Break Free From the Status Quo

Digital disruption fueled by innovation built on mobility and cloud computing is reshaping industries. However, today’s typical enterprise IT organizations are caught in the status quo quicksand of being a reactive force and maintaining deteriorating assets and products, which is a model that’s no longer viable. Business leaders must force a shift in how their IT organizations operate, which means embracing new technologies and facilitating innovation. BreakFree Solutions is rooted in the shift away from status quo IT and helps customers change the trajectory of their IT investments by accelerating to the cloud, transforming data centers, and automating IT services.

Working With Us

The BreakFree Solutions team realizes that while the industry has shifted, the majority of enterprise IT groups have not. This resistance to change is inhibiting IT organizations and the business units utilizing their services. But the time to act is now, and IT organizations must adopt an a new IT operating model focused on enabling innovation instead of managing assets. BreakFree Solutions speeds the adoption of this new innovation-enabling IT operating model through experience and expertise, collaboration and facilitation, and a comprehensive delivery framework.
