We Make YOU the HERO!
Our clients call us when they have something pressing on their minds—whether it is a major strategic or operational need or an organizational challenge. They look to us for honest, objective, thoughtful, and experienced advice. We work with our clients to address these challenges, resolve complex problems and significantly improve their operating performance. We offer unparalleled technical expertise and high-impact solutions to resolve complex business challenges.
IJHANA [i-jah-nuh] is defined as concentration on a problem until it is resolved. Derived from the Buddhist idea Jhana which is a meditative state of profound stillness and concentration in which the mind becomes fully immersed and absorbed in the chosen object of attention. It is the cornerstone of IJHANA’s philosophy.
One Year Later
In 2006 we came together with an idea of helping C-Level executives approach technology from a different view point: as a revenue generator, not a cost center. In 2007, our initial Fortune clients helped us define our ‘Meet Your Where You Are’ strategy, while our start-up clients helped us focus these learnings.
The Year We Go Global
In 2008 we had the privilege of working with Sony SPTI on a worldwide platform to service their over 800 TV stations in 43 countries. The platform provided the TV stations with a robust CRM, global ad serving networks, video streaming services and eCommerce. With the design and build of this platform, which is still live today, IJHANA was deeply immersed in global internet protocols and was able to take away many learning’s that are still relevant in today’s global market.
Billion Dollar Platform
We were approached by a Fortune 100 company to design, build, and transfer a world class global eCommerce platform with the goal of generating $500M in annual revenue. After reviewing all of the top eCommerce platforms including IBM, Microsoft, and Oracle it was determined that the clients existing enterprise infrastructure could not support one of these silo-ed solutions.
With our ‘Meet You Where You Are’ approach IJHANA was able to architect an approach that leveraged cutting edge Open Source technologies that integrated seamlessly into the clients existing enterprise infrastructure. This approach allowed us to launch an eCommerce platform within months that far exceeded the clients revenue and performance expectations.
Becoming an Accelerator
We understand that there is nothing better than a great idea, except an idea greatly executed. Our startup experience goes back to 1995 and over the years we have seen companies go from zero to millions and from millions to zero. We combined our Fortune 1000 experience with our Startup experience to offer these companies insights into how to succeed and more importantly, how not to fail. These insights take companies years of maturity to learn, but our ability to bridge these learning gaps helps our companies succeed, faster and more efficiently.
Since 2013 IJHANA has helped accelerate over 15 startups. Those Startups have gone on to Incubators such as Amply, Muckers, and Idea Labs, received seed-funding, as well as Series A funding. IJHANA’s true passion lies with accelerating Startups.
We have a deep seated appreciation, passion and love for the Arts. We see art in everything, including technology. Since 2006 IJHANA has placed an high value on the role art plays in technology. From UI to UX to Database structure. Technology without Art, is function with form.
In 2017 IJHANA moved into Space 42 to help promote this connection between art and technology by creating a Design and Technology center.
Space 42 is a showcase for international Art, Technology, and Design. Complete with an Art Gallery, Technology and Design Center, and Concept Market. Space 42 creates a curated environment for discovering artists, exploring technology, experiencing the city, and connecting with like minded locals.
In 2018 IJHANA created Web Krewe. A Technology based Competition initiative designed to teach high school students how to work through the process of technology development from project inception through launch. The students work with coaches from their schools or organizations, with mentors from the business community, and with each other to solve complex business problem with technology.
The Web Krewe initiative is designed to expose students to STEM educational enrichment through this immersive technology challenge. The students express their knowledge through team competition while working on real world businesses, not hypothetical situations. The idea is to engage and excite the students about the opportunities available to them via STEM.
