Why Austin Berkeley?

We think that an effective IT partner should provide more than expert advice and assistance. We strive to adopt your goals, your concerns, and your constraints so that we can most effectively deliver the right solution on time and on budget.

Austin Berkeley was founded in 2010 with a focus on providing pragmatic IT consulting services. Our founder, Mike Brower, has been involved in IT, consulting, and software since 1987 — most recently as Managing Principal for IT Consultancy LiquidHub — and has seen what works and what doesn't work. At LiquidHub, First Consulting Group (now CSC), Sungard Asset Management Systems, and Shared Medical (now Cerner), Mike has held positions including Management Consultant, Life Sciences Practice Manager, PMO Lead, Chief Architect, Sales Exec, Data Management Practice Manager, Tech Lead, Project Manager, Business Analyst, Public Sector Practice Lead, and Software Developer.

This diverse experience, along with a motivation toward crafting simple and novel solutions, has spawned a uniquely effective IT Consulting Partner: Austin Berkeley.



We care about what we do, inside and outside the office. Austin Berkeley is committed to giving back to its community, investing a percentage of net revenues in charitable endeavors. We have a strong commitment to corporate citizenship, and we encourage our associates to become involved with, and make a difference through, a variety of community and environmental initiatives.
