A Look Inside
The leadership at Relus is committed to Creating Options in IT. We are united in our effort to offer products and services that are designed to help IT organizations maximize the life of their current-state IT environment, while at the same time empowering and enabling them to realize the many benefits of platform, infrastructure and applications as a service.
Leveraging many years of experience in multiple fields of technology has allowed the executives of Relus to put together a message that is relevant and timely for today’s technology leaders. We help extend the life of existing environments while planning for the future by focusing on three main areas: Infrastructure, Cloud and People.
From the start, Relus Technologies was founded on three basic principles: 1) Be Focused on the Customer 2) Be the best place to work 3) Be charitable. We understand that if we can stick to our principles and deliver an incredible customer experience while keeping our employees happy and motivated, we will be profitable.
Our mindset is to support our employees with an environment that allows them to learn, grow and thrive. We give our employees the chance to do meaningful work, not only for our clients, but for their colleagues, themselves and for their community as a whole.

Jay Duff, Director of Big Data
As the resident CIO and Big Data Specialist, Jay joined Relus with an abundance of real world IT experience. Jay started off as a plant engineer at General Motors and eventually worked his way from electrical engineering into a variety of IT roles supporting application, infrastructure and operations teams. Prior to Relus, Jay was CIO of L2C, Inc. where he quickly organized disparate data sources around a central data dictionary to be used across multiple vendors, customers, and predictive models using Avro and RDBMS. After L2C’s acquisition by TransUnion in 2014, Jay chose to remain in Atlanta rather than take a corporate relocation. Jay is an experienced technology leader adept at unlocking the value of data and analytics using Big Data Technologies on local infrastructure and cloud (Amazon AWS) platforms. With extensive hands on experience mining and analyzing structured and unstructured data, Jay has built predictive modeling and constructed social networks in organizations of all shapes and sizes. Jay is an avid outdoor enthusiast and loves supporting all things ATL. You can usually find him walking or riding a bike on the beltline.
Usually, business leaders believe increasing revenues enable a company to give back to the community and become a great place to work.
We have chosen to flip this thinking. Helping our community has become an integral part of our Relus core values. At Relus Technologies, we take every opportunity to involve ourselves in outreach programs and volunteer initiatives all throughout the city of Atlanta.
