Project Hosts Makes Private Custom Clouds Available For UMT360's Complete Line of Enterprise Portfolio Management Solutions at Project Conference 2014

Global 2000 Customers and Government Agencies Can Gain All the Advantages of a UMT360-Based Private Cloud Without All the Costs and Complexities Associated With Hosting It Themselves

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 1, 2014) - Microsoft Project Conference 2014 -- Project Hosts, the leading provider of Custom Cloud hosting for Microsoft PPM, SharePoint and CRM, today announced private cloud hosting support for UMT360's entire line of Enterprise Portfolio Management solution offerings. Project Hosts will work directly with UMT360 to provide Global 2000 clients as well as government agencies with a cloud-based solution that delivers all the capabilities of an on-premise deployment, but in about 1/2 the deployment time and at around 1/2 the IT operating costs of a comparable in-house deployment.

Project Hosts delivers PPM Custom Cloud hosting and Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions that, unlike standard multitenant public clouds, provide dedicated environments with the customized security, UMT360 applications and real-time reporting capabilities that enterprises require. With more than a decade of experience in Microsoft hosting and cloud services, Project Hosts provides the necessary competencies and inherent technical resources to deliver robust, reliable and secure private cloud hosting services.

"Project Hosts is the recognized leader in hosting of Project Server and SharePoint solutions and our premier private-cloud hosting partner for UMT360 solutions," said Ben Chamberlin, Chief Product & Marketing Officer for UMT360. "With Project Hosts' Custom Clouds, our clients will realize faster deployment times and improved ROI on their projects."

"Our customers are using UMT360 to gain complete insight into project and portfolio costs and maximize ROI from their strategic portfolios," said Scott Chapman, CEO and Co-Founder of Project Hosts.

UMT360 will be showcasing the following PPM+ solutions at Project Conference helping companies realize more ROI from Project Server:

  • PPM+ Financial Intelligence: Poor success rates and failure to realize the planned business value from project portfolios has many executives questioning the effectiveness of their PPM. UMT360 is helping companies bridge the gap between ERP systems and Project Server to deliver the complete financial transparency needed to make smarter decisions and maximize ROI from strategic initiatives. 
  • PPM+ Application Portfolios: On average, applications consume 33% of IT budgets with half of that used to maintain a complex set of legacy systems not aligned to business needs. CIOs are meeting the challenge of doing 'more with less' by using UMT360 to help rationalize their application portfolios, reduce the IT spend to fund more innovation and modernize IT to better align with the business and provide agility to meet changing demands.
  • PPM+ IT Business Management: IT is often perceived as the proverbial 'black box' -- a pure cost center rather than a value generating function. Under pressure to reduce costs, better align with the business and improve the quality of IT services, CIOs are turning to UMT360's powerful IT Business Management solution to help them connect disparate portfolios and deliver the financial transparency needed to effectively Run IT as a Business.
