DMW is an ambitious organisation that measures success by the quality of the relationships we establish with our clients. Their success is, and always will be, our success.

DMW is a strategic IT partner, working internationally for ambitious public and private sector organisations.

Based in the UK, we are a respected, independent IT consulting firm with a 30 year track record delivering complex, business-critical IT transformation projects that create competitive advantage.

We are a credible and highly effective alternative to the dominant players, providing an intelligent and collaborative approach focused on people.

Our approach

Back to top

Looking back at the last 30 years of delivering business IT transformation, we realised something startlingly simple.

Success or failure is rarely down to the complexity of the technology or the reality of the business situation. It is almost always down to the people involved.

When it comes to people, it’s their understanding, experiences, expectations, motivations and behaviours that make all the difference between success and failure.

So this is where DMW puts in the effort.

Our history

Back to top
Labshouse-2

In 1989, DMW was founded by five individuals who believed there was a better way to deliver value to clients, by creating a different kind of IT consultancy. These consultants wanted the opportunity to forge closer relationships with their clients working with the real decision makers in client organisations.

Since then firm has grown conservatively, focusing on delivering pragmatic advice, guidance and leadership. DMW recruits and retains the very best individuals with high profile consulting backgrounds. It prides itself on its core values: intellect, integrity, pragmatism, tenacity and, most of all, a personal touch.

Consistently demonstrating these values has established the firm as a trusted advisor to a range of high profile clients across all industry sectors.

DMW is driven by the desire to do exciting work for ambitious clients – and is growing at pace.

Why should people choose us

Back to top

Our people

DMW is all about people. Our firm is recognised by clients as the place where smart, ambitious people, who value their integrity and independence want to work. Our selection process is tough: it’s designed to identify people from top firms who have the deep technical knowledge, proven programme management capabilities and, most importantly, the unique blend of people skills that differentiates a DMW consultant from the rest.

Our board is made up of respected individuals who remain deeply involved in consulting projects, leading by example and helping others to succeed.

Our scale

We feel better equipped to meet clients’ needs by being a highly focused, expert firm. Our consultants, working in small groups, are embedded alongside in-house teams where they are able to understand the issues and challenges and provide the deep technical skills and  leadership necessary to deliver results.

DMW collaborates in a shared enterprise with clients who retain control at all times. It’s an alternative approach to many larger firms, but for many businesses faced with large-scale, complex transformation projects, it’s the smarter way to deliver results.

Our independence

DMW assure the integrity and impartiality of our advice by maintaining balanced relationships across a number of leading vendors, including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform & Microsoft Azure. This helps us ensure the expertise of our staff in specific domains and lets us make the best, most informed recommendations for our clients. We never take referral or commission fees from solution vendors nor do we enter into exclusivity agreements.

Our track record

Over the past 30 years, we have delivered IT transformation projects that have created competitive advantage for many of the world’s leading companies, including FTSE 100 firms. As we choose to work behind the scenes with our clients, our contribution is rarely publicised. But we’re happy this way, because the people that matter know the value that we add. As a result, 80% of our work comes by way of referral.

Our role is to maximise opportunity and to minimise risk. Our consultants move seamlessly from strategy through to operations to deliver complex business IT transformation projects. DMW people are trusted to deliver when it really is critical.

Our endorsements

Our clients are happy to endorse us. They are all willing to provide personal references to prospective new clients, explaining in greater detail how we have worked with them to maximise opportunities and to reduce risk.

Values

Back to top

Intellect

We’re proud to employ the very smartest people in the business. Being well qualified is just the start. We employ people who look below the surface of any challenge and who think deeply about how to deliver success in a specific situation. Beyond the logical business and technical intelligence that every good IT consultant requires, DMW people have a highly developed emotional intelligence that enables them to manage, lead and inspire people at every level.

Integrity

There are many times when we have given clients challenging advice that is at odds with their view of the world and our opportunity for commercial gain. These can be uncomfortable moments but they have forged enduring relationships built upon mutual respect and trust.

DMW assure the integrity and impartiality of our advice by maintaining balanced relationships across a number of leading vendors. This means we can make the best, most informed recommendations for our clients.

A client recently explained that he chooses to work with DMW because he feels we act in his best interests all of the time. That’s always been our objective.

Pragmatism

DMW operates in the real world where there are fuzzy edges to a project scope and legacy issues to contend with. We take time to understand the issues surrounding a project and apply real-world pragmatism to define an effective solution.

Because our consultants are embedded within the client’s team, they have a unique understanding of what will and will not work locally and can develop strategies to address any barriers.

Tenacity

Our consultants are a committed bunch. They take personal pride in driving a project through to a successful conclusion, overcoming any obstacles along the way. We dig deep when things get tough and put in the personal effort to show others what is possible. Tenacity lies at the core of what it means to be part of DMW.

A personal touch

We deliver exceptional value by remembering that every client and every project are different and by matching our expertise to each project to deliver a solution that will exceed expectations.
