The Pinnacle Solutions Story

  • Pinnacle Solutions, Inc. Founded.
    Formed in 1996 by founder and President DJ Penix, Pinnacle Solutions adopted the SAS® system, one of the most prominent analytic and reporting tools since the late 1970s, as the primary programming language for development of custom analytic applications. Pinnacle Solutions started in the life sciences market. The earliest projects delivered by the company’s consultants involved development of SAS®-based applications for clinical trials data analysis and reporting at Eli Lilly and Company. Pinnacle Solutions also entered the manufacturing sector, creating a custom SAS® Internet-based Statistical Process Control application for manufacturing process improvement at medical device company Roche Diagnostics.

Veteran statisticians were added to the Pinnacle Solutions team to help clients interpret data and to ensure that SAS® applications incorporated sound analysis techniques. In 2001, Pinnacle Solutions launched the Solutions Development Center at 1 N Meridian St, Indianapolis, IN 46204.
