Cider Consulting

Helping business navigate in a mobile world.

Cider Consulting provides training, education and services to businesses in the Twin Cities to become more mobile and efficient. We specialize in Apple hardware, software, and services;; iOS and iPad/iPhone deployment including security; and JAM Pro MDM. Typical projects involve custom design service, collaborative working attitudes using both agile and iterative approaches to projects, expertise on policy, education and strategic planning.

Many technical problems are, in fact,
​not solved with technology.

We specialize in rebalancing existing technology by focusing on the job for which you have hired each component of your toolset. A purposeful re-examination of your company's existing tools, talent and partners can often simplify costs, magnify the value of your IT investment and open space to bring on board new tools that are better suited to today's business expectations. Also, we can help accelerate your transition from discrete release cycles and traditional IT management to continuous integration, cloud and hyper-converged infrastructure.

Let Cider Consulting help you guide your company to higher ground in an increasingly mobile world.
