How to get started

We are obsessive about delivering value. After our initial call/meeting our first priority will be to establish a good fit. To do this we have to ask all the right questions about your business and your team. This usually involves a day of meetings with your key people after which we present a short report with a proposal for advisory services.

"Lakeside is ran by people incredibly knowledgeable about the business, HR, operational, architectural and infrastructural sides of IT. We’ve reached out to them when our company was going through a rough patch due to an abrupt growth in all areas, and a lot of scalability issues throughout. They helped us to build our QA and TechOps department in just a few weeks. They’ve helped us with building a streamlined DevOps methodology throughout the organization. Last and more importantly, they assessed our systems and operations and guided us throughout the migration of our on-premise system to the cloud. You don’t need to repeat other people’s mistakes – you just need a good IT partner like Lakeside to tell you how to avoid them." - Clyde Farrugia, CTO
