Flagship Solutions Group Wins 2012 IBM Beacon Award for Miami Dolphins Smarter Stadium Solution

Boca Raton, March 2, 2012

Flagship Solutions Group, based out of Boca Raton, was just selected as a 2012 Beacon Award Winner for their Cloud Computing solution for the Miami Dolphins. This honor is awarded each year to a select number of IBM Business Partners to recognize information technology excellence, commitment to skills attainment, industry knowledge and innovative solutions based on IBM technology and services.

Flagship implemented a “Smarter Stadium” Intelligent Operations Center, which is a cloud based solution. It delivers a “Smarter Stadium” by integrating physical and digital infrastructure to provide a better fan experience focusing on premium features and services. With a centralized integrated control panel, it provides an enterprise view of stadium systems and departments and aggregates both digital and physical systems.

According to Mark Wyllie, CEO of Flagship, “Even the newly built Cowboys stadium doesn’t have an integrated system that provides this solution. Most stadiums have implemented point solutions from different companies that do not necessarily integrate. We are proud to be an innovator in Cloud Computing.”

The Beacon Awards are a central and vital element of IBM’s Business Partner recognition program. Announced at the IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference in New Orleans, and selected by leading industry influencers and IBM executives from among hundreds of nominations, IBM’s Beacon Awards recognize a select number of IBM Business Partners who have demonstrated business excellence in delivering IBM-based solutions resulting in client transformation and business growth. This year’s awards recognized Business Partner achievements across 27 award categories.

“We congratulate Flagship Solutions Group on winning the Beacon Award for Cloud Computing and demonstrating their ability to provide value by transforming the way the Dolphins manage their stadium,” said Mark Hennessy, general manager, IBM Global Business Partners and Midmarket.
