You can also build powerful end-to-end business solutions by connecting Power BI across the entire Microsoft Power Platform, including Office 365 and Azure, to provide actionable insights that drive business results and innovation across your entire organization.


Manufacturing firms doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD) are required to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) is the regulation and the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is the framework developed to make sure federal contractors are compliant with the required cybersecurity practices.


Your infrastructure is the backbone of your operation. You need fast, reliable wired and wireless access. Any unplanned downtime has the potential to be catastrophic. Peters & Associates can assess your current infrastructure and work with you to bring it up-to-date and ready for whatever the future brings.
