Professionalism in I.T.

DTEK's core company values are built upon a foundation of I.T. professionalism. We support professional I.T. certification through CIPS, Canada's association of I.T. professionals since 1958. To become certified by CIPS, in addition to following a rigorous application process, an I.T. practitioner must abide by the CIPS code of ethics, and must uphold responsibility to the I.T. profession. The ITCP certification from CIPS has been reviewed and accredited by the International Federation for Information Processing as meeting the internationally recognized, vendor-neutral, IP3P standard.

DTEK's company policy is to encourage, motivate and support our consultants, to acquire and maintain professional I.T. certification through CIPS. Thereby providing you, our client, with the highest level of trust and integrity for our services.

Our business model

DTEK’s business model is for consultants to alternate between providing consulting services to clients, and keeping their skills current by completing professional development activities such as training courses, projects, research and development. Our consultants typically work with one client at a time, and dedicate all of their effort, to only that client.

When completing professional development activities, in addition to independent study, courses and training, our consultants work on research and development initiatives (see below) to build upon and grow DTEK’s internal I.T. systems, experimenting with and exploring the use of software engineering and design principles, for practical business uses.

Research and development initiatives

Recent research and development initiatives include AzureDev and the Online Store.

The AzureDev project, was created to explore the Azure cloud hosting platform, which resulted in the website you are currently seeing. This website serves as a pilot project to demonstrate the feasibility of migrating dotnet web-based applications currently hosted on premises with IIS in Windows Server, and reprogramming them to run serverless in the cloud. It also serves as the company's corporate website; and as a reference application for Azure development using C#.NET.

DTEK Online Store

DTEK Online Store was research and development initiative to create a recreational shopping experience website, called DTEK Online Store. It explores approaches to building an eCommerce website with a React front end, hosted in the Microsoft Azure cloud. DTEK Online Store also serves to explore common well known eCommerce web development patterns, such as the shopping cart, and how to implement them with React’s component state management.

To be clear, no actual commerce is conducted through the DTEK Online Store. No money, or goods and services are traded. It is a simulation of a shopping experience — a recreational activity. It allows the user to "buy" all kinds of things without actually spending any money. It’s based on a controversial belief that the activity of shopping itself, is therapeutic.

The source code for these, and other, internal company projects are not published, in order to protect proprietary company information.
