OneDMC: Where Bigger Meets Better

OneDMC: Where Bigger Meets Better

In 2015, DMC opened new offices in Houston, Texas, and New York City, expanding our team from three to five locations. Also in 2015, we paid two random people to write and perform rap songs about us. These seemingly unrelated events have an important common thread: OneDMC. So what does "OneDMC" mean? The term originates from first-time visitors to our offices, who love to ask us if we have any relation to the rap group Run DMC. The idea has really grown on us, though, so the term...

One DMC Raps

One DMC Raps

Since opening in 1996, many clever people have heard our company name and asked whether we're anything like Run-DMC. We're not, but we are One DMC. Every so often, DMC selects a theme song to highlight current goals or accomplishments. Themes have ranged from tough economic times ("Riding the Storm Out") to a focus on expansion ("Right Now"). Along with our recent expansion to five cities, we've experienced ongoing growth and development as a company. These ...

DMC Passes CSIA Recertification

DMC passed its third CSIA audit this month with flying colors. As a member of the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA), DMC is required to undergo a third party audit once every three years to maintain certification. The CSIA audit consists of 79 different criteria taken from the CSIA Best Practices & Benchmarks manual.  In the course of our audit preparation, DMC's leadership team and many senior engineers re-examined current processes and best practices, not only to pa...

DMC Turns Eighteen

DMC Turns Eighteen

It's official! DMC is now legal to vote, join the military, and gamble - not that we are really planning to do any of these things, but all the same it's an exciting and transitory time in the life of DMC. Last year, on the edge of seventeen, we opened our Boston office on the east coast. Over a year later, the Boston office is growing rapidly with 4 new employees, its own holiday party, grand opening party and a host of activity fund events, including heading out to a shooting range....

Let's See How Far DMC Has Come

You may or may not be aware that DMC occasionally designates a theme song to mark company milestones. Back in 2009, "Riding the Storm Out" was a nod to overcoming the tough economic climate. In 2011, we decided that the time was "Right Now" for expanding our business. After a great period of growth, two office expansions, and the opening of our Boston location we decided that it's time for a new theme song in 2013. We crowdsourced plenty of suggestions that didn't ...

DMC on the Edge of Seventeen

This week marks DMC's 17th anniversary! While we're not exactly legal to vote or drink yet, we have experienced a lot of exciting developments since our Sweet Sixteen and we're definitely another year older and wiser. DMC has continued to grow in the past year, and like many 17-year-olds we've expanded out of our home base to a new city. The opening of our Boston office has been a milestone for DMC and we're excited for the new challenges and opportunities that await us on...

Getting Young Kids Interested in Technology

Getting Young Kids Interested in Technology

I'm always trying to get my daughters, ages 8 & 5, interested in what we do here at DMC. It's a challenge because I have a hard enough time explaining what DMC does to someone I meet at a cocktail party, never mind a couple of young kids. However, I recently had two great experiences with them that actually piqued their interest. The first was a trip to Legoland in Carlsbad, California. In addition to Miniland USA, Land of Adventure and other fun rides, there also is a Lego Factory T...

"Destination DMC" Video Guides You to DMC's Office

DMC has been creating a video series to describe who we are and what we do. In addition to understanding the work we do, we thought it would be helpful if people understood how to travel to our office. Despite our web directions, Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, MapQuest, and the infallible Siri, visitors would still have trouble getting to our office every once in a while.   We wanted to create a helpful and instructive video, and we hope we've accomplished that,...

On May 3, 2012 DMC held a Tres de Mayo party for our customers, vendors, and friends. The 3-themed event was a fun way to enjoy an evening in our recently expanded office space.
