The National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) is the leading independent provider of education research and insights in the UK. The NFER works with the government, policymakers, leading policy stakeholders and others to help ensure an excellent education for all children and young people.

When the NFER approached Dudobi to build and host their website, neither organisation could have envisioned the unique and mutually beneficial relationship and valued personal connections that would develop over the next two decades.


Dudobi had to ensure they were able to build and maintain a long-term relationship with the NFER as they expanded and evolved during a time of fast-paced technological and digital progress.
The NFER needed to keep pace with the ever-growing needs of the education sector and as the industry went digital, the amount of data to be stored and processed grew exponentially.


The foundation of Dudobi’s approach is our integrity, service excellence, reliability, teamwork and flexibility. We treat our clients with care, friendliness and respect, going above and beyond to assist them. Our knowledgeable and personable team always puts clients first, taking the time to understand their organisation, people and industry. This ensures that we are able to build craft custom solutions that meet their exact requirements.


From a small initial engagement in 1999, a partnership evolved that saw Dudobi touching on many areas of the NFER’s business. By always putting the client’s needs first and being adaptive and innovative, Dudobi was able to help the NFER meet their challenges, adapt to change and shape their digital evolution.

Working closely with their technical team, we have been able to support and guide them in the adoption of emerging technologies over the past two decades and more.

In Dudobi they have a reliable, trustworthy cloud solutions partner with whom they can discuss their strategies or debate their options, knowing we will always make recommendations with their best interests in mind.

“I value the longevity of our relationship with Dudobi which is made possible by their always reliable support, their trustworthy advice and their willingness to share their knowledge.”
