They also announced that they will be working with the City of Boston's Department of Neighborhood Development to implement aSalesforce.com cloud computing solution so that their Office of Business Development (OBD) can better manage their interaction with Boston's small business community and to streamline its internal reporting and transparency.

"By setting up a Boston office, Acumen Solutions is adding to the city's already strong economy and bringing new jobs to the area," said Rafael Carbonell, Deputy Director for the Department of Neighborhood Development's Office of Business Development. "The cloud computing work that they are doing for us will help us to better serve our constituents in Boston's small business community."

The OBD will link its newly developed Salesforce.com instance with that of Boston Main Streets and the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) who currently use this platform internally. The OBD is also partnering with other city agencies to launch a new online portal for businesses in Boston, and plans to use Salesforce.com as the support system for this portal. The mayor's office is running an application development contest for citizens to help improve municipal government where they will use Salesforce.com to track the submissions.

"Boston is a great city and we are proud to be opening a Boston office, which will strengthen support for our client base in the New England area," said David Joubran, CEO of Acumen Solutions. "Boston has many Global 1000 enterprises in sectors that we serve such as financial services, insurance, healthcare, government, technology and education. In addition to creating jobs, Acumen Solutions will provide a breadth of business strategy and technology solutions for those large enterprises in New England who are leading the way in more effective IT delivery."
