Flatirons Solutions, a provider of content lifecycle management (CLM) consulting, technology, and outsourcing solutions to Fortune 1000 companies, today announced it has helped BMO Harris Bank achieve significant ROI by using the EMC® InfoArchive solution and Flatirons’ Application Retirement solution, as highlighted by BMO in a presentation at the EMC World conference this week.
During the presentation, Mr. Daryl Lueck, Vice President and Lead Technology Officer for BMO Financial Group, explained how the Flatirons’ Application Retirement solution enabled them to retire multiple PeopleSoft legacy applications brought into BMO through merger and acquisition. This solution has allowed BMO to save $4M in annual legacy maintenance costs, achieve a 12-month rapid payback of project costs, and successfully use the EMC InfoArchive repository to access and retain the legacy data for regulatory compliance purposes.
Flatirons Solutions’ Application Retirement for InfoArchive is an EMC Certified Solution that allows organizations to eliminate 70 percent or more of their IT maintenance budget by replacing outdated legacy applications with a unified standards-based repository with compliant access to the legacy data. Built on EMC’s powerful InfoArchive platform, it takes full advantage of InfoArchive’s enterprise scalability, compliant archiving features, and unique ability to store both structured data and unstructured content. Flatirons Solutions offers prospective customers a free half-day on-site Portfolio Analysis to help identify candidate applications and prepare a financial justification and projected ROI.
Flatirons Solutions also announced today its participation in The InfoArchive Consortium, an alliance committed to scaling and fostering the adoption of next-generation unified archiving based on the EMC InfoArchive platform. This week’s presentation and Consortium announcement reinforce the need for solutions like Flatirons’ Application Retirement and the EMC InfoArchive.

That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
