Herndon based Windward IT Solutions, a leading IT service management and systems engineering firm, is celebrating its 15 year anniversary. Since its incorporation in the Commonwealth of Virginia in May of 1997, Windward has been a trusted partner of Communication Service Providers, the Federal government, and global Fortune 1000 corporations, many running the world’s most sensitive and mission-critical IT environments. Windward marks a decade-and-a-half by having successfully completed more than 1500 projects, each having helped clients align IT operations with real business priorities. Earlier this year, Windward realized a major benchmark, winning its largest military contract.

“Windward has remained strong over the past 15 years despite a volatile economic climate, and the constant change inherent in the technology industry,” says Windward Founder and CEO Sean McDermott. “We began assisting our customers by managing large scale infrastructures in the beginning of the dotcom boom. Since then, we have evolved into well-respected thought leaders. Windward provides the vision and the execution for IT executives who are driving their organizations into the Cloud.”

Windward’s three practice areas are built around a core philosophy of Service-Centric IT, which integrates comprehensive approaches to service strategy, aligns processes, and optimizes products that customers have already invested in. Windward, a pioneer and early adopter of Process Automation technology, has a proven set of technology-independent solutions focused on three core disciplines of Service-Centric IT: Operations Management, Infrastructure Management, and Service Management.

“The goal,” McDermott explained, “is to reduce operational costs, improve agility, re-align IT priorities with business objectives, and increase business value to end-customers.” Concurrent with those strategies, Windward has earned recognition as leader in the area of Service Automation and Cloud computing.

“There is no doubt that the IT industry has changed immensely since our founding in 1997,” adds Windward President Cindy Breed. “What has not changed is our ability to leverage our expertise to help our customers achieve success and remain leaders in their respective business with our deep and vendor-agnostic expertise across all three disciplines of Service-Centric IT. Our solid reputation and strategic thinking will secure Windward’s position as the premiere ITSM and systems engineering firm for many years to come.“
