Dupler said the MTP acquisition is a game changer that provides GreenPages with a strong managed services foundation to "leverage and innovate" by adding managed services around virtualized and cloud environments. "We're in the process of stabilizing that initiative, integrating it and driving it forward," he said.
Even with its cloud muscle, GreenPages is a company in transition continuing to maintain its technology procurement business as its moves to full fledged consulting/professional services organization advising customers on virtualization and cloud business strategies, said Dupler.
"We're continuing to evolve and become a more robust organization," he said. "An organization that customers look at as a professional services, consulting, integration organization that can assess IT environments and build out long-term IT strategies for the next three to five years."
Dupler said the cloud phenomenon is happening faster than anticipated and that IT organizations that craft strategies without a cloud view are being "foolhardy."
"It is going to happen," said Dupler. "There is no turning back at this point. Cloud computing is absolutely changing the status quo of computing. It is changing IT environments, policies and procedures and breaking down silos in operating units and organizations."
Dupler said GreenPages' aim is to cut through all of the manufacturer cloud hype to provide the guidance and technology skills to help IT executives come to grips with the challenges posed by the cloud revolution.
One of GreenPages' defining characteristics is that it is broadly cross certified in all of the major vendor offerings, said Dupler. "We can go in and assess an IT environment and don't have to recommend a single technology," he said.
Dupler said that on every project that GreenPages is working on it is looking at the "big picture" with a vision of moving customers to "100 percent virtualized environments and the cloud so that we are making sure you are building toward the future instead of perpetuating the past."
