Goodbye Windows 7, IR35 woes, Six Nations, and IT at Davos
In this week’s episode of the Computer Weekly Downtime Upload podcast, Caroline Donnelly and Brian McKenna are joined by Cliff Saran to discuss the end of support of Windows 7, IR35 in the private sector, Will Carling and AWS in respect of the Guinness Six Nations Rugby Union tournament, and IT at Davos. Cliff talked about what the end of support for Windows 7 means for CIOs. In regards to IR35, Caroline explained that in April 2020, private sector organisations will assume responsibility for determining how the contractors they engage with should be taxed. Caroline also discussed AWS’s data analytics activities in relation to its sponsorship of the Rugby Union Six Nations tournament. Cliff talks about the role the technology sector could play in addressing the climate change emergency that was the main theme of Davos this year.
