Founded in 2007, AHEAD grew up in the data center and retains its deep infrastructure expertise at the core of its business. But as the market has changed, the company has always invested ahead of the curve.

With expansion into strategic consulting and managed services, along with innovation in practices like cloud, security, and automation, AHEAD has become a key partner for countless enterprises in their path to digital business transformation.

AHEAD has continued to grow by joining forces with key companies, merging with Data Blue and acquiring Sovereign Systems in 2019, followed by acquisitions of RoundTower Technologies and Kovarus in 2020, subsequently creating a powerhouse combination with more than $2.1 billion in annual revenue and a footprint that stretches from coast to coast.

Navigate our milestones with the interactive timeline above.

The AHEAD Team show me every time that they care about our well-being and want to make sure we succeed on all fronts. I truly feel they are a partner and not a vendor.
