PLATINUM's mission, as stated in their corporate literature, is to provide software products and consulting services that help Global 10,000 companies manage and improve their IT infrastructure which supports an organization's key processes and consists of data, systems and applications. At PLATINUM, this mission statement is not merely a collection of words crafted by a talented public relations guru to project a positive image for the company. At PLATINUM, it is the driving force of the confederation led by Filipowski.

Filipowski has assembled this confederation through a series of strategic acquisitions--acquisitions that Filipowski has engineered to obtain technology as well as talent. Throughout the IT industry, acquisitions have been the hot news as evidenced by recent major acquisitions and mergers such as Compaq/Tandem, Arbor/Hyperion, Hummingbird/Andyne, Sybase/Intellidex, PeopleSoft/Intrepid and, of course, PLATINUM's acquisition of Logic Works.
