The Story Behind our Name

Our story began, surprisingly, not with the Three Little Pigs, but with three friends from Omaha. The House of Brick team was originally assembled as a performance and integration team. We adopted the name “Product Integration Group”, which rolled up nicely to PIG. Our executive management at the time was less than comfortable with PIG for a prominent, customer-facing team. The name, however, survived a couple of attempts by management to change it. Customers loved it in our observation. When we went independent in 1998, we failed at coming up with a professional sounding name that integrated “pig”. We finally came up with “House of Brick”, invoking the three little pigs fairy tale. The name held onto our team pride and brought it into our new organization. “House of Brick” also happens to convey the stability and reliability of the system stacks we have architected or reviewed.brickhouse
