SBR began operations in early 2000, as a business consulting firm, focused on developing strategic plans for technology. SBR worked with various organizations including healthcare, financial services, publishing, non-profit, and school districts. SBR consultants also served as state wide consultants to the James Irvine Foundation's CORAL initiative. CORAL stands for Communities Organizing Resources to Advance Learning. This initiative deployed learning technology systems throughout California, within Community Based Organizations (CBO).
By 2002, SBR grew into three key areas of practice; Consulting, Software Development, and Network Support and Engineering. SBR essentially became a one-stop-shop for ALL technolgy needs for small to mid-sized businesses, local government and non-progit organizations. SBR is able to take on the full function of a Technology Department for an organization, or come along side an existing IT department to handle special projects.
By 2003, a key partnership was established with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD). SBR was invited to handle a special project for the LASD, and late was invited to join the Southern California High Tech Crimes Task Force. Through this relationship, SBR gained a key comptency in Cyber Security assessements and safeguarding networks and critical data. In addition, SBR specialized in developing Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) solutions, and business continuity plans.
After the economic crisis of 2008, SBR developed more cost effective and budget friendly solutions. SBR rolled out new approaches to managed services, to enable fixed cost technical support methods, while maintaining flexibility to address special projects.
In this new year, SBR continues to pursue service excellence, by being mindful of the critical business needs of our clients. There is full spetrum of service offerings to fit any technology need and almost any budget.
