Paris, March 26th, 2012 – Prodware, a B2B software, integration and hosting provider, has chosen SecurActive Performance Vision to provide its customers with a cloud network and application performance management service.
With over 17 500 customers in France and abroad, Prodware already accounts many organizations using its Cloud offering, for both applications and infrastructure services. These customers completely outsource their IT administration through a “pay per use” service.
For Cyrille Duvivier, Infrastructure Business Unit Director, « Our Cloud customers need visibility, control and reporting on the performance of their network and hosted applications to understand their traffic globally and in details. To meet this demand, Prodware has implemented a Cloud APM (Application Performance Management) service. The customer will then have clear data on both the quality of their WAN network and the performance of their applications. Prodware’s expert teams will efficiently diagnose and optimize the infrastructure of their customers.”
For Boris Rogier, Managing Director of SecurActive, « The launch of this APM as a service offer extends the APM market to companies who choose to outsource the management of IT. This is a new development for our business. We believe that a significant portion of the APM market will rally this model in the coming years. In this perspective, SecurActive considered it important to offer partners like Prodware with means to integrate an APM offering into their Cloud service portfolio. Few players on the NPM and APM markets provide such tools. This offer represents both a new channel for SecurActive and a competitive advantage in our market.”
Cyrille Duvivier adds that “The choice of SecurActive Performance Vision as a technological basis for our APM as a service has quickly become obvious. First, we already had a productive partner relationship with SecurActive (in relation with their traditional APM appliance offering); second, after a complete analysis of the APM market, we quickly realized the relevance of the Performance Vision offering:
- The user interface is simple to use, easily understandable by our customers, which is not the case of most APM tools;
- SecurActive Performance Vision’s offering is one of the few which is suitable to build a cloud service.
Finally, we found in SecurActive a flexible partner which helped us decline the offer in a way which is adpated to our customers and without any constraints on the structure of our offering.”
