About Us

Data is what we do


In-house expertise is invaluable to businesses of all sizes – you know your systems and your business better than anyone. But sometimes it takes a guiding hand to help you take that next step. That’s what we do.

Whether your needs revolve around design, implementation, maintenance, or verification, we can help you ensure that your data is protected and available, when and where you need it. Our consultants have years of experience architecting information technology solutions. We’ll get to know your company’s IT environment and its specific needs, then recommend solutions tailored to your needs.

We’re also happy to help you build your own in-house expertise by taking the time to teach your staff what we did, how we did it, and why. Our consultants speak at events of all sizes, from local user groups to webinars to regional and national conferences, including SQLSaturday events across the nation and the PASS Summit, the largest SQL Server conference in the world. If your needs are more specific, we can also create custom training classes for your company or group.
