Our Story & History

Success through promises fulfilled.

Every journey starts with a first step

Every journey starts with a single step and for Connectria, that step happened to be with the world’s largest bank, Deutsche Bank. Followed quickly by our second client, IBM. Since then, we have added over 1,000 clients worldwide. For over 20 years each customer, large or small, has relied on Connectria to deliver on promises made to make it easy to do business with us through flexible terms, scalable solutions and straight-forward pricing. Join us on our journey.

At Connectria, we don’t just say we can act as an extension of your IT team, we deliver on it. That’s because our structured methodology is complete with pre-sales architects and post sales implementation team members involved upfront in the presales process, along with dedicated engineering resources that remain throughout a customer’s lifecycle.
