Eze App Cloud Debuts, Delivers ONE Cloud Platform

Posted by Mary Beth Hamilton on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

HEze App Cloud - hedge fund cloud platformave we mentioned we dig the cloud? Well we do and we are happy to introduce you to the newest addition to our cloud family – Eze App Cloud.
 
Weighing in at 60+ applications, Eze App Cloud comes to us from the Eze Private Cloud and is tailor made for application vendors servicing hedge fund and investment management firms.
 
The App Cloud has been a long time in the making and aims to address many challenges, including the need for a central, consolidated cloud platform to run all hedge fund applications and IT services.  With adoption of cloud services growing, there are many disparate cloud platforms with varying degrees of quality and customization.  We are increasingly seeing clients challenged to integrate applications (i.e. OMS, Risk, CRM) all running on different cloud platforms and networks.  The cloud is supposed to simplify operations, not make them more difficult.
 
Eze App Cloud is prepared (and designed) to be the ONE cloud platform for everything a hedge fund needs.

What Makes a Hedge Fund IT Provider Proud?

Posted by Mary Beth Hamilton on Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Hedge Fund IT AwardsAnytime I write a self-promotional (i.e. Eze Castle Integration-focused) article on Hedge IT I feel the need to add the caveat that we try really hard to make all our articles educational.  However, sometimes pride gets in the way and we have to share with you our proudest accomplishments. 

To that end, today’s post is going to be focused on blowing our own horn about the award-winning streak the company has been on.   These awards are a direct reflection of our amazing employees.

Proud moment #1: Winning the Help Desk Institute Team Excellence Award for External Support.  This award recognized our world-class help desk organization for their outstanding client support.  In winning this award, we joined a very elite group that includes Dell Perot Systems, EDS and Novell as previous winners.  Anyone who has dialed into our help desk knows our team is truly deserving of this award.

Clouds of Change for IT Pros: Cloud Admin's the new Sys Admin

Posted by Mary Beth Hamilton on Thursday, April 12th, 2012

On most days if you asked what I was doing on that exact day two years prior I wouldn’t be able to tell you, but today is different. Today is the second birthday for Hedge IT, our sweet, informative blog. So I know exactly what I was doing two years ago – I was writing and posting our first Hedge IT article, aptly titled “Welcome to Hedge IT.”

birthday cakeSticking with the theme of ‘welcome to…’ and giving a node to our upcoming Hedge Fund Cloud Summit, today’s post is a welcome to the changing world of IT – now that the business world is going to the cloud.

Paradigm shifts are commonplace in the IT world. When talking to an IT veteran about cloud, he/she will likely reflect on the move from centralized computing (mainframes/mini-computers) to decentralized computing (Windows NT/Novell) and now back to centralized computing with the cloud.
