Berkeley, CA — February 17, 2016
FunctionOne, a global provider of Premiere IT services and solutions across all industries, and
1550a, the leading digital technology advisory in the building design and construction industry,
today announced their digital partnership. This collaboration provides FunctionOne
Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) clients with direct access to 1550a’s industry
specific CIO level leadership and insight.
“Over the last nine years, FunctionOne has developed an extensive skillset in servicing firms in
the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) space. We understand the infrastructure
required to enable these companies to compete effectively, and we have forged lasting
relationships with key AEC‐specific software and service vendors,” said Joe Markert, Managing
Director of FunctionOne. “We have been looking for a CIO partnership to enhance further
these capabilities for some time. Given our global footprint as a part of Dynamix Cloud Services,
we required a partner with global presence and experience. 1550a is that perfect partner and
we are excited as we know this new relationship will elevate our value to our building design
and construction clients.”
“FunctionOne’s ONESolution program combined with 1550a’s industry specific CIO Advisory
Services will enable building design and construction industry organizations the ability to
understand better, align, integrate, and manage digital technology. This partnership ensures
our clients have outcomes that better aligned with their organization’s strategic and
operational goals.”, said Darren Rizza, 1550a Visionary.
“Today’s enterprise networks are complex and ever‐changing, making it extremely challenging
to identify key points of attack risk on an on‐going basis,” said Rich Nitzsche, “The Scientist” for
1550a. “The partnership and integration between 1550a and FunctionOne combine two
powerful companies that provide clients with a new approach to understanding and negating
their risk in a meaningful and efficient way.”
“Together,” said Russell Genest, “The Connector” for 1550a, “We offer our clients industry
specific expertise and guidance in developing digital technology strategies based on the
strategic direction of their business coupled with the implementation and ongoing support of
the consented approach; a real closed loop solution.”
