WiRD Associates was founded in 1996 as a niche IT consulting company, by team from the Denel Informatics R&D team.
Remaining a niche player, over the 20+ years WiRD has participated in the maturation of IT, and the entire Internet Age.
This was an exciting time. In 1996 a the Internet was an infant with the first Mozaic Browser shipping. (we have a boxed copy), a Terabyte of storage was enterprise stuff, Windows was just introducing workgroup networks, Java JDK 1.0 shipped, and business was excited to be able to work on data that was less than a month old.
It seemed a good time for a skilled team to start an Information Management practice to help business exploit the opportunities emerging.
Today we remain passionate professionals with the resulting experience of those many projects, products and changes. It has been, and continues to be a rewarding journey.
