We are dedicated to providing the highest level of professionally managed IT services for our customers, which means our engineers and consultants are constantly achieving new certifications. One of our proudest achievements in the past year was becoming a VMware Enterprise Solution Provider (ESP), which is only awarded to a small percentage of VMware’s partners. Attaining ESP certification requires extensive coursework and hands-on technical training that most other IT consulting companies fail to implement. Our high level certifications also named us to the CRN Tech Elite 250 and CRN Fast Growth 100.
Black Diamond Solutions history timeline
In 2004 Black Diamond Technologies opened its doors to help companies with their most difficult technology challenges. Since then, we have been helping our clients plan for and implement best technology practices.
In 2008, Black Diamond became an official sponsor of the US Olympic Luge team. In addition to financial support Black Diamond became the Official Technology Solution provider for the team. Luge is the only sport that is measured in 1/1000th of a second and is called “The fastest sport on ice”.
In 2009, Black Diamond Technologies began a partnership with engineering firm ASP. ASP was a group of high end network engineers and consultants with experience building and managing high performance, highly available, and compliant data networks mostly in the financial and health care verticals. The partnership allowed Black Diamond Technologies to offer higher end consulting services as well as complement its’ ability to not only search out the industry’s best hardware and software solutions, but also be able to offer design and implementation services.
In 2012, Black Diamond was honored with being named CRN magazine’s 66th fastest growing solution provider in the country.
In 2013, after 3 years of a successful and mutually beneficial partnership, Black Diamond Technologies acquired the assets of ASP and together they formed Black Diamond Solutions.
The mantra of the company became IT Vision♦IT Process♦IT Solutions-Delivered. With the addition of the ASP team and the formation of Black Diamond Solutions, we now have strong capabilities that allow us to help our clients create an IT Vision on how to use technology as well as design, implement, and support solutions that align with that vision.
Also in 2013, Black Diamond was named to CRM Magazine’s “TOP TECH 250”. The list is comprised of the North American solution providers most committed to technical training and acquiring top certifications. With over 100 technical certifications, Black Diamond Solutions is committed to having trained and experienced staff on all solutions we recommend.
