Our expertise spanning both IT infrastructure and software programming allows us to be in a unique position to offer integration services to our customers. Integration services typically require expertise in both the domains, and many of our competitiors, offering one type of service, are not in a position to handle the complexities of such an undertaking.
One example of integration services is that of server migration and consolidation. Now adays many firms are moving from multiple physical server environment to a more consoidated virtual environment in a public or private cloud. Such type of migration can only be handled by a company like Data Dynamics that not only knows how to work with both physical and virtual envionments, but also knows how to migrate websites and software applications from one envionment to the other and making making right coding changes to them. Client for such a service can rely on Data Dynamics as a one stop shop as opposed to going to two different vendors and trying to coordinate the project between the two.
When employing our services, our clients benefit from the wealth of our experience in managing complex multi-million dollar programs and projects. We bring over 10 years of experience in managing both IT infrastructure and development projects utilizing various technologies including C++, .NET, and Java.
