(Gawkwire.com) THINKstrategies announced that LogicMonitor has been named the winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards program, which is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits being delivered by today’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.
The BoSS Awards program was announced in January 2009 to bring attention to SaaS companies that are producing tangible business benefits for specific user organizations. These benefits include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability.
LogicMonitor provides automated monitoring, trending and alerting for the entire data center infrastructure from a single, affordable SaaS-based solution. LogicMonitor’s Active Discovery engine performs ongoing discovery of new devices and device changes, eliminating the need for continuous monitoring configuration.
A case example of LogicMonitor’s measurable business benefits is AppFolio (www.appfolio.com), which creates complete, web-based, SaaS solutions for multiple vertical markets. AppFolio uses LogicMonitor to monitor all parts of its infrastructure, including web servers, switches, and back-end databases, as well as to manage the alerting mechanism for on-call ops personnel. LogicMonitor has been particularly helpful in triage situations and identifying potential performance issues before they affect customers. As a result, AppFolio estimates that it has been able to defer the cost of a full-time SysAdmin hire, estimated at $120,000 a year, by using LogicMonitor.
It is for these reasons that LogicMonitor has been named a Best of SaaS Showplace Award winner. A summary of the company’s winning BoSS Award submission can be found http://www.saas-showplace.com/awardSummary.php?key=1667.
"We are extremely pleased to be recognized by THINKstrategies and the SaaS Showplace for the business value of our SaaS solution,” said Steve Francis, LogicMonitor founder and CEO. “With the pace of change in today’s datacenters, automation is the only way to ensure all devices are monitored, and monitored completely–and we’re proud to offer such a service in a way that really makes a difference to our clients’ bottom lines."
"Optimizing the performance of a data center has become imperative in order to meet the escalating needs of an organization,” stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, the founder of the SaaS Showplace and Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Showplace. "LogicMonitor’s SaaS solution enables organizations to achieve this objective while reducing the costs of data center management."
