Not so long ago most corporate IT solutions looked like a scaled version of each other, with dominance by vendors such as IBM, Microsoft, Lotus, Compaq and HP.

Today each layer in the technology stack has multiple options from multiple vendors.  We can help you to piece this complicated  jigsaw together.

Why you might need our help

The influence and speed of change demonstrated by DevOps and Continuous Delivery in the consumer market has set a new level of expectation. What used to take months or years is now expected to take days or weeks.

The innovation explosion, the importance of speed to market for competitive advantage, the drive for Business Intelligence to offer strategic insight plus logistics and cost optimisations means traditional IT must evolve.

If the IT function can’t supply then staff consider shadow IT risking legal exposure (Data Protection Act/GDPR).

In worst cases you lose both business and IT staff to competitors who supply better tools for the job.

The Cyber-Security threat is growing every day.
