We help clients properly leverage cloud computing and big data as part of their IT infrastructure, platform, software, and data intelligence deployments and migrations.

Chateaux offers several services that enable you to develop a cloud strategy and integrate cloud-based solutions for measurable ROI.

Cloud Computing is both a technology and business platform for growth. We focus on your business challenges and goals, and creates solutions that combine the best of traditional and emerging technology. We help you understand when the use of cloud computing makes sense, and help you implement cloud computing with our best practices and reference architecture.

Our services can help you:

  • Identify and securely deploy applications across public, private, or hybrid cloud infrastructures
  • Automate scale up/down of cloud-based resources
  • Set up development/test cloud application environments
  • Disaster recovery and business continuity for cloud applications
  • Extend on-premise infrastructure capacity to the cloud for a limited time (Cloud Bursting)
Big Data is more than just collecting large amounts of structured and unstructured data from any number of defined and dynamic sources (such as physician notes, referrals, and discharge summaries). It also involves leveraging the power of cloud computing to analyze this large amount of data and collaborate around it in near real time, so that you can obtain key insights about your patients, staff, and programs.

Unlocking the value contained within Big Data requires a solid strategic vision and careful preparation, and we can help you get there.

Chateaux helps organizations focus on both the business value and the technology of Big Data. We can help you succeed over the long term by keeping you in line and focused on the end goal, extending your infrastructure if necessary, and guiding you to your destination. Our services can help you:

  • Collect, analyze, and act on data from multiple sources, both internal and social media platforms such as Twitter, blogs, shopping, etc.
  • Extend enterprise business intelligence capabilities to Apache Hadoop and other cloud databases
  • Increase transparency of social media activity (corporate web site activity, collateral downloads, Twitter posts, online comments, etc.) from your prospects and customers

Our proprietary lean architecture methodology contributes to all of our projects, making them better, faster, and cheaper. But as important, we ensure that projects appropriately contribute to the lean architecture initiative.

Chateaux won with flying colors because of their long history working with BusinessObjects, dating back to before it was acquired by SAP. I would highly recommend the Chateaux team for any SAP endeavors; the entire experience was unsurpassed by any other vendor we have worked with, from installation, to optimization, to training.

There are three points regarding Chateaux that I’d really like to highlight: their commitment to a successful project; their level of expertise and ability to overcome obstacles; and their professionalism.
Cindy Capodagli, VP Operational Effectiveness, OCE North America
Throughout my time at Dannon, first leading the Business Intelligence group and then our transformational programs, Chateaux Software has proven to be an invaluable resource. They have brought me expertise at the strategic level, in helping lay out an Enterprise Architecture in these areas, as well as detailed, competent implementation resources to help us realize these goals. Specifically Chateaux’s work in the areas of Trade Promotion Management, Demand Planning and integration of syndicated data has helped us realize our implementation of Advanced Sales and Operations Planning and brought substantial benefit to the company. Moreover, all of the people I know from Chateaux, from the CEO Ken Zimmerman through their implementation specialists, have been consummate professionals and very easy to do business with. I highly recommend this company for your Enterprise Architecture, Business Intelligence and Data Architecture needs.
