BlueMetal Architects Announces Brian Short as Practice Director for the Boston office.

WATERTOWN, Mass., April 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- BlueMetal announces the recent addition of Brian Short as a Practice Director for the company's Open Source and Java Practice in the Boston office. In keeping with the company's philosophy of being the best in the market on the platforms and technologies that exactly meet the needs of our clients, the formal opening of this practice will enable BlueMetal to support the heterogeneous enterprise.

"BlueMetal's focus on the Modern Application is a significant step forward for enterprise customers. The Modern Application approach was created to articulate a services-based approach to software development and strategy that allows scalability, freedom of deployment, and compartmentalization through rich APIs, and this necessarily employs a wide range of technologies," Brian said. "Companies find themselves with diverse software stacks that increasingly employ a wide array of SaaS solutions which couple with internally hosted products and custom applications.  To deliver real solutions we need to draw on new tools."

"The  technical landscape is evolving and barriers are being broken at an unprecedented rate,"  said Craig Dillon, BlueMetal's President.  "We are building the next generation of applications.  It's extraordinary how technically diverse solutions have become.  We're seeing a strong trend towards platforms that contain a mixture of solutions, including open source and Java, on cloud platforms such as Microsoft Azure.  We welcome the addition of Brian to the team."

Brian has sixteen years of industry experience, both in the consulting and product development spaces and has done extensive work across a variety of architectures, including .NET and open source technologies.  Prior to joining BlueMetal, Brian was a senior manager at NorthPoint, where he led the Open Source team and the development of the Boston office.

"Brian brings a new dimension to BlueMetal's offerings." said Matt Jackson, General Manager for BlueMetal in Boston.  "He has depth in Open Source technologies, but still adheres to the core principles that make BlueMetal unique.  He seeks to understand our clients' needs before recommending a solution, he is active in the technology community and he is passionate about helping to develop the business in new and exciting ways."

"Our strategy is to understand the goals of the organization and to help them craft a vision of their digital future that meets those goals and positions the organization for potential opportunities," Brian said. "Just as the Modern Application allows a user to accomplish their goals no matter what the consuming platform is, BlueMetal is dedicated to delivering solutions, no matter what technologies our client is currently employing.

"The BlueMetal team is incredible and I'm extremely proud to be working with such a dedicated group of people. BlueMetal has a track record that's unparalleled and I'm proud to be working here."

Brian has a proven track record of both delivering creative, supportable solutions to clients and also leading and mentoring teams that are on the cutting edge of technology while maintaining high development standards and ensuring best practices are followed. Brian has a degree in Mathematics from the University of Florida.
