There is no challenge too large for Babbage Simmel

The IT industry is constantly evolving.  We understand that every now and then your organization may need to change from one technology platform to another, sometimes very quickly.  Whether you’re an organization with a few employees or a large agency with numerous workers, there are no tasks too large for Babbage Simmel’s accommodation. 

Recently the Ohio Department of Public Safety (ODPS) moved to a Microsoft Windows-based system from an old mainframe application.  This huge transition revolved around a 30 person team of core developers and about 84,500 person-hours.  All of this was completely done in house.  Babbage Simmel is pleased to have been part of this initiative as the technical training firm enlisted to implement a customized training program for the DPS development team. Some of our finest trainers and resources were engaged here at BabSim getting ODPS team up to speed on the .NET technologies and everything they would most likely encounter during the major shift.  A big congratulation is in order for the chief of IT governance and strategic direction, Keith Albert, and his team over at ODPS for this successful campaign.

As mentioned in a recent Computerworld article, despite skepticism from many about ODPS doing all of the transition in-house, the project was a major success.  It’s estimated that the project will save the agency between $7 million and $10 million dollars over the next five years.  What organization doesn’t want to save that kind of scratch?

Babbage Simmel played a critical role in this transition for ODPS, and the training and support their team received will continue to shape their agency for many years to come.  So remember, no matter how big or small your challenge with implementing new technologies, Babbage Simmel has the right size solution for your needs.

You can read the whole article about the ODPS transition over at the Computerworld website, and below are some of our current .NET offerings.
