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.”

But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
