We specialize in the Linux operating system and open source web technologies like Apache, Perl, PHP/CURL, and MySQL but also support MUMPS based systems and proprietary Unix platforms.

The company was founded by James Penn-Dunnett a computer scientist and software architect with a background in medical informatics.

The company is named after Sir Gilbert Dynnocht, Vicar of Ardurnes (Durness) in Sutherlandshire about 1540 and sometime of Reay in Caithness who may have been known as Gilbert Dunnet of that Ilk. The name Dynnocht is a variation of the Caithness name Dunnet and in Scottish Gaelic it is spelt Dunaid.
