On-Demand Webinar: How to Accelerate Your Move to Microsoft Azure

Cut your cloud planning and migration time in half!
Whether you have already begun your transition to the cloud or are planning to get started, this webinar can help save you time and money. Speakers from Microsoft and Prosum share a proven approach for building a cloud action plan, and demonstrate tools to quickly and effectively prioritize and size workload migrations to ensure maximum business impact.

Laptop Donations for School in Nepal

While helping clients discover technology solutions is Prosum’s expertise, we are also passionate about helping the children of Nepal. So when we discovered a need for laptops in empty school computer labs we knew we wanted to help.

And help we did.

Azure OMS Automation

Cloud isn’t just a buzz word anymore. We all are using Cloud one way or other. And in this cloud race, Microsoft has done a tremendous job of building an entire stack of offerings and platforms in Azure. Some of the Azure Cloud solutions include the ability to build virtual data centers, migrate on-prem data centers to “Infrastructure as a Service” platform, run disaster recovery, enable business continuity, or migrate to other Microsoft Cloud platform offerings (i.e. O365).

As you migrate or deploy more workloads, especially around Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and Platform as a service (PaaS) platforms, administration, and management optimization opportunities emerge due to the manual configuration and administration to keep things in order.

L.A. Works Day of Service 2015

This past weekend Prosum volunteered at L.A. Works Day 2015, Los Angeles’ largest day of service! This year’s day of service was a lovely mix of 300 gallons of paint, 40 yards of mulch, 200 shovels and over a thousand corporate and community volunteers who came together to transform South East L.A!

Team Prosum arrived at the event bright and early to help the event run smoothly by setting up tables, chairs, and signage.

Get Your IT Flowing

Several years ago, I met Ken Venner, who, at the time, was CIO of Broadcom. Ken talked about IT and corporate services being “like air” – something that simply flows around you unnoticed and unobtrusive, enabling everything you do. These traits describe what I call “Utility level IT”: neither creating obstacles for your business nor invigorating it with increased efficiency.

Is Your IT Department Holding Your Business Hostage?

In my last article, I outlined four levels you can use to measure each of your departments’ operations: Obstacle, Utility, Enabler and Differentiator. Did you discover that your IT department is operating at the ‘Obstacle’ Level? Then there’s a good chance you are in an all-too-common situation: the IT hostage crisis.

S.T.E.A.M. Resume Workshop

Prosum hosted a resume writing workshop for the Roosevelt High School’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Pathways and i.am College Track program. Over 20 students attended the workshop, undeterred by the prom festivities the night before!

Mentors from Prosum discussed possible career paths in STEAM and also shared their own stories.

S.T.E.A.M. Interview Workshop

Team Prosum returned to Roosevelt High School to host an interactive Interview Workshop for nearly 30 STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) students. Prosum mentors prepared the students for mock interviews by providing examples of appropriate interview attire and demeanor.

The Salvation Army

On Saturday morning, 16 Prosum volunteers went to the Salvation Army Bell Shelter to help them fulfill The Salvation Army promise of “Doing the Most Good.” Synonymously, the meaning of the Latin word “Prosum” is “to do good.” Our similar goals set us up for a successful and rewarding experience.

Rethink Your Departments

Offices have long had ‘fronts’ and ‘backs.’ The front is what the customers see: Sales, Customer Service, Leadership, etc. The back is the operational stuff: HR, IT, Finance, etc. You expect your front office to lead, innovate and discover new horizons.
