“The EDI team has demonstrated their ability to work collaboratively with Parkview by allowing us to leverage their internal experience with the best practice solutions that EDI brings to the table.

“We contracted with EDI to do a complete data center assessment of our 8-year old data center. I would give them an A on all three dimensions of importance to us: 1. Competence – They have expertise and wisdom in all aspects of data center design, analysis, build, and maintenance. 2. Value – They provided great analysis at a reasonable cost. 3. Relationship – The personalities were great to work with, from the executive management to each area expert. I would highly recommend EDI to any data center director.”
– Rich Rhodes, IT Development Project Director, Sidra Medical and Research Center, Doha, Qatar
“Being a true Greenfield hospital, no staff, no facility, and being located in the Middle East, we were hard pressed to review and respond to the numerous design documents that were submitted to our IT Department. EDI provided us the expertise we needed to turn around those documents and respond to the contractor in a timely manner. We continue to use EDI as subject matter experts and are very pleased with their support and would recommend them highly to any institution that is in need of their services.”
