Microsoft Convergence 2015 in Atlanta GA, proves valuable to Project Hosts and all attendees in the Microsoft Dynamics space

On the first day of the event, prior to the doors opening on the EXPO floor, Project Hosts was visited by a Microsoft Partner, making early rounds so that he could, “Experience a moment with more people in the industry”. Convergence, rebranded as their “Premier Business Event”, offers just that, an opportunity to converse, face to face, with individuals that make up the industry. While the EXPO floor is always abuzz with people sharing ideas and pitching products, Microsoft created opportunities away from the show floor for Dynamics professionals to converse in more casual settings.

The show opened with a strong keynote message about empowering people and the innovation of people, “because it is the people who drive business success”. On the evening of opening day, a Microsoft Partner ADX Studio hosted an event allowing individuals to step out from behind their bullet points and pitches to mingle a top a scenic Atlanta rooftop overlooking Atlanta’s impressive skyline. There, partners, customers and ISVs talked shop and life, building relationships that will follow them home and into a future of growing opportunities.

By the third night of the event, relationships were forged and Microsoft Convergence 2015 attendees gathered at Philips Arena to enjoy an incredibly entertaining One Republic concert. The concert allowed Project Hosts’ and other Microsoft Partners the opportunity to continue their conversations about FedRAMP, Dynamics CRM and ERP opportunities in 2015. They shared both personal stories and business ventures with people eager to share the same. The information gathered from the various sessions and the individuals making up the community has proven to present more opportunities than we originally imagined.

The U.S. government launched the “Cloud-first” initiative in 2011, and mandated its implementation via FedRAMP in 2014 —  this means that U.S. Government agencies are now required to implement the majority of their computing resources in the cloud, as opposed to spending their precious IT budgets on staff and on premise solutions. With government agencies now required to use FedRAMP compliant solutions, many CSPs (Cloud Service Providers), Partners and ISVs are benefiting from one of the fastest-growing and lucrative markets they’ve seen in decades.

Scott-Chapman-FedRAMPThe U.S. government launched the “Cloud-first” initiative in 2011, and mandated its implementation via FedRAMP in 2014 —  this means that U.S. Government agencies are now required to implement the majority of their computing resources in the cloud, as opposed to spending their precious IT budgets on staff and on premise solutions. With government agencies now required to use FedRAMP compliant solutions, many CSPs (Cloud Service Providers), Partners and ISVs are benefiting from one of the fastest-growing and lucrative markets they’ve seen in decades.

Microsoft Partners and Independent Software Vendors can access and service this growing market by partnering with Project Hosts.  Project Hosts is 100% FedRAMP SaaS Compliant, supporting Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft Sharepoint and Microsoft Project Server.  Microsoft Partners and ISVs can leverage Project Hosts’s compliance, and work with Project Hosts to gain their own FedRAMP SaaS Compliance for their software and cloud solutions.

FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The program was developed to significantly reduce the effort and expense that would be incurred by government agencies to achieve high-level standards for securing government data. Designed as an “approve once, deploy many” program, authorized CSPs would attain a provisional Authority To Operate (ATO) and provide cloud services for many agencies. Government agencies can then select an authorized CSP in an effort to save taxpayer expense on government IT infrastructure and cloud applications.  Learn more about our FedRAMP platforms from these links:

By supporting the most current version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM (2015), Project Hosts is keeping pace with one of the most in-demand Customer Relationship Management Solutions

March 5, 2015

For Dynamics CRM and ERP Partners and ISVs, Project Hosts offers a dedicated partner cloud that is distinct and separate from other partners or providers. Unlike a Public Cloud offering built on shared (multi-tenant) servers, a dedicated cloud supports the installation of their application software on top of the Dynamics CRM or ERP platform. In addition, a dedicated cloud can be customized to the buyer’s specific security needs, is more configurable by the ISV through direct database access, and can be scaled to suit the customer’s performance demands. Dynamics CRM and ERP partners also benefit from Project Hosts’ FedRAMP SaaS Compliance authorization, directly opening large market opportunities.

What’s The Difference Between FedRAMP IaaS, PaaS and SaaS Compliance

February 23, 2015

FedRAMP_IPS_Image

Understanding the differences between IaaS, PaaS and SaaS FedRAMP compliant environments is critical for U.S. Government Agencies when choosing a cloud solution and a Cloud Service Provider (CSP).  IaaS and PaaS FedRAMP compliant platforms are just that – they are Infrastructure- and Platform-  as-a-Service offerings. FedRAMP compliant IaaS and PaaS clouds cover about 22% and 30% (respectively) of the 325 security controls required in the FedRAMP baseline. They do not cover any of the controls at the application layer such as access authorization, executable restrictions, intrusion detection, logging, etc.

For agencies that are considering deploying software on a FedRAMP compliant IaaS or PaaS cloud, unless the agency adds all of the application-level (SaaS-level) security controls, the deployment will not be fully FedRAMP compliant.

Project Hosts’ SharePoint, CRM, PPM, TFS and Virtual Desktop clouds are 100% SaaS-level FedRAMP compliant, thus eliminating the need for an agency to implement the SaaS-level controls on its own. Federal and state agencies can rely on Project Hosts to deploy and manage their public, private, community and hybrid clouds in a secure, reliable and cost-effective manner.

FedRAMP_Capital“Project Hosts is the first Cloud Service Provider to have demonstrated compliance with the rev4 FedRAMP baseline,” said Matt Goodrich, FedRAMP Director, GSA. “Through the CSP supplied path, Project Hosts’ environment was assessed by a FedRAMP-accredited 3APO confirming the completion of the FedRAMP Security Assessment Framework, paving the way for Project Hosts’ customer to grant their Agency ATOs.”
