Years of Experience


Altus Technologies Corporation began in January, 1996. In the same year, Altus was able to assist several firms in the Cleveland Ohio, area to streamline IT processes and augment technical staff. During this time, Altus became an authorized IBM business partner and became a nationally-focused company. In addition to IBM, Altus partnered with several security, networking, and software tools companies.

Over time, we assisted Fortune 1000 companies (and above) in data center moves and technical project management. We also began providing our customers with systems architecture, integration and strategy solutions, as well as data center service offerings

Works with clients to analyze their IT environments and map them into organized architectural frameworks as part of complex infrastructure projects.

Andrew worked for over two decades at IBM where his ability to see how all the technologies work and potentially fit together led IBM to tap him as one of their first Network Engineers. He designed and implemented both the network and network security for many large networks, but his deep knowledge of distributed systems, mainframes, database, and middleware in addition to networks and security led him to become an overall IT Architect.

For 21 years (the last 14 of which have been with Altus) Andrew has specialized in large, complex projects, particularly data center moves or mergers, or other major infrastructure adjustments where his ability to analyze all the different technologies involved and map their path to the desired end state and to troubleshoot difficult cross-platform problems has made him the resource that clients always want to keep.
