Education pioneer Parker Palmer defined the objective of teaching as, “to create a space in which obedience to the truth can be practiced.” In our realm of Enterprise Architecture and Business Intelligence, obedience to the truth must not only be practiced, but consistently performed. The space we create is a platform from which trustworthy information can be consistently and widely shared. Our areas of expertise are intently focused on that clear objective.
