Its all about the data, said Bradley. Its not a cliché, its true. My customers have burned this into my brain. They tell me they have to understand, utilize, protect and preserve their data to stay in business. They also tell me the solutions that they adopt that meet those needs must help them control operational costs, improve efficiency for end users, and simple to implement and manage. These customer requirements are not easily met. At Solix Technologies, I found a team as passionate and dedicated to customers as I am, with a set of enterprise data management products that surpass our customers most demanding needs. We are a great team, and Im thrilled to be a part of it.
