Our Story

Passionate about helping businesses work smarter, better and faster.

Workers discussing mainframe consulting

Established in 2002, Ignite Technology was founded on a passion for bringing the very best people, experience and innovation together to help businesses work smarter, better and faster. In fact, we pride ourselves for always excelling in doing the right thing, so we’re the best in our market.

We are a major supplier of IT software, consultancy and delivery services to businesses of all sectors, across the UK & Ireland, Northern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

We specialise in providing, implementing and supporting project & portfolio management, business automation, mainframe and cybersecurity solutions.

Our vision is for every single business to benefit from the latest digital innovation; helping them to work smarter, better and faster.

Our mission is to deliver tangible business value for each and every one of our clients and to be the best value-added distributor we can be for our partners, providing them with the best technology that’s the right fit for their needs and supporting them at every turn.

Our Values

Keeping our promises. That means delivering what we say; never over-promising or under-delivering.

Building long-lasting relationships. Working together to understand your technology needs, and always adapting to meet changing demands. Best tools + best practices = great outcomes.

Becoming your trusted advisor. If we don’t think a certain technology solution is right for your business, we’ll say so; we promise to always provide the best possible advice we can, to ensure your solution is as simple and as scalable as possible.

Our Journey

Here are just a few of our business highlights…


Founded in 2002 we established our first office in the UK, to bring new cloud-based CRM and document management technologies to the European market.


By 2005 we had become a CA Services Partner which enabled us to provide new project management resources which was the start of our longstanding relationship with CA, now Broadcom. Due to our continued success with CA Technologies, we became CA Services’ preferred partner for Clarity PPM consulting.


In 2014 Ignite Technology was established in the Middle East and Africa. We continued our expansion and set up Ignite Technology in The Netherlands, running all Northern Europe projects with additional offices added in the Czech Republic and Sweden.


We provide a full suite of enterprise software solutions and services from some of the world’s leading enterprise software vendors including Broadcom, SER Group and Planview.
