Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
Sovereign Systems, a specialized solutions provider and cloud services firm announced today a partnership with Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud software and services provider. Sovereign and Virtustream partnered to deliver Sovereign’s SAP® BusinessObjects driven Analytics and Business Intelligence solutions on Virtustream's xStream™ cloud management platform (CMP). This alliance will drive operational efficiencies and competitive advantage for Sovereign’s enterprise clients who will now receive the benefits of a cloud based solution including increased efficiency and enhanced security and performance.
Through this partnership, Sovereign can rapidly deploy the infrastructure required to support Analytics and Big Data projects to their customers, greatly reducing the time IT must spend analyzing and implementing a myriad of complex hardware and infrastructure solutions typical in a traditional deployment model.
“Business leaders need access to analyze data as simply and efficiently as they access email and that requires a shift in traditional IT driven Business Intelligence projects,” said Mike Wasserman, General Manager of Sovereign System’s Government and Analytics Division. “Virtustream removes many of the complexities that typically consume IT staff and frees that time to focus on Business Requirements and enabling end users access to critical data.”
Virtustream’s xStream cloud management platform was purpose built from the ground up to deliver a robust, secure enterprise class cloud environment enabling both mission-critical legacy and web-scale application to be moved to the cloud. Virtustream has over 100+ SAP customers already running their SAP Environments on xStream and has the security, performance, and economics needed to provide customers a rapid entry into ‘Big Data’, especially customers operating in highly regulated industries such as Healthcare and Government.
“Our customers are shifting towards procuring services versus technology, and this is especially the case for customers who grasp the value in Big Data. Progressive CIO’s are driving their staff to focus on the business and not as much the vendor and tools any longer” said Dave Wasserman, Sovereign managing partner. “Sovereign’s partnerships with SAP and Virtustream enable us to deliver quick time to value alignment with the business goals that our customer’s require.”
“There are notable synergies between Virtustream and Sovereign as both companies have developed service portfolios focused on optimizing enterprise application performance,” said Peter Albers, Executive Vice-President of Cloud IaaS at Virtustream. “By running their SAP BusinessObjects driven Analytics and Business Intelligence on Virtustream’s cloud, Sovereign’s clients benefit from additional flexibility and scalability coupled with the cost efficiencies that are inherent to an on demand compute model.”
