Systems Engineering "Lunch" & Learn
Cloud First, Mobile First - a Microsoft Road Map
Behind the leadership of a dynamic, new CEO, Microsoft is embracing a strategy of "Cloud First, Mobile First." The new strategy acknowledges that the world of personal computers and Microsoft Windows is increasingly being replaced by mobile devices and cloud computing. As part of this strategy, Microsoft has professed a commitment to making Microsoft applications run across multiple device platforms. To back it up, the company recently introduced Office 365 for iPad, but has acknowledged that Office 365 is 'just the tip of the iceberg.'
So, what does Cloud First, Mobile First mean for your business?
Enjoy an excellent lunch in Portland or appetizers in Portsmouth with business colleagues and learn what the "magical coming together of the cloud and mobile" means for your business and how to position for success in a rapidly changing IT landscape. Microsoft's Chris Large and Stephen Deming will be on hand to share Microsoft's emerging roadmap and innovation agenda.

- Systems Engineering CIO outsourcing has helped us align ourselves more closely with our different business units. That's been a very important transition for us. - Mark Weatherby- Director of IT- Goodwill Industries www.ginne.org
- I have a lot of trust in these guys. They're a key partner because they play a very important part in what we do. Strategically, they're a resource. Technically, they're a resource. I look to them to play a key role, not just to be a simple cost center that we're paying every month to do this or that. - Keith Gosselin- IT Officer of Biddeford Savings Bank biddefordsavings.com
- They are dealing with other banks and financial institutions so they see things I don't necessarily see. They understand the needs of financial institutions and they take our needs seriously. - Keith Gosselin- IT Officer of Biddeford Savings Bank biddefordsavings.com
- We had a thunderstorm hit us on a Friday night. It blew out all our outlets and took out our entire network. Systems Engineering came in that night and worked through the weekend. They had everything back up and running before everyone came in on Monday morning. That's why I say Systems Engineering gives you peace of mind. - Ralph Hendrix- COO of Macdonald Page & Co. www.Macpage.com
- Financially, you could never train or certify everyone on every single product we have here. If we did, my training budget would be 5-6 times larger than it is. That's where Systems Engineering comes in. - Mark Weatherby- Director of IT- Goodwill Industries www.ginne.org
- I don't know of any other supplier that has the depth and breadth that Systems Engineering has; from programmers, to Cisco engineers, VMware engineers, Microsoft engineers no one else has that kind of expertise on tap. - Darryl Hendricks- Director of Information Technology- Preti Flaherty
- You guys really came through for us this weekend. You not only came in on Saturday and helped me with a problem, but then we had a more catastrophic failure. (catastrophic would not be one of your terms). Our system was down: busy week-end, credit cards, file server, you name it. You came back in Sunday, Pronto, which I really needed and got us straightened out. It was terrific! Kudos to Systems Engineering for doing such a great job. - Casco Bay Lines www.cascobaylines.com
- We've got a solid network with minimal issues. They do quality work and are a great, dedicated group of people. - Keith Gosselin- IT Officer of Biddeford Savings Bank
- Systems Engineering works with me on my goals. They don't try and sell me things I don't need. They don't push technologies that don't fit. They listen to me and give me suggestions and recommendations. If they think I'm missing something, they are going to tell me. It's a partnership that works to achieve the firm's goals. For us, it's about building long-term relationships and working together to solve problems - Darryl Hendricks- Director of Information Technology- Preti Flaherty
- We hired Systems Engineering because we knew that they were an organization that could keep us ahead of the curve. They brought over some very bright, hardworking trustworthy people to help us solve some highly critical IT issues. When it comes to client relationships, Systems Engineering conducts their business in a very similar way to the way we conduct ours. In other words, I feel as if I gained a partner. - Teresa M. Esposito COO/CFO of H.M. Payson & Co.
- These are people who truly care about their customers. That's a breath of fresh air in this world. - Mark Weatherby- Director of IT- Goodwill Industries www.ginne.org
- I've dealt with a lot of engineers from different organizations, and these guys at Systems Engineering are just the best. I know whenever they come over to fix anything, it's going to get fixed. I never had that reassuring feeling with other vendors. - Mark Weatherby- Director of IT- Goodwill Industries www.ginne.org
- Like other nonprofit organizations with a limited staff and budget, it's always a challenge; there's less money for equipment, software, and manpower. Systems helped us by supplementing our staff and providing critical care support. - Mark Weatherby- Director of IT- Goodwill Industries www.ginne.org
- We rely on technology 24/7 to be competitive in our marketplace. Years ago, I could give somebody a 13-column pad and a pencil and a calculator, and they were up and running. Those days are long gone. The importance of technology to my business on a 1-to-10 scale is a 10. - Ralph Hendrix- COO of Macdonald Page & Co. www.Macpage.com
- I sleep better at night knowing we have a local technology partner with the resources of Cisco behind them. That makes me feel pretty good. - Keith Gosselin- IT Officer of Biddeford Savings Bank biddefordsavings.com
- With Systems Engineering it's about the relationship. We've been burned by other vendors; to them it was more about shoehorning in their products and services into our environment. Systems tries to help supplement whatever you might been lacking; whether that's manpower or some certain expertise, but they never try to force you into things. - Mark Weatherby- Director of IT- Goodwill Industries www.ginne.org
