As the old saying goes, "It's not what you know, but who you know," And as we found from our interview with inhouseIT founders, "The company with the most connected people wins."

They join an already stacked team of executives hailing from tech giants like Salesforce, IBM, and Dell EMC, among others.

ITPS, in contrast, typically serves commercial and K-12 education clients
