Our Name & The Pigs

We get asked a lot – What’s the story behind our name and the pigs? The explanation is quite simple. 

Technology investments are fundamentally meant to add value and improve your bottom line directly or indirectly by improving efficiencies, eliminating redundancies, and ultimately helping your organization accomplish its business goals more quickly. Attaining a positive return on that investment requires a combination of selecting the right technology and applying expertise to meld that technology to your business. Too many organizations purchase myriad new technologies but fail to capitalize on the investment due to a lack of expertise in the technologies. This approach results in wasteful technology projects and gradually empties their piggy banks rather than filling them. As software architects, we’ve always found irony in this situation. That’s the origin of the name and the pigs. Then…the pig just took on a life of its own.

We’ve Been Making Pigs Fly Since 2016

Organizations invest in the Salesforce and MuleSoft platforms because of their speed-to-market, low TCO, and ability to let them focus on the business scenarios that are important. However, without melding them into your business processes and utilizing best practices for each platform, you’ll only scratch the surface of the platforms’ full potential and won’t extract the maximum business value these world-class platforms are capable of providing.

Green Irony was founded in 2016 because we believe in the power of Salesforce and MuleSoft solutions for fueling large-scale, impactful digital transformation efforts capable of rapidly moving the needle for your business. Our mission is to help our clients maximize their technology investments.
