Expera "helped us to understand the upgrade process and expanded our knowledge in many areas, including application and hardware compatibility testing, image engineering, change management, and deployment strategy.

He was able to assist us in identifying problem areas ahead of time instead of "fire fighting." He was instrumental in our success."
"[CEO] Krishnan Iyer is one of those unusual people combining high intelligence, encyclopaedic product knowledge, and great interpersonal skills. I've encountered one or two other people with that combination, and like them Krishnan brings those skills and abilities to bear in providing business solutions that have greater immediate and measurable results than just a real smart guy with great skill set is able to achieve. This is a strongly worded endorsement, of a type I've written only once before. But he's only the second guy I've ever met that deserves it."

De Pasque praises Expera for providing "an excellent document outlining where we are, where we want to be, and how to get there.

TrueBlue Inc. was recommended Expera through Microsoft, and "were very pleased." The consultant “helped us do a self-assessment of our Enterprise security using the Core Infrastructure Optimization framework, [which] covered maturity assessments in End Point Protection, Edge Protection, Messaging Security, Collaboration Security and Information protection within our enterprise." The Expera consultant "also provided an IT Security roadmap showing how we might optimize our security infrastructure in phases. He was very easy to work with, knew his stuff, and didn't try to push any particular products or services. He provided questionnaires for us to fill out, then conducted numerous interviews, and THEN he produced quality results VERY quickly thereafter. He never let the project lag."
"As a consulting partner, [Expera CEO] Krishnan consistently delivers great results and demonstrates an expertise and understanding of both business and technical drivers. I have absolute faith in Krishnan's ability to identify and solve complex problems and deliver high value consulting services. He easily develops a rapport with people, communicating at the right level for the right audience with a personal flair that is too often missing in technology services."
Expera "worked with the Information Security team at PACCAR to develop a maturity assessment for our Information Security Capabilities. [The consultant] came to the engagement with solid information and proven methodologies that made it easy to get involved and moving towards a valued solution. [He] was flexible in working with the different operational teams and effective in communication to both the technical and management teams in explaining the results of the assessment. The roadmap offered… provided a strong foundation for the management of our security programs."

I look forward to working with Krishnan in the future."
