Belfast IT firm celebrates cloud computing success in 57 countries

By John Mulgrew

A Belfast-based IT firm has said it has grown its team in Northern Ireland as its software customer numbers hit six million.

CloudMigrator365, which was founded by Antrim man Darren Mawhinney, offers cloud migration services and software to customers across the globe.

The company has said it has now doubled its sales and tripled its headcount in Belfast over the last year.

It added it has "successfully migrated over six million people to the cloud in 57 countries".

The business helps companies migrate their email and data across to Microsoft Office 365 cloud.

It is expanding its workforce and global partnership network to support this growth, and is "continuing to scale its operations including recruiting for a number of new positions".

Mr Mawhinney said: "The international response to CloudMigrator365 has been phenomenal.

"From our base in Belfast we have so far helped companies in 57 countries to migrate while ensuring the safety and sovereignty of their data.

"We are delighted to be working with world-class organisations including LinkedIn, YMCA and the University of Bristol.

"We are currently recruiting a number of new positions in response to increasing demand from companies such as these, who are keen to invest in a simple, secure and cost-effective cloud migration solution.

"I'm extremely proud this is being developed and delivered in Northern Ireland, where we have been able to build a highly skilled global technology team alongside support from Invest NI, which has made a difference as we continue to significantly scale our operations."

And Steve Harper, Invest NI's executive director of international business, said: "Having benefited from Invest NI employment and trade support, CloudMigrator365 has been able to capitalise on new market opportunities and growing sales.

"Our employment support is enabling the company to scale its business to support an increase in productivity and export sales," he added.

Last year, welcoming the new Belfast jobs, former Economy Minister Simon Hamilton said that the firm was a "leader in its field".
