High end IT solutions for individuals and Companies.
Welcome to the Seer Computing website, it's quite a comprehensive site so make a cup of tea or coffee before you delve into it, we've been around since 2000 so there is a lot to tell you about us including;
a comprehensive list of high end, high quality IT technical training courses, our technical consultancy facilities including Database design, Project Management options and
our bespoke App design and development
for both Android and iOS.
Let's start with the IT technical training courses
, there are over 100 to choose from, they range from User level courses such as
up to Programmer level courses like
, each course has its own
webpage for you to view its details, we've categorised our sitemap
to make the training courses easier to navigate. The course webpages are all laid out in the same style, the first part consists of
summary information necessary for you to see at a
glance the duration of the course, number of exercises in the training and what level of expertise is needed for a delegate to be comfortable when attending the course (speak to our training advisors
if you need to discuss the skill set of people
when booking the training), in some circumstances we recommend splitting the team into two courses so that people with more advanced skills can be given more 'taxing' exercises with a slightly faster paced course.
All hundred plus of our technical IT training courses are available onsite
, that means we come to your premises, you provide a suitable room for your delegates to work comfortably in, sufficient tables and chairs etc., we are unique in that we do not
need to use your network or any of your systems (not even your Database), we bring all of the equipment necessary to give you a first class training experience. Each Delegate gets a workstation for them to use individually for the duration of
the training course, if necessary and at your request, Delegates can work together.
Another advantage of onsite training is that you pick the start dates and times, co-ordinating the various needs of your Delegates can be like juggling eggs with boxing gloves, having the freedom to pick when the training takes place
removes one headache, another might be the personal commitments of staff, again we are very flexible with our "at your venue training
", you can specify what time we begin the training to accommodate family needs, appointments etc. and as long
as we can still fit the course in, you can also specify finish times, in fact we are so flexible we can train on weekends and even at the end of work shifts (talk to our friendly sales people to discuss).
One of the main advantages of onsite IT training is that your Delegates will not be incurring any travelling or overnight subsistence claims, when we quote you for training you will find that not only are our charges quite reasonable
but they are also inclusive of any expenses we incur providing the course, no hidden extras, no expensive hotel and travelling charges on top of our quotation, what we quote is what we charge. Full stop, period.
For convenience we have listed the categories of our courses for you to compare them side by side, well actually up and down but you get the gist, there's a comparison of our
Oracle SQL courses
our PLSQL courses are listed
, as well as
MySQL course breakdowns, PHP versions
All of our courses come with exceptionally comprehensive training manuals, they are for each Delegate to keep and make notes in, they all have example workings and where appropriate, screen shots, these training course manuals form an invaluable
aid as a reference book following the course, they are printed on 120 gsm paper and are made to survive both the course and being used for months and indeed years following the training, our Consultants report seeing them on people's desks well
after they have attended the course (the pens we also supply for the course may have run out in a few instances but people keep them because they incorporate a torch, although most take them home for their kids!!).
As well as onsite, all of our IT training course can be scheduled at venues close to your offices, sometimes you don’t have the space, we arrange the venue etc. again relieving you of the hassle. Of course you and your Delegates can come
to our offices in Swansea
, so close to the Mumbles, the
number one place to live in the UK 2019 according to The Times newspaper
why do you think we live here! One of the advantages in coming to our offices is that we will introduce you to the Swansea evening life
, you can
sample Joes Ice Cream
and we will treat you mid-course to a curry in one of the many restaurants on St Helen's Road
, just a five minute walk from
our offices, we won't encourage you to sample the local ales
(much) you have to have clear heads for the course.
A number of our courses are also available at a variety of public conference centres throughout the UK and Ireland
at set dates in the year, these range from
the capital of the UK, London
, the capital of Wales, Cardiff
capital of Scotland,
and the capital of Ireland, Dublin
, there are other public training sites and they all have one thing in common; they are all held in conference facilities
close to transport links,
there is plenty of refreshments throughout the day and lunch is provided, course numbers are kept to six which means you don’t have to shout across a large room over fifteen other delegates to ask a question.
Our public courses mean that if it is only you attending that you can get high quality IT training
with us without having to travel too far to get it, check out the Public training course locations and we list the training and the dates coming up.
As an aside we can also provide one to one training if you need to learn a language quickly and wish to have 100% attention from one of our Training Consultants.
A lot of people ask us why we are called 'Seer Computing', the answer is quite simple, when we were first incorporated in 2000 we originally set out to be an
, providing a number of different aspects to that
Database Analysis and Business Information consultancy
and of course
, we couldn’t call ourselves 'Oracle
', that name was already taken! But we could call ourselves '
' which is a synonym of 'Oracle', in other words someone possessing
wisdom, insight, a wise person, a prophet, an Oracle, and we believe that’s a fair summation of our skills in the Oracle Database product, we haven’t lasted this long without knowing a thing or too!!
One of the things we noticed when we are presenting our IT courses is that our reference Appendices are used quite a bit during the exercises. Our Course Appendices are very comprehensive but they can't be searched and there isn’t really any room for
working examples, so we began designing Apps to help everyone in a particular language to understand what's available in the product, so for example we have published an
Oracle SQL functions App in both Android and iOS
, there's also an app for PHP functions
another App for MySQL functions
, but we got a little carried away, not only are each functions listed but we break down what each Function does with working examples,
plus because we know where the problem areas are, for example, we also give date format
examples etc … don’t think of them as a replacement to our training courses, more like a supplement for when you are working in Oracle SQL, PHP or Java etc.. If you have a programming language or need to
create a reference App
get in touch.
We've been offering bespoke App Development
for a number of years now, sometimes we promote the App such as
Ana Chidzoy's A-Z of Yoga
sometimes we keep discreet and we simply build the App for a
Company for them to promote, we have several in the pipeline including a rollout of our PAPA template which is effectively a way to publish via an App, it’s a magazine App
it’s a newspaper App
, it’s a periodical App and with our facilities we can
customize it to a Company's or an Organisation's requirements. We're thinking of setting up App training courses in Xcode and Android
, speak to us if you want to register an interest.
Don’t forget that a lot of Android Apps are created using the
Java language and we can already provide training in Java 11
, in fact our association with Java goes back to well before Oracle purchased Java from Sun, we particularly like using
Java Swing to interface with Oracle and MySQL databases
, guess what,
Oracle own MySQL now as well! We have listed all of our Java courses for you to compare Java training
Talk to us if you have an App idea but don’t have the skills to turn your idea into an App
reality, we have a number of ways of working with you, you can of course simply pay us to build the
App but we can also talk about an App collaboration
sometimes it's good to have different input from different areas, and it doesn’t have to be a Uber App or something that big, many successful Apps are niche market but of use to a lot of people, we could build a Uber App by the way (just saying).
If you are wondering what it takes to build an App
we have a nice webpage breaking down some of the areas that need attention.
One of the other services we provide is our Data consultancy, this can be anything from an overview of your current Database producing a comprehensive report and recommendations, we can analyse your future requirements and also build your new
Database for you, if you have time we have morphed our ideas into a cartoon character called DataDog
, he's just a way to visual the problems you can have with Data and how Seer Computing can help you.
We also operate a technique called Data Coaching
this is about intense sessions with your analysts to tear down the weaknesses of your current Data storage and to build strong healthy Databases in return.
With over thirty years in the IT business, our Senior Consultants are well positioned to Project manage your IT systems, this can range from an occasional overview to running a Project on a contract basis, this gives you
flexible Project Management
when you need it most, no job too small, no Project too large, think of us as Project firefighters when it gets out of control for your people.
All of our webpages have our contact details at the top and the bottom (belts and braces), so there is no excuse to not get in touch, together with appropriate enquiry forms which ask relevant questions for the page you are on, there is of course
the obligatory contact page
plus information about privacy
etc. we do not have any cookies on this website which is
