SpringCM Partners With Acumen Solutions® to Boost Government Adoption of Cloud Computing for Document Applications

New Partnership to Help Government Agencies Implement Applications for Greater Efficiency and Cost Savings

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) -  SpringCM, a provider of high-impact cloud content management solutions, and Acumen Solutions, a leading business and technology consulting firm with a public sector cloud computing practice, today announced a partnership to help government agencies get started with their cloud-computing initiatives. Cloud computing has gained increasing visibility in the Federal government, including the Fiscal Year 2010 Budget of the United States Government  that calls for agencies to begin pilot projects using cloud computing in areas such as content, information, and records management; workflow, and case management. 

With SpringCM, government agencies can quickly and cost-effectively deploy content management solutions to better serve constituents and improve efficiency in areas such as citizen services, correspondence management, Electronic Freedom of Information Act (EFOIA), and case management. Acumen Solutions has successfully completed hundreds of enterprise-class cloud computing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) projects and helped numerous Federal and State agencies weave cloud computing strategies into their enterprise architecture. Acumen Solutions brings commercial content management best practices to Federal agencies from experience with clients such as CableOne, Smithsonian Museum, Sprint/Nextel, and others.

"Public Sector agencies need new solutions to unlock the treasure trove of information that they keep on file. Cloud applications enable swifter availability for constituents and easier to use solutions for government employees," said Jay Tansing, Managing Director of Acumen Solutions Public Sector Practice. "Together, SpringCM and Acumen Solutions enable government entities to deploy applications faster, and realize value more quickly while keeping the total cost of ownership to a minimum."

"The pressure is on to deliver effective services, and President Obama's budget calls for greater focus on less expensive IT alternatives in government agencies as mandated through the Office of Management and Budget," said Steve Maier, General Manager of SpringCM Government Solutions Division. "Our partnership with Acumen helps these agencies to adhere to the new mandate, and get the benefit of improved efficiencies to meet increasing demands at lower costs."
