CHICAGO, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Solstice Mobile, the country's leading digital innovation and mobile solutions boutique, announced that it was ranked in Inc Magazine's list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private US companies for the fifth consecutive year. This key corporate milestone comes on the heels of a host of other significant awards including Fortune's Inner City 100, Crain's Top 15 Job Creators and Built In's 6 Best Companies For New Developers.  The firm's Founder and CEO, J Schwan, was also recently named a 2014 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Midwest Finalist and included in the Techweek 100 list for the second straight year.

This exciting Inc. 5000 ranking can be contributed to a 129% increase in revenue from 2011 to 2013, and continued momentum through 2014 with the addition of several new blue chip, global Fortune 500 clients across Financial Services, Manufacturing, Agriculture and CPG sectors. Solstice has also increased its employee headcount by 20% in the past year and is quickly populating their new 31,000 square foot Chicago innovation center. With this new space, Solstice recently announced their newest service offering: R&D-as-a-Service. By working with many industry leading clients as a digital R&D extension, the firm practices rapid experimentation with new business models by leveraging Mobile, Wearables, the Internet of Things, Sensor Connected Ecosystems and Big Data technologies.

"Our holistic offering as both an innovation consultancy and full-lifecycle digital product development firm, combined with our next generation delivery model based on Lean UX and Agile principles, provides our clients the foresight and agility to be 'first' in their respective industries," noted J Schwan, Founder and CEO of Solstice Mobile.

In the past year, Solstice has also expanded their North American footprint with three additional regional offices in New York, Madison and Houston. Solstice is also preparing for the launch of their first international delivery center in Buenos Aires, Argentina this fall.

Solstice has managed to achieve this organic growth without taking on any outside capital investment. Solstice CFO, Dan Kardatzke commented, "Solstice has been able to achieve phenomenal growth due to our consistent successful delivery and high client retention rate. 85% of Solstice revenue can be attributed to existing client relationships, on top of the firm experiencing rapid double-digit year over year growth."

Solstice's secret sauce comes in the form of patented proprietary tools and a next generation technology delivery model.  "Our success is attributed to three factors: the creativity and passion of our people, the quality-enforcing technologies integrated into our AppLauncher DevOps platform and the transparency and client-collaboration that is ingrained in our Agile delivery model," said Solstice COO Greg Cullen.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
