JULY 7, 2021 (Windsor, Ontario, Canada) – As the founding auditing firm that has performed the most CSIA audits around the world, we can confirm that DataRealm Inc. has passed the audit requirements established by the Control Systems Integrator Association.
Don Roberts, the Exotek Auditor, commented, “This was DataRealm’s first re-audit and their improvements were evident. They recognize that an integrator’s business is forever changing and needing to grow to advance. The re-certification process ensures that they do not take their eye off the ball as there is always room for improvement. To me, that is very sound reasoning.”
Carmelo Bertuccio, the Sales & Operations Director at DataRealm, said “Exotek has a wealth of experience that is invaluable to any firm. Exotek provided guidance based on their experience with many firms on identifying, approaching, and executing business areas within their organizations.”
DataRealm has built a reputation for solving complex engineering problems. DataRealm engineers execute highly demanding turnkey productivity solutions for industry leaders. With roots in real-time manufacturing data collection and controls engineering, DataRealm has continually evolved its skillset to upgrade entire facilities and control systems.
DataRealm handles every point in the systems integration process, from design to deployment, providing support throughout and after the project. DataRealm offers controls engineering, automation information systems, and software development solutions for maximum efficiency and productivity.
Exotek LLC formed in 1997 in response to a request made by a major automation equipment manufacturer to help them grow and manage their systems integration channel and because integrators wanted management assistance. Our team recognized the link between the process knowledge, value-added services of the engineering systems integrator, and the success of the automation vendors. The automation equipment vendors also recognized the necessity of the integration industry to grow with increased industry standards and professionalism. Exotek was the first to provide industry-focused tools, processes, and knowledge to help make this happen.
The Control System Integrators Association is a global trade association dedicated to advancing the control system integration industry. CSIA has over 500 member companies in 35 countries. Since 1994, CSIA has helped member companies improve their business skills, provided a forum to share industry expertise, and promoted the benefits of hiring certified control system integrators.
