IGMAS Technologies Acheives High Honors in Microsoft’s Partner Program for Fourth Consecutive Year

IGMAS Technologies Earns Microsoft’s Distinguished Status by Obtaining Core Competencies: Server Platform, Systems Management, Identify and Security, Midmarket Solutions, as well as OEM Hardware Services, Portals and Collaboration, and Windows 7 Desktop Solutions
Los Angeles, CA — January 28, 2011 IGMAS Technologies, Inc. today announced it has earned the Silver Competencies in several categories in Microsoft’s Partner Program, recognizing IGMAS’ expertise and impact in the technology marketplace. With it’s acheivement, IGMAS has demonstrated expertise with Microsoft technologies and a proven ability to meet customers’ needs. Certified Microsoft Partners receive a rich set of benefits, including access, training and support, providing partners with a competitive advantage in the channel.“We are thrilled to have attained Microsoft’s several important core competencies in Microsfoft’s Partner program for the fourth straight year. This allows us to clearly promote our expertise and relationship with Microsoft to our customers”, said IGMAS Technologies, Inc. president Michael Breindel.  “The benefits provided through our Partner status with Microsoft will allow us to continue to enhance the offerings that we provide for customers.”

“Customers are looking for partner companies that can bridge the gap between their business demands and technology capabilities,” said Allison Watson, corporate vice president of the Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “They need to trust in a company that can act as an expert adviser for their long-term strategic technology plans. Microsoft Partners with designated competencies in core services, which have certified expertise and direct training and support from Microsoft, can build a positive customer experience with our technologies. Today, Microsoft recognizes IGMAS Technologies’ Partner status for demonstrating its expertise in providing customer satisfaction using Microsoft products and technology.”As one of the requirements for attaining such Partner status, IGMAS had to train and successfully acheive passing certification exams in Microsoft Competencies. Microsoft Competencies are designed to help differentiate a partner’s capabilities with specific Microsoft technologies to customers looking for a particular type of solution.

Each Competency has a unique set of requirements and benefits, formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the technology industry. Within select Competencies, there are Specializations that focus on specific solution areas that recognize deeper expertise within that Competency. Serving as a specialized path to earning those Competencies, Specializations give direct access to the tools and resources that support that specific area of focus.

Microsoft partners enrolled in the Server Platform and Systems Management Competencies have proven their proficiency in implementing solutions based on Microsoft’s Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008 Operating Systems, or Windows Small Business Server 2008 and Essential Business Server 2008. These implementations may include crafting solutions that connect Windows-based servers, PC locations and the Internet; installing a server farm; or building a small-business Windows Server stand-alone solution that includes file and print capabilities.

“We place tremendous value on our partners, who help us deliver solutions and applications to customers,” said Ward Ralston, group product manager for Windows Server at Microsoft Corp. “Solutions competencies provide an integrated partnering framework that recognizes an enterprise’s expertise and rewards it for the effect it has in the technology marketplace. It also allows companies to demonstrate for customers their broad knowledge of building wide-ranging solutions based on Microsoft technologies, such as setting up networks using Windows Server 2008 and the Windows Essential Server Solutions product line.”

The Igentify and Security Competency is designed to recognize the unique skills and requirements of partners specializing in delivering security-based solutions. Microsoft partners enrolled in this competency have proven their expertise in advanced security solutions to help protect customer information assets by building solutions such as security management and operations, anti-malware protection and network-edge security, and identity and access management solutions.

“Security is a priority for Microsoft, and we rely on our partners to help us deliver security-based solutions to our customers,” said Mark Hassall, director of Security and Access Product Management at Microsoft Corp. “As customers continue to automate business processes, solutions competencies such as this one enable our partners to better identify and showcase their security solutions skills to respond to increasing customer demands to better secure and optimize their infrastructure.”

“Our customers tell us that they want integrated solutions, and we are listening and delivering in a way that no one else is,” said John “JG” Chirapurath, Director of Marketing for the Identity and Security Division at Microsoft Corp. “By bringing together the platform, applications, identity infrastructure, and security and management to deliver integrated solutions, we’re ensuring our customer’s success by helping them to save time, reduce costs and protect their environment.”
The Microsoft Partner Program was launched in October 2003 and represents Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to the success of partners worldwide. The program offers a single, integrated partnering framework that recognizes partner expertise, rewards the total impact that partners have in the technology marketplace, and delivers more value to help partners’ businesses be successful.

IGMAS Technologies Provides Jenny Craig Inc. with an IT Makeover

Los Angeles, Ca — (December 25, 2007) Jenny Craig Inc. (JCI) has made a multimillion-dollar, multinational business of the healthy makeover. When JCI spokeswoman and former “Fat Actress” Kirstie Alley revealed her newly slimmed figure onOprah in Fall 2006, she embodied everything the company has done right. But behind the scene, outdated technology had been holding JCI back for far too long. All that was about to change. IGMAS Technologies, a national technology consultancy specializing in customized solutions for IT infrastructure projects, was giving Jenny Craig Inc. a major technological makeover.

Consider JCI’s technology “before” picture: computers running DOS applications and a WAN that “barely merited the name” in the words of CIO Decision’s Michael Ybarra. Individual Centres were disconnected from the company’s corporate IT resources, resulting in growing gaps of customer service; there was no connectivity fault-tolerance, so lost DSL connections meant lost productivity; the network was transferring only a portion of each Centre’s daily transaction information to the corporate offices, which meant JCI was missing valuable opportunities to look at customer-specific sales and marketing information; and the 3,500 users at JCI’s more than 600 Centres couldn’t communicate electronically, which slowed things down considerably for both staff and customers on a daily basis. It was time for the makeover experts to be made over themselves—and IGMAS promised to do the job with the kind of customized, flexible approach that JCI uses with its clients; understanding that to be effective and long-lasting, the makeover must be tailored to the individual.

IGMAS was brought on in March 2006 to provide a turnkey solution for handling design, acquisition, system integration, configuration, shipping, onsite installation and training for what became more than 10,000 pieces of equipment at more than 600 Centres throughout the continental United States, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Canada. Their task: Develop and deploy a set of new enterprise solutions that would make JCI operationally more efficient, provide greater centralized management of resources and lower ongoing support and maintenance costs. After a thorough needs assessment — including extensive system documentation of existing systems, one-on-one meetings with key personnel throughout the organization, and numerous Centre site surveys—IGMAS made design and process recommendations to move JCI to a new IT environment that would exceed corporate objectives.

IGMAS recommended a new wide-area network (WAN) that would connect systems across the organization, allowing JCI to move more customer data in less time, with no real additional cost. The Igmas recommendations meant JCI would be able to process more clients each day without additional staff or valuable retail space.  Additionally JCI would save on credit-card processing fees by authorizing over the high-speed WAN; and with a proposed telephone system modification in which Centre support calls could be routed across the network, the New Centre Infrastructure promised a substantial reduction in overall operating costs. Beyond all this, IGMAS proposed and integrated several fully automated failover and disaster-recovery technologies for the Centres. For the first time ever, Jenny Craig Inc. would have a reliable, streamlined, and fully connected network of Centres.

Together, JCI and IGMAS determined the best way to make such possibilities a reality, and by August 2006 IGMAS went live with beta testing at one Centre, followed by a pilot rollout of ten Centres in ten days later in November — just about the time Kirstie Alley was revealing her new bikini body on Oprah.

IGMAS’ project-management team worked closely with JCI’s staff and other business partners to ensure that the project ran smoothly and with minimal impact to JCI staff. They had one shot at each Centre to get the new infrastructure successfully deployed, and it had to be done after-hours so that JCI staff could keep serving customers during the day. IGMAS’ team of more than 30 trained engineers, project managers, and support staff worked quickly and efficiently in multiple cities at the same time, literally deploying new systems overnight — and catching a short nights sleep before training employees to use the new systems the next morning. IGMAS teams transformed on average of six Centres a night, five nights a week, with each team performing an intricate dance to smoothly coordinate vendors, products, JCI staff, and others. An IGMAS Help Desk was also made available from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily to make this a smooth transition for everyone involved.

Throughout the project, IGMAS responded quickly to unforeseen challenges, such as deploying last minute patches for the daylight-saving-time change, payroll application patches, updated User Training Material and others without delay. “Not being able to overcome these last minute obstacles in an effective and timely manner could derail an entire project,” notes IGMAS President Michael Breindel. But IGMAS’ national and international deployment experience and careful advance project planning allowed the IT staff at IGMAS to seamlessly navigate such challenges. “What sets us apart from most other vendors,” says Breindel, “is that planning, communication and execution is fully defined before implementation.” This Project Management approach reduces uncertainty, increases efficiency and minimizes negative impacts on the organization and the project.

By November 2007, the multi-million-dollar, multinational rollout was complete — on budget and on schedule! It may be a less flashy reveal than Kirstie Alley’s Oprah moment, but this behind-the-scenes makeover resulted in immediate cost savings at every JCI Centre in the network, and Jenny Craig now has a solid foundation in which to support both legacy and new custom applications in their rapidly expanding enterprise. With efficient, reliable, centralized IT now in place JCI has successfully completed the internal makeover of its Centre infrastructure.

Key SonicWALL Channel Partner IGMAS Technologies to Roll Out New IT Infrastructure for Over 500 Jenny Craig Centres

125_Jenny_logoSUNNYVALE, CALIF. – January 25, 2007 – SonicWALL, Inc. (NASDAQ:SNWL) today announced that Jenny Craig, one of the world’s largest weight management service companies, has chosen SonicWALL’s integrated managed security products to protect its many  Centres across North America.  National technology consulting and integration firm IGMAS Technologies, Inc. helped select SonicWALL technology as the security backbone for the updated network infrastructure, which it will deploy in Jenny Craig Centres over the next six months.

Supporting more than 3,000 employees and 500 Centres in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Jenny Craig’s previous network was approaching the limits of its capabilities. The company worked with IGMAS to design, test and install an upgraded Wide Area Network (WAN) in North America, incorporating new technologies in all aspects of the infrastructure, from state of the art servers and security products to updated applications . SonicWALL technology was chosen for its winning combination of dynamic wired and wireless security, robust connectivity, and easy-to-use management.

In place of the existing firewalls, IGMAS selected SonicWALL PRO and TZ Series deep packet inspection comprehensive appliances running Unified Threat Management services, plus SonicWALL’s Global Management System policy and management software for central management and monitoring running at the corporate datacenter.  “We chose the TZ 170 SP Wireless appliances, with dial-up failover capabilities for the Centres to provide an ultra-stable wide area network connection,” said Michael Breindel, president of IGMAS.  “The secure wireless capability means that we won’t need to run cabling in locations where wiring doesn’t exist, and we avoid the other usual tangle of cables by also using wireless printers in the Centres.  The objective is to provide easy-to-use technology that promotes productivity and leaves the field staff free to help their clients achieve personal well-being.”

“As our company continues to grow, we are increasingly aware of the productivity benefits of a stable, redundant, secure WAN to protect our business model,” says Alessandra (Allie) Nicoletti, Director of Strategy for Jenny Craig. “IGMAS have exceeded our expectations in designing a network solution that we hope will not only meet our current needs, but also support our future expansion plan. With its focus on ease of management and broad feature set, the SonicWALL technology is an excellent fit that allows us to provide creative solutions for our network and lower long-term costs.”

After a successful pilot in Jenny Craig’s local Centres, the company has established an aggressive rollout schedule which IGMAS will undertake over the next six months. At each of the 500 plus locations, IGMAS project staff will install and upgrade network equipment applications, printers and a variety of security products hosted by the SonicWALL TZ 170 SP Wireless firewall. These new SonicWall appliances provide dial-up failover for the Centres’ connections to the corporate WAN.

Each Centre connects over a WAN back to one of two SonicWALL PRO 5060 gigabit firewalls in a high-availability, failover configuration. IGMAS will also link the entire security backbone together using SonicWALL’s Global Management System (GMS) software so that Jenny Craig’s IT staff will be able centrally manage and deploy security policy configurations on the completed network.

Adds Alessandra (Allie) Nicoletti, “During the planning stages of this project, Jenny Craig was acquired by Nestlé.  Nestlé evaluated the project and not only approved all recommendations, but also gave the deployment a high priority. Even at this early stage, we view this as one of the most successful IT projects we have undertaken.”

“I have been involved in technology integration and consulting for many years and this project stands out as unique because of the excellent relationship we have enjoyed with the client.  It drives us to do everything we can to make this project exceed expectations,” added Michael Breindel.

IGMAS Technologies and SonicWall Team Together to Provide Security Solution

SHERATON ATLANTA HOTEL SELECTS SONICWALL CONTENT SECURITY MANAGER TO INCREASE EMPLOYEE PRODUCTIVITY

SonicWALL CSM 2100 Enhances Network Security and Productivity with Granular Control of Employee Internet Use

SUNNYVALE, Ca – June 12, 2006 – SonicWALL, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNWL) today announced that the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel has chosen SonicWALL to provide secure content management to increase user productivity and improve bandwidth utilization. The SonicWALL Content Security Manager (CSM) 2100 delivered real-time gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware and Internet filtering capabilities that delivered maximum network protection and localized control over Internet usage for Sheraton Atlanta’s estimated 100 users.  

Installed and managed by SonicWALL channel partner, IGMAS Technologies, the SonicWALL CSM 2100 sits behind Sheraton’s existing firewall providing an additional layer of security to protect against today’s most damaging Internet threats. The SonicWALL CSM 2100 has enabled the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel to filter inappropriate or unproductive Web sites, block .exe attachment files, instant messaging applications and streaming media, delivering a new level of visibility into Internet usage patterns and number and type of sites blocked.  

“We required the ability to develop and monitor localized policies for our needs at the Atlanta location. We were particularly impressed by the ease of installation and the interoperability with our current firewall solution,” said Mr. Hallett at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel. “Although planned as a preventative measure, we’ve seen an immediate improvement with the ability to monitor the sites being blocked. In addition, our bandwidth has been noticeably optimized which is providing us with faster network speeds. The added layer of security gives us piece of mind that our entire network has rock-solid protection against security threats.”

The SonicWALL CSM 2100 combines real-time gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware, powerful Internet filtering with granular, policy-based controls and instant messaging (IM), peer-to-peer (P2P) and multimedia controls for dynamic threat management capabilities with precise control over Internet usage. An affordable, appliance-based solution, the CSM 2100 CF integrates seamlessly into virtually any network topology to provide powerful, scalable, cost-effective Internet filtering.

“As a consultancy focused on hospitality and gaming, we are very aware of the unique requirements of these types of businesses. We suggested SonicWALL CSM 2100 for Sheraton’s Internet filtering needs because we knew the solution would provide the level of control that the Sheraton was looking for without a huge impact on current network infrastructure,” said Michael Breindel, President of IGMAS Technologies. “SonicWALL CSM 2100 is the ideal solution to upgrade security without the need to upgrade the entire firewall.”

IGMAS Gaming Plays Critical IT Role in Successful Conversion for Resorts East Chicago and Resorts International

LAS VEGAS, NV (May 1, 2005) – IGMAS Gaming, a division of IGMAS Technologies, Inc. announced the successful completion of its most recent IT conversion engagement with Resorts International/ Colony Resorts RIH Acquisitions, Inc. at the Resorts East Chicago Hotel and Casino. The engagement with Resorts International included mission-critical IT services such as Technology Project Management, Infrastructure Consulting and on-site technical engineering services. Product specialists and management were brought on-site to manage key deployment efforts including Active Directory, Wide Area Networking and Switching, desktop imaging and software distribution strategies, along with teams of desktop imaging and deployment resources. The Resorts East Chicago property was purchased by Colony Resorts RIH Acquisitions, Inc. from Harrah’s Entertainment on April 25th as part a $1.24 billion deal with Harrah’s and Caesars Entertainment.

“The Resorts East Chicago project offered us a number of challenges from an infrastructure perspective. We had been advised late in the project that, at cutover, the entire server farm and over 350 desktop PC’s would need to be reformatted using a Department of Defense (DOD) tool to wipe the hard drives clean of applications, data, and operating systems. We would then have 48 hours to rebuild everything for opening. This was on top of our other activities including bring up a WAN between our numerous other properties, migrating to a new mail system, and bringing several new applications on-line”, stated Marc Guarino, Vice President of IT for the Las Vegas Hilton who was responsible for the IT activities of this conversion. “We had been very pleased with the responsiveness and services that IGMAS Gaming provided to us throughout the conversion at the Las Vegas Hilton last year, and we turned to them again this year to help us through the unique challenges of this transition. IGMAS’ planning and the execution of their project plan to get all of this work done including the rebuilding of the site’s server farm and switching infrastructure within 48 hours on time and within budget was great! We could not have been more pleased.”

IGMAS President Michael Breindel indicated that while the conversion posed several unique technology and timing challenges, he was confident that he could bring together the best of their IT experience, project management, and the right resources to make this transition successful, and ultimately exceed expectations. “One of the real challenges we had was the window given to rebuild all of the infrastructure servers and workstations, each customized to the application or user’s specific needs. We knew we had to develop an aggressive project plan and make use of all the manufacturers’ deployment tools to meet our client’s expectations. Ultimately, the flexibility of Active Directory, Microsoft Office 2003, and the use of Symantec’s GhostCast Multi-Cast process proved to be invaluable. Multi-Cast enabled us to distribute multiple images of various types with customized operating systems all at one time. Ours was a great team effort that took quite a bit of planning and organization. All teams on-site were enthusiastic and were extremely focused to perform at their very best to make this a smooth and seamless conversion for Resorts. We are very delighted that the Colony organization continues to have the confidence and trust in our abilities and experience to guide them through these transitions.”

IGMAS Gaming Completes Successful Conversion Services Engagement with Colony Resorts LVH

LAS VEGAS, NV (August 20, 2004) – IGMAS Gaming, a division of IGMAS Technologies, Inc. announced the successful completion of its engagement with Colony Resorts LVH Acquisitions, Inc. at the Las Vegas Hilton. The engagement with the Las Vegas Hilton included outsourced IT services including project management, technical engineering resources, and on-going help desk services to the property and it team members. The Las Vegas Hilton was purchased by Colony Resorts LVH from Caesars Entertainment June 18th.

“We were very appreciative of the assistance and expertise that was provided to us from the IGMAS team in the areas of project management, network infrastructure design and consulting, network engineering resources, and help desk support services,” stated Colony Resorts LVH Executive Vice President of Finance, Bob Schaffhauser. IGMAS’ involvement, Schaffhauser continued, was “a fine example of personal commitment, perseverance, and diplomacy that raised the level of the entire project team’s performance”.

David Miller, IGMAS’ Vice President of Gaming and Hospitality Services indicated that outsourcing key roles is such efforts are becoming more the norm in today’s business environment. “It is our experience that many organizations are seeking outsourced services to assist with managing specialty projects, to supplement their own resources when additional staffing is needed, and to gain the necessary expertise and experience that is too costly to maintain with in-house staffing.”

Colony Resorts LVH will invest up to $67 million over a four-year period to renovate the hotel, including updates to the guest rooms, restaurants and casino area and will focus on developing convention business for the hotel. It has further entered into an agreement with Hilton Hotels Corporation pursuant to which the hotel will continue to use certain elements of the Hilton brand, primarily The Hilton Reservation System. The firm intends to continue the operation of the property as a hotel-casino, and may construct additional facilities on land that is currently unused.

LAS VEGAS, NV (February 3, 2002) – IGMAS Technologies, Inc. announced the completion of the strategic agreement with the Barona Valley Ranch Resort and Casino to provide outsourced IT services including project management and technical engineering resources to the property. Barona Valley Ranch Resort and Casino opened its new casino and hotel just north of San Diego, California in January 2003.

“We are honored and proud to provide our outsourcing services to the team at Barona Valley Ranch and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Barona in the years to come,” said David Miller, partner at IGMAS Technologies. “It is our experience that many more companies are choosing to seek outside services to assist with managing specialty projects, to supplement their own resources when additional staffing is needed, and to gain the necessary expertise and experience that is too costly to maintain with in-house staffing.”

“Our internal IT staff at Barona worked very closely with IGMAS to successfully plan this large technology initiative throughout our casino and hotel,” said Tony Deleon, Barona’s Executive Director of Information Technology. “We selected IGMAS for their experience with IT project management and deployment services as well as their experience in the gaming industry. Their participation in our project was critical to its success.”

The $260 million Barona Valley Ranch Resort & Casino expansion project was completed in January 2003. The project includes a world-class resort with 397 luxury guest rooms and suites, a 300,000 square foot casino, a lakefront wedding chapel, a full-service Golf Events Center, and the 18-hole championship Barona Creek Golf Club, rated the 4th best course in the state of California by Golfweek Magazine.

IGMAS Technologies, with offices in Las Vegas and Universal City, Calif., is a “results-oriented” technology consultancy specializing in the IT infrastructure and deployment needs of hospitality and gaming organizations. IGMAS provides network infrastructure design, project management, installation services, hardware and software procurement, and outsourced technical resources.
