2013 Overview of Scalar Decisions. Scalar Decisions is the Canadian leader in delivering innovative IT solutions focused on the data centre. Our practice focus is around virtualization & cloud, data management, networks and security. Our deliverables are built upon designing world class systems for our clients, deployment through services, validation of those designs and finally the ongoing monitoring and management of those systems. Recognized on the PROFIT list of the fastest-growing companies in Canada for the last four years (since we became eligible in year 5 of our business). In 2013, we were 94 on the overall list, but 15 within the IT industry, and one of the highest-revenue companies overall.

Canadian company with nationwide presence

Number 15 on the CDN List of Top 100 Solution Providers

Also named #46 on Branham300 of Canada’s leading ICT companies

We have a deep technical bench, we are not a call centre shipping product, we position ourselves as an extension of your business, and have the team in place to back this up

Though Scalar is in its 10th fiscal year, our founders have been doing this since 1990 when they were running Enterprise Technology Group (ETG). Since then that team has delivered over $1BN in mission-critical infrastructure.

Core infrastructure is our background, our experience, and the primary focus of what we do – it underpins our business.

As infrastructure has changed with the industry to be spread across public, private, hybrid etc, our customer needs have changed, and therefore so does our portfolio and focus. Today, we focus on building core infrastructure and then assisting our clients in securing it, ensuring it is running well (performance), and managing it (control).

Though core infrastructure is the delivery vehicle for all applications, we do not deal at the application layer – We deal with security, performance, and control only as they relate to core infrastructure. This focus allows us to be the very best at what we do.

We answer the questions:

Core Infrastructure – How to Build It?
Security – How to secure it?
Performance – How is it running?
Control – How to manage it?
