SS&G Doubles Size In Chicagoland

Firm surpasses 500 professionals

SKOKIE, Ill., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SS&G is pleased to announce its merger with Silver, Lerner, Schwartz & Fertel (SLSF), a professional accounting and business planning firm serving the Chicago metropolitan area.

The merger adds 45 professionals, doubling its number in the Chicagoland market. 

SS&G's roster now surpasses 500 professionals for the first time in its history. The addition marks the third merger in the Chicagoland marketplace. The first occurred in 2010 with the addition of the Des Plaines office, followed by SS&G's downtown Chicago office in 2011. Michael L. Perlman, SLSF's managing partner, will serve as managing director of SS&G's newest office in Skokie, Ill., and will lead its Chicagoland operations.

"SLSF is a great firm with terrific clients, and we're excited to begin a new year with such a stellar group," said Gary Shamis, managing director of SS&G. "When we entered the market in October 2010, we naturally planned for growth. But the rate at which we've experienced it has surpassed all expectations."

The merger will considerably enhance SS&G's restaurant, health care, real estate, and nonprofit practices and provide SLSF clients additional value.

"SS&G and SLSF have similar service-oriented, client-focused, employee-centric cultures," Perlman said. "Those factors - combined with the fact we're both entrepreneurial, independent firms - make it a natural fit."

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...

Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
