Founded on February 20, 1998, Cascades Technologies, inc. (d/b/a "CTI") grew from the dreams of Alfredo Casta, an enterprising young intern at the Department of Labor. CTI has since blossomed into a successful and innovative IT company. Our mission is "to help our clients succeed by fully understanding their mission and challenges, and applying technology, experience, and knowledge to deliver results." Today, CTI continues to grow under the expert guidance and care of its President, Daniel Torres.

Under the stewardship of Mr. Torres, CTI has become a Lean and Agile organization. One of our clients recently proclaimed that, "CTI is the little engine that could." We feel that this exemplifies our dedication and determination to achieve our clients' missions and goals in a way that delivers big firm reliability and results at a little firm price.

In 2009, CTI achieved its first CMMI Level 2 for Services rating. CMMI is an internationally recognized and acclaimed model that is used for assessing and improving software development and systems engineering capabilities. When properly applied, the model ensures that projects are accurately defined, managed, and implemented, thereby increasing the likelihood that requirements are met and goals are achieved within established timelines and budgets. CTI again achieved CMMI Level 2 for Services certification in early 2018.
