Running a business of any size has many challenges and rewards. When we founded CheckPoint Consulting ten years ago, the market that we served and the general business landscape looked very different than it does today. As we were building the company we experienced the explosive growth of social media, the economic meltdown in 2008, the advent of big data, the ever-increasing demand for cloud-based solutions and many more factors that dramatically changed our service portfolio and also how we ran the company. While, as a growing consultancy, we experienced these challenges and opportunities in our own way, we reminded ourselves that our customers were also experiencing them. This awareness is at the core of our success – we understand that how we experience the market impacts the solutions we provide to our customers.
