Transitional Data Services excels in the rapid delivery of efficient and cost effective IT solutions that cannot be practically delivered by either the in-house staff (due to lack of time), conventional outsourcing providers (due to lack of flexibility) or IT contractors (due to lack of supporting infrastructure). Their specialization is the automation, integration and optimization of service delivery processes that improve IT efficiency, agility and effectiveness. TDS terms this collective capability as service orchestration. Their experience is that service orchestration enables IT organizations to more effectively transition from their current state into one that is more efficient, agile and effective and therefore better aligned with their company's core business. TDS has also found that service orchestration really enables IT organizations to do more with less, especially in the implementation and management of next generation data centers.

Candela Solutions is a public accounting firm working with boards and management teams to help them reach their objectives through governance, internal auditing, technology, strategic planning, and change management. Candela also has specialized competencies to service governments, middle market companies and start-up businesses. Candela strives for results rather than elaborate reports which simply sit on a shelf. For example, they take an operational approach towards governmental mandates to add value as opposed to merely achieving compliance. The delicate balance management faces is walking the line between noncompliance and over-compliance. The common question is, 'How far should we go, and are the costs justified by the benefits?' The key is finding the optimal balance and securing a comprehensive solution and consulting expertise to build value beyond a strict compliance approach.
