Cloud Solutions Drive Rapid Growth for Cumulus Global

BOSTON, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cumulus Global today announced revenue growth exceeding 300% for 2012 as the company's cloud solutions business continues to expand.  Sales for 2012 surpassed $3.3 million dollars compared to $972,000 in 2011.  Net income before taxes jumped over 400%, to more than $200,000 for 2012.  This growth reflects increasing demand from Cumulus Global's core small and mid-size business markets, as well as the company's expansion into new market segments. 

"In the last 18 months, we have helped more than 120 school districts migrate to Google Apps for Education, deploy Chromebooks for Education, and protect their networks and in-house data," noted Allen Falcon, CEO and co-founder.  "We see increasing opportunity in the educational market."

The company also sees increasing demand from local, municipal, and county governments and agencies throughout New England and nationally.  Falcon expects revenues from Google Apps for Government and related services to "more than triple over the next twelve to eighteen months."   Falcon attributes this growth to the migration, education, and support services offered, including the company's participation in the FCC E-Rate program for schools and libraries.

Serving the needs of small and mid-size businesses, those with 1 to 1000 employees, remains a core market for Cumulus Global.  According to Falcon, "Our core SMB market grew by more than 30% last year and we see that rate of growth accelerating."  Falcon attributes this growth to the company's focus on solutions rather than technology.

"We do not sell hype or technology," stated Falcon.  "We work with our customers to identify if and how cloud solutions can improve efficiency, expand services, drive revenue, and lower costs.  We bundle products and services that overcome challenges and enable growth."   Partnering with more than a dozen ISVs and solution providers, Cumulus Global can meet customers' regulatory compliance, security, data management, and IT administration needs.

For companies, non-profits, government agencies, and schools interested in learning more, Cumulus Global conducts regular webcasts and Q&A sessions.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

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.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
