Grown from one local newspaper to a multinational software company

Springville, UT, March 03, 2011 - Digital Technology International (DTI™) is celebrating its 30th anniversary as a global publishing technology innovator and thought-leading software company.

Don Oldham, chairman and CEO of Oldham and Associates LLC, founded Digital Technology International in 1981. Oldham and Associates were newspaper publishers who had ideas to improve efficiency, productivity, and quality in newspaper creation and production. The original software was developed for use in their own newspaper, the Utah County Journal.

The company has since grown to become a global market leader in news media technology, circulation, content management and advertising solutions to newspapers worldwide.  Every day, more than 2000 news titles publish using mission-critical DTI solutions.

“We have reached a major company milestone while also marking another profitable year in 2010. I am thankful to all our customers and staff, and especially to those who have remained with us since the very beginning,” said Don Oldham, CEO, DTI. “The news media industry is going through the most significant transformation that I have seen in our 30 years. It is also a time of unprecedented new opportunities with the proliferation of new digital platforms and emerging personalization technologies. I am as excited about what’s next as I was when we first adopted the Apple Macintosh to pioneer newspaper pagination. Fresh thinking and transformative technology remain at the heart of what we do.”

Looking forward, DTI is building on its reputation for innovation with the development of a new generation of solutions that address the major challenges and business opportunities facing the news media industry.

DTI is headquartered near Salt Lake City, USA, and now has offices in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Panama, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
