DATA#3 SHINES A PROFIT THROUGH THE CLOUD EVERYONE seems to benefit from moving to the cloud, Data#3 (ASX: DTL) is really benefitting though, welcoming a rise in revenue and profit as more people move to cloud-based solutions.

The Brisbane business technology solutions leader - which deals in solutions such as cloud, big data and security - saw its revenue grow 12.6 per cent to $457.5 million over the half year to 31 December and its net profit after tax increase 19.2 per cent to $4.3 million.

In an announcement to the ASX today, Data#3 CEO Laurence Baynham says the company has a strong balance sheet with no debt and he is confident future direction will support growth.
