We are flexible in our own delivery methods to respond to changing clients needs. We are a team of consultants who have worked together between 12-20+ years under the direction of David Allan, the director. This flexibility allows us to deliver you cost-effective services and meet clients changing needs. We don’t all work from the same office these days but are connected by cloud-based systems. David also works remotely from Laos part of the year, as being a social enterprise, we support IT education in this developing country.
What does InfoAge mean?
David thought of the name InfoAge, pronounced “info-age” based on the words Information Age, which was often referred to back in the 90’s. The relatively recent field of information technology (compared with other periods) concerns the use of computer-based information systems to convert, store, protect, process, transmit and retrieve information. Technological advances in this field have changed lives around the world and spawned new industries. As we implement such systems for businesses like yours, we thought the name InfoAge was appropriate to represent the Information Age we now live in.
While we’re pondering these things , did you ever wonder where the Internet came from?
Well, the Internet was originally conceived as a distributed, fail-proof network that could connect computers together and be resistant to any point of failure. It was created mainly by United States Department of Defence and its initial software applications were email and computer file transfer. It was with the invention of the World Wide Web in 1989 that the Internet really took off as a global network. 5 years later InfoAge started building websites. Today, the Internet has become the ultimate place to accelerate the flow of relevant information and the fastest growing form of media.
