Any successful engineering firm is rooted in its ability to get work done. However, as organizations grow, a gradual slide towards process and procedure can often harbor new inefficiencies. In today’s competition-driven world, these services extend to a wide range of technology solutions that also come with the right solutions, including IT, security, and others.
With the certainty of knowing that ‘Competition is here to stay; so be ready to fight the battle every day,’ Thomas R. Truitt established Open Systems Technologies Corporation (OST) in 1996. It runs with an aim to provide solutions to challenging problems experienced in engineering endeavors, such as IT and embedded software systems. Even after two decades, it believes that there remains a big push for open source software. With a vision and passion for building perceptive engineering solutions, Open Systems Technologies is providing the best customer experience that exceeds expectations.
Being in the industry for more than two decades, Open Systems Technologies is a pioneer in engineering solutions. “I have seen the need for more standards-based implementation to ensure knowledge transfer and increased competition for the good of engineering consumers around the world,” believes the founder and CEO of OST, Thomas R. Truitt.
Only the Best Engineered Products and Solutions
It all started in the late 90s when Open Systems worked on its first project to support the enterprise build-out of a new infrastructure for a large Fortune 100 company. This was the time when the web was still on the verge of becoming mainstream for large enterprises. “We spent the next two years installing, configuring, and building a software platform that was useful throughout the enterprise,” recalls Truitt. There was no turning back ever since!
The company provides a variety of technological solutions to large-scale business and government enterprises, including cloud computing and virtualization, identity and access management, and host-based intrusion detection and monitoring. It also has a number of certifications including CA technologies, Oracle, IBM Tivoli software, CompTIA Security certification, and so on.
With these products and solutions come a wide range of trusted customers for Open Systems Technologies, including governmental enterprises. “We have supported both Federal Government and City Governments in engineering systems and software,” proudly notes Truitt. This has been a big boost to the company from performance, functional, and contractual perspectives and has acknowledged the team to exceeding expectations. The success mantra has been to always passionately offer superior results to each client seeking only the best in information security. This has driven it to ensure every solution from OST has the mark of quality and specialization that it is known for.
On a recent note, OST is releasing a new corporate program for attracting, training and retaining technical talent right out of college. With a prime focus initially on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) graduates from Engineering Schools from around the country, Open Systems Technologies has set the goal to train young talent on specific technologies that are being utilized in the areas that it excels in. These areas include Cybersecurity, Java/.NET Development, and Test Automation.
Delivering only High-quality Results
From building better engineering IT infrastructures to the incorporation of Cloud and Virtualization Technologies, today Open Systems Technologies is showing off its corporate brand by sharing the brain trust diversity of its employees. It employs its people from around the world from various cultures and ethnic backgrounds. By allowing the employees to work autonomously, OST is providing not only professional growth but also ensures there’s an all-around development of its employees.
The team at OST is committed to delivering high-quality, best-in-class results at reasonable rates that bring added value to every project. The team is dedicated to the Open Source community and Agile software development processes. “Our client-first philosophy extends to every action we take on behalf of a client’s benefit because we believe they want results in a shorter time-span,” says Truitt.
As the company continues to foster relationships around the globe, OST will continue to lead the charge for providing the best engineering services to its customers on a worldwide level. This means that it will rethink its operations in a way that can provide scale as well as efficiency, as it continues to provide the very best engineering solutions to its customer base. “We will strive even more to be agile and quick to respond to the ever-changing technology landscape while continuing our quest to make our best even better for new generations of technology consumers,” notes the CEO.
