VENDOR NEUTRAL We are a pure architecture & engineering (A&E) professional services firm. We are vendor neutral, we do not sell any products as a value-added reseller (VAR), and therefore only recommend 3rd-Party products and proven technology vendors that are the best fit for our client's strategic needs.
TECHNOLOGY AGNOSTIC As a first-to-market architecture & engineering (A&E) firm, we do not specialize on any single technology platform like a typical IT Consulting firm or MSP might; rather, we are diligent in staying abreast of the latest technology advances and primarily recommend proven technologies that are a good fit for the solution requirements and that have critical-mass acceptance in the market-place so you can rest assured that labor resources can be effectively procured when needed.
SERVICE PLEDGE We are committed to helping our clients become self-sufficient, to promote goodwill between Business & IT, to establish independence from vendors through the use of industry standards, and to help our clients achieve the ability to consistently and successfully deliver any sized project after only a single consulting engagement.

WHAT WE DO
TRANSFORMATION, INNOVATION, & PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT
In order to elevate the industry average success rate for Innovation from a dismal 29% (71% failure) to achieve a 90% success rate on large strategy, solution, and transformation projects, we needed to re-evaluate every industry best-practice currently in-use to identify the root causes that were contributing to failure. Over a 25-year period, we discovered more than 24+ blockers known as anti-patterns and re-engineered new enabling practices that provide simple anti-dotes to these reoccurring anti-patterns. Therefore, we innovate new solutions via next-gen practices that are purpose-built for results!
STRATEGY, ARCHITECTURE, & EXECUTION
Since most projects fail before they are even started, it's not unusual for us to save our clients thousands of dollars in the first few days or months of a project. Our most significant success story was saving one of our clients "hundreds of thousands of dollars" in the first 5-hours of the project! (read testimonial below) We were able to achieve this result because most anti-patterns reoccur over and over again so after 25-years of research we know just where to look. As a result, we are able to deliver strategic mission-critical projects with high-quality in a fraction of the time & cost!

❝Jonathan does great work and excels at designing solutions which are truly unique. Jonathan was a huge asset to our team.❞
-Steve M., CEO, Recovery Partners
❝Jonathan was brought in to design and develop our enterprise solutions architecture on a major digital health platform. Jonathan's ability to deep dive into the business, customer, and engineering areas exhibited a great depth to his skill-set. Jonathan was able to provide a business architecture solution that is allowing us to move forward, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in development that we would have incurred otherwise through building the wrong project. Jonathan's expertise and process was extremely thorough and eye-opening. Jonathan is full of integrity, has a great work-ethic, and is enjoyable to be around. He has a dedication to the job that is seldom seen in a consultant. He took his own personal time to read books on the relevant subject matters, to come up with very powerful ideas that we incorporated into our plans, and to present them well. We found Jonathan to be a fantastic addition to our team and we hope to be able to continue to use him in future stages of our project.❞
-Alex K., CTO, Recovery Partners
❝I had the pleasure of working with Jonathan multiple times throughout the past few years. He is a consummate professional and highly skilled consultant. He is able to work seamlessly both in a technical/architectural capacity and/or a interfacing/analyzing with various business users and stakeholders. I highly recommend Jonathan and enjoyed working with him!❞
-Matt J., Professional Recruiter, TekSystems
❝Jonathan is an IT swiss army knife with a rare combination of management, business operations, architecture and hands on technical skills. It’s hard to find one person that can move effortlessly between the board room and developer trenches. Talented, organized leaders who are highly effective at planning, stakeholder communication and developer team management are difficult to find. Even harder to find are highly technical architects who spent so much time hands on in the trenches that they can see all of the technical impacts, bottlenecks and risks of each architectural decision they make and understand the implications to performance, complexity, timeframes, security and ongoing operations years into the future. Jonathan is both.❞
-Patrick B., CEO, Motocol
❝Choosing Jonathan to design our integration architecture was one of the best decisions we've made for our product launch. Jonathan combines expert technical knowledge with business acumen to craft solutions which work for both environments. It's refreshing to work with a consultant that has unquestioned integrity and is driven by our success.❞
-Jeff H., CEO, OptiStok
❝Jonathan is a true expert in his field. We were able to reach our goal in a fraction of the time & cost thanks to his great guidance. I highly recommend Jonathan.❞
