SAManage Customer Base Quadruples in 2012

Market Acceptance Confirmed, SaaS Multi-Tenancy is a Key Driver

CARY, NORTH CAROLINA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- SAManage, the leader in cloud-based, integrated Service Desk and IT Asset Management software today announced that their customer base has quadrupled over the past 12 months. The customer base is diversified across 36 countries and multiple industry sectors, the most prominent being IT/Business Services and Education/Not for Profit as the leaders.

"Last year we determined that our SaaS IT Service Desk and Asset Management solution was ready for prime time", said Doron Gordon, CEO and Founder. "Our carefully selected engineering team created the SAManage rapid, continuous enhancement model that delivers customer requested enhancement every week. All of our customers are always on the latest release and it requires zero effort on their part. No servers to maintain, no upgrades to install, no lost customizations caused by version incompatibility. We do all of this and our customers love it." The number of employees has tripled to support the larger number of customers and their product requirements and is expected to double itself this year.

On the product side SAManage introduced many new features. Most importantly the extended Service Desk, enabling departments other than IT to further streamline support processes and improve communications between employees and the service providers, such as the HR department, facility management or procurement team. SAManage also introduced improved Service Level Management, Customer Satisfaction, warranty information and email customization among many other features and functionalities. The product integration with several key players such as Google Apps, Chatter, Zendesk, Salesforce, OKTA, OneLogin and Zapier was tightened.

"The product infrastructure now supports larger quantities of data", said Nir Tzur, VP Engineering, "we increased the number of assets, software and incidents dramatically and our infrastructure is ready to scale much higher."

While SAManage reports that its managed assets tripled, Dell still leads with close to 50%, HP with 18%, and Lenovo and Apple with 9% and 6% respectively. On the software OS, Windows XP and Windows 7 unsurprisingly dominate the numbers.

Encouraged by the customer validation, SAManage opened its first sales offices in Cary, NC and Rotterdam, The Netherlands. "Customer acceptance and a strong belief that our sales and support model was scalable caused us to make this important move", said SAManage President, Darroll Buytenhuys, "Hiring a sales and support team and opening the sales office to better support our customers was the catalyst and drove this impressive growth."

Importantly, SAManage has successfully replaced legacy on-premise products from BMC Software, HP, CA and Symantec, to name a few. Here is what some SAManage customers are saying:


"The service was very easy to deploy and I knew that within a few hours I   
would be ready to deploy to my users."                                      
Mark Rodgers, Director Advanced Solutions, SpinSix                          
                                                                            
"The result is greater efficiency, no worries about software upgrades, and  
no need to run "yet another server."                                        
Doug Carbaugh, Integral Consulting                                          
                                                                            
"It was quickly evident that the SAManage solution satisfied all functions  
on my wish list. And it was really easy to use and implement."              
Jens Danielsen IT Manager Saint Tropez                                      
                                                                            
"I can more easily show management my workload, and my productivity. My     
users can hold me accountable for my actions. It's also easy to show that I 
can't support them if they don't open a ticket."                            
Collum Davenport, Insight Editions                                          
                                                                            
"The little things all added up - the mobile support...QR and BAR codes...  
custom fields. We have to come to admire the software. It's as elegant as   
asset management gets."                                                     
Ben Miller, Knox County School District in Tennessee

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
