Orion Forges New Technology Partnership With Orchestrate

Integrated Services Between the two Technology Firms Will Bring New Efficiencies to Advisors

OMAHA, Neb. and DES MOINES, Iowa, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Orion Advisor Services, LLC ("Orion"), a premier portfolio accounting service provider, announced today that it has integrated services with Orchestrate, LLC ("Orchestrate"), the creator of ProcessComposer®, in a partnership to leverage both firms' technology built by advisors for advisors.

Both Orion and Orchestrate were originally created by investment advisory firms searching for technology solutions to better enable their respective firm's growth and service models.  In their quest to deliver their technologies to additional advisory firms, Orion and Orchestrate have embedded their technologies inside Salesforce's AppExchange, and have now entered into agreements to leverage each other's respective technologies.

Orion's integration with ProcessComposer provides advisors with dozens of ready-to-go workflows, streamlining repeatable tasks ranging from client meeting preparation to executing trades and rebalancing.  In addition, Foster Group Inc., the independent, fee-only advisory firm where Orchestrate originated, is currently implementing the Orion portfolio accounting system to support its portfolio accounting needs.

"Through each of these integrations, our firms have collectively pulled together the pieces of the technology puzzle that once created inefficiencies for advisors," said Travis Rychnovsky, Chief Executive Officer and President of Orchestrate. "The evolution of advisor-centric technology allows advisors to gain mutual efficiencies in order to better focus on the needs of clients, and these partnerships are a major stepping stone toward achieving that objective."

ProcessComposer, a Salesforce CRM product, is a robust workflow tool designed with the financial services industry in mind, and also serves a wide variety of other service-heavy industries. It is a smart engine designed to compose and execute even the most complex processes.

"Our advisors will immediately reap the benefits of integrating ProcessComposer into their workflows," said Eric Clarke, President of Orion.  "Our firms have taken paths similar to this partnership through a collective realization that the best technologies to help advisors are those created by advisors."

The partnership stems from two technology firms' shared philosophy that began as the IT operations of RIAs, which are now aligned to leverage their unique expertise and make practices scalable. Orion was started in 1999 to address the needs of its sister company, CLS Investments, LLC ("CLS"), a professional money management firm and SEC Registered Investment Adviser. CLS will be implementing ProcessComposer within the first few months of this year.

Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.

As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets.

In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Derek Tumulak, Vice President of Product Management at Vormetric, will discuss how to address data security in cloud and Big Data environments so that your organization isn’t next week’s data breach headline.

In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Jason Cumberland, Vice President, SaaS Solutions at Dimension Data, will give the audience an understanding of common mistakes businesses make when transitioning to SaaS; how to avoid them; and how to build a profitable and scalable SaaS business.

By enabling new approaches to service delivery, cloud and DevOps together are delivering even greater speed, agility, and efficiency. No wonder leading innovators are adopting DevOps and cloud together!

Enterprises require the performance, agility and on-demand access of the public cloud, and the management, security and compatibility of the private cloud. The solution? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Simone Brunozzi, VP and Chief Technologist(global role) for VMware, will explore how to unlock the power of the hybrid cloud and the steps to get there. He'll discuss the challenges that conventional approaches to both public and private cloud computing, and outline the tough decisions that must be made to accelerate the journey to the hybrid cloud. As part of the transition, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service model will enable enterprise IT to build services beyond their data center while owning what gets moved, when to move it, and for how long. IT can then move forward on what matters most to the organization that it supports – availability, agility and efficiency.
Every healthy ecosystem is diverse. This is especially true in cloud ecosystems, where portability and interoperability are more important than old enterprise models of proprietary ownership. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical/Ubuntu, will discuss how single vendors used to take the lead in creating and delivering technology, but in a cloud economy, where users want tools of their preference, when and where they need them, it makes no sense.
The 15th International Cloud Expo has just expanded its conference program, to bring together Cloud Computing, APM, APIs, Security, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps and WebRTC at one location.
