Excellent technology makes life better.

  • We know that excellent technology makes life better and work easier.

  • We know that doing technology right—maintainable, secure, sustainable—takes a real expert.

  • We know that not every business has in-house IT experts, or that sometimes you just need a little outside advice.

We fill that gap.

Who and Why We Are

After over a decade in services-oriented IT consulting, our founder started Filament Technology Consulting to focus on technology leadership requiring a deep understanding of our clients' business and how we can make their lives better through the creative, expert application of information technology.


How We Look At Things

A best effort, “we have a guy that ‘knows computers’” approach to information technology doesn’t work anymore. Not for any business that’s serious about being competitive and growth-oriented.

But so many companies still approach IT in this fashion: as something that can be an afterthought to the “real” concerns of running the business. If you’re doing this, you are making a mistake

Defining and leading your business’ technology initiatives is no longer a “good enough” enterprise. It’s part of what drives success. And, believe it or not, it's much harder and requires much more expertise to properly manage today's information technology than it did yesterday.

Why We Think This Way

Cloud technologies have made it easier than ever to get a new business off the ground. But, they have also made it much easier to accidentally expose sensitive data and become complacent with a “well, it’s in the cloud so we don’t really need to worry about it” attitude.

Ubiquitous connectivity has made it easier than ever to stay connected. It has completely changed the way that people look at work. But, it has multiplied the ways and methods that data thieves and other financially motivated criminals target even small companies.

Tech-savvy employees can use tech more efficiently to do their jobs and to get work done from more places. But, the“work anywhere, from any device” mentality that comes with those employees has eroded traditional network security and made laughable the idea that sensitive corporate data is all in one secure place.

These are not the types of concerns that “take care of themselves” or that are typically handled comprehensively by someone who “knows computers.” Filament was founded to bring expert technology leadership and management to businesses without such expertise in-house.

Who We Are

After 10 years of leading the engineering and customer development teams at IT Freedom—the world-class IT service provider based in Austin, Texas—our founder started Filament Technology Consulting to bring the value of independent technology leadership and development directly to our clients.

Prior to consulting with innovative and fast-growing businesses in Austin with IT Freedom, he was a part of the IT team at a Fortune Global 500 company and received a degree in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin.

We are sincerely looking forward to working with you.

 

Does any of this sound familiar?

 
 
 

"I'm starting a new company and we need to get our IT systems off the ground."

Starting a new business has so many challenges. If you are building an organization to compete and focus on its own mission, getting the technology right from the start will save so many headaches down the road. We can help.


"This just shouldn't be this bad!"

There is little worse than unreliable IT systems, systems that just don't make sense, or that force your people to jump through hoops for them rather than the other way around. We can help.

 

 

"I'm not even sure that we know what our risks are."

This is the hardest one. This is the one where you may not even realize that you have a problem. But managing IT risks these days is less about firewalls and managing servers in a closet and more about understanding the organization: from natural disaster, to security issues ranging from well-meaning employees exposing your data accidentally to targeted attacks looking to jump to larger targets, to simply accounting for all of your corporate data stored in various cloud services by various departments. We can help.
