Fusion PPT CEOs to be Featured Guest Speaker on Hybrid Clouds On The Enterprise Cloud Site Radio Broadcast


Vienna, VA (PRWEB) March 19, 2014

Fusion PPT, a recognized strategy and technology consulting firm, announced today that CEO Michael Biddick will be a featured guest speaker on The Enterprise Cloud Site monthly Radio Show to share his advice about Strategies for Success With Your Hybrid Cloud. Biddick will join The Enterprise Cloud Site community as a guest on the show on at 1PM ET on Thursday, March 27th, 2014. Biddick, an expert in the field of cloud computing who has authored a book on Federal Cloud Computing and written over 50 articles on cloud-related topics, will provide his insight on how to make a hybrid cloud work for your organization and what organizations are really doing with hybrid clouds.

The cloud-enabled enterprise is continuously and rapidly evolving, challenging established IT providers, and transforming IT as we now know it. Rather than asking whether it is a good idea to move to the cloud, for many organizations it is now a matter of when to move, and how to utilize the cloud’s abundant resources to increase productivity and outpace competition.

In InformationWeeks recent State of Cloud Computing Survey, 40% of respondents said that they already use cloud services. Out of that number, nearly 80% said that they use multiple cloud providers, sometimes six or more at once. This is up 7 points from 2011. Clearly, the future lies in federated cloud infrastructures these hybrid architectures simplify disaster recovery and continuity-of-operations (COOP) efforts, and promote the high availability and mobility of applications. However, applications and data that are spread across multiple clouds are fragmented, and trying to centrally control everything can cause severe management and orchestration headaches.

The Enterprise Cloud Site, run by UBM Tech, hosts a monthly radio show on its website to interview leading cloud computing experts about pressing issues and evolving cloud technologies. During his session on March 27th Biddick will discuss hybrid cloud technologies, specifically:

Fusion PPTs Article on Application Consolidation Featured on the Cover of InformationWeek


Vienna, VA (PRWEB) December 10, 2013

Fusion PPT, a recognized strategy and technology consulting firm, announced today that its article on Application Consolidation, written by CEO Michael Biddick, has been featured on the cover of the December issue of InformationWeek Magazine. Biddick, an expert in the field of cloud computing who has authored a book on Federal Cloud Computing and written over 50 articles on cloud-related topics, examines the issues surrounding application consolidation, and provides suggestions for tackling consolidation efforts within your organization.

For years, CIOs have attempted to streamline their organizations application portfolios to ease application management and increase efficiency. Trying to manage multiple systems for services such as email, human resources, and business analytics, can over-complicate normal business operations, and cause IT governance headaches. Application consolidation has some serious benefits too it promotes interoperability and information sharing, and cuts down on IT costs. It also can free up IT to focus on those business applications that are critical to driving revenue. However, despite this, application consolidation has become increasingly difficult, as many employees are either insistent upon keeping the functionality of their current software, or are simply resistant to change. Add cloud computing to the mix, and things get even more complicated.

In InformationWeeks recent Application Consolidation Survey, 45% of respondents said that they currently manage multiple applications that provide duplicate functionality. Furthermore, only 13% of companies who are currently in the consolidation process believe that their top barrier application consolidation is that each application offers unique functionality. So whats stopping them from consolidating? Cutting applications stirs strong emotions, writes Biddick. Just 12 percent of the IT pros in our survey say employees at their companies accept [application] consolidation readily, while 57 percent say theyre uneasy, and 31 percent say theyre resistant or openly hostile.

Despite these obstacles, 56% of respondents report that they have implemented some application consolidation within the last 12 months. The problem, continues Biddick, is that IT organizations must build credibility as they cut [applications], because [application] sprawl is often due to unmet needs. ITs task is to remove duplicate software while demonstrating to users that the company is trying to address their needs.

In his article, Biddick explores the current state of application consolidation and gives some best practices for successful consolidation efforts. Arbitrary and opaque wont win employee hearts and minds, remarks Biddick. Instead start by validating your organizations application requirements [and] seek feedback from a wide range of application users as you consider which system[s] to consolidate on.

Biddick continues, Its important for IT organizations to understand why their application huggers want to hang onto an [application] and to consider legitimate functional needs versus simple resistance to change.
