Convergent Computing's Strategic Consulting Advantage

Choosing the Strategy Consultants with Realworld Experience

CCO Executive Sponsor Relationships

The success of a strategic relationship is to have an Executive level connection, and as a privately held organization, CCO has no complex internal business bureacracy. As such CCO's execs see eye to eye at the strategic executive level relationship with its clients.
This strategic level relationship helps CCO in providing a top-down approach and a deep business level focus to its role in providing business focused guidance.

Years of Hands-on Technology Experience

CCO's Consultants aren't just theorists when it comes to their knowledge of technologies, but rather CCO's consultants have hands-on experience implementing, integration, and supporting technologies. As such, the consultants understand what works, what doesn't work, and how various technologies can be leveraged to help an organization archive its business goals and initiatives.

Academic Knowledge and Real World Business Experience

CCO's strategy consultants are MBA and Ph.D. educated individuals with years of real world hands-on business experience. The consultants take their knowledge of how things work and combine it with an academic background of business, economic, and operational best practices to formulate their strategies and recommendations. This blend of knowledge and experience provides a practical approach to addressing the needs of an organization.

Early Adopter Technologists

CCO's Consultants get an opportunity to work with technologies years before the technologies are available to the general public. This helps the consultants understand the future not through the "potential" that something might be available in the next few months, but from real world hands-on experience with future technologies. This also helps organizations adopt technologies sooner, rather than being a generation or two behind and always catching up, the ability to potentially leverage the latest in technologies can help an organization keep at the forefront of the marketplace
