The company was founded in 1988 by Ian and Alex Bellia, initially offering Unix support services on behalf of vendors such as NCR. Over time, we expanded our services to include communications platforms, transactional middleware, and expertise in the Unix kernel and TCP/IP stack.
With the growth of the Internet in the 2000s, Open Answers played a lead role in the successful technology delivery of some of the UK's most ambitious ecommerce platforms. We established our integration and API practice in 2011, becoming one of the UK's first MuleSoft partners, supporting long-term Enterprise customers to this day. For the last 25 years we have been designing building, and managing platforms in data centres, sovereign cloud, and public cloud, accredited to the latest security standards set by NCSC. From a focussed pool of resource, we provide in-depth engineering experience at all levels of the systems delivery stack - on-premise or in the cloud using Enterprise and Open-Source technologies.
We call what we do Platform Engineering - creating and sustaining the secure foundations that accelerate digital delivery.
