Application design, implementation, performance tuning and educational training to those who desire to be far better than the “best”, as publicized in IT journals. This atypical approach will utilize n-tiered architectural approaches, with integration of products and services that are both IBM and vendor-based. This includes the effective management and use of any data types/content management with interchange capabilities for seamless LOB integration. It also necessitates “thinking completely out of the box”, which allows the systems and those individuals involved in the efforts to so ‘leap frog’ the competition that there leaves no doubt ‘who’ and ‘what’ the industry looks to for guidance and design models, when all traditional methods fail.
