  • Big Data / Data Portability / Legacy Migration “Bridging the Old With New”

“In just over a year the U.S. Federal Government has mobilized considerable resources and opened numerous avenues to assist agencies in adopting cloud computing.  Whether migrating to the cloud from legacy IT platforms, considering security factors in choosing public, private, hybrid or community/federated cloud environments, or leveraging cost savings of cloud, CIOs and other IT decision-makers are quickly realizing the value of cloud.  As vendors we need to also understand that the greatest gains related to cloud computing are realized when it is approached as an ecosystem.”
