Not long ago, hosting in-house systems required massive capital investments. They needed to be able to support business requirements in terms of availability, performance, security, and overall flexibility. Many companies were unable to access world class offerings in these areas, and those that did gain access paid far too much for it. All this has now changed.
Blue Spurs embraces the cloud in all our solutions. We utilize Amazon Web Services (AWS) among other technologies for our customers. AWS is the market leader in providing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and we are committed to delivering exceptional customer value in utilizing these services.
Successfully moving systems to the cloud requires careful planning and benefits from experience. We can assist in conducting a detailed needs analysis, and then formulate a customized cloud strategy that will focus on creating business value while establishing efficiency.
The core of our service offering is providing state of the art software solutions. These solutions vary greatly and every customer provides a unique challenge.
This may entail trying to move a business at a pace that their current technology platform won’t allow or extending current offerings to mobile devices. One size does not fit all, but through our extensive experience with a multitude of technologies and platforms we have solved countless problems with innovative solutions.
We are mature in our approach having combined an agile framework with industry best practices for software development. We cover all aspects including project management, analysis, user interface design, architecture, development, testing, support, and hosting.

Blue Spurs was created by Mike LeBlanc in 2012 to help companies accelerate reaching their business goals through the use of innovative technology solutions. Having been in the industry for over 20 years, he realized the potential of the Internet early on. Mike was one of the first Java Certified Developers in Canada and has been involved in Internet systems development since the early '90s having implemented dozens of mission critical web-based systems.
Always both business and technology focused, he co-founded icGlobal in 1998. This was an award winning LMS provider. He sold it to SmartForce (Now Skillsoft) in 2001 which at the time was the largest eLearning provider in the world. He also co-founded Ensemble Collaboration which developed enterprise collaboration solutions which sold to Global Mentoring in 2006. Recently he led the technology division of Chalk Media and built a team of over 50 technology professionals. He also spearheaded the development of a mobile based content publishing platform. Chalk was sold to Research in Motion in 2009. While at RIM Mike led numerous product development teams across North America including BlackBerry App World, EBay, BlackBerry News, and Chalk Pushcast. He left in 2012 to start Blue Spurs.
