Leveraging world-class enterprise cloud platforms: Linium

Headquartered in New York City, Linium was founded in 2000 and is dedicated to helping organizations succeed in aligning people, process and technology. It is this focus that shapes every client interaction and drives the evolution of solutions and services that keep its clients on the forefront of innovation.

At the commencement of the dot-com era, businesses moved their investments from costly ventures to those that leveraged the power of the Internet. Companies were looking to understand how to utilize and exploit new-age technology, all while achieving maximum ROI and efficiency. These concepts combined with the founders’ knowledge of both consulting and strategic recruiting solutions, created a unique business opportunity for Linium which set out to capture an opportunity unfolding in the evolving industry of the early 2000s.

Making the shift on time to focus on innovation
“At Linium, we understand that organizations need to access data, analytics and services quickly; anytime, anywhere. Our solutions are tailored to deliver this exact dynamic focusing on superior customer experiences. We leverage world-class enterprise cloud platforms, such as ServiceNow and Oracle, as the foundation to provide growing businesses with the most innovative solutions that enable the capability for customizable mission-critical applications on scalable platforms. Rather than just tackling projects, we help clients solve real business challenges to confidently achieve enterprise scale by leveraging the best in people, process and technology. We use the mentality of making technology work for you, not the other way around,” says CEO, Joe Burke.

Linium helps some of the world’s fastest-growing companies become lean in technology, while positioning them to achieve enterprise scale and growth confidently through lower costs and increased time-to-value. Solving a range of challenges from providing transparency into enterprise planning and budgeting to streamlining the delivery of essential services into one unique business-services portal.Linium provides organizations with solutions and services that help them gain tangible efficiencies throughout the enterprise by solving everyday operational challenges. In turn, this effort allows executives to focus on innovation and growth.

The agile Linium approach
Linium’s approach is based on thousands of customer experiences, proven processes and leading industry best practices. Linium aims to take a wider focus than most business technology consulting firms; rather than simply implementing a solution to solve a single problem or set of problems, our methods take an enterprise perspective and are business-driven.

Linium’s focus is on building the business by giving clients the solutions and strategies to lay the foundation for enterprise excellence.
