About ISP Ltd.
Background and mission statement
The value a consultant brings to your business is influenced by education, experiences, skills, achievements, and beliefs. A bookworm may be helpful but uninteresting. A social comedian may be enjoyable but unproductive. A scientist without ethics may be productive but dangerous. A balanced blend is generally best for a serious project. The blend of these in my life includes:
ISP Ltd. is a family-owned consultancy started in 1986 by Angelo Babudro. Over the years we have employed people, facilities, and other resources only as required in order to keep the business cost-efficient, personal, and flexible. Most often Angelo works alone, but has led teams of up to 11 people in projects for clients around the globe.
Angelo Babudro always writes software to professional standards, testing thoroughly and making sure that the wording is clear and the product is pleasing to the eyes as well as ultimately useful in its intended purpose. There are times when a "quick fix" is the best solution, but often the software we write as engineers is used for longer than expected, so we believe in thorough design and documentation for any project of significance so that it will stand the test of time and earn people's respect.
"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ."
— Col iii:23-24
Our mission is to provide Linux server engineering and administration consulting to clients in Canada, the USA, and worldwide.
Since a young man, Angelo Babudro has had a very competitive spirit that wants to be the best and fastest in the world at what he does. He achieved near-world-record typing speed by the time he was 20, learned three programming languages in the 1970s when computers were only found in schools, took a programming post intended for a graduate student in his freshman year of university, and wrote software from his home office in the 1990s that the US government and enterprises in the USA and Canada relied upon for years.
As a family business, we pride ourselves not only on being qualified and adept, but also on frequently asking ourselves if we can do better (and challenging this to happen) and looking at whether we are staying on the path of moral and ethical propriety. Angelo is a member of the IEEE and adheres to the engineers' code of ethics. We endeavour to offer our clients high value in terms of the completed project and the relationship that develops during our time working together.
