Premiere Business Partner zeroes in on role that IBM i on Power Systems played in Recology's making San Francisco a smarter, greener city.
Key Information Systems, a leading IT systems integrator and Premier IBM Business Partner based in Woodland Hills, CA, has won IBM PartnerWorld’s first Video Contest for business partners to share their best midsize business success story. Key Info’s winning video reports on how IBM servers are a crucial part of the information technology used by Recology, which provides the most advanced recycling programs in North America. Titled IBM, Key Info & Recology Building a Smarter & Greener Planet, the video is on YouTube.
“The implementation of the recycling and routing applications on the IBM i platform at Recology is helping San Francisco become a greener city … IBM, Key Info and Recology together are helping to build a smarter and greener planet.”
Key Info provides IT infrastructure and systems architecture solutions and services that focus on virtualization, IT security, server consolidation, storage management and business continuity.
Recology makes it possible for communities they serve to reduce, reuse, recycle, and Recologize(™). As pioneers in resource recovery, the company helps communities achieve ambitious goals and reduce landfill disposal. Recology undertakes numerous outreach and education programs to help people see garbage isn’t garbage at all but a mix of resources that should be reused and recycled.
In the video, Lief Morin, president, Key Info, stated: “The implementation of the recycling and routing applications on the IBM iSeries platform at Recology is helping San Francisco become a greener city … IBM, Key Info and Recology together are helping to build a smarter and greener planet.”
Pete Elliot, director of Marketing at Key Info, said, “We have long admired the pioneering achieved by Recology. It was a distinct privilege for our integration specialists to work with IBM and the Recology IT group to bring the advantages of IBM’s Power servers to the work being done at Recology.”
Robert Reed, public relations manager at Recology, said, “New scientific data shows that recycling, especially composting, are more effective at helping protect the environment than previously known. We are working with Key Info and IBM to manage our systems to provide programs that make recycling easy for our customers and to provide the most cost-effective services possible.”
Bill Aylward, producer, director and "alchemist" at Fred+Ethel Productions in New York City that produced the video, said: "We were fortunate to craft the video story. In fact, it was an honor to work with Robert Reed of Recology and Pete Elliot of Key Info on this video to tell the story about how these companies worked together to bring IBM Server technology to the critical field of resource recovery. IBM, Key Info, and Recology are truly helping to build a smarter and greener planet.”
Elliot added, “Recology is an amazing recycler of just about everything for the people of San Francisco and showing the story of how they use IBM Power server technology to support their operation was a great story that we had to tell. Both Robert Reed and Bill Aylward made this project a labor of love.”
IBM’s two-minute video contest focused on how the IBM Business Partner added value to a midsize business using cloud computing, IT security, virtualization, CRM or business analytics technology. Ten finalists were selected by IBM for recognition, with the entry by Key Info rated the best of all entries.
As the contest winner, Key Info receives social media and press exposure from IBM, and an invitation to a speaking engagement at an IBM event.
Key Info’s IT integration service to support Recology’s operation is the most recent in a long history of such projects that underscore Key Info’s commitment to environmental, community, local charity and educational programs.
