Information Concept launches Cloud Computing Practice

Information Concepts is pleased to
announce the formation of its Cloud Computing practice.


Customers who take advantage of this offering will lower their operational
costs by leveraging large computing resources from Google and other providers
to deploy and run web applications. Solutions will offer instant scalability
to unlimited users with no upfront hardware or licensing costs.


"This is the next major paradigm shift in architecting custom software
solutions," said Wayne Beekman, Co-founder of Information Concepts, "By
launching this practice, we are positioning ourselves to be the go-to firm for
developing applications that use Cloud Computing offerings from Google,
Amazon, and Microsoft."


Information Concepts has defined the cloud computing market into 3
segments, Application, Platform, and Infrastructure Services. The initial
direction of this practice is to create solutions using Platform services from
Google and Infrastructure Services from Amazon.


This solution will eliminate the need for Information Concepts' clients to
procure and provision web servers to roll out new applications. This will save
thousands of dollars in hardware, licensing, and operational costs.
Information Concepts' baseline architecture maintains corporate data within
the customer's data centers and uses XML-Based Web Services to connect the
cloud platform to the corporate data bases.

According to the IDC InfoBrief, Sponsored by Nutanix, “Surviving and Thriving in a Multi-cloud World,” multicloud deployments are now the norm for enterprise organizations – less than 30% of customers report using single cloud environments. Most customers leverage different cloud platforms across multiple service providers. The interoperability of data and applications between these varied cloud environments is growing in importance and yet access to hybrid cloud capabilities where a single application runs across clouds remains elusive to most organizations. As companies eagerly seek out ways to make the multi cloud environment a reality, these new updates from Nutanix provide additional capabilities to streamline the implementation of their cloud services deployments.
