About CBT

Mission Statement

CBT is a premier, woman-owned Domain Expert Integrator breaking the mold of traditional technology solution design. Our digital transformation strategies bridge the gap between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) to provide business outcomes beneficial across the entirety of an organization. From the CIO to the COO, to Digital Transformation Leadership and everyone in between, we deliver solutions that unite these unique business cultures for collective success in today’s data-driven economy.

At CBT, we take our tagline to heart, to deliver Technology with a Human Touch. We put people at the center of our processes, products, and technology solutions. With the focus areas of Internet of Things (IoT), IT/OT Convergence, and High-Performance Computing (HPC) & Analytics we’re ready to take your innovation initiatives from ideas to execution.


We believe in nothing less than excellence. Our customers deserve service from the best company, people, and community resources available. See our Achievements Page ▶

We handpick our people — from our top-level enterprise engineers to our entry-level associates.

That’s because we at CBT know that before we can have a successful relationship with you, the customer, we must have a successful relationship with our employees. Our team is not only the best-qualified team in the industry but also the best to work with.
