Hurricane Bill Moves Towards the East Coast – Are the Local Governments Prepared?

Hurricane Bill Moves Towards the East Coast - Are the Local Governments Prepared?












Vancouver, BC (Vocus) August 21, 2009

BasicGov recommends adding web-based software to local government's community development departments to help with data protection and recovery for hurricane contingency planning.

A key feature of cloud computing is that users' information is housed in multiple, geographically dispersed data centers that provide extensive backup, data archive and failover capabilities. This includes a multi-level backup strategy of disk-to-disk-to-tape data backups which ensure maximum recovery speed with minimum potential for data loss. Major suppliers of cloud computing infrastructure such as Salesforce.com provide very high levels of service availability through virtualized servers at multiple data centers. Users of web-based services have both their data and server availability protected in the event of a natural disaster.

"We are working with many cities that have adopted cloud computing to manage their community development processes and these cities are better prepared for continuity after a natural disaster like a hurricane," said David Roberts, President & CEO with BasicGov. "If a city that uses cloud computing to manage its community development department had the misfortune to lose all its IT equipment in a hurricane, it could start the task of rebuilding the next day from any location using laptops and an Internet connection."

Bill Abram, Founder and President of Pragmatix, to Present Cloud Computing Seminar at the United Way of Westchester & Putnam?s Annual Not-For-Profit Summit

Bill Abram, Founder and President of Pragmatix, to Present Cloud Computing Seminar
at the United Way of Westchester & Putnam’s Annual Not-For-Profit Summit











Bill Abram


Elmsford, NY (PRWEB) April 28, 2011

Bill Abram, the founder and president of Pragmatix, Inc., a friendly team of IT professionals that help nonprofits, corporations and small businesses use reliable, secure technology that just right for their unique needs, will present a seminar at the United Way of Westchester and Putnam’s Annual Not-For-Profit Summit on Monday, May 9 at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown, NY.

Abram’s seminar entitled, “Cloud Computing: What NFP Directors Need to Know, for Directors who are Looking for Ways to Save Money and Increase Services,” will include the definition of cloud computing, as well as ‘the good, the bad and the ugly’ aspects of the solution. His seminar is intended to give nonprofit executive directors a better understanding of cloud computing and its advantages and disadvantages.

Among the advantages that he will discuss are the circumstances in which cloud computing services make sense, such as cost savings. He will also discuss specific types of cloud services that will be effective in the nonprofit community.

Abram will address the cons of cloud services as well, which he calls “the bad” and “the ugly.” The issues that will be discussed include set-up, required technical skills, the difficulties of data migration and preservation, security concerns, and the negative consequences associated with termination of services or failure of a service provider.

“Although there has been recent hype about cloud computing, many people are unfamiliar with how it works,” Abram said. “My seminar will hopefully help nonprofit directors understand the concept so that they can decide if cloud services will be beneficial to their organization.”

A trailblazer in information technology, Abram has a strong track record of streamlining processes and improving an organization’s bottom line.

Abram was previously chosen to serve on a panel of IT security experts at a Ziff Davis Security Solutions Virtual Trade Show and has spoken at Contact Advocate's Tech Speak seminar about security issues related to e-commerce. He was also chosen by WatchIT, an education company that produces interactive learning programs, to address the issues of business continuity and disaster recovery.

He has published articles, including "Hack-Proofing Your Business against Unwanted Intruders" in the Patent Trader and "What Small Business Owners Should Know about E-mail" in the Westchester County Business Journal. Most recently, he published an article in Small Business Technology Magazine, entitled “Weathering the Storm: Continuity and Disaster Recovery.” He has also published articles on CIOUpdate.com, SmartBiz.com, among others.

U.S. Graphic Design Businesses Bill $5.8 Billion in 2004; New Study Profiles Industry’s 16,000+ Businesses, 80,000 Freelancers, and $400+ Million in Annual Capital Purchases

U.S. Graphic Design Businesses Bill $ 5.8 Billion in 2004; New Study Profiles Industry’s 16,000+ Businesses, 80,000 Freelancers, and $ 400+ Million in Annual Capital Purchases










HARRISVILLE, RI (PRWEB) September 27, 2004 -

– The $ 5.8 billion graphic design industry has approximately 16,000+ businesses (with an average of four employees each) and spends more than $ 400 million annually on capital goods. The industry has over 80,000 independent freelance practitioners. This is according to a new study entitled “The U.S. Graphic Design Business 2004-2009”, which will soon be published by Strategies for Management, Inc.

A two-page project summary can be downloaded at http://www.prweb.com/prfiles/2004/09/23/161427/SFM_Graphic_Design_Project_Overview.pdf

A 16-page presentation-style project summary can be downloaded at http://www.prweb.com/prfiles/2004/09/23/161427/SFM_Graphic_Design_Presentation.pdf

Examining the demographics and trends of graphic design businesses and freelancers, the report outlines the number of creative businesses, employees and freelancers, types of services being offered (and how their service mix is changing), as well as the sizes of their billings and capital purchases. Reporting will be based on historical data spanning 1997 to 2003, SFM estimated data for 2004, and SFM forecasts from 2005 through 2009. It also reviews trends on an inflation-adjusted basis, which is critical to understanding the true nature of the business.

“This type of study is important,” said Dr. Joseph Webb, president of SFM, “because the graphic design industry represents a large portion of the overall graphic arts marketplace and their skills and experience are the first step in the demand for print and other media. This significant industry is often overlooked or underserved by vendors, suppliers and print-service providers.”

“The U.S. Graphic Design Business 2004-2009” is slated for release by late October, and SFM is now soliciting “early bird discount” subscribers for the study.

Some of the report's topics on a historical and forecast basis include:

-- number of design businesses and their employees

-- number of design freelancers

-- sizes of design businesses by number of employees and receipts

-- how many graphic design businesses are started and closed annually

-- where designers get revenues (service mix), and how this is changing

-- key ratio data, such as receipts per business, receipts per employee, payroll per business, and more

-- capital expenditures

The report will also identify and have Internet-based access to graphic design business information sources, such as associations, publications, and many others.

Vendors and dealers selling and working with graphic design businesses will find the report to be an invaluable tool. "The data and commentary in this study will assist executives greatly," said Vince Naselli, consultant to the project. "Executives will be able to rely on this report for strategic projects that require design-market sizing and segmentation, product development, opportunity assessment, channel and distribution strategy, promotion strategies, and all aspects of planning and forecasting," added Mr. Naselli.

The project is currently underway and is planned for release on October 28, 2004.

This report is priced at $ 2,875. There is a special pre-publication price of $ 1,975, a savings of more than 30% ($ 900). The deadline for the “early-bird” pricing is October 18, 2004. The report can be pre-ordered at http://store.yahoo.com/drjoe/graphicdesign.html

Heading the project are Dr. Joseph Webb, President of Strategies for Management, and Mr. Vince Naselli of Naselli & Associates. Dr. Webb has studied the design business for more than 25 years as a consultant, executive, and the founder of the TrendWatch surveys. His doctoral work was completed at the NYU Center for Graphic Arts Management and Technology. Mr. Naselli has over 20 years of professional experience in the graphic arts marketing industry and is the former Director of TrendWatch Graphic Arts, and was previously a product management and research executive with Agfa.

For more information, interested parties can e-mail Strategies for Management at designstudy@sfminc.com, or can call Mr. Vince Naselli at 1-732-568-0316.
