According to the Urban Dictionary, RAWR means “I love you in Dinosaur." (right before he eats you!). It’s a funny way to name a company, but with 40 years of experience in the computer and communications industries, some of us actually are dinosaurs. But that’s a good thing, because that longevity means we actually like what we do, so it IS fair to say that we Love your Data! We understand the significance of any computer system, whether it’s just collecting information, a website processing $3,000 a day in transactions, or an enterprise system doing $50 million a day. We love this stuff and we are good at it. Give us a call and find out how we can help you grow your business and find stability in this fast moving world.
I can admit it, I spent years working in the mainframe computer industry. I've been a production control analyst, applications analyst, programmer analyst, systems analyst, a systems programmer, a project manager and both a Supervisor and Manager in the Production Services environment. Banking systems and ATM networks. Good times!
My conversion to the PC world began in 1984 when I started doing system support work for ATM and bank branch automation controllers that ran on the network. The newer IBM controllers used floppy disks, so all the control programs were created on PC's that were connected to shared storage on the mainframe. When I left the mainframe industry in 1990, I walked straight into my own product based business and began working with accounting systems, spreadsheets, databases, graphic design, phone systems and networks in support of those efforts.
My third business start-up was a little thing called Wondermat®. Those interlocking foam mats you (or your kids) played on were brought to you in large measure by us back in the day. Product design, marketing, production and a thousand other things went into making this business work. The computer skills of my past were essential to its success.
I started doing Website Development in 1995 for Wondermat® and wrote my first eCommerce shopping cart in 1996. Learned everything the hard way back then, but kept abreast of the latest technology and built long stable applications that have processed millions of dollars in transactions over the years.
I can't even tell you how many people I have helped set up Websites and development environments for over the years, but it's a lot! In 2013 I started this company, RawarData Technology, to do some consulting and agency work for clients and to let it be known that I am looking for interesting projects to get involved with, beyond my core business.
Okay, it's a joke, but who said no man is an Island?

I don't actually work alone! I run this business (and a few others), but I know and work with some of the smartest programmers, database, graphics and design people on the planet that comprise the best team of people I have worked with in a lifetime. Hardware and Network Engineers too!
