Clipper Group, Inc., The

The Clipper Group Logo


We are technology acquisition consultants, strategic advisors, and Internet publishers on enterprise-class information technology and infrastructure.  We specialize in large servers (including Mainframes, Linux, UNIX, and Windows); enterprise storage solutions (including SAN, NAS, virtualization, tape, and storage appliances); and enterprise software (applications, database management systems, and middleware). In the last two years, about 50% of our business has been related to storage, storage networks, and storage-related software.

We are independent consultants and do not sell information technology products (hardware, software, etc.). We serve two client sets, to the betterment of both:

  • Helping mid-sized and large enterprises make the best information technology procurement decisions, in terms of identified business objectives, by focusing on each client’s specific situation and critical business requirements
  • Helping information technology vendors resolve strategic product and marketing issues by better understanding the business needs of the marketplace
