About Derive Technologies

Derive Technologies, was founded in 2000 through the combination of two long-standing technology firms dating back as far as 1986; and incorporated as “Derive Technologies” in the beginning of 2001. Derive's team -- all of them already long-time collaborators at the time of the company's official founding -- continue to design and deliver progressive business-technology solutions that meet the challenges of New York Metro Area, national, and global enterprises, with a focus on on-going cost reduction. Starting as a local system integrator, Derive grew to become a value-added enterprise reseller (VAR), and, now, a recognized national and international IT business consultancy.

Our practice areas surround core infrastructure and data centers, cloud computing (encompassing full cloud modernization, hybrid cloud, on-demand cloud services, private cloud, and Internet-of-Things (IoT) solutions), virtualization, big data (and other data modeling and management paradigms), collaboration, mobility, enterprise security, networking, IT purchasing, integration and support (including contract and managed services), and comprehensive configuration and staging services. The principal vertical markets that we serve — in which we have deep business and technical competencies — are healthcare, financial services, government and the public sector (state, local and national), and professional services.

Derive's solution portfolio has been developed in concert with global-leading strategic alliance partners, including Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), HP, Inc., Microsoft, Cisco, Nutanix, Citrix, Apple, VMware, Lenovo and others, including industry-specific providers.
