Developing profitable solutions for businesses

Working smarter to build a better world for people like you and me by improving business efficiency through the application of common sense and appropriate technology.

IBM Partner

Collaborating, implementing and installing open source software on Linux® servers since 1998. Now extending that legacy to include containerized apps with Openshift Kubernetes in the IBM Cloud.


Protecting web applications with IAM single-sign-on OAuth authentication and access control with IBM AppID or Security Verify.

OS Transmogrification

Some projects start with
sudo dnf install xyz. Transforming an x86-64-bit laptop or tower into a Fedora Linux coders dream workstation enables that kind of project. First back up all the PC data. Then try a Live USB to test compatibility of Fedora with the hardware. Set the UEFI to boot from USB, then reboot the PC. If you are local and need some help with this let me know or for details click pdf .

Internet of Things ( IoT ;-)

If you like your IoT buzzword soup flavored with MQTT and LoRa, a side of STM32 Arm® Cortex®-based MPUs ... and RasberryPi for dessert, then you may want to garnish the selection with IBM Cloud Maximo Application Suite and some Node-RED.

Data Science

That open, secure, transmogrified, IoT is collecting a plethora of data. What better to do with it than Data Science of course? Bring the data to IBM Watson to "operationalize AI in your business". Think customized chatbots, image recognition, decision optimization, model building, natural language understanding and much more in the IBM Cloud catalog .

Implement DevOps best practices with CI/CD toolchains to gain an integrated set of tools to build, deploy and manage your apps. Add Gitlab repos, that feed piplines, for automated classic, or Tekton, delivery. For more related tools check out the catalog. Bring it all together with the Garage Method.
