Our Company

Virtual Clarity is a Technology Consultancy business, with offices in the USA and Europe. Business leaders know that transforming I.T. into a Service is a shift that needs to happen.  But many don't know how to get there.  Getting our customers there simply, is simply all we do. We untangle their I.T., taking it from complex legacy, to a clear, cloud infrastructure, that will help make them and their business clean, lean and ready for a nimble future.

We not only help customers refine their technology vision, but also help them sell it to the rest of their company, so that everyone can see the need for change, and most importantly, get excited about it.  In fact, our remit goes beyond advisory services into the realms of getting things done.  We are active participants in the task of creating I.T. as a Service.

If I.T. is keeping customers awake, it's not working.  Fundamental change can feel like stepping into the abyss.  We know that CIOs and CTOs already have plenty of things keeping them awake at night - no one needs more!  Thankfully, the benefits of moving to ITaaS far outweigh any reasons to stay as they are, and our current clients are sleeping all the better for making that move. 


Our Culture

We are an entrepreneurial business, where almost everyone comes into contact with the customer, at some point.  We are informal unless required to be otherwise, by our customers, where, much of the time, we work on-site.

We work with game changers, believers and visionaries.  We give a damn; not everyone thinks it’s cool to care, but we do.  We care about our customers and about our people.  We’re obsessed with return on energy and deliver return on investment.  We are a collective of change makers and focused thinkers; we actually make it happen.

The VC tone is SMART, RELEVANT & FUN.  We are actively NOT corporate.  Our intention is to offer all our people opportunities to produce, learn and teach, as well as a platform for taking their career to the next stage.
