Why call it ITGrok?

The term “grok” first appeared in the 1961 Novel “Stranger In a Strange Land” by Robert Heinlein. It was used to describe the sensation of becoming one with the observed.

In the technology world, it’s a term that describes when someone fully and completely understands something in all its details and intricacies.

We thought the term was perfect in describing the value our Solution Design & Delivery team brings to customers across North America every day.
