Connectria Hosting, a global managed and cloud hosting provider, was named a winner of a 2014 IBM Beacon Award for Outstanding Expert Integrated Systems Solution, PureSystems Category. Each year, this honor is awarded to a select number of IBM Business Partners who have delivered exceptional solutions to drive business value and transform the way their clients and industries do business.
Connectria’s winning solution involved the delivery of a HIPAA Compliant Private Cloud based upon the IBM PureSystems Platform. The hybrid private cloud solution also included an additional PureSystems environment at the customer’s location, managed remotely by Connectria, for disaster recovery purposes.
According to Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO, “Our customer, a leading provider in comprehensive, cost-effective pharmaceutical and home care solutions, had the goal of substantially reducing its operating costs through outsourcing its diverse IT infrastructure to a hosting provider.” Waidmann further added, “Our solution leveraged two core areas of expertise within Connectria – hosting multiple technologies, such as Windows hosting, AIX hosting and IBM i hosting on a single IBM PureFlex System hosting platform, and HIPAA compliant hosting. We’re happy to report that we’ve exceeded our customer’s expectations and we are delighted to be recognized as an IBM Beacon Award winner.”
The Beacon Awards are IBM’s premier Business Partner recognition program. Announced at the IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, and selected by leading industry influencers and IBM executives from among hundreds of nominations, IBM's Beacon Awards recognize IBM Business Partners who have demonstrated business excellence in delivering IBM-based solutions resulting in client transformation and business growth. This year’s awards recognized Business Partner achievements across 27 award categories.
“This year’s Beacon Award winners are Business Partners who have truly demonstrated their ability to develop new, advanced approaches to solving challenges while also transforming the way their clients and industries conduct business,” said Marc Dupaquier, general manager, IBM Global Business Partners. “We’re honored to recognize Connectria for winning the Beacon Award for Outstanding Expert Integrated Systems Solution for PureSystems and consistently delivering value to our mutual clients.”

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
