Sep 09, 2011 (07:09 PM EDT)


AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Apalytics Corporation, an emerging leader in IT crisis avoidance strategies, today announced its expansion into the commercial enterprise market, offering Critical Problem Resolution and IT Crisis Avoidance services, as well as a suite of IT management best practice development programs.

Apalytics currently has three government contracts, providing services to the US Department of Justice, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and US Central Command, the joint command responsible for operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.

"We are excited about our expansion into the commercial space," said Apalytics founder and Executive Analyst Bill Alderson. "And we expect to deliver the same value to our corporate clients as we have to our clients in the public sector."

In September 2001, Alderson responded to the Pentagon IT network recovery effort (see ABC News video at: http://bit.ly/oIkT6u) and has served as a consultant to senior US IT leadership during several network and application performance analysis engagements in Afghanistan and Iraq.

In 1989, Alderson founded Pine Mountain Group, where he developed Network General Sniffer training and, in conjunction with industry leaders, developed the Certified NetAnalyst® Program, certifying over 3000 professionals in 20 countries as Network and Application Forensic Professionals. Alderson has provided network forensics and IT crisis avoidance services to 75 of the Fortune 100 and has personally trained over 50,000 technology professionals.

"The real root cause of all critical problems is twofold," Alderson said. "You have the apparent, technical root cause; and you have the lack of process that allowed the problem to occur. Our best practice services are designed to obviate technical crisis."

Alderson has also held senior positions at CA Technologies and NetQoS, as well as positions Network General, and Lockheed Corporation. An accomplished thought leader, presenter and writer, Bill speaks compellingly on the importance of effective IT network management and publishes his written works for IT management at www.cio-tech.com and his writings for the working technologist at www.synsynack.com.

Based in Austin, Texas, Apalytics provides best-of-class Critical Problem Resolution and Network Architecture Documentation services to Global 2000 companies, governmental organizations, and other corporate clients whose businesses depend on the reliable performance of network-intrinsic applications. Their Technical Systemization™ operating capability development programs enable CIOs to integrate the myriad activities of multiple functional groups within their IT organizations while empowering technologists to deliver results that align with organizational goals.
