Why This…Why Now…

I’ve been a leader in the technology industry for over 20 years and in that time, I have been a part of many transitions. The world of desktops, laptops & servers; doing business on the internet (which many people thought would never happen), smartphones moving from an accessory to a necessity and this thing called the cloud. Technology is changing so quickly that businesses need to leverage the power of the cloud to stay relevant. Using cloud services means turning over some control, but it also means opportunity. Opportunity for growth, opportunity for change and opportunity for making people more productive.

Helping companies in the midwest stay relevant and grow is where my heart is. I want to do my part to help the economic growth here and cloud services help enable that. However, technology for technology’s sake doesn’t really help. What does…People! People make change happen and when you can prepare people to embrace, adopt and use technology, anything is possible.

Now is the time for this thing called cloud…It’s gonna happen (remember that thing I said before about doing business on the internet)…I know you need help, I know great people who can help…so why not start a company to bring us together and bring the power of the midwest and the power of the cloud together to make a difference in the world!

Who’s with me!!
