From Startup to Leading IT Managed Services Provider

Our History

Technology, when managed properly, can help businesses get and maintain a competitive advantage in their industry. When David E. Eisner founded Dataprise he understood this notion early on, even before the days of Wi-Fi, Cloud Computing and even Smartphones. Mr. Eisner knew that technology could be used to accelerate and grow any business and in a small apartment on March 14, 1995 Dataprise was born.

Dataprise was not always known as a ‘Managed Service Provider.’ During its inception, Mr. Eisner considered himself an IT consultant. As technology evolved and got more complex, MSPs (Managed Service Providers) were born in order to provide fully, or partially-outsourced IT support and and management.

Fast-forward twenty years, the MSP community is still evolving and morphing. Businesses that were once a player in the industry have either been acquired by larger companies, gotten smaller or gone out of business. In contrast, Dataprise has continued to expand with over 22+ years of consecutive growth which is a testament to the expertise of the people who work for Dataprise and the  professional service it offers it's customers.

For over two decades, Dataprise has remained dedicated to helping its clients win with IT and will continue to focus on helping businesses, large and small, succeed through their investments in information technology.
