Our Story

What's in a name?

Damson Cloud started life as a traditional technology company in the mid-2000’s by Fintan Murphy while still in school at the young age of 19. Damson was primarily focused on computer repairs in the Dublin area. A year later Donal Murphy joined the business.

We are a family run business and got our name from the tree house we had in our childhood home. Which was a Damson tree! Our Dad used to make Damson jam from the fruit each year and when we were picking a name for the business it seemed like the right fit.

It was our Chief Operations Officer Donal who saw the changes coming in the technology landscape. He pushed Damson to move in this direction very early on, little did we know at the time the importance of this decision for our business. In 2009 the decision was made to begin selling cloud services to our customers. Since then we have sold our old IT support business and focused 100% on Cloud products and services. We now specialise in cloud security and digital transformation and help our customers change the way they work.

Work is such a broad word it can mean anything from driving a bus to changing an IT system to heart surgery. It is the word humans have used to describe the thing they spend most of their lives doing and it is ALWAYS changing. There are always new tools and ways of working. At Damson Cloud we’re on a mission to help organisations break apart old ways of working and embrace new ones. We love technology and believe it can enable transformation and innovation when used correctly. We look forward to helping your business on its transformation journey.
