Jonathan Bastin (Cloud & Infrastructure Director)

Jonathan has always been interested in technology since having his first computer as a child. He tinkered with IT at home before choosing it as a professional career and progressing quickly through the ranks through gaining experience and knowledge from various industries. He is a family man with hobbies such as target shooting and a keen interest in cars.

Daniel Davis (Network & Security Director)

Daniel has a Masters Degree in Engineering and started off his working career in construction. He realised that it was limited and challenging for him, thus bringing him to look into IT. He quickly realised much of what he learned from his previous experiences in documentation and workflow worked extremely well in IT. Daniel is also a family man, living a wholesome life in the country growing his own vegetables and looking after his coop of chickens.

Why did we start Blue Sky Systems?

After both working as consultants for IT resellers, Jonathan and Daniel decided that their ethos and ideology of good business were better suited to serving the SME community by bringing together their knowledge and expertise and founding Blue Sky Systems

Blue Sky Systems is founded on some core values:

  1. Understanding their customer's key objectives and requirements by working with them to really understand what they want from their IT so that they can make a genuine difference to their business operations
  2. Proposing a bespoke solution utilising products suited to their requirements.  Off-the-shelf solutions simply weren't good enough for SME's to compete with bigger, better-funded competitors
  3. Selecting technology and products that are best value for customers
  4. Doing good business with fair margins

'We really do know technology'

Both Daniel and Jonathan are amongst the most highly skilled IT technicians in the country, bringing skills from different areas of IT to create a fully-rounded solution. There isn’t an IT issue they can’t solve.  

Their knowledge and expertise are second to none, and they have the accreditations to prove it. But the difference between Blue Sky Systems and other IT service providers is their passion for IT.  Daniel and Jonathan are recognised as experts in the IT industry and are frequently asked to give keynote speeches or to assist Global IT brands with project work.

They are still very hands-on, too, constantly identifying or developing new products and services for the benefit of their customers. Together they designed and built our cloud platform, Truly Cloud, with its unique guarantees for reliability and uptime.

Their passion for IT is infectious – their enthusiasm permeates every interaction with clients and colleagues. The wider team comprises of only hand-picked technicians that meet their high standards for quality and service. This ensures that you get the same level of service from everyone at Blue Sky Systems – and that you have the people, knowledge and skills to reach your strategic IT goals.
