We help enterprise organizations transform into the cloud era.
As companies move from hosting their own equipment and information in data centers to a cloud model, our talented staff helps enable, advise, and deliver an operating model to make the transition easier.
In 2011, when AWS began to emerge as a pioneer in the cloud computing space, it all changed for Jeff Eiben.
The niche missing in the market, cloud computing was an underutilized but high-level, affordable solution for clients. When his current IT job’s processes and culture acted as barriers to ever adopting the emerging technology, Jeff made the risky decision to leave his job and start River Point Technology.
“I felt like the opportunity was there to start a business to help customers move through a critical inflection point of technology.”
