For nearly twenty years, this small business with a niche expertise has helped complex organizations leverage their data into enhanced actionable decisions. Today, the firm has developed recognized expertise in enterprise IT strategies, business intelligence and analytics, data warehousing, knowledge management, and information architecture.

We help clients access data and store it efficiently and effectively, and train their staff on how to access it and make decisions based off their findings. We also provide training on how to build and interact with a data warehouse, and how to establish knowledge management strategies to capture employee's knowledge for the benefit of the larger organization.

When the organizational challenge involves conquering the overwhelming flow of data we can provide a custom-built, vendor-neutral solution that will allow you to manage your data efficiently, within a business intelligence strategy.
