When we started out as an SAP reseller in 2008, end-to-end (E2E) solutions ruled the day. Large companies typically chose a primary, on-premise solution, like SAP, and then planned their IT resources and investments around that choice. The name RunE2E sounded pretty good to us back then.
Well, a lot has changed over the past six years, and those changes are transforming enterprise IT.
The traditional business software giants – SAP, Oracle and Microsoft – continue to thrive and still offer end-to-end solutions, but they face more competition and their customers rely less on a single platform to meet every business need. On-premise isn’t dead, either. But companies are moving more assets to the cloud and often seek integration between the two.
And then there’s mobile. Smartphones, tablets and mobile apps are fast becoming the primary tools used for transmitting and receiving critical business information. That simply wasn’t the case six years ago.
As IT needs have changed, our business has changed, too.
For starters, we do much more than resell SAP. We’re a consulting partner for cloud leaders like Salesforce.com and Amazon Web Services. We’ve also built a growing mobility practice offering commercially available products, custom enterprise app development and mobile strategy.
Matching top companies to skilled consultants
Our core business is a blend of contingent workforce solutions and advisory services. When our clients lack internal expertise or resources to meet critical IT needs, they turn to us — and our consultants.
All of which brings us to our new branding and new name: Run Consultants. We think it is a simpler way to say what we do — and who we are. We’ve built a great business as RunE2E, but it’s time for a change, and we’re excited about our new brand and the launch of our new website.
Stay tuned. It’s been a fun ride so far, and we can’t wait to see what the next six years will bring!
