PresidioHealth's story is an example of what cloud computing should be about: people with great ideas putting them into action quickly, instead of focusing on the computing power necessary to support them.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) September 21, 2009
Appistry, a pioneer in private cloud computing for the enterprise, today announced that PresidioHealth has built its Peak Performance Software on Appistry CloudIQ Platform, accelerating its time to market and reducing its infrastructure costs while ensuring H.I.P.A.A. and P.C.I. compliance. PresidioHealth provides software as a service (SaaS) for billing and physician performance management to emergency rooms and physician practices. The company's C.T.O., Tom Gregory, will participate in Appistry's free Webinar on Sept. 24 at 11:00 PST/ 2:00 EST.
"PresidioHealth is a great example of a company whose excellent idea has come to fruition because of the benefits of cloud computing," said Gregory. "Appistry's CloudIQ Platform has allowed us to keep costs low, with near-immediate return on investment, and ensure scalability to support our rapid growth -- all while ensuring H.I.P.A.A. compliance, patient privacy and the height of security. We needed a cloud computing partner that could demonstrate a willingness to work with us both technically and from a business perspective. Appistry has been an excellent choice."
Today, using Appistry CloudIQ Platform, PresidioHealth is experiencing the following benefits:
- Increase in computing power by over 70%, at one-half the cost: Despite reducing its on-site infrastructure costs by half, PresidioHealth has significantly increased its computing power;
- On-demand elasticity: Instead of upfront infrastructure investment, PresidioHealth can grow capacity as needed;
- Faster time to market: PresidioHealth can focus on quick response to market needs, rather than on the low-level programming typical of distributed computing, or the back-end support required to run a data-center;
- Reduced complexity in IT infrastructure: GoGrid, which provides the cloud infrastructure to PresidioHealth, and Appistry, which provides the cloud application platform, provide ease and simplicity through their partnership.
"We're pleased to have another vertical market represented in our extensive customer base," said Sam Charrington, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing for Appistry. "PresidioHealth's story is an example of what cloud computing should be about: people with great ideas putting them into action quickly, instead of focusing on the computing power necessary to support them."
