How we will help with your next IT project
Fresh Design or Redevelopment
New (greenfield) development or restructuring of legacy (brownfield) apps. A thorough review process, patient planning, constant leadership and solid implementation achieve your business goals.
Modern, Open Tooling
We use a modern build process and open source tooling. The product, documentation, and the process pieces all belong to you. No vendor lockin. We do our best to deliver reliability and longevity.
The devices you support and the infrastructure you choose. We'll deliver on-premise functionality or full cloud deployment. Scale and security are foremost in our minds. Reliable technologies and services are the key.
Solid Finish, Tight Package
Performance matters and we monitor it all the way. QA testing and Benchmarks underpin the build process. Instrumenting for telemetry and analytics help us to keep applications healthy and robust.
How We Do IT
We use quality tools, practice thoughtful assembly, and hire creative people
Following the Guidelines
compass and map
At Dataframes, we enjoy the pace of change. Innovation happens, generally for the best. Consistent, robust results with a long shelf life are what we're after. We like to align with industry best practices and deliver on that foundation.
Translation: momentum has shifted to produce for the cloud, and the client is the browser. Today's website is tomorrow's mobile app. We use technologies that fit hand-in-glove with this framework, protecting you from premature obsolescence.
Further translation: The Tools tab provides detail, but the big picture is simpler to explain. The project artifacts we turn over to your company must be maintainable, and not just by us. Following industry standards, using tooling that is widely accessible and popular, we deliver quality results.
But this is still a conversation. We believe in learning and sharing knowledge with clients. Decision matrices are helpful to make the process transparent. Display Decision Matrix

The lingua franca of the web, and of hybrid apps for mobile. The creative space we function in, and build with.
...and the old becomes new again. Microsoft readies a bevy of technologies that are open.
Code can be complicated, but so can graphics, or data driven content. We manage it all with open-source tools.

Listen To Our Clients
When they are proud of the work, we are satisfied
Bill and Ian piloted my first website design to mesh perfectly with my business needs. They were super responsive to my needs and the needs of my clients on all fronts, especially the transition to the new site. The website makes it so easy for potential new clients to find what they're looking for and communicate with me. I have more than tripled my new clients since launching the newly designed site. In addition, the team went above and beyond and produced a comprehensive marketing site for my book and second business. I was impressed by the level of collaboration and communication at every step of the way. And they were always on time or ahead of schedule! I appreciated their constant patience in explaining various steps to me. I would have been lost without them!
Bill revamped a time-consuming paper process that involved multiple levels of personnel and transformed it into an efficient set of web applications. He coordinated the development process with key stakeholders keeping us informed every step of the way. His translation of business requirements into a working system was smooth and accurate. Training and documentation were provided and the group readily adopted the new process. This new system has saved us huge amounts of time and our office administrator is completely freed of responsibility now for this process.
Bill has been an IT consultant to Venture Investors for over 15 years. During this time he has provided strategic guidance and oversight to the firm’s IT strategy while serving as our network administrator. During this period of time he has managed a variety of systems and developed specialized solutions to meet our business needs. Most recently, Bill helped our firm with a major upgrade by successfully transitioning all our IT systems to the cloud. Bill has been a valued member of our team and enabled us to have enterprise class solutions and support on a small business budget.
Originally we contacted Bill to help us with security issues with our services from an online provider. As a result we made a smooth transition to a more secure and reliable new provider, and saved money while gaining capacity. Months later our web hosting resources were hacked and Bill tracked down and identified the source of the hack. On his recommendations we moved to more secure web hosting, again, a smooth transition. Most recently we completed a redevelopment of our website and I couldn't be happier with the results.
My company’s experience with Dataframes has been extremely positive. We required expertise to build from the ground up, including computer hardware, software and IT systems, data storage and backup, access to multiple-user cloud-based systems, security, and robust document version controls for our business. In addition, we required design and establishment of our company website and timely updating of this site as we evolved. Bill has been responsive, both in his communications with me, and in his consistent timely completion of all projects requested. Our experience provides us confidence that he will respond to any situation, and competently resolve issues in an expedited manner. He has demonstrated that he clearly understands our business needs as a customer, and provides a level of service I would qualify as prompt, reliable and highly professional.
