Jim Nichols, director of nonprofits at PTG, commented, “Prior to Microsoft Office 365, Meals on Wheels shuffled papers and talked over cubicles to manage volunteer schedules, meals, and grants.” He continued, “Microsoft has long supported nonprofits from a pricing and functionality perspective, and PTG knows how to help customers best utilize technology to optimize their unique operations. It’s a great match.”

Meals on Wheels is a 501(c)3 organization that enhances the quality of life of homebound individuals by providing hot nutritious meals, personal contact and related services. They manage 2500 volunteers and deliver 1500 meals daily.

We would recommend PTG to anyone in the nonprofit world.” She continued, “The Meals on Wheels team is becoming more ‘tech savvy’ in order to become more efficient in carrying out our mission every day.”

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...
