Exceptional Software Strategies’ Ray Bowen demystifies the cloud

Cloud computing has transformed the way many agencies do business. But several years into the cloud revolution and some agencies still struggle.

Ray Bowen, the president and CEO of Exceptional Software Strategies, joins Industry Chatter with Francis Rose to demystify cloud computing.

From Bowen’s official bio:

Mr. Bowen has worked in the Defense Contractor Industry for more than two decades. He joined with a former colleague, Paul Stasko, to found an independent consulting firm. Within a few years, that firm became Exceptional Software Strategies, Inc. Under Mr. Bowen’s leadership, Exceptional has sustained yearly growth in the area’s highly competitive IT market – it expanded from the two founders in 1996 to a company with multiple contracts across the intelligence community. Exceptional is now ranked in the top 10 largest minority-owned businesses in the Baltimore area.


Mr. Bowen holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from the University of Maryland, and received his Certified Information Systems Security Professional certification from the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium.
