Leading third party sourcing advisor, Alsbridge plc, has recognized an
IT transformation programme implemented by IPsoft and Cygate as one of
the most innovative use of automation technology in Europe. The
Alsbridge Innovation Award highlights and celebrates the tremendous
business impact achieved through the successful deployment of IPsoft’s
autonomic IT management solution, IPcenter, across the Swedish service
provider’s IT infrastructure.

fourfold without increasing its cost base. In parallel, the speed,
quality and consistency of IT operations increased dramatically. Today

accelerate the speed with which we can onboard clients and execute
changes to keep pace with dynamic business needs,” says Mats Magiste,
