About Us

We founded Dega Systems in 2001 to provide stress free managed IT services for nonprofits and forprofit companies alike. As business owners ourselves, we know how important technology is to the viability and longevity of all organizations. (We’re not just saying that because we work in tech…) AND, we’re passionate about helping those whose job and mission is to change the world for the better. We’re not only invested in helping you succeed but in your vision of a better society 

After all, change is hard enough. When you add disorganized, vulnerable IT systems and processes to the mixthe overwhelm is real. Our goal is to help you reduce your IT stress and distractions so all your energy and resources can go towards doing your best work.  

Lastly, we’re proud to be Minority/Women-owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) certified and to serve the New York/New Jersey region and beyond.
