We deliver decision support innovation to the edge.

Where is The Edge?

The Edge is not a specific place, but at any given moment it could be anywhere. It is any point where support, network reliability, power and other resources are scarce.

Those involved in the humanitarian response to the Haitian Earthquake are working at The Edge. Likewise, medical personnel in remote parts of the African continent, special operations forces in the Philippines, or those working to put out massive wild fires in Southern California are all working at The Edge.

They are tired, dirty and hungry. There is no helpdesk. There are no electrical outlets. 

But everyone there is still working to make a difference.
