2023 has been a hectic and challenging year on the global landscape, that has impacted DB Results and our customers, but we manage to head towards the 2024 new year feeling energised and positive. DB Results became B Corp certified during 2023, appointed a new Managing Director, continued to deliver for our customers every time, and DB Results is heading into our 20th year with an optimistic outlook.
In March, we were delighted to announce that DB Results has achieved B Corp certification, marking a significant milestone for our business in creating a force for good. We join over 6,000 businesses around the world and only 21 organisations in our peer group category, and the first in Australia. Becoming B Corp certified required a rigorous assessment of our company’s social and environmental impact, governance and transparency as a business. It was a two-year journey driven by members of our executive team, our employees and of course, it would not have been possible without your support as valued customers and partners.
As a B Corp company, we are now part of a global community of leading and innovative businesses that are on a mission to make the world a better place. We are committed to upholding the high standards that come with this certification. It’s great to get the validation of something we’ve been living and breathing for a long time of becoming a company that aligns purpose, planet and profits. Thank you all for your ongoing support in making this possible. This aligns with our purpose to enrich the lives of others in the areas of Health, Environment, Lifestyle & Poverty, below are some of the companies and causes we have touched this year!Ron Gauci has taken over the Managing Director role for DB Results Australia at the start of FY23 from Brenton McPherson who has successfully led us over the last four years and will now be focused on customers success. We are very excited to have Ron, one of the IT industry leaders (previously CEO of AIIA), take the helm; and look forward to him being able to provide continued great advice and guidance to our customers in 2024.
2024 marks two decades in business for DB Results. Over the journey we have continued to deliver every time for our customers, no matter the industry, challenge, technology, timeframe or country. There are a few fundamentals that have enabled us to successfully deliver for our customers time after time, including: on projects & programs, understanding the business outcome, getting requirements right up front, using the appropriate methodology whether Agile or Waterfall or combination of the two, and when we need to build, make sure that the Design, Data Model, Security and Architecture works for the solution today and into the future. Sounds simple, but you wouldn’t believe how many companies don’t get these fundamentals right at the start! DB Results does and that’s a major part in why we always deliver in conjunction with our customers and having a great team of people dedicated to deliver!
A huge thanks to all our customers, partners, friends, supporters, and DB Results people for your continued support this year and over the last 19 years; we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a safe, Happy New Year, leading into a prosperous 2024.
