Champion Solutions Group Launches the Your Cloud Demo Experience™

Offers companies a one-of-a-kind look at their roadmap to the cloud and answers the ever present question: 'Now what?'

BOCA RATON, Fla., April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Champion Solutions Group, the 2011 VMware Infrastructure Virtualization Partner of the Year for the Americas, announced the availability of the Your Cloud Demo Experience™. This unique virtual demo center is designed to guide companies on their journey to the cloud.  With today's fast moving IT architectural shift to virtualization and cloud computing, Champion can recreate a company's current environment and show them the next steps to private and public cloud adoption.

"Our customers have realized substantial benefits as a result of virtualizing their environments, including ROI, productivity, and manageability improvements," said Chris Pyle, president and CEO, Champion Solutions Group. "But, now what?" asks Pyle. "What does the next step look like? Each company is at a different point on the roadmap. And the question Champion is hearing from customers is 'Where do we go from here?' Champion takes the guess work out of these next steps, so you can view the future evolution of your data center and infrastructure through this unique, hands-on demonstration," concludes Pyle.

Leveraging their state-of-the-art Solution & Innovation Center, which includes nearly $2.5M in technology infrastructure, Champion is able to customize each demo based upon a company's unique environment. With 20 different modules, including VMware vCenter™ Operations, VMware vCloud®™ Director and VMware vSphere®™), Champion can demonstrate the VMware cloud infrastructure suite running on an IBM / Intel server platform.

"We take a consultative approach to the Your Cloud Demo Experience," said Dave Fivey, director of engineering excellence, Champion Solutions Group. "Companies have made significant investments in their technology infrastructure, and it's important for us to understand where they are today, in order to demonstrate their future roadmap. Champion has the expertise to do just that."

The Your Cloud Demo Experience enables companies to get a closer look at cloud-based architectures, including Intel's latest Xeon® E5 2600 Family Processors, which provides a flexible cloud foundation that lets you rapidly scale computing resources. "As clients develop their cloud strategy, they can rely on Intel® to deliver the best processor performance, breakthrough I/O innovation, trusted security, and the best Data Center & Cloud Computing performance per watt," said Chee Pung Loy, Intel Enterprise Solution Provider Manager for the Southeast. "The Intel® Xeon® E5 2600 Family Processors is what is powering the Champion Your Cloud Demo Experience and we encourage any company that is considering expanding your virtual environment to test drive this unique environment. Intel® is proud to be part of this project."

"More and more organizations are turning to cloud computing to improve IT efficiency and deliver better business results," said Mathew Lodge, senior director, Cloud Services, VMware. "This virtual demo from Champion Solutions Group gives customers the ability to view an evolutionary and practical path to the cloud model that suits them, allowing them to foresee the real business value gained from cloud computing."

Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
