Why Us?

Expertise. Intuition. Ingenuity.

ChiTek-i was founded by Mark Burgess, information physicist, principal Founder of CFEngine, and Emeritus Professor of Computer Science from the Metropolitan University of Oslo, known particularly for his work on Configuration Management, Promise Theory, as well as numerous books and publications.

Even the largest organizations struggle to keep abreast of the core principles behind new technologies. The result can be ad hoc project choices, driven by popular trends, and unmet expectations. Project plans need the guidance of systemic experience and an impartial eye on all of the moving parts, while paying attention to team chemistry, and the keeping of serviceable promises to all stakeholders.
