The term, Internet of Things (IoT), has been around for almost two decades. So why does it sometimes seem like the new buzz word? IoT is still fairly early on in the evolutionary process, clearly still in the formative years. As we dive into IoT projects, development teams are dealing with significant changes in design, technology, process, and social and regulatory issues, making development increasingly complex and filled with risks.

Our capabilities in healthcare process management, enterprise transformation, process improvement, and performance management are worthy of any size operation, from family practice to Level 1 Trauma Center, and allow us to bring innovative perspectives to our clients’ opportunities and issues.
We care for the servers, applications, databases, and network appliances we support like they are our own. Looking for ways to make the environment better, helping lead the customer towards what’s best for them in the long run, and staying up late at night working on a system, not because we were asked, but because we know it’s needed. When one of us is in a meeting with the customer, discussing how we want to proceed with a project, the term “we” is used, not “you” or “them”.
Much of our reputation (our street cred, if you will) comes from our extensive data center experience. Having a centralized repository for storage, management, and dissemination of data and information — that’s a big deal.
