About-Akili

Akili (pronounced (uh • kē’ • lē) meaning “knowledge” in Swahili) is a business management and technology consulting firm founded in 1992. Our core purpose is to improve the business performance of our clients through the application of technology, people, and process.

Akili delivers solutions for Global 2000 companies and is focused on Industry solutions for Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Healthcare, Financial Services, Retail, Hi-Tech, Hospitality, Consumer Packaged Goods, Construction, and Telecom, among others. Akili’s consultants have functional expertise in the areas of Enterprise Performance Management, Analytics, ERP, and Business Process Management.  Akili’s technical expertise includes project and program management, solution architecture, technical architecture, application configuration, data management, and integration. Whether clients are looking for an on premise solution or a cloud based solution, Akili can deliver the best combination of technology and consulting to ensure our client’s business objectives are met.

Akili is results-oriented, client focused, and easy to work with. Akili’s long-standing client relationships speak to their expertise, client-focus, and results-oriented standards of excellence.

All of Akili’s consultants are full time employees of the firm, and collectively uniquely qualified to work on every aspect of an implementation from software selection, product installation, implementation, developing and delivering training, assisting in organizational change management, and continuing with application management services.

We understand that it takes more than technical skills to be successful.  Akili focuses on business needs as much as technical needs. Our projects are not deemed complete or successful until the stated business objectives are met.

We strive for continuous improvement by emphasizing the prevention of errors through “best practices” methodology, building in quality and improving processes. Fundamental to our business is the acceptance of full responsibility for meeting all client requirements. Quality is the responsibility of every employee and each share in the benefits derived from improved quality, efficient systems, and satisfied customers.  We have a 100% success rate of implementations. This is reinforced by our customer’s continued partnership on subsequent projects which speak volumes about our abilities.

A successful solution implementation requires you to bring a variety of skill sets to the table – and not just technical skills. While we are an IT services firm, we train our consultants in the business function of the products that we implement.

Akili is a professional services organization and in many ways our people are our product. We understand that our ability to consistently deliver world class solutions to our clients is wholly dependent on our ability to attract and retain world class team members.  Our vision is to create a work environment that gives our people the opportunity, encouragement, and recognition they need to truly excel at what they do.

It is only by building a great team that we can build a great company and it is only by building a great company that we can deliver the consistently high level of service that our clients have come to expect and to rely upon.

Akili always delivers because our people always deliver.  Akili is headquartered in Dallas, TX, with locations in Houston, TX and Denver, CO.  Our clients span the continental U.S.
