For businesses choosing to move their current in-house services or who may be looking for a more robust platform compared to their traditional hosted services, we find that Cloud services provide an alternate option for all. Moving to The Cloud has been well marketed and documented - there is a lot of opinions on the use of Cloud services but we do feel that finding the right Cloud Host Provider, coupled with comparing ongoing costs to one off costs, are two of the main areas that should be reviewed before any decisions are made for your business.
There is no right or wrong answer to using Cloud services - it is more about whether or not "it's the right fit for your business”. If it does fit then we are partnered with many of the leading Cloud providers to provide and manage your services in The Cloud.
There are a lot of factors to consider before deciding on who is the best choice of supplier to help develop and design your website. You may well think it would be as simple as looking at some examples and saying you are happy to proceed, unfortunately if the process was this simple there would not be so many companies who have become frustrated and confused by the whole web development process.
Fortunately here at DATA we have listened carefully to new customer's previous experiences. We not only offer a competitive package, but we also offer peace of mind to customers so that they know we will do everything in our power to make sure that their experience with us is pleasant, stress-free and that should any issues occur they will be dealt with in a timely and efficient manner! We want your experience of Web Development to be good (enjoyable) for everyone to be involved and as part of a team, that's what we strive to achieve.
