AIM Consulting Experiences 81% Year-Over-Year Company Growth, Opens New Midwestern Office

Results-Driven Approach and High-Performance Teams Drive Technology Consulting Firm's Success

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- AIM Consulting, a leading provider of technology solutions and services, today announced the company's 81% year-over-year (Q1 2013-Q1 2014) growth and the opening of its sixth office in Minneapolis. AIM's focus on building high-performance teams to more effectively deliver technology projects that meet business objectives remains the primary reason the company continues to win clients historically served by large, global consulting firms.

"AIM's key differentiator is that we help companies achieve their long-term business goals rather than just implement and configure technology with a shortsighted understanding of the challenges," said Bill VanSickle, AIM co-founder and CEO. "Our breadth and depth of experience, coupled with deep understanding of our clients' business, helps us act as solution partners, not job takers, and it's reflected in the results we deliver to our clients and satisfaction of our clients' customers."

AIM Consulting highlights include:

  • 81% year-over-year growth from Q1 2013-Q1 2014
  • Sixth office in Minneapolis opened in January
  • 84% Business Intelligence practice growth
  • 229% Business Systems and Business Strategy Consulting practice growth
  • 35% Digital Experience practice growth
  • Significant growth was also seen in the practice areas of Application Development and IT Infrastructure

"AIM has the same high standards with the people they bring in as we have for our employees, and we haven't always found that with other vendors," said Rene Gates, VP of client services, Optis. "People with both tech and business acumen who also have good people skills are hard to find but AIM attracts and hires them."

The complete Optis case study is available here.

AIM's network of consultants exceeds 600 experienced individuals across the U.S. The company's comprehensive services capabilities portfolio includes:

  • Application Development
  • Business Intelligence
  • Business Systems and Strategy
  • Digital Experience
  • IT Infrastructure, Cloud, and ITSM
  • Program/Project/Product Management

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
