On foot of the successful launch of CITs M.Sc. and B.Sc. programmes in Cloud Computing, last Autumn, CIT has now lauched a new distance learning Cloud Computing Graduate Conversion Programme.

Delivered online using Adobe Connect and starting in June 2012, both programmes are supported by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) and Department of Education and Skills which means the tuition fees normally associated with such programmes are waived.  CIT also notes that “we have been informed that successful applicants who currently receive either the Jobseeker’s Allowance or Jobseeker’s Benefit will continue to receive this payment.”

Micromail is celebrating a successful quarter-century!

As we are feeling misty eyed (for a moment or two), we would like to share some of that history with you. We were set up in 1987 to supply software to computer users, along with manuals and books on every aspect of computing & IT. Our first website and an online shop were added in 1995. Our areas of expertise grew over the years in response to technological developments and to customer demand, and we developed the range of competencies which has made us one of Ireland’s leading suppliers of software licensing and services.

Our first 25 years in business have been full of interest and incident. We witnessed the rise, fall & rise again of Apple & the late Steve Jobs. When we entered the industry Lotus 1-2-3 and WordPerfect reigned supreme, only to be displaced within a few years by Microsoft Excel & Microsoft Word. In the nineties we sold thousands of books about the amazing growth of the internet, and in 2000 and 2001 we experienced the dotcom boom & bust: among the casualties were several of our own customers.

We have partnered with Microsoft since the early years of its rise to dominance, and forged strong and enduring relationships with other major software vendors like Adobe, Symantec & Embarcadero. We have enjoyed playing an active part in the challenging, demanding and ever-changing IT scene. We have no doubt that each successive wave of innovation will create even more astonishing new technologies in the future.

We look forward to the next quarter-century, ready for the challenges ahead, and hope that you, our loyal customers, will continue the journey with us.

Happy Birthday to Us!
