In my first installment of a new weekly feature to be titled “Intellectual Capital” (on Wednesdays), I will be delving into the unconventional but effective business model of a Northwest company that is stirring up the pot in the IT Consulting and Software Development space, iFusionIT.
iFusionIT, LLC is a software development company that specializes in SOA (Service Oriented Architecture), Gaming, BI (Business Intelligence) reporting and IT Consulting. The Bellevue based company also has earned critical acclaim for its work in the Utilities and Finance verticals.
Established in 2006, the company has managed to stay on a clear path, even in the most trying of times, the last three years in particular.
The IT Consulting space is about as compact as the Telco space was a few years back. However, in keeping with the vision of its founders (IT gurus in their own right with a combined experience of close to two-thirds of a century), the company has stuck to its business model, by leveraging its solid base of partners, consultants and industry network, while executing with precision on its clients’ mission critical needs.
In addition to an office in Bellevue (its corporate headquarters), iFusionIT also has an office in India and the company has stayed lean and efficient, while maximizing its expertise and core competencies to its advantage, as well as that of its clients.
Most private organizations are reticent to talk about their growth, more-so in this most dire of economic times, in recent memory.
The leadership at iFusionIT however extolls its own virtues in this regard, pointing to its almost 200% growth (organically) over the last three years, again, in the face of some of the most emaciating economic circumstances.
How did they do it, you might ask? Well, for starters, they have never wavered from their number one guiding principle, that of understanding their customer’s needs and thus tuning their processes to meet those needs in a timely and efficient manner.
In the age of Cloud Computing, Lean Project Management and Data Warehousing, it can be rather easy for an organization to lose sight of what made them successful in the first place.
At iFusionIT, the focus seems to have always been on doing what was needed, when it was needed and precisely just the way it was needed.
That may sound rather simplicistic, but far too often, organizations make things more complicated than they ought to be, but at iFusionIT, the key to the company’s ability to stay ahead of the game, has always been to keep things simple.
While keeping things simple, iFusionIT has also understood the importance of pioneering in technological innovation. The company is able to support development projects, by virtue of its State-of-The-Art network infrastructure, it claims is second to none.
Furthermore and perhaps critical to its ability to be strategic, is that its project management team specializes in the most conventional project methodologies, such as SDLC, AGILE, SCRUM and WATERFALL, from design to implementation.
It is quite a tall order for a relatively small company to be so ambitious, but iFusionIT has shown that it has absolutely no qualms in mixing it up with the big boys.
The future will tell, but for now, it looks pretty bright.
Founded in 2006, iFusionIT envisioned building a comprehensive solution to lead IT Consulting services, Mobile Application Development, Gaming services and Service Oriented Architecture. The founding members have over 50 years of IT experience themselves; leading, developing and designing IT projects.
The company through its innovative ideas has grown in various verticals such as IT, Utilities, Gaming, Finance and Business Intelligence Technologies.
