IBM Service Offering

Our service offering around the IBM products is based upon deep product knowledge accumulated over many years of successful deliver of consulting services and training course material.

IBM and Java Focus since 1997

The focus of our IBM services business has been 100% on the Java-related product range from IBM, as Java has evolved into JEE since 1997, when we became an official IBM Business Partner.

We began with Component Broker, the predecessor of WebSphere Application Server. We have delivered WebSphere Application Server consulting services since WebSphere V0.9. We have worked with WebSphere Portal Server since its inception, and today we provide Portal-based consulting and training.
