Solutions include DevOps, Hybrid Cloud and Continuous Integration.
- For the first 5 years the business built their client base through referrals and the existing relationships of the owners - 2 highly experienced business and technology specialists having previously run and sold a successful business, and having written code for HP solutions which is still being used today.
