D55 - Company Launch at the Forefront of Cloud Computing

The cloud engineering company D55, founded earlier this year by Jonathan Rothwell and Rhys Jacob, has now officially launched in Manchester. D55 is taking a distinctive cloud-first approach to software development shaped by their people, methodology and technology. Located in the Tech Incubator, part of Manchester Technology Centre on Oxford Road, the company has secured a home in one of the cities’ hubs for technology innovation businesses. 

Working with disruptive entrepreneurs, CEOs and CTOs looking for digital transformation, D55 offers complete service for outsourced software development focused on solving technical issues. D55 either delivers the outsourced product directly or partners up with internal teams to enhance their skill set and supplement resources on cloud transformation projects and cloud system architecture.

Being faced with technical debt in legacy systems, the restraints of outdated corporate IT or a lack of experience and skills within the internal team, CEOs or IT directors often find themselves unable to move forward with their company’s digital transformation. In the long run they risk being unable to react to market needs and losing out on important business to competitors due these constraints of their systems. D55 tackles exactly these issues by finding the perfect technology for every project, ensuring a lean and flexible development process combined with agile methodology and adding expert capacity to internal teams. What also sets them apart from their competition is that they truly care about their customer’s ROI and better value for each project in the long run. 

Although D55 is a new company, its founding partners both have well-established track records in the industry working with technology to create new revenue streams and improve business processes. Jonathan and Rhys are excited to leverage their experience and relationships to better serve the digital transformation of their client’s businesses. In fact, the partners view their team’s skill set and expertise as a tremendous value to all of their clients. D55 has employed two new starters in the last couple of months and the team keeps growing steadily. 

Since their official company foundation, D55 have added two large-scale companies to their growing roster of clients. They are also already successfully working with a number of small businesses. 

Director and Co-founder Jonathan says ‘We're really excited to be launching the D55 brand. We have brought together a really strong team and we’re excited at the prospect of new challenges, further growth and working closely with the Manchester tech scene. We've already collaborated with other companies in the Technology Centre which has enabled us to offer our clients even better solutions. If you want to know how we can help you feel free to get in touch.’
