Gold and Bronze Accreditations
In 2014, Ironside became the first IBM partner to achieve three gold accreditations in the three major pillars of business analytics: IBM Cognos Business Intelligence, IBM SPSS Modeler, and IBM Cognos TM1. On top of that, we also achieved a bronze accreditation in IBM Cognos Incentive Compensation Management. We’re very proud to receive this recognition, as it proves something we’ve known all along: Ironside is unparalleled in our knowledge of these tools, and we’re eager to pass that wisdom on to our clients.

Number 546 on the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies List
At Ironside, our top priority is acceleration, both for our clients and ourselves. Being named as one of the top sixth of companies in the Inc. 5000 fastest-growing private US companies list for 2014 was a thrill for us. It’s proof positive that we’re continually building and bettering our organization to maximize the expertise areas we have and expand into the ones we want to serve. The end result? One of the most dynamic, agile, and responsive teams out there, ready to take on and conquer any challenge we face.
Boston Business Journal’s Pacesetters Select 70 Award
Ironside has stayed true to its roots in New England. Boston Business Journal counting us among the top 70 fastest-growing private companies Massachusetts means a great deal to us. Over the years, Ironside has consistently striven to embody the innovation and passion for the cutting edge to which our home state is so thoroughly committed, and being a Pacesetter brings us even more in alignment with this vision.
Number 20 on the Computerworld 100 Best Places to Work in IT 2014 List
One of the things Ironside realized early on is that growing is only half the battle. It’s growing with quality that really matters, and we’ve consistently pushed toward that goal by turning our company into a place where each employee is valued, respected, and intellectually challenged. Computerworld recognized this effort in 2014 and placed Ironside in the top 20 percent of their 100 Best Places to Work in IT list. This award motivates us to keep fine-tuning our excellent corporate culture and recognizing our amazing team members that work hard, play hard, and represent the best and brightest minds in our industry.
EY Entrepeneur of the Year 2014 Finalist
Part of becoming a game changing organization is having visionary leaders constantly push the envelope toward the most groundbreaking solutions. Ironside’s CEO Tim Kreytak is one of those leaders. In 2014, EY nominated Tim as a candidate for their Entrepreneur of the Year award and ultimately named him as one of their finalists. This nomination puts a spotlight on just how powerful Tim’s mission and message have been in spurring Ironside on to greater heights. His deep commitment to the company and our clients is something that each and every Ironside employee endeavors to emulate on a daily basis.
So What Do Ironside’s Accomplishments Mean?
As you can see, Ironside’s accomplishments brought home a lot of accolades last year, and we expect to continue this trend in 2015. In fact, we’re already off to a good start, having just been named as a finalist for IBM’s Beacon Award. It’s great to have some recognition, but what does it mean for you as a customer? The most important thing to take away is that whether it’s internal or external, Ironside is committed to excellence, and the business community is taking notice.
