Global Consulting Services, Inc. was established in 1998 as Global Computer Consulting Services, Inc., a Maryland based S corporation providing information technology support for commercial business requirements related to Y2K mitigation. Its founder, Mr. James Osborn, performed his first Y2K mitigation in 1988 using a “windowing” technique that would later become the standard for mitigating Y2K issues.

After witnessing the impact if sequestration and declining budgets on programs in the Intelligence Community, Mr. Osborn recognized a void in the availability of consultants with strong technical competencies and experience where low over-head costs would provide a high return on value to programs supporting mission critical systems. This view was shared by former Oracle engineers who have joined Mr. Osborn at Global.
