CONSULTED is highly active and participatory within industry organizations and associations for cloud and open source. We believe involvement is imperative in gaining knowledge and developing alliances serve to develop and refine our strategies, solutions and services to benefit our partners and the business communities in which we associate. In turn, other organizations and associations gain from our experience and expertise.
Creating Best-In-Technology-Solutions ("BITS") is a primary CONSULTED objective; we believe in working with industry organizations and adhering to standards wherever possible to provide the highest value to our partners. Where standards and organizations do not exist, CONSULTED assists in working to create them.
