History

Our story began in 1985, when Digicon found a unique approach to doing business: providing IT services within the customer's business model. This unusual approach appealed to our customers because they weren't required to stretch their operating budgets. We assessed our clients' infrastructures and provided them with a clear assessment of where they were and where they needed to be. The end result for clients—even those burdened with legacy technology and equipment—was custom network and system optimization solutions that provided optimal performance and reliability for a solid IT fit.

As time went by and customers grew to value our IT services partnership, we expanded our business to provide a greater depth of services and capabilities to both long-term and new customers. And thanks to our commitment to customer service, many of our early customers are still with us today, which is a testimony to our business ethic and our dedication to lasting partnerships.

Beginning nearly a quarter-century ago, Digicon earned a reputation as a well-respected and sought-after IT service partner in a highly competitive marketplace. That's because, at Digicon, we've carefully managed our business growth, selected highly skilled and experienced staff, and diligently planned and managed the expansion of our core proficiencies.

We're extremely proud of our people, their accomplishments, and the awards and accolades earned over the years through their dedication and professionalism. We are also proud and appreciative of the partnerships we have established with product giants like Microsoft, Cisco, HP, Oracle, and Juniper.  These relationships enable us to provide our clients the high-level products and solutions required to meet the demands of today's ever-changing technology.
