Jason Bramsden, Managing Director at DVT (UK)

DVT offers ‘go big with microservices’ to help accelerate business growth and reduce costs of traditional monolithic eCommerce applications.  

DVT London, United Kingdom. – 25th August, 2020 — DVT, a cloud microservices development company, ​today announced it has officially become a BigCommerce Agency Partner. As a member of the BigCommerce Partner Program, DVT will now be able to offer clients headless eCommerce microservices powered by BigCommerce,​ a leading open SaaS commerce platform for fast-growing and established brands.

Jason Bramsden, Managing Director at DVT (UK) says, “Businesses struggle with costs, security and scalability with their old legacy monolithic applications. They find it difficult to be flexible enough to include ever-changing features within eCommerce across multiple channel touchpoints. Business adaptation to market change is confined by slow release cycles and legacy ‘Business As Usual’ work getting in the way of progress”.

“Microservices is a key part of modernising traditional applications, by having services broken into smaller scalable units that reduce costs whilst adding flexibility. To add to our ‘application modernisation to microservice’ offerings we have selected BigCommerce to be our eCommerce microservice provider for businesses and merchants that are looking for a true SaaS headless API eCommerce solution.”

DVT is a global custom software development company that helps businesses build solutions that are scalable, flexible and reduce costs. Application Modernisation with Microservices into the Cloud is one of our key services that help businesses quickly adapt to an ever-changing world. BigCommerce’s true SaaS eCommerce solution allows all businesses to sell products and services across a multitude of channels.

Daniel Fertig, Global Director of Agency Partnerships at BigCommerce said, “At BigCommerce, our core focus is providing our merchants access to all the tools and services they need to build, innovate and grow – and that includes introducing them to industry-leading agencies like DVT. I’m excited to welcome such a talented and well-respected agency into the BigCommerce partner program and look forward to working with them to bring additional value to BigCommerce merchants seeking a top-notch website experience.”

Tens of thousands of BigCommerce merchants have access to the platform’s robust agency partner ecosystem for support in creating differentiated shopping experiences to fuel their growth.

New Drone Pilot Training Program Builds Skills for the Renewable Energy Industry

The new “Drone Pilot Boot Camp + FAA Part 107 Exam Prep” is a collaboration between three companies: HeatSpring, Little Arms, and Unmanned Experts. They’ve built this unmanned aircract commercial operations course especially for engineering, construction and renewable energy firms.

Keven Gambold is the instructor. Formerly a combat pilot for the British Royal Air Force, Keven has spent the past eight years developing training programs for drone pilots with Unmanned Experts.

Logging flight time is critical for a great course. Little Arms is the software firm behind the top-rated Zephyr drone simulation software. Zephyr works across any platform and has a built-in LMS that allows Keven to review student progress and coach each individual student on their flying. Flying the Zephyr simulations with Keven’s oversight is an incredible way to build skills quickly and efficiently.

Kyle Bishop, CEO at Little Arms says, “We’re proud to announce our new partnership with HeatSpring and Unmanned Experts. The UAS industry is a constantly changing place, establishing effective and standardized training is a great way to help drive the industry forward as a whole.”

HeatSpring brings twelve years of technical online education and a deep understanding of what the market expects from a great course. They’ve spent two years designing this course and finding the right partnerships to make it happen.

“We looked at more than a dozen drone flight simulators and Zephyr was the clear winner for us,” according to Brian Hayden, co-founder at HeatSpring. “It’s built for a training environment and able to work on any machine.”

The course is great for anybody who wants to become a drone pilot, but the primary aim of the course is to unlock new opportunities for engineering, construction, and renewable energy firms. Drones are a powerful and relatively inexpensive way to increase revenue and lower costs on projects big and small.

The next course begins in April 2020 – students who enroll get immediate access to their Zephyr software program. Students who enroll in this session also receive a free FlySky FS-i6S Transmitter.
