Hugh Simpson-Wells, CEO and Founder, Oxford Computer Group

Oxford Computer Group has been around for 35 years. In that time the IT world has evolved with it – shaped largely by customer needs. We started out working on applications long gone, like SuperCalc and WordStar, and moved on to Logistix and Open Plan. We caught the Windows wave. The last 15 years has been more or less dedicated to the Microsoft Identity stack. And again we are evolving – towards the cloud, and all it has to offer in terms of economies of scale, flexibility, and mobility.

Oxford Computer Group (OCG) is a federation of companies with a common mission, sharing common values and technical expertise. Recently the training arm of OCG rebranded from OCG Learning to Oxford Computer Training, which we think better identifies who we are and what we do – and actually it is what we were called originally.

In Germany, Austria and the USA we trade as Oxford Computer Group, while OCG is represented in the Netherlands by Trusted-ID.

In October 2018, our UK consulting arm changed its name to ThirdSpace, to better reflect how important cloud mobility has become to their customers.

Change is what makes IT exciting – it’s what continues to get me out of bed in the morning. And I am already looking forward to the next evolution – whatever that is!
