about us

Blue Novation is based on the world-renowned BT Adastral Park Campus in Suffolk which has been at the centre of research and innovation for the past 40 years. We provide innovative solutions for businesses in the areas of software systems development, business intelligence, and staff development by utilising Microsoft software platforms. We have built up long-term, ongoing relationships with both local and national clients over many years which we firmly believe is the key to our continued success.

Formerly known as Desktop Training & Development, the change of name to Blue Novation in 2015 was a reflection of the move away from desktop to mobile devices and the increasing trend of cloud-based solutions. The word “Blue” is linked to the Microsoft Azure platform that we utilise and the word “Novation” derives from the Latin word “novatus” which is to make new, refresh, change. Blue Novation better reflects what our business is associated with today!
