DataSurge: When Performance Matters

Bloomsbury Publishing

Bloomsbury Publishing are internationally renowned as the people who brought Harry Potter to the world. Less commonly known is the seriousness with which they are applying the latest technology to book publishing.

We were asked to review their corporate intranet application, to identify problems and to detail solutions.

Stephanie Duncan, the project manager responsible sums up our contribution:

"We laid down the gauntlet to come and break our intranet/extranet -- and they did. What we weren't expecting was both the breadth and depth of their report.

Not only did they highlight existing weaknesses, but they analysed the entire codebase from the database design through to the ASP pages, looking for problems that may arise when the system is put under load. The remedial action specified was equally impressive and included speeding up the site considerably.

Bloomsbury are delighted with the service we received, and we look forward to working together again."
