The combined range of experience within Tower is perhaps the most diverse and extensive of any e-business and web development firm in Europe. Senior personnel have operated previously within the film and entertainment, marketing and design, programming and network security and radio and television sectors. These industry sectors are the key ones that form the nucleus of the converged new media environment and our ability to tap into these resources as part of every project is fundamental to our unique capability.
The Tower web development platform is the result of over six years of development and refinement. As a result, Tower can rapidly deploy custom built web applications combining the robust design and security of a proven architecture with the flexibility that comes from in house development. As all of our technology is based around open standards, you retain maximum flexibility.
Our customers run our solutions on the operating system of their choice. Tower recommend either Microsoft Windows 2003 Server or any Unix or Linux based platform. Some customers opt for the speed and ease of use of the MySQL DBMS, others prefer the scalability of Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server. Whatever your IT strategy, we will work to provide the solution that works best for you.
To reach the largest possible audience, we develop standards compliant content based on XHTML and CSS. We test our systems on Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox/Mozilla, Opera and Safari.
″The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect
-- Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web″
With the maturing of the web as a platform, it is now feasible to provide content that can be accessed by a much broader community. By using a standards compliant approach you retain the ability to present your website effectively without compromising access to blind or visually impaired users.
