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

In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect at GE, and Ibrahim Gokcen, who leads GE's advanced IoT analytics, focused on the Internet of Things / Industrial Internet and how to make it operational for business end-users. Learn about the challenges posed by machine and sensor data and how to marry it with enterprise data. They also discussed the tips and tricks to provide the Industrial Internet as an end-user consumable service using Big Data Analytics and Industrial Cloud.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute.
