I am demanding! I like smart people! When it comes to finding a technology partner to help me with IT tasks and provide a few extra hands to do the heavy lifting – well there is just no substitute for smarts! As long as I am making a list of characteristics, I would also add functional and domain expertise and business and market value. I want the right solution and excellent results at an affordable cost. I want a partner with ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System (QMS) standards, well-tested business processes, systems and models. I also want a team that will go the extra mile to deliver timely results while maintaining superlative quality. My partner has to have a customer centric approach and work toward a sustained relationship and mutually synergistic growth. After all, my project, time and money are really important to me. I need to know that my partner feels the same way.
