Development

For our Corporate customers we have developed transactional websites and integration platforms based on open technologies. Open Answers development services are underpinned by our extensive experience working with leading vendors such as Sun Microsystems and IBM. Over the years Open Answers has undertaken significant engineering projects for these organisations, most notably network engineering and UNIX kernel and bug fixing. This has included work with several leading network vendors to port products across to the latest operating system versions.

Open Answers People This experience enables Open Answers to specialise in system engineering across Unix and Linux environments. Development is a unique skill and it requires an exceptional mind to develop excellent code. Over the years, Open Answers has achieved a reputation for developing sleek, efficient, robust, highly performing code that exactly meets customer specifications.

Open Answers is proud to have provided many end-to-end solutions to problems many others have deemed insoluble. Whilst the emergence of standards such as XML has made interoperability easier, there is still a need to provide sleek, efficient solutions that integrate legacy solutions to meet specific business objectives.

Recent customer projects have also included the development of custom web server plug-ins for authentication and visitor tracking, and bespoke secure messaging systems.

Open Answers developers can also work full time on a consultancy basis for customers when required – either working independently to meet a specific requirement or augmenting the existing development team.


Specialist areas include:

  • Content Management Systems
  • Engineering support for Unix vendors
  • Tailored systems development
  • Code design, implementation and testing
  • Application and device driver porting
