Rochester, New York is many things, but if you were to ask folks to describe the city, the phrase tech hub might not be at the top of the list. While that may be the perception, it’s far from reality. Rochester’s workforce is highly educated, with the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) continuously driving innovation in manufacturing, energy, optics, photonics, and imaging.

Rochester is home to LPA, A Converge Company. LPA, a consulting and professional services firm built on client satisfaction and deep expertise in analytics, was acquired by Converge Technology Solutions in October 2021. With more than 20 years of experience and hundreds of satisfied clients, LPA offers a range of services and solutions for analytics, data science, artificial intelligence, financial performance management, data governance, data integration, location analytics, and data sets.

However, LPA isn’t the only company to call Rochester home. Rochester is the birthplace and home to iconic companies like Eastman Kodak, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb, Wegmans, Paychex, Western Union, French’s, and Constellation Brands which established the region as a center for science and technology, as well as research and development. The city is also home to the University of Rochester, the Rochester Institute of Technology, and the Eastman School of Music.

At LPA, A Converge Company, our people are our strength. With some of the deepest skills in the analytics industry today, we pride ourselves on our dedicated teams and many loyal clients in Rochester and all across North America. Surrounded by individuals committed to enhancing the technology industry, our consultants strive to understand your unique needs, your business environment, and your culture.

So, book your next trip to Rochester, New York! We’d love to show you around and take you out for a Rochester signature dish, the “garbage plate.” I have it on good authority that Nick Tahou’s is the best in town, complete with home fries, macaroni salad, baked beans, or French fries, topped with a choice of meats and dressed with spicy mustard, chopped onions, and hot sauce. Legend has it that this dish is the perfect hangover cure.

As the third largest metropolitan area in the state of New York and the 79th largest city in the United States, Rochester is full of beautiful landscapes, creative visions, and innovative solutions.
