Solent Design




quality internet solutions


In the early stages of implementing Internet technology, a business can keep its web site as an island, separate from the rest of the organisation. As the business evolves, it will need to integrate the web site with other areas of the business.

Solent Design is an IBM business partner that has worked with various organisations on the integration of their Internet site with their business units. We are able to provide independent consultancy to our customers and the reassurance provided by an IBM business partner that has worked for leading companies in a number of sectors. Our flexible approach means that we have been able to assist with projects ranging from helping small organisations to assisting international businesses with their integration requirements.

In addition, we have experience of linking applications within a business, even if they are based on different platforms using WebSphere MQ. With its assured delivery and support for over 35 platforms, IBM's WebSphere MQ has emerged as the market leader in the messaging software market. Our services include the following:

  • MQ Implementation Review,
  • Application design, development and deployment,
  • Infrastructure support,
  • System Architectural design,
  • quick-start implementation covering installation, configuration and implementation of standards,
  • MQ security review,
  • MQSI consultancy from MQSI certified consultants and
  • on-site bespoke training.

For businesses requiring applications to be custom built to meet specific business needs, our programmers and designers can bring their expertise to ensure that we build a robust solution that provides good value and is delivered on time.
