The company officially opened for business on November 1st, 1998, however, as with most companies the
experience and knowledge brought to Ten Digit Consulting by it's founder began many years ago. In fact the
experience at Ten Digit Consulting can be found at very few consulting firms. We have been working with
DB2 on Intel platforms since 1991 when IBM introduced it's third release to the then 16-bit OS/2 Extended Edition with Database Manager version 1.3.
Ten Digit Consulting has operated as a Michigan corporation for six very successful years between 1999 and
2004. In March 2005, and after one of the most successful years in business, Ten Digit Consulting relocated
to Norcross, Georgia. In 2007 Ten Digit Consulting relocated to South Florida.
