Consulting
Do you regularly hear your developers muttering the phrase "Well it worked on my machine"? Do you actually test the exact software that you are going to put into production? Are your deployments done by a bloke called Dave, and if he chooses to take the day off, nothing can move forwards? If the answer is yes to any of these, then perhaps we can help you to help yourselves.

Specialising in DevOps, we can provide consulting services in Software Change Management, Build, Test and Deploy. With over 10 years experience in a wide variety of DevOps products and technologies, we can help you to get the best out of your development team, whether it be setting up from scratch or making all the pieces work together to produce reliable software.

We also have experience in a range of other software development disciplines, including website development, enterpise architecture, object-oriented design, language development and parser technologies.
