Apptis Ranks Number 61 on 2010 InformationWeek 500
Apptis, a driving force behind development of a secure cloud computing solution for federal agencies, is so committed to the benefits of cloud computing, it implemented cloud computing within its own organization to solve operational business problems.
Monarch Beach, CA — October 04, 2010 — Apptis, Inc., a leading provider of essential IT and communications services to key Defense and Civilian Agencies, today announced that it ranked number 61 on this year’s InformationWeek 500 – a list of the top technology innovators in the U.S. The annual list was revealed last week at a gala awards ceremony at the exclusive InformationWeek 500 Conference taking place at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, CA.
Apptis broke through to the Top 100 on prestigious list which spotlights the power of innovation in information technology. Apptis stands behind its Cloud Computing solutions as a way to help the government invest a greater portion of its information technology spend on its core missions, rather than on operating and maintaining the information technology infrastructure.
“It is outstanding to be ranked on the InformationWeek 500 listing,” said Phil Horvitz, Apptis Chief Technology Officer. “We are honored to be on this list with such innovative business and technology leaders.”
A sophisticated, industry standard financial planning application used by Apptis for budgeting and forecasting purposes was taking upwards of 20 hours on four application servers to produce the financial reports needed by the executive management team to run the business. This time was in addition to the 18 to 20 hours required monthly to update the application with the pertinent information and business data before it could produce accurate reports. By moving the application to the Cloud, Apptis reduced critical runtime from 20 hours to less than one hour – for a total cost to the company of just $18.00 per month.
“For 22 years, the InformationWeek 500 has honored the most innovative users of business technology,” said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. “As we start to emerge from the worst recession in decades, the IT focus is now on driving growth—new sources of revenue, new relationships with customers, even new business models. This year’s ranking placed special emphasis on those companies and business technology executives leading that charge.”
InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation’s most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America’s best-known companies. Top winners have included: CME Group, Conway, National Semiconductor, Kimberly-Clark, Hilton Hotels and Unum. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
