About Us

In   1986   Desktop   Micros   (renamed   DMi   Technology   Group)   was   started   as   a   PC   integration   company   in   the   home   of   Doug   and   Nina Sharp.   We   ran   a   small   but   well   connected   4   line   bulletin   board   system   that   tied   to   Fidonet   interest   groups   and   eventually   reached   the Internet   backbone   via   modems.   Time   marched   on   and   Internet   mail   and   connectivity   and   something   called   the   World   Wide   Web became    popular.    Networking    was    in    its    infancy    and    companies    like    Novell    and    Artisoft Lantastic ruled the networking scene. Can you say coax ?!?!? Times   changed   and   businesses   adapt.   We   were   a   Microsoft   shop   producing   clones   and   fast outgrew   being   in   the   home,   then   our   original   four   person   office,   then   our   rented   space   on Empire St. to finally move into our present location in Normal.  Windows   was   introduced   as   were   upstart   systems   from   IBM   and   other   providers.   We   built partnerships   with   Ameritech   Data   Services   and   Compaq   which   evolved   into   some   of   the   things we do today such as Hewlett Packard servers and systems and wireless technologies. In   2002   we   were   approached   to   purchased   Pro   Info   Consultants   a   local   company   we   had   been partnering    for    several    years    we    retained    their    highly    experienced    staff.    Some    of    Pro    Info Consultants   staff   memebers   have   been   working   on   IBM   midrange   systems   for   literally   decades.   This   part   of   the   business   focuses   on   the IBM   platform   and   custom   programming.   This   is   not   your   mother’s   IBM   any   more!   Cutting   edge   technologies   are   what   you   can   expect from   IBM   and   DMi   Technology   Group   these   days.   Many   of   our   IBM   customers   are   in   the   manufacturing   and   distribution   verticals However the robust IBM platform lends itself to a muriad of business models.  Midrange   IBM   Servers   (despite   what   some   would   have   you   believe)   has   great   value   far   beyond   "legacy".   The   most   stable   database platform   on   earth   might   just   be   DB2.   IBM   midrange   based   on   Power   processors   and   DB2   as   a   part   of   the   operating   system.   Web ,Windows   or   green   screen   with   heads   down   order   entry   are   common   place.   All   this   is   possible   with   no   DB   admin   or   internal   staffing. Midrange   is   l   very   cost   effective   to   run   enterprises   or   even   medium   businesses   on   with   less   overall   IT   cost.   To   find   out   more   about   our IBM Solutions click here.   Things   have   come   full   circle   and   terms   like   “virtual”   and   “cloud”   we   are   very   familiar   with   but   these   were   known   as   time   sharing   and service   bureaus   long   before   the   buzz   words   you   hear   now.   Internet   is   something   we   have   chosen   to   resell   via   large   international   ISP's such   as   Sprint.   We   offer   colocation,   cloud   services   and   managed   IT   all   based   on   our   own   best   of   breed   selections.   When   you   have   time, please   check   out   the   "Managed   Services"   link   under   services.   This   is   the   way   many   companies   are   able   to   ensure   uptime   and   stable systems without having large in-house staffs to manage everything. If   you   need   IT   (and   let’s   face   it....who   doesn’t   ?   ),   you   want   to   have   professionals   do   it   right   either   to   manage   that   entire   side   of   your business   or   simply   to   host   some   of   your   critical   services   .   We   want   to   be   that   your   IT   partner   at   whatever   level   fits   your   needs   and budget.  The lights are still on and we are here to help 28+ years strong.
