360is gets new shoes, jug, and knives!

New 360is Web Site
We don't sell coffee.
"But who is wurs shod, than the shoemakers wyfe, With shops full of newe shapen shoes all hir lyfe?" 
[1546 J. Heywood Dialogue of Proverbs i. xi. E1V] 

It seems everybody has a claim to this one.
There are only wooden knives in the blacksmith's house. Spanish Proverb
At the potter's house water is served in a broken jug.        Afghan Proverb
The lady who sells fans, fans herself with her hands.       Chinese Proverb

It has been almost 2 years since we last updated our web-site, and during that time we've acquired around 20 new clients, new technology expertise, and increased our pool of consulting engineers. We've been so busy delivering for our clients that our own shoes are looking a bit tatty.

The new 360is web site is quite different from the old one, products and vendors are out and successful client engagements are in. As an independent consultancy with our own library of intellectual property, we've always worked with all vendors and technologies to find the right solution for our clients. Or to put it simply, once you've seen 15 different firewall products, or 30 storage systems, or 20 application frameworks, you've pretty much seen them all. On those rare occasions where some element of a project is truly new, we don't expect our clients to pay for us to do the learning. So take it as read, if we aren't already experienced with a product or technology, it won't take us more than a couple of days to be all over it.

Our business is still all about helping clients solve their performance, security, and data centre challenges. We are still one of the few firms offering short-term (up-to 3 month) projects at a fixed price with no risk to the client of cost overrun. We still offer a complete service from helping you frame the problem, through design, technology/vendor selection, implementation, and support. We still enjoy working either with your own technology team, or directly with the business managers.

Over the next 12 months we'll be devoting more time to talking about our intellectual property, experiences, successful projects, and some of the platforms and applications we have developed for our clients. In the mean-time, please excuse any broken links.
