This program is designed to provide those asking about the viability and application of cloud computing for their existing and future IT assets, with solid initial answers."- David Linthicum, CTO Bick Group
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 6, 2010
Today Bick Group announced the launch of the Cloud Computing Quick Assessment Program (CCQA). CCQA provides commercial and government clients with a quick look at their existing IT assets and the potential use of private and public cloud computing resources to bring more cost and operational efficiencies to existing IT. This is a balanced and independent assessment focusing on the requirements of the business, or the mission of the agency, and not the hype.
David S. Linthicum, a well known thought leader in the cloud computing and service oriented architecture (SOA) space, and the author of the best selling cloud computing book Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in your Enterprise…a Step-by-Step Guide. Mr. Linthicum is the CTO of Bick Group and is providing leadership within the emerging cloud computing space, including many public speaking events, 4 blogs focusing on best practices in the emerging cloud computing market, and a weekly Cloud Computing Podcast.
“This program is designed to provide those asking about the viability and application of cloud computing for their existing and future IT assets, with solid initial answers,” states Mr. Linthicum. “We designed this program to look at all architectural assets, including data, applications, and business processing, looking that what’s working, what needs improvement, and how the emerging use of private and public clouds can provide value, and where they can provide value.”
“Our clients are demanding this type of assessment.” states Bill Russell, Executive VP of IT Services for Bick Group. "The efficiency, flexibility, and responsiveness of these cloud computing models offer enterprise clients significant competitive advantages. However, they need to understand the use of cloud computing in context of their existing IT infrastructure. Dave designed this program to get to the heart of the issues quickly, and provide the information they require when considering the value of cloud.”
