Reignition — Sep 25, 2016

A personal note from Mack Earnhardt, Founder and Managing Principal of Agile Reasoning:

Early History… Agile Reasoning began in 2007 as a way to return to the software development I did in the 80s and 90s. My first consultancy, founded in 1999, focused on database management, technology infrastructure, and network security. We grew to over $1 Million in revenue with Fortune 500 clientele, but by ’07 I was itching to get into web applications. Given the success of Salesforce in popularizing the SaaS model, I saw potential to leverage web technology to serve internal business needs. Pivoting was an option, but selling my consultancy to start fresh allowed me to focus my full attention on a different facet of technology.

From 2007 to 2015, Agile Reasoning operated as a boutique consultancy creating applications to fill a variety of client needs. We offered cloud management as an unheralded sideline, and happily the timing coincided with the rise of cloud computing. I’m pleased to say Agile Reasoning has never owned a physical server and likely never will. Agile Reasoning built a reputation for solid development skills by word of mouth, and it was so successful that few people remember I ever did anything else.
