For more than 22 years, Paragon has listened to the challenges faced by IT executives and has engineered services to help clients navigate through change and challenge.

Staffing: In a tight IT labor market with an ever-increasing skills gap, the ability to find, attract, engage and deliver IT talent quickly is critical to an organization’s success. Paragon’s core business is quickly matching the right talent at just the right time.

Project Services: When there’s not enough time or resources to confidently execute on strategic initiatives, outsourcing to a trusted partner – whether on-site, off-site or off-shore – is not just the best option but often the only option to quickly advance a strategy.

Using a consultative approach and leveraging Paragon’s strategic partners in South America and India, Paragon provides access to hundreds of additional talented and trusted IT professionals across a wide range of technologies and technology hubs.

Dedicated Service Solutions: Paragon’s business solution reduces the burden of the client by delivering IT resources more efficiently – saving time and money – while leveraging the best available talent in the market.

With limited resources and a growing skills gap, this is often the best solution for clients to obtain the talent they desire to execute on strategic initiatives.

Business Intelligence & Software Solutions: Managing the data flowing through an organization- creating insights from it and hiring for it – are monumental tasks for even the largest of corporations.

Putting off a clear data strategy and action plan will inevitably lead to gaps that competitors will fill. Paragon provides business analytics consulting, strategy and software solutions to clients.


Clients of all sizes and varying industries look to Paragon to help drive innovation through information technology. From finding the right talent to building strategies on how to implement technologies and migrate data, Paragon helps businesses find the tools needed to solve complex problems.
