Introducing a new generation of Power Systems built for big data and cloud–and a Linux-based ecosystem

Yesterday, STG launched its first IBM signature moment as we debut a new generation of Power Systems based on POWER8 technology. This announcement is not simply an extension of our existing capabilities, it is a game-changer in helping you tap more opportunities and win:

  • Big data. Get insights up to 50 times faster with systems designed for big data
  • Cloud. Achieve better economics for scale-out data and cloud infrastructures
  • Open innovation. Revolutionizes the way IT is created and consumed

Some of the differentiating value propositions mentioned during the press & analyst relations conference include:

  • POWER8 technology running Cognos BI and DB2 with BLU acceleration delivers insights 50x faster than Ivy Bridge
  • Clients running Big Insights for big data will benefit from double the system capacity of the best x86 published result
  • Linux on POWER8 provides 58% lower TCA and requires 66% fewer systems & cores compared to Linux on x86, and offers greater reliability and resiliency.
  • Clients running traditional ERP, such as SAP, will enjoy the benefits of more than 2X more users per core with POWER8 versus the competition, reducing investment and operational costs.

And if budget is a challenge, the financing for Power Systems helps clients remake their IT Infrastructure and drive business transformation with less financial risk.

Critical Vulnerability Alert


NetApp Introduces New All-Flash Array and Performance-Optimized Enterprise Storage Systems


Erick Bacallao joined Champion Solutions Group in 2015 after a career of Software Development in Cuba at the National Cancer Care Institute of Cuba, followed by moving to the States with allAware.


Champion acquired allAware and its properties and Erick has utilized his extensive background and expertise in IT and Software Development to rise to VP of Product Development in less than 5 years. During this time, Erick has been involved with key projects that led to the launch of numerous products including CSP Boss, Inscape platform and 365 Productivity Insights.


Erick has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Havana. He won Gold Medals for Programming from the Ministry of Education in Cuba, and he is certainly still a Gold Medalist for Champion!


As President and CEO, Chris is responsible for the development of key strategic alliances and solution portfolio. He leads Champion’s go-to market and execution strategies for integrated offerings in the cloud, in security, and in digital infrastructure, always focusing on improving the customer experience and driving transformative business outcomes.


He also aligns key partner initiatives with company strategy and oversees corporate marketing and messaging to gain mindshare with customers and partners. It’s his vision and innovativeness that have catapulted Champion up the ranks to become a $100M+ organization—and one of the most respected solution providers in the industry.


Over the past two decades, Chris has also focused on mergers and acquisitions, as well as innovative product development. He is the original founder and an active member on the Board of Managed Maintenance, Inc., a SAAS provider and consulting firm that utilizes their award-winning One-View Portal to help the IT Channel and its customers manage their IT Maintenance.


Chris is also the original founder and chief strategist behind one of the original storage cloud providers, Storage Access / BluePoint. During the course of a few short years, he had raised $20M and took that company public on the Toronto Stock Exchange. It has since been acquired by Pomeroy.


In 2012, Chris led the acquisition of MessageOps and continued the product development and worldwide launch of its premier SAAS, 365 Command. Built on Microsoft Azure, 365 Command is currently managing over 1 million seats of Microsoft’s Office 365. After achieving this phenomenal milestone, 365 Command and other MessageOps O365 utilities were sold to Kaseya.


Over the past 35 years, Chris as worked tirelessly to not only advance his own career, but those of his employees. In addition to leading a $100M organization, Chris can also be found sitting with sales teams, cold calling and coaching, and validating why Champion has been listed on Best Places to Work by both South Florida Business Journal and Computerworld.

Ultimately, the success garnered by Champion Solutions Group, its associated companies, and their employees is due in large part to the leadership of its President and CEO. Perhaps the most fitting award Chris has earned is South Florida Business Journal’s 2013 Ultimate CEO Award.
