IT Security

IT Security or Cyber Security is big business. It is one of the most imports things for a company to have in place.
It is the protection of a company’s information systems from theft or damage, this can be either to the hardware or software as well as the information held on them.

Software Testing

The 21st century organization needs to bring testing upfront in the delivery life-cycle to provide rapid feedback, build a safety net of automated tests to allow rapid changes in application and involve users early to build the right value tests. To do these they need to invest in multi-skilled testing professionals trained in cutting edge test methodologies.

Testers alone can’t bring efficiency in testing. For that there needs to be an increase in collaboration between testers and business experts, testers and developers and testers and end users

DBA/Developer

Every organisation that manages data using a database management system (DBMS) requires a database administration group to oversee and assure the proper usage and deployment of the company’s data and databases.

With the growing mountain of data and the need to organize that data effectively to deliver value to the business, most modern organisations use a DBMS for their most critical data. So, the need for database administrators (DBAs) is greater today than ever before

Web Design

The first impression left by a website is often the only one you have to catch potential customers. Once on a site, web readers will take only a few seconds to decide if it is worth their time to click through.

Poor design, a confusing interface and slow load times influence people to click the back button. When readers bounce, not only do you lose a customer, your search engine standing can be affected as well.
