Solutions and help seem to still be the domain of large corporates leaving SME’s very exposed and at the mercy and often less than knowledgeable offerings.
I have a career spanning 35 years in technology which includes projects in organisations such as Northgate, MDIS, Dowty Aerospace, Messier Services, Bank of Ireland, Ibstock Brick, PHS Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, Royal British Legion and The British Library.
Starting initially as an assembler programmer, I then worked through to consultancy and project management and then general management, before forming ProTech Computers Systems in 1995. I sold ProTech in 2019 and have now formed the D-Tech Group of companies which is currently in pre funding raising planning.
From a very early age I had a keen interest in computing and in particular programming. Starting with a ZX81, working my way through night school while 15/16 then obtaining a trainee programming position after leaving education.
Security is a major concern and one that is at the heart of my new venture D-Tech. Solutions and help seem to still be the domain of large corporates leaving SMEs very exposed and at the mercy of often less than knowledgeable offerings.
