Advanced Work Management Trails BI in the Cloud with IBM "SmartCloud"

AWM has tried IBM's new SmartCloud service and the results are better than expected.  The IBM SmartCloud service provides rapid deployment of infrastructure to help companies quickly respond to demand. It also allows companies to buy cloud server capability on a pay as you go basis.  You can use it by the month, week or just an hour.  Having tested this with the latest IBM Cognos 10 and SQL Server 2008, performance was fantastic.  Upload speeds were my initial concern but after uploading 500,000 rows in in less than a minute that was put to rest.  Response time for the application was great, and moving data between servers again exceeded expectations, with 2Gb file data movement between EU and USA running consistently at 30 - 45 Mb/s.  Importantly cloud servers can be set up and contained to any of five regions including the EU, USA or Asia to comply with data protection rules.  The Cloud is finally here and ready for enterprise use.


AWM is a leader in effective implementation of Business Intelligence. Our approach to integrating BI with the business process ensures clients get the maximum benefit from the technology and their investment. Users can focus their attention on the core activity knowing the information is correct.

By recognising the need to integrate business intelligence and business process we are able to build solutions that can quickly adapt to changes in the environment yet provide robust reporting for a wide user community.

Our goal is simple: to provide the best available information in a timely, reliable, accurate and easy to use format. Seeing information quickly and easily saves time, improves end user performance and allows individuals to focus on the key areas of their business.
