you to migrate as much of your data (coupled with a monthly fee) onto their platform as possible.  But what do the likes of Microsoft, Amazon and others have in common?  The answer is their services are on the cloud, and your business can benefit from migrating to the cloud too.


As of today, Dynamic Edge is 10 years old, and what a journey it’s been! Since forming on the 6th January 2009, Dynamic Edge has been providing expert IT support to clients and leading positive change in technology and efficiency solutions for businesses of all sizes.  In this time, we’ve expanded into four cities, a variety of different technology service offerings and house an expert workforce of 38 people.


As we round off another year and march towards 2019, Dynamic Edge would like to wish all our clients a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.  To celebrate the year 2019 – and our tenth anniversary! – we’ve pulled together some top IT new year’s resolutions to bring in the bells…  


Just one year after opening an office in London, Dynamic Edge are on the move again to enable upscaling south of the border. The current London operation is based out of Leatherhead, Surrey, but after a successful first 12 months, the company is set to relocate to a bigger workspace in the UK capital.


Building on a successful first year since expanding into London, IT specialists Dynamic Edge have teamed-up with RFU Championship side, London Scottish.   


At Dynamic Edge, we make it our business to keep our ‘finger on the pulse’ when it comes to IT developments that could benefit our clients. One of the exciting upcoming innovations on the horizon is in the world of printing, and being delivered by respected IT brand, HP.  

Next up in our 'A day in the life of...' series, we are catching up with our CEO Rob Hamilton. In this interview Rob discusses his favourite things about working at Dynamic Edge, technology preferences and he reveals his nerdiest confession!


Recently we were asked by a potential client to outline the locations where Dynamic Edge are currently providing IT services. We are proud to be based in locations up and down the UK, with four offices located in Aberdeen, Inverness, Dundee and London. This strong network of locations allows our expert team to be on-hand to service clients all over the country, north and south of the border.

Back up your company’s data and plan for the worst…

“What if…” might never happen, but what if it does…?

 In the days of iCloud, Google Drive, Office 365 and other cloud-based back-up facilities you could be forgiven for thinking “it’ll be fine” if you lose your device, data or your company network suffers an outage… Sadly, however this is not always the case.

5 security considerations for your IT team

What to check to keep your business secure…

Cyber security and warfare is a hot topic in today’s world. On a near-daily basis we see news items about data breaches, attacks by hackers, and global system malfunctions. The ramifications on businesses who do not take care of their cyber security are massive – from mega fines for the most serious data breaches, to the potentially crippling revenue losses attributed to core system outages.



This week we took delivery of three new Dynamic Edge branded vehicles as we continue to drive positive change in IT strategy up and down the country.  


Sometimes with technology it’s difficult to know where to start, let alone where you’re heading. For a lot of companies, IT is something that is seen as a necessary evil to “make things work”, but done correctly, your IT can be a business enabler that can support all other functions and supercharge your productivity.  Here are 5 “low hanging fruits” in the world of IT that will supercharge your business…  

Kicking off a new "a day in the life of" series, we're introducing you to Tristan, who is the Regional Manager for Dynamic Edge South. Find out what Tristan's most impactful IT change made was, his nerdiest confession and more...


2018 is an important year for data security. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) signals a worldwide step-change in the way organisations must handle personal data.  Data protection regulation and sanctions have never been higher, and companies must now act to ensure their data security is up to the new standards, or risk hefty financial and reputational penalties.


It’s amazing how much time you can save by using a few simple shortcuts to navigate faster when working on your computer. Reaching for the mouse for basic commands may not seem all that time consuming, but add up all those moments over a week or a month, and you're using a substantial chunk of time.


What percentage of your calls to IT are in relation to a forgotten password? In our experience a lot of the support tickets raised by company employees are simple password reset requests from staff requiring access to their software and systems.


When it comes to IT support, many companies struggle to justify a dedicated “in-house” resource and instead rely on calling on ad-hoc assistance whenever a technical problem arises.


Dynamic Edge is delighted to be part of a new fundraising board of business leaders, with the aim of supporting a charity’s bid to raise £100,000.


Happy new year!  The turkey has been eaten, gifts exchanged, and you’ve watched the fireworks illuminate the sky to the annual rendition of Auld Lang Syne.  As the bells ring, in comes 2018, and as we head back to the office there’s an important milestone approaching fast - the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  


As we head into 2018, Dynamic Edge would like to wish all our customers and partners a prosperous new year, and to celebrate, we’ve pulled together some new year’s resolutions to optimise your IT in 2018.


Dynamic Edge has acquired an award-winning IT firm, expanding the business in the London area.

Nowadays we live in a world where technology is developing rapidly and personal data security is a big concern as we all become more connected. As companies collect and analyze far greater volumes of sensitive data, it is more important than ever to ensure that data is safeguarded and secured.

A year on from the passing of Korrie founder and former Inverness Caley Thistle Director Donnie Fraser, some of the Dynamic Edge team have taken part in the inaugural “Donnie Fraser Memorial Trophy”. Competing in one of 18 teams of four on the day, the team took to the Castle Stuart Golf Links to help raise funds for Highland Hospice, which was a charity very close to the great man’s heart.

cloud data

Increasing business efficiencies with online connectivity

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for several years, you will have heard people you know speak about the “cloud”. Of course, we’re not speaking about big white fluffy things in the sky, but rather a world of online connectivity which, if used well, can help to increase your business efficiencies. Here are 3 ways how you can use the cloud to your advantage, right now:

sbn event

This month marked the first ever Scottish Business Network (SBN) event to be held in Aberdeen. In September 2017, Dynamic Edge and business growth agency Wired Studio hosted an evening event designed to assist North-East companies who are considering expanding into the London market.

In today’s hyper-connected digital world, businesses need to be online and available 24/7. It has become expected that clients and suppliers alike are able to seamlessly stream video calls, connect to cloud services and share important documents in real time. 

In the past “IT issues” such as a slow and unreliable internet connection may have been considered understandable and even joked about as businesses tried to synch up together online. Not anymore.

In May 2018, data protection is changing in a huge way. The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forces companies of all sizes across Europe to take notice, and act on data protection or face heavy penalties. No company is exempt from the new regulations, ignorance is not a valid excuse and action must be taken to ensure compliance. Here are 5 things you need to know about GDPR:

Have you ever sat at home and suddenly that show you’re watching, or music you’re streaming just seems to… cut out?  Chances are your home broadband is the culprit and a simple router reset will get you back up and dancing in no time.   

computer error imageDo you ever think about what would happen to your business should disaster strike? What if you experience a serious data loss, where would you work if the building was damaged by a fire or flood? Whether it’s a natural disaster or a preventable catastrophe, businesses need to be ready for the worst – or pay the price.

cloud computing imageIf you’ve never considered cloud computing then you probably don’t understand the multiple benefits and cost savings associated with cloud solutions. Migrating to the cloud is often viewed by some businesses as a huge effort which doesn’t need to be prioritised – but resisting the change could do more harm than good. Cloud service providers have been around for almost a decade now, helping companies collaborate easier and improve productivity.

Does your website live in a safe place? By this we mean where it is hosted, because choosing a website host can actually have a huge impact on your site’s speed and reliability. Many people don’t realise the importance of website hosting, and how choosing the wrong type of hosting service for your business requirements could spell disaster for your website.

Businesses of all sizes can benefit from a managed IT service – it gives the reassurance that when technology goes wrong, problems can be fixed as efficiently as possible by professional IT technicians. By outsourcing your IT support services, your company can also gain access to the latest state of the art equipment, which you might not be able to invest in yourself.

Just as with the introduction of computers and the internet, cloud computing has changed the way we do business. In a fast-moving and increasingly mobile digital world, IT solutions need to be dynamic, smart and holistic – enter cloud computing.The word “cloud” can easily be exchanged for “on the internet”, and this is the basis behind cloud computing, it’s taking your traditional desktop/locally installed hardware and software, and moving it all online, or “into the cloud”.But what are the benefits of this approach, we hear you ask… In honesty there are far too many to list, but here are a few highlights to get you started!

dynamic edge the very best in cloud computing

In a recent client tender we were asked to provide the details of the locations Dynamic Edge are currently providing IT services. Naturally, like most companies, we have a database with all our clients’ information; so, this was easy enough to provide. However, we thought it would be much more interesting to create something more visual to really show where we are serving and took it upon ourselves to create a heatmap that we could insert along with the list required. Here were the results:


Many clients aren’t sure if an IT managed service is a requirement that their company needs. A common misunderstanding is that it would be more cost effective to get assistance when a problem arises.
