IndependenceIT Sees Strong Momentum and Over 330% Growth in 2014 with Cloud Workspace Suite

IndependenceIT today announced several business milestones, including key partnerships, channel ecosystem expansion and impressive growth over the past 12 months as demand for its Cloud Workspace® software exceeded expectations. Leading the growth metrics for 2014, seat count for IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace Suite rose more than 330% year-over-year, easily beating IDC’s forecast for compound annual growth rate (CAGR) forecast for IT Cloud Services of 26.4%, which is already many times that of the IT industry overall1.

With the increasing demand for mobile and device-independent access to applications and data, IT service providers are seeking competitive solutions to capitalize on these requirements and further improve infrastructure. There are also appeals by the business community for cloud services that bring greater scalability and agility to the workplace and allow users to work anywhere, anytime and on any device. The adoption of IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace Suite is a testament to the company’s competitive advantage in a high-growth market as organizations weigh the options in this space.

Cloud Workspace Suite (CWS) is a cloud and hypervisor agnostic services enablement platform for the delivery of applications and desktop-as-as service (DaaS) that allows IT service providers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and enterprise IT departments to provision, manage and monitor complete workspaces in the cloud, transforming business operations by delivering applications, desktops and entire corporate IT systems as a high-performance, secure cloud service.

2014 has been an exceptional year for the company as the number of booked seats increased substantially over the previous year to reach new heights, boosting top line sales by more than 70%. Additionally, the channel focused cloud workspace software developer doubled its service provider partner ecosystem year-over-year, boosting the availability of its technology to organizations around the world, and introduced several new infrastructure partners including Microsoft Azure, Artisan Infrastructure, GCI Managed Cloud Solutions and Google Compute Engine.

“Traditionally, barriers to success for desktop virtualization have included complexity as well as a multitude of moving parts. For those implementations comprised of multiple vendors and products, components include the hypervisor, storage, desktop virtualization vendor platform, provisioning mechanism, and much more,” said Jo Harder, Senior Virtualization Analyst, The Virtualization Practice. “IndependenceIT has succeeded in simplifying desktop virtualization to the extent that the full set of components is entirely incorporated into the unified platform and desktop2.”

“Identified as one of the Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2014, workspace-as-a-service is changing the way IT is consumed for the betterment of businesses of every size,” said Seth Bostock, CEO, IndependenceIT. “Cloud Workspace Suite was designed from the beginning with the service provider in mind. This has established CWS as a marquee platform for service providers, offering tremendous advantages from a management and cost perspective. As a result, adoption has been impressive and our forecasts for future growth are extremely positive.”

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
