DataSolutions Celebrates 25 Years in Business



2016 marks DataSolutions’ 25th year in business in the Irish market, and we have grown and evolved so much in the last quarter of a century. To put things in perspective, when we started up the World Wide Web had only just been created and Microsoft Office 1.0 was still considered cutting edge software!

To mark the occasion, we held a celebratory dinner on November 24th in Eden on South William Street with our vendors and some of our longest serving partners. There were toasts, singing, and many conversations (and embarrassing stories) from the past, all the while looking toward the future and what is yet to come.

One of the best moments of the night was just before Michael and Francis gave their speeches when they were presented with a video made by the marketing team. Containing photos from the last 25 years and clips from vendors and channel partners wishing them congratulations, it was great to see Michael and Francis’ reactions as they were completely surprised. This was shortly followed up by a performance from Hit Machine, a Celtic drumming group who entertained everyone with their combination of drumming and traditional Irish dance.

DataSolutions have had an amazing 25 years in business, going from a 3 person start-up that operated out of a couple of bedrooms and a living room, to a international distributor with offices and employees in 2 countries and clients in many more. With looking towards the future, it appears that we have no signs of slowing down and the company is looking forward to another 25 years in business!
