Cordys, Fujitsu and Mercer Show Boston Businesses the Path to the Cloud

Global cloud, PaaS, and BPM service providers bring together business operations and cloud professionals to share expertise during free panel discussion on moving to the cloud

BURLINGTON, Mass. and PLEASANTON, Calif., Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cordys, a leading global provider of cloud platform software, will hold a free, open-to-the-public panel at the Cafe Escadrille in Burlington, Mass. on Tuesday, September 25th from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. to discuss using the cloud to bolster business and IT efforts. A panel of business operations and cloud experts will explore the operational imperatives of using the cloud, highlighting both successes and challenges experienced along the way.

Enterprises recognize the benefits of moving to the cloud – agility and speed, operational intelligence, and mobility features that on-premise software can't compete with – yet some companies still hesitate to make the transition.

THINKstrategies' managing director Jeff Kaplan will lead the panel discussion with industry experts and Cordys customers Fujitsu and Mercer. Keith Swanson, VP R&D, chief software architect from Interstage, Fujitsu and Mike Mordas, CIO, Mercer will share their experiences and perspectives on cloud, and discuss how they were able to maximize their existing IT infrastructures by:

  • Operating business and IT in the cloud;
  • reducing operational risk and IT costs;
  • implementing cloud provisioning and management;
  • conducting cloud orchestration;
  • performing PaaS business operations.

"Businesses have moved past the stage where the cloud is unknown, but many need help understanding where to start," said Don Drury, VP global solutions engineering, Cordys. "Fujitsu's and Mercer's experiences offer concrete examples of how to begin and expected outcomes for enterprises or service providers considering migration to the cloud."

For business owners considering the cloud to improve operations, lower costs or deliver value-added services to their customers, please RSVP at
