(Berlin, 02.03.2020) Unfortunately, the ITB Berlin has been cancelled this year as a protective measure against a spread of the corona virus. According to current information, the world's largest tourism trade fair will thus be completely cancelled for this year. It's a pity, because otherwise we would have opened a branch at the ITB Berlin, as we have done for the last 16 years. But the following is now obsolete:
Ever since the very first minute of our company history we are busily working for the hospitality sector and therefore we are quite well accustomed in the area of the holiday topic. Through the presentations of former partner countries of the ITB we had the pleasure to see the whole world promenading past us. Currently no country is linked to the ITB, so we will take the chance to follow another trend: the discovery of local recreation areas.
(Berlin, 14.02.2020) The IT industry is popular for its technical terms alone... Ever heard of HCI, a Hyperconverged Infrastructure? If you remember any of your Latin-lessons, you can guess that in this construct something comes a bit closer to the other. And that is exactly it! Things approach each other until in the end they are one. Whereas in the past virtualization, network and storage were managed on separate hardware, today this is done with a single modular hardware. This means that the space needed by these applications can be flexibly allocated and thus becomes faster. With the usage of SSDs instead of conventional hard disks, which DaPhi uses ever since the beginning of the year, you could as well call this hyperfast. So what's new with DaPhi? Simply put, we have modernized our data center and are now simply faster!
(Berlin, 02.12.2019) We as DaPhi, but also we as society are constantly working on shortening waiting times. Be it through faster Wi-Fi, faster processors, faster memory, more efficient service or even faster overcoming of distances through faster traffic routes and vehicles. All this makes sense and gives us time elsewhere, saving our customers time in our case. In this context, Advent, which is about waiting, seems to be out of place.
(Berlin, 01.11.2019) Have you ever heard of IT stamina? We have. Just place a notebook in front of your chest and walk around a building, mostly hotels with several floors, whose WI-FI coverage you want to control and optimize. Since we have been using the Ekahau Sidekick, however, no great muscular effort is required. The Sidekick is a small device that you hang around like a messenger bag. In this manner the WI-FI coverage of a building or a floor can be checked quite comfortably. At the same time, you can view and optimize the results via the software on a lightweight tablet.
(Berlin, 14.10.2019) DaPhi was taking work for clients from the hotel industry right from the start. Most of them are located in Germany, but we also take care of some customers abroad, for whom we send our employees across the EU. From time to time we also travel to England, where in London we have a MEININGER branch and two hostels of the Clink Group in our portfolio. To no surprise, alone because of this Brexit concerns us. Even if this might only be a small part of our business, and therefore a small business risk, we do not want to lose our customers there. Actually, we even would like to win new British customers. But what will the future look like? Politics do not permit a clear assessment. Will it soon be cheaper for companies in England to hire domestic service providers? Will there be new customs regulations, new rules, a new currency?
