Our strategic design and consultancy work is focused
on helping large organisations obtain the maximum from their network designs.
Our senior technical
consultants have a wealth of experience of designing entire network systems, from low
level local and wide area networks, including the implementation of the desktop
environment and the installation of client-server applications.
Previous jobs have included
strategy advice, design, QA, and trouble shooting work for government and large commercial
organisations. The deliverables for this type of work will include research into technical
options, preparation and delivery of study reports, presentation of strategies to senior
management and so on.

|From the outset Daemon have
been dedicated to achieving the highest possible level of quality and expertise within
their area of the industry. The senior consultants are very experienced staff, each with
more than 15 years in the industry behind them. In most cases most of this time will have
been spent working with the 'prime movers' in the industry, (such as Intel, IBM, HP, Sun
and Compaq, and so on).
special interest is in respect of LAN and WAN design, network operating systems,
client-server applications, and the use of Internet and Intranet technologies. They share
the increasingly common industry belief that network and system design is evolving rapidly
towards the Intranet standard where 'thin client, three tier' technology will come to
dominate. It is in support of that end that Daemon are tuning their skills.
Daemon's complementary skills enables its
consultants to have an in-depth knowledge of products and systems in the market based on
development input as well as general industry knowledge. This helps ensure that our
consultants have their feet firmly rooted on the ground and are not misled by hype and
over enthusiasm which is so common within the industry.

|Daemon is not
a recruitment agency, however, we do act as a sub-contractor resource centre for several
of our clients.
Most computing recruitment
agencies act as agencies for their stock of personnel and offer very little qualification
of staff skill. They also typically charge a significant fee for this service. We have a
different approach: since we are active in the IT industry we have built up a large
network of contacts, both on the customer and contractor sides. We can perform a useful
service introducing one to the other and administering the contract during its duration.
Because we do not have the advertising costs associated with a recruitment personnel
agency, our charges can be very small above the fee that is paid to the contractor.
In addition to this 'introduction service', we
validate any contractor that we refer to one of our clients to ensure that the credentials
they espouse is correct. We apply the same yardsticks to their skillsets as we do for our
indigenous staff. We also support any contractor we place with a client with a 'technical
backup' capability. This usually takes the form of providing technical backup to resolve
problems they encounter, using our combined in-house skillset and/or reference to the
existing support relationships we have with the big manufacturers, (we have support
agreements in place with Intel, Microsoft, Novell, Sun and most recently, Corel).
