Computer Guidance Corporation expands cloud infrastructure

4/07/2014 by


It has been revealed that Computer Guidance Corporation (CGC) is to significantly expand its cloud hosting infrastructure so that it can host further clients over the coming months. CGC is one of the world leaders in ERP software solution developing. As the market moves quickly towards the cloud, the company is to boost its IBM Power Systems-based infrastructure so that it is able to take on an additional 1,000 users this year. The move indicates just how much the firm’s premier cloud-based ERP tools are expanding as an increasing number of companies demand cloud services.

The investment is a significant one for CGC, but it is not without its merits. When completed, the company’s capacity will have grown to 5,000 hosted eCMS users. The two data storage centres, compliant with two tier IV SOC requirements, are located in Atlanta, Georgia and Phoenix, Arizona. The growth will mean that even more clients will be able to take advantage of the firm’s disaster recovery solutions, hosted eCMS construction ERP software and managed hosting services.

Mike Bihlmeier, CGC’s president, expressed that the company understands the rising demand from clients, who themselves are noting increased expansion. It is essential for these companies to be able to access data whenever and wherever they want, and for this they need a secure and dependant system; meanwhile, IBM Power Ecosystem and Strategy’s Terri Virnig said: “IBM Power Systems are designed to provide Computer Guidance Corporation clients with advanced capabilities for big data and cloud computing workloads. Clients can also benefit from Power System’s industry-leading server quality and utilisation levels, which help to reduce floor space as well as power and cooling costs.”

CGC was founded in 1981 and has become one of the leaders in construction enterprise resource planning software. For many years its clients have been offered a variety of powerful tools to help with project and financial management, with features supported by advanced productivity tools and forward-thinking business intelligence and analytics applications. Over the years, hundreds of commercial contractors have used CGC’s systems to gain quantifiable advantages; now, as the movement into cloud computing continues to see real growth, it is vital that current customers, as well as new ones, can gain access to powerful tools in the virtual world. The latest expansion by CGC will mean that it can continue to offer innovative and ground-breaking tools that allow its clients to continue working competitively over the months and years to come.
