Guest Post: Celebrating Thought Leadership in the Central Ohio IT Community

Today we have a new guest post for you from Steve Gruetter of Expedient. Steve is an active and well known force in the Columbus, Ohio IT community.

Here in Central Ohio, where our local economy is driven by insurance and healthcare—two industries that are recession-proof, but do not lead us to cutting edge technology—we need to have smart business leaders who find paths to new ways of doing business.

Recently, the Central Ohio IT community received a boost with the opening of The Forge by Pillar. The Forge is an Agile Development software studio that breaks the mold to engage the community as a resource for solving technology problems and achieving business goals through value focus, improved quality, and reduced waste. The space is conducive to creating innovative solutions by breaking away from the tedium of personal and professional constraints. This type of thought leadership by a local consulting company will help drive the entire Central Ohio IT community forward.

As other like-minded organizations begin to make similar commitments to excellence, the community can grow together to achieve success. The team at Pillar has put in place specific guiding principles for business and software solutions that lead to success. As the high tide comes in, all boats are raised.

The team at Expedient believes in these principles as well. By making the commitment to excellence in the data center industry by building facilities and processes to provide 100% uptime, Expedient allows their clients and partners to focus on the part of their business that matters most – the activities that provide value and drive revenue. Expedient is proud to be utilized by the team at Pillar.

Steve Gruetter, of Expedient’s Columbus facility, says

We are thankful for the community investment that Pillar is making and their positive impact in creating a center of excellence in Agile Development, right here in Central Ohio.

Angelo Mazzocco, President at Pillar and a respected leader in the Central Ohio IT community comments,

We are on an aggressive path of growth and require that our partners have the capability and commitment to match. We have a smart and secure partner with Expedient.
