Adelaide-based software specialist Alltraders has defied economic gloom as record demand for its Joomla-based website development encouraged it to kick off full-time operations last month with an inital head count of seven.
The Alltraders website business was bought two years ago by State Web Services Pty Ltd, owned by Michael O'Loughlin and Ben Horner, who have operated it as a part-time business since then.
Alltraders is a website hositing business that also develops sites for its customers. State Web Services also provides specialist software development services for corporate organisations.
After redesigning Alltraders' original bespoke content management system with the open source-based Joomla CMS, the business has reported record demand for its innotivative and easy-to-manage websites.

Adelaide-based network specialist MIMP has installed one of the fastest privately-owned wireless networks in the world to help SA Heart Centres deliver better patient care.
When Australia’s largest cardiology group, SA Heart Centres, recognised that its computer network was holding back its development by an inability to transfer large medical imaging files between branches, it turned to MIMP connecting solutions.
Using secure 120 megabit-per-second licensed microwave links, MIMP installed one of the fastest privately owned wireless networks in the world, which went live in November 2007.
The major benefit has been better patient care through providing immediate access to centrally stored patient records from any SA Heart Centres cardiology branch throughout metropolitan Adelaide. “MIMP has future-proofed our technology with a high performance network and predictable costs. We are gaining a rapid return on our investment," said SA Health Centres past chairman Dr Bill Heddle.

IT professionals’ advocacy group SAGE-AU has proposed a three-pronged plan that can protect families from objectionable Internet content without slowing Internet performance to a snail’s pace.
SAGE-AU (the System Administrators Guild of Australia) is a not-for-profit professional organisation representing system administrators in Australia. System administrators are the technology experts who keep computers and networks working, including much of the Internet in this country.
SAGE-AU President Donna Ashelford said the Federal Government had been widely criticised for the current incarnation of 'Labor's Plan for Cyber Safety'. “The proposed plan, which aims to filter and block objectionable material in a compulsory manner, is not technically sound,” she said.
