Old school, not old fashioned

We’re a consulting team based in Adelaide, Australia. Specialising in cloud and telecommunication services. Get in touch with us for a commercially grounded approach.

Lets Talk

Manifesto

When building a consulting firm, the first place to start is the values. Once this is sorted then you can think about the staff, partners and customers you want to work with.

Founded in the internet

Baked into jtwo is the early days of the commercial Internet. We think about corporate IT from this direction.

Commercially Minded

Our services are based on the simple idea that ICT is about enabling great things for the lowest cost and risk.

Integrate, don’t abandon

The cloud represents another tool in the box. It’s important to respect and leverage what we already have, not abandon what works.

It’s OK to have fun

We want staff and customers to enjoy the process. It might get hard but why not have fun on the way?

Hard is good

We think complexity isn’t a vice. It’s when the problem or the solution is hard that we see the biggest innovations.

Creative thinking

We expect creative thinking from our staff and our customers. No plausible solution is off the table.

Corporate grade problems

We want to bring new thinking to corporate grade problems.

Build and manage

We are prepared to stand by anything we build and deploy not just deploy and walk away.

What we do

We offer planning, transition and management services for the adoption of digital technologies

Telecommunications Consulting

Making sense of telecommunications in Australia is a challenge. Broad competition in corporate communications, the NBN and a movement towards workforce mobility make networking more important than ever.

Cloud & Infrastructure Consulting

The delivery of applications to the business requires infrastructure. The cloud offers a way of simplifying infrastructure, reducing costs and improving reliability and effectiveness. We bring a lot of experience with delivery of cloud infrastructure.

Cloud Build

A sustainable, cost-effective implementation of cloud technologies requires a solid foundation. There are several fixed price engagements that combine to provide this foundation. It’s our job to make the cloud easy to build and procure so you can focus on getting on with running your business and focussing on your customers.

Cloud Managed Service

We are good at the cloud, so you don’t have to be. We keep the cloud running so you can focus on your business and your applications. We offer managed services on a flexible month-by-month basis. We drive the cloud provider, while they keep the lights on, therefore we believe it shouldn’t cost as much as tradition managed services. Public cloud services are complex, these services change regularly as cloud providers rapidly innovate and evolve their offerings. Our cloud managed services allows you to focus on your applications and services with peace of mind that the public cloud services underpinning them are properly managed.
