Annapolis hosting firm targets health IT

Posted: Tuesday, April 2, 2013 11:00 am

By SHANTEÉ WOODARDS

John Criswell needed a secure way to store sensitive client health data with around-the-clock access.

His Annapolis health care analytics company, Pulse8, lists insurers, assisted living facilities and health exchanges as its clientele. Pulse8 considered building its own data center, renting space elsewhere or using a hybrid of the two.

Pulse8 decided to host the services off site and after a “comprehensive evaluation” chose Annapolis-based Sidus BioData to handle its remote storage operations.

"In the end, we thought it made the most sense to deal with experts in this area that really understand the compliance (standards), that have all the certification and have the 24-7 security," Criswell said.

Sidus BioData has targeted firms like Criswell's for the past four years. The company falls under the Sidus Data umbrella, which hosts data for business and government clients.

Seeds 4 Success Receives Early Holiday Gift From Sidus Design

Until now, Seeds 4 Success (S4S), a four year-old grassroots organization headquartered in the Eastport Community Center, had limited website capabilities and preferred to spend its money helping children and families living in Annapolis public and subsidized housing communities.  Upon hearing of the need for an improved website, Sidus Design stepped in, free of any charge and completely overhauled S4S’ website.  Sidus Design’s CEO Jason Silva explained:  “We were thrilled to support Seeds 4 Success.  Doing so fits with Sidus’ mission to help local organizations that provide educational opportunities to disadvantaged youths.  Our goal was to develop a site that is easily navigable by the busy S4S staff and board.  It needed to be simple to manage.  We think the end result is a well-crafted design that is aesthetically effective and true to S4S’ core mission.” Seeds 4 Success Executive Director Jessica Snell-Johns agreed: “Having such a professional, functional and easy-to-use website is a huge leap forward in our organizational capacity. This eye-catching site developed by Sidus exceeded our expectations in every way.  It allows us to effectively communicate our story of what we do and how far we have come– from a loosely defined program serving 10 girls to an award-winning nonprofit with three programs serving 50 girls and boys and their families. Of course, we’re hopeful that we’ll attract more donors and volunteers who are looking to be part of a dynamic nonprofit that equips kids with knowledge, services, experiences and relationships that will help them grow into successful, healthy and contributing adults.  Log on to www.S4Sannapolis.org and see for yourself!”

Annapolis-Based Technology Firm Gives Back To Severna Park

From "Severna Park Voice" 
 
At a time when the news is saturated with disturbing stories of corporate greed, it’s refreshing to hear about a company that works diligently to contribute to the community.

Sidus Data, an Annapolis corporation that provides managed web hosting, design and consulting, launched its Sidus Shares program to benefit local not-for-profit organizations. Sidus has contributed almost $750,000 in donations and gifts since the program’s inception in 1999, which primarily benefit wounded veterans, organizations that employ the disadvantaged or disabled, and local education initiatives.

Sidus CEO and Co-founder Jason Silva explained how beneficiaries are selected. “We choose local nonprofits that are looking to improve the lives of others,” he said. While their focus is local, they also serve chapters of national charities like the Wounded Warriors Foundation and the American Heart Association.

Other organizations served by Sidus Shares web development and hosting include Opportunity Builders, Inc., Maryland Therapeutic Riding, Anne Arundel Community Action Agency, Seeds 4 Success, Anne Arundel Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Severna Park High School, Severna Park High School Falcon Athletic Boosters and others. “We help them establish their websites on a pro-bono basis,” stated Silva.

Sidus CEO Weighs in on the Cloud Computing Trend

By Mark R. Smith, Editor-in-Chief
Business Monthly Newspaper

Cloud computing. It can be a somewhat nebulous term, a new-ish catch-all that has been embraced by the information technology (IT) industry as technology continues its forward march.
