The Catalyst mission:

Catalyst is word that gets used frequently, but to mean something, a catalyst must induce change at the chemical level.  Surface level, appearance changes do not count. In enterprise technology, a catalyst is a trusted advisor, helping clients to transform their organization, architecture, and business.  We help people make good decisions.  We help companies emerge from the chemical disruption that is occurring both inside and outside their organization.
