With the constant influx of new technology, the modern business is forced to adapt to keep up with demand. Traditional company processes may be outdated, hindering gains in efficiency, and productivity, as well as leaving gaps in security. As businesses look to transform digitally, they must take an all-encompassing approach, incorporating cloud across all functions and segments of their business.
Enter Catapult, a modern digital solutions and services firm that uses technology to solve companies’ most unique challenges. Maintaining a cloud-first approach into each of its solutions, Catapult is helping organizations accelerate digital innovation at an unprecedented level.
The Growth Story
What began as two technical guys working out of their home office 25 years ago, has morphed into something truly remarkable. Catapult’s Digital Solutions Group and cloud services umbrella continues to grow with a dedicated team of experts in each solution area, giving Catapult a unique advantage in helping customers solve their toughest business problems.
A Journey Towards Success
As the landscape of digital business has taken a dramatic shift from traditional approaches to the world of the cloud, Catapult transformed its focus from IT solutions to a cloud-first services provider. Through this transformation, Catapult grew its Azure-based cloud services by 200%, and has become a leader in delivering Azure solutions to transform customers’ businesses.
Catapult is a 2017 Microsoft Partner of the Year Finalist in Cloud Productivity and was the 2016 Microsoft Partner of the Year in the United States. Year-over-year, Catapult is consistently named one of the Best Places to Work in various locations around the United States, Texas Monthly, and Glassdoor among others.

The biggest challenges Catapult faces is that IT and cloud technology is always changing. Being able to keep up with new technology, and adapting to new approaches is essential to stay competitive. Cloud continues to transform technology and change business needs, and so it is imperative that Catapult evolves along with it so that it can continue to address these constantly changing challenges.
Optimizing the Cloud Journey with Azure
As a leader in cloud services, Catapult helps companies leverage Azure to meet their business needs.
