Our growth has been characterized by our vision and our agility. At every stage, we've anticipated the next wave of information technology for enterprise, and gotten there ahead of the pack.
We opened our doors in 1982. Early on we recognized the pressing need for enterprises to access and manage key data. So we began by developing software for the pharmaceutical industry. Our products were so effective we soon branched out into other sectors, meeting the needs of such major companies as Standard Oil and McDonnell-Douglas.
By the end of the eighties, we were installing LANs for our growing customer base, as well as developing custom software for them. Our abilities kept pace with evolving technology, so in the early-to-mid nineties, when the Internet phenomenon began to take off, we were right there, building out complex Internet infrastructure for e-commerce and content providers.
In 1996 we became a Cisco partner. We helped Cisco deploy the first SmartStart program to enable young businesses to afford the network infrastructure they need to compete. Our expertise and experience has broadened to include a wide array of cutting-edge technologies: large multiplatform, multi-vendor infrastructures, high-availability networks, IP telephony, and remote connectivity solutions such as VPNs, to name a few.
Where are we going? Into the future, armed with our long history of successes and our capacity to master and implement evolving technologies for enterprises on the move.
