Deltek, a major player in accounting and CRM packages for professional services firms and government contractors, wanted to explore the Internet space with online collaboration software. Taking task management to the next level of collaboration across a user’s business and personal life promised to evolve a more efficient, agile, and successful organizations. Researching current competitors, Deltek realized they had a business solution not identified by any existing software site on the Internet.
Transitioning away from a legacy of very large (heavy) systems developed mostly in a waterfall methodology, including Java/JEE and C#/.Net architectures, Deltek wanted something new and innovative. Deltek sought a company to help them build the next pervasive collaboration internet platform – a virtual equivalent of an open office environment for an organization.
