So what should we expect in 2019?
Even if you aren’t in an industry where you need the latest and greatest technology right away, it’s important for business owners to be aware of growing trends in technology, because at some point, we all have to adapt to what’s popular. In this blog series, we’ll cover some new tech trends to watch in 2019.
You’re probably familiar with “the cloud.” Today the cloud hosts an enormous amount of data on a global scale. As the physical distance between the user and the cloud increases, transmission times increase. If the user has a slower or older device, that can slow down processing speeds even more. This is where “edge computing” comes in to save the day, and it’s our hot tech trend to watch in 2019.
Instead of relying solely on the cloud, edge computing allows some apps and data to be processed on smaller “edge of the cloud” servers, closer in proximity to the user. Carriers and service providers are taking pressure off their centralized data centers in the cloud through these edge servers. By moving smaller, localized data centers to the edge of the cloud, closer to consumers, it speeds up data processing and response times. Information, such as local traffic, doesn’t have to be processed outside of its region, making distribution faster and more efficient to local users.

Take a few minutes and write down your biggest goals for the New Year. Then break them down into smaller goals. And then even smaller goals, all the way down to tiny bit-sized goals you can easily accomplish. Accountability is crucial, so make sure you write down when you want to finish each goal (quarter, month, or day). The more specific you can get, the better. Jotting down big, yearly goals can make them feel out of reach. By dissecting them into smaller achievable goals, you can build your confidence with each check mark!
Tomorrow’s To-Do list, Today
A great habit to get into is writing down what you need to do tomorrow before you leave work today. It can help alleviate some of the stress you might bring home from work and help you get laser focused the next morning. Then, when you get into the office you can run through your list again and jump right back in where you left off.
Learn to Say No
Some of us get into the habit of saying yes to everything, even if we really don’t have time. This year, work on saying no (politely!) instead of taking on more work than you can handle. You don’t always have to say no, but sometimes you need to. It’ll allow you to have more time to produce the best quality work on the projects you already have. It may seem uncomfortable at first, but it gets easier!
Some mornings you just know it’s not going to be your day. It can be challenging to come into work, focus, and get things done. Whether you’re running late, in a cranky mood, or just out of whack, take a moment and treat yourself. It can be as simple as listening to your favorite song, stopping for an overpriced latte, or getting an extra doughnut from the kitchen. You’ll be surprised at how taking a moment for you can turn around your day.
Have Professional Courage
When we think about courage, we don’t often equate it to work. This year challenge yourself to have more professional courage. What does that mean? Take yourself out of your comfort zone and try to grow in other areas of your professional life. This could mean taking on a new project you aren’t entirely comfortable with, or it could be attending networking events and meeting new people. That thing that makes your stomach a bit queasy and your hands sweaty, try it! Challenging yourself professionally is the only way to grow and 2019 is your year to do it.
The beginning of 2018 brought big changes for our company as we began to move our data center in downtown Seattle. Over the course of a few months we disassembled the existing data center – removing racks and cords and replacing hardware. We set up Ethernet cables, power cords, and installed new switches. It was quite the process. We now have a new data center, still in downtown Seattle, which we manage remotely from our headquarters in Bellevue.
Dream Big Contest
We love to hear from our customers and see how their businesses are developing and growing. This summer we held a contest to see which of our customers had the best designed website. After all the submissions were in, we took an office-wide vote and chose three winners. The winners were gifted an iPad, Alexa Echo Dot, and Beats by Dre headphones.
PSPinc 31st Anniversary
The end of summer brought another milestone for our company. Last year we celebrated our 30th Anniversary with a huge company dinner and video created by RB Content labs. Saturday July 7th we made it to our 31st Anniversary. We’re proud to continue serving our customers and representing the great state of Washington.
PSP Children’s Foundation Golf Tournament
Each year the PSP Children’s Foundation hosts a charity golf tournament at the beautiful Aldarra Golf Club. This year we had a fantastic turnout on August 13th, raising thousands of dollars to put into five scholarships for business students at the University of Washington. We are truly honored to host such an amazing event with lots of great partners, participants, and the support of the local community.
