Sensei Project Solutions Partners With Project Hosts to Accelerate Customer Deployments Using Custom Cloud Hosted Project and Portfolio Management Solutions

SUNNYVALE, CA and PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Jul 10, 2012) - Today, Sensei Project Solutions, specialists in successful project and portfolio management (PPM) solutions, and Project Hosts, the recognized leader in custom cloud hosting of Microsoft solutions, announced that they have entered into a partnership agreement that puts Sensei Project Solutions "in the cloud" to accelerate customer deployments and service offerings. Using a custom cloud foundation from Project Hosts, Sensei Project Solutions can deliver a much richer and more compelling range of consultative, training and support services to enterprise PMOs and project managers. Combined with consultative and training services, custom clouds can accelerate service deliveries, and enables customers to gain more business value from their PPM systems without having to invest more in on-site technology resources.

"With cloud-based PPM services inherent in our offering, we now have the ability to accelerate customer deployments and enable our clients to extract far more business value from their existing PPM systems," said Kenneth Steiness, Managing Partner & VP of Delivery for Sensei Project Solutions. "We are very excited to enter into a partnership with Project Hosts, as they are the recognized leader and experts in custom cloud hosting for project and portfolio management. Early indications demonstrate that we can offer customers a basic PPM environment in about half the time and about half the operating cost as a similarly configured on-site PPM environment."  

"By combining their depth of expertise in project and portfolio management, with our custom cloud foundation, Sensei Project Solutions can deliver a broader range of innovative services and business practices to their clients," said Scott Chapman, President and Co-Founder of Project Hosts. "By eliminating the costs and complexities associated with traditional on-site PPM solutions, Sensei Project Solutions can use custom clouds to respond more quickly to their clients' PPM enterprise needs, without sacrificing specific configuration, tuning and security requirements." 

Sensei Project Solutions will use the cloud to support all of their client service offerings: consulting practice, training services, and products & solutions. During consultative phases, PPM cloud-services can be used to define up-front requirements from general design through configuration and on-going support. For training services, PPM cloud-services can help with client and deployment-specific or role-based training. PPM cloud-services can also easily accommodate the vast library of reusable, pre-configured solutions and report packs that have been built by Sensei from years of real world experience enabling them to deliver more services in far less time.

Project Hosts' "custom cloud" solutions deliver all the business and technology benefits of a commodity cloud solution, with the added advantage of supporting a business's solution architecture, their specific application integration and configuration needs, and security requirements. With a Custom CloudPHD (Project Hosts Deployment), customers benefit from a Project and Portfolio Management solution that is tailor made to their exact business needs. Project Hosts is a certified Microsoft hosting provider delivering secure, robust and scalable custom clouds from SAS 70 II / SSAE 16 and ISO/IEC 27001 certified data center facilities that are backed by a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
