TechWise started over 22 years ago as an IT training and software consulting company. Since then, it has grown and diversified into a multi-national government, military, and business consulting and services organization with headquarters in both the United States and the United Arab Emirates.
TechWise’s ability to proactively adapt to changing environments and needs, while maintaining its focus on technology and systems-based solutions has garnered the company strong revenue growth and multiple industry and leadership awards. Since its original charter, TechWise has expanded its core competencies to include Strategic analysis; Doctrine and policy; training, exercises and operational support; and staff augmentation for military and government clients, to name a few.
