Your business needs the right technology, at the right time
Technology has become a double-edged, dull sword. Outdated systems and ill-fit technology are drags on your business. Legacy is not only unfashionable, it will drive up your costs and reduce your ability to safely, securely and consistently execute on your business. It will limit your ability to grow.
Newer technology can bring benefits, but it has to be at the right time. A cutting edge solution does you no good if you lop off an arm or a leg. What's tested, tried and true? What are the potential impediments? What has the best long term prospect? Don't be a Goldilocks randomly trying technology. Most organizations fail to plan for obsolescence - or for the next upgrade, and as a result do nothing.
Do nothing, and your potential goes unfulfilled.
Focus on Timely Technology and get Results
We simplify technology decision making
We don't know it all, but our network is global, extensive and inclusive. There's likely not a technology platform that we haven't touched in some way because it's at the core of everything we do. We've touched everything from Mainframes to Cloud Computing, from node.js to Clojure. EDI, EAP, ETL - the whole alphabet soup is our breakfast, lunch and dinner.
But we've also learned to speak about these technologies in terms of benefit, cost and impact. We're not just practitioners, we're also executives - both sides prioritizing clear, concise communications. We have a strong desire to educate and show, not just do for you.
If no one can understand you - what are you talking about? If you can't teach what you know - what do you really know?
Partner with us for Results
Our Mission - build your Independence from never-ending consulting
Everything we do has a discrete engagement. We've found this drives results and creates a sense of focus and energy - this isn't about urgency. We strongly believe in educating as we go - after all, can you really do something if you can't explain it?
And that's ok, because we want to earn your trust and come back for the next opportunity. We'll always be transparent with our capabilities and availability - and if we can't do it ourselves, we've got a small, trusted network of partners and can even place known individuals to build your team.
Our network is global in reach and touches 18 - eighteen! - different time zones. Bring that arsenal to bear today.

Refocus Your Technology
We make sure your technology is right sized to your needs using three core strategies at the heart of every approach.

Our process is psychologically safe, but brutally candid, setting clear, achievable expectations.
Target Root Causes
We're not just putting out fires, we're clear cutting to the causes. We're huge fans of the 5-Why's approach and the insights we get along the way pay off across the entire organization as we determine the key decision factors.
We create a highly disciplined desire to address these root causes and the tenacity to tackle them.
We'll work with you to cultivate a culture of extreme ownership across your organization, creating an independent and resilient business, not create a billable dependence on consultants.
We create a mindset that tolerates failure, but does not tolerate incompetence.
