Booz Allen Hamilton is an American management and information technology consulting firm. They are headquartered in McLean, Virginia, and have 80 offices around the globe. Their primary focus is to provide consulting, analysis and engineering services to public and private sector organizations and nonprofits.
The company was founded in 1914, in Evanston, Illinois, by Edwin G. Booz through the Business Research Service. He created this service based on his own theory that companies could be more successful if they used people outside their organizations for advice. His service attracted a number of clients, and Booz Allen Hamilton has made itself an indispensable advisor to the US federal government, with regards to IT strategy and integration within numerous departments and agencies. Over three decades, the company has gone through many name changes and business models.
They are a long-term partner that works alongside clients, offering expert, objective advice to help solve their most important and complex problems. They approach management and technology consulting by using domain expertise and strong capabilities in strategy, and organization, analytics, technology and operations. By leveraging both, Booz Allen anticipates, identifies and addresses our clients’ specific needs while looking for smart applications of our management and technology consulting solutions in the future.
