S1 Emphasizes Flash and Infrastructure Consulting Along with Continued Focus on Healthcare Industry

BOISE, Idaho, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- S1 IT Solutions, a leading technology solutions provider, today announced its strategy for 2014, with a focus on meeting critical customer needs through three key areas: application acceleration using IBM Flash technology, enhanced infrastructure consulting services and continued expansion of S1's highly successful healthcare solutions.

S1 is a leading IT solutions provider, offering comprehensive IT strategy and architecture services backed by extensive expertise in infrastructure consulting and systems integration. Aligned with prominent technology partners such as IBM, S1 provides expertise in planning, design and implementation of technology that helps organizations achieve their business objectives and improve the delivery of services.

"As a trusted advisor, S1 IT Solutions is committed to strengthening the value we deliver by focusing on the technologies and services we believe will best support the needs of our customers," according to Erik Cline, Vice President, S1. "For 2014, we will continue to invest in resources, training and expertise to deliver on that promise."

Moving forward in 2014, the company's critical initiatives will include:

  • Application acceleration using IBM Flash technology: Supporting the growing need for IBM Flash storage technology that enables data-driven applications to operate at high availability and peak performance — providing superior storage density, cost efficiency, packaging, energy consumption and speed to deployment when compared with traditional disk technology
  • Enhanced Consulting Services: Expanding S1's consulting solutions with comprehensive IT strategy and architecture design services — helping organizations identify opportunities for added efficiency, business value and growth while creating a roadmap of clearly defined, actionable steps for improvement
  • Healthcare Solutions: Continuing to build S1's momentum as a recognized go-to partner for (1) IBM infrastructure supporting widely used Epic integrated software applications, (2) Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) solutions that allow organizations to manage disparate multivendor medical images and files through one seamless portal, and (3) encryption solutions that evaluate storage environments and options, and provide a roadmap for cost-effective encryption

"In the coming year, S1 IT Solutions will roll out new programs and solutions designed to help customers make informed decisions that will both protect their existing investments and open the door to the added value and new technology," said Cline.

For example, in the coming months the company will launch a "Flash Roadshow" in the western United States, visiting a series of locations to demonstrate the capabilities of IBM Flash. In addition to providing a hands-on demo of Flash storage, S1 will use the demonstration tool to help customers and prospects evaluate the viability of the IBM product for use in their own organizations. S1 offers a comprehensive Flash portfolio including the IBM FlashSystem™ family of solutions and Flash-optimized XIV, Storwize V7000 and DS8000 storage.
