Heartland IT Consulting 6 Degrees of Separation

Heartland is a networking company that’s business model can be explained via 6 degrees of separation. The challenge rests on the assumption that you can take anyone involved with Oracle technology and can link to Heartland within 6 steps or fewer. With Heartland at the center, we are the constant within each circle of professionals related to Oracle technology. 1 degree of separation are existing customers/consultants, 2nd degree connections are referrals of our customers/consultants, and the list goes on all the way to 6 degrees of separation creating a Heartland number, not a BACON number. The human algorithm enables each person to extend their network of connections, leveraging Heartland’s experience, reputation, history to create more personal human connections.
