By applying innovative thought and decades of experience, we are able to develop and deliver integrative solutions that make technology investments more valuable.

We value skill, knowledge, imagination, enthusiasm, and commitment. We hire, develop, and retain talented individuals who want to be part of a great place to work, where contributions to superior results are recognized and rewarded.

Innovation – We exist to provide sensible and innovative solutions to our clients. As an organization we are always prepared to respond quickly and creatively to our clients needs.
Management Team Evolution in Consulting o Economic realities no longer support hoards of consultants with feet-on-the-ground at the client site. BCG replaces the old paradigm by applying lean and Agile principals not only to our project management activities but also to our overall corporate operations and internal processes. o We are constantly learning and reassessing out processes. We focus on minimizing costs and shortening development cycles by committing to a process of continuous assessment and personal ownership of our processes at all levels.

Rohit Soni CTO and Principal Consultant "Economic realities no longer support the hoard of consultants with feet-on-the- ground at the client site. BCG replaces the old paradigm by applying Lean and Agile principals to its operations and team alignment. Creative application of appropriate technologies and talents supported by a flexible and adaptive management philosophy minimize costs and shorten development cycles... PB" "It is critical that, as Engineers, we constantly review and learn from every project we participate in. No matter how good an engineer or team is, there exists the opportunity to improve on every point in a project. Even though a good Engineer will be constantly looking for improvement opportunities, we should all set aside a brief, dedicated period of time to deliberately reflect on how we are doing and to find ways to improve...
