Oh, the times are a changing...

Bob Dylan was right then, and he is right again now. Cloud based solutions have been a game changer within the information technology (IT) landscape. The economies of scale derived from virtual servers and other digital infrastructure components have transformed the IT industry in a relatively short period of time. Skill sets and tool sets formerly found in the hands of a few, are now widely available and have produced software applications too numerous to count.

Where there is significant change, significant opportunity usually follows. Today, businesses have many more IT options due to these changes. But understanding, selecting, and implementing these new capabilities can be too much for a business to undertake alone. That is where Arnica Bay Consulting can assist with objective, seasoned decision support as well as implementation and deployment support.

My existing systems are working, but...

Does your existing system largely work for you, but maybe comes up short in an area or two? Maybe certain existing system capabilities are limited and cause extra work that would be nice to eliminate? It might be that ABC could integrate with your existing system to fill those “processing gaps”. ABC offers a free consultation to determine potential “gap filling” options that might be available to you.

Welcome to Arnica Bay Consulting, my software business that is named for a wide spot along the intracoastal waterway between Bear Point and Pirate’s Cove! My roots run deep in this neck of the woods as my grandparents built their cabin in Bear Point Estates in 1955. A little later, my parents built their cabin in 1966 and I followed suit in 1997, building a summer house that eventually became my primary residence in 2011. It’s changed significantly over the years, but it’s where I want to be, and I consider myself fortunate,
to say the least!

My interest in software systems began immediately after graduating from the University of South Alabama. My BS degree was in business, with a concentration in finance, but personal computers had arrived on the scene, and something made me purchase one. I was hooked from day one, and from that first day, I knew information systems would have a major impact on my professional career.

Early on, I learned that I could utilize software to automate labor intensive tasks associated with accounting and financial positions. I also learned to develop software solutions when I needed automated solutions that did not exist. Over a forty-year business career, I was fortunate to work in large companies as well as small companies, gaining insight to the challenges facing management. In those years, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to solve business challenges with systems automation.

Opportunity called again when I joined a long-time friend and business associate to start a new company focused on personnel recruitment. Once again, information technology played a key role and ultimately the firm was divided, and I assumed the role of president of the software products division. Over the next fifteen years, we designed and developed regulatory case management software that was deployed in 20 states and Puerto Rico. Ultimately, the business was sold to a larger government software company where I remained until recently.

Arnica Bay Consulting is a small software consultancy business where I provide a valuable service to organizations that could use help navigating the complexities of today’s information technologies. If you find yourself in that position,
let’s get together and talk!

Life at the Beach
