Looking Ahead

Ahead is a technology company based in Chicago, Illinois. It was founded in 2007. The company’s forte is on data center networking, enterprise storage deployment, server virtualization and management, and end-user and application virtualization services.

While the firm has the above stated capabilities as its name implies it wants to serve a company with the thought that it will also think ahead.  Hence, the company name.  If there’s one thing that’s very true today  is technology is constantly changing and it can change at a very fast pace.

A company installing new technology may be caught flatfooted realizing in a about a year’s time or two the technology they are using already needs an upgrade or has become obsolete.  Ahead understands the information technology industry and keeps abreast of the latest developments and trends. What it wants to provide clients is technology that can be used today while at the same time will still be relevant for the future.

Ahead thus uses the approach of not only addressing what is needed today but through understanding of the client’s business can also foresee what is needed in the future. Companies may spend for technology today and not have enough budget in the future for necessary changes. Ahead wants to make sure that it not only helps it client now but also in the future.

This is a good approach since the client will not look at it as a one-time deal and will likely use Ahead in for its future IT needs.
