NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/15/14 -- Charles A. Barragato & Co. LLP ("CAB"), CPAs and Trusted Business Advisors, has enhanced the service platform it offers to high net worth individuals and their families. Through its SFG Business Management division and led by partner Scott F. Guber, CPA this comprehensive service combines sophisticated bill paying in a paperless environment along with a keen attention to a client's overall financial scenario.
Says Scott, "Long gone are the days of a plain-vanilla check writing service. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, our process takes the task and management of bill-paying to an entirely new level. While incorporating the sophistication of today's bank and credit card institutions, our proactive approach safeguards privacy and security on all levels. Since the SFG division operates in this high-tech environment, we minimize the risk of identity theft and provide a secure setting for communication with our client. Immediate access and retrieval of items such as past bills and deposits, insurance policies, estate documents and the like ensures delivery of an efficient service and prompt answers to questions a client may have. Quite simply, SFG works 24/7 to help make its clients' lives less stressful."
Scott continues, "High Net-Worth individuals, be they corporate executives, entrepreneurs, physicians, athletes or celebrities, all have one thing in common -- they have no time! These individuals have families, multiple homes (domestically and abroad), charitable foundations and household help. They cannot keep up with managing or the exposure of the day-to-day financial needs of themselves and others. We take care of all this for them, and to their great relief."
Some of the benefits of our service include:
- Immediately identify potential credit card fraud or misuse
- Proactive approach to the purchase of large ticket items by securing immediate insurance coverage where appropriate
- Highlight large variances in monthly expenses to quickly identify issues / problems
- Track household expenses to quantify the true cost of running each residence
- Identify business and tax-deductible expenses for a proactive approach to tax planning
- Deliver detailed monthly reporting, including budgeted to actual cash flow for a clearer picture of finances
Says SFG client and noted TV and Film Director/Screenwriter Greg Mottola, "Since engaging Scott and his team 20 years ago, I not only had a huge sense of relief that all my financial responsibilities were being taken care of professionally and timely, but SFG's service enabled me up to concentrate on growing my business. My family and I are eternally grateful to Scott and his SFG team, and could not have focused on my career without them."
Finally, concludes Scott, "High-end physicians and surgeons who are generating multi-millions for a hospital have precious little time to pay bills and manage their financial life. In many cases, it's the less financially sophisticated family members who are trying to keep up and deal with family financial issues such as bill paying and insurance review. It's a daunting task. So the physician / surgeon engage us, or the employer / hospital engage us, to take the pressure off them and their family.
"Once SFG is fully-integrated, that person becomes more focused and productive for the Hospital, themselves and the patient. So it's a real win-win."

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.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight.

He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. 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...

DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle.
