Case Study Icon

Coming from a system that crashed on a regular basis, to not experiencing a single crash in over seven years is a phenomenal change. Node4 designed a bespoke environment which has required minimal maintenance and support. It just works.

Case Study Icon

Node4 built and delivered a product as complex as RetirePort in 6 months – a real achievement. I have worked on a couple of such projects and none have gone as smoothly as this. Node4 have been nothing short of superb in terms of professionalism, commitment, tenacity and delivery; it has been (and will continue to be I’m sure) an absolute pleasure to work with Node4. It feels like a partnership rather than a client/supplier relationship. Together with Node4, we have delivered a first class product which is already proving a success. Node4’s translation of our vision to a finished product is in no doubt a market winner!

ACHIEVING BUSINESS AGILITY

 

With Open Source Software.

 

 

In today’s fast-paced, data-driven economy, a lack of agility is a nail in your business’s coffin.With consumers and users demanding immediate results, your infrastructure has to be agile, secure, and able to scale according to that demand.

Open Source software allows “business agility”; a quality increasingly valued above all others in the fast-changing marketplace. The ability to create new applications quickly, reliably, and economically is drawing businesses big and small to Open Source, and encourage them to use it for ever-larger projects.
