A Look Back and a Look Forward By @ITInvolve | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

A Look Back and a Look Forward

By Matthew Selheimer

‘tis that time of year to look back on all that’s been accomplished and look forward to what’s in store for the next year.

As we reflect on 2014, there are quite a few achievements we are proud of. On the recognition front, ITinvolve was selected as the best-in-class solution for change, configuration, and release management in an independent review by The ITSM Review. We were also recognized as an emerging vendor by Computer Reseller News and were short-listed as the “Most Promising Start Up” by The Cloud Awards. Not bad for a company that was founded just a few short years ago in 2011, and building upon our recognition as a “Cool Vendor” by Gartner and another best-in-class award for Knowledge Management in 2013.

2014 was also a great year for product innovation at ITinvolve. In April, we announced new offerings to improve DevOps and IT project collaboration with ITinvolve Agility Manager and to increase understanding of and take actions to resolve configuration drift with ITinvolve Drift Manager. Along with ITinvolve Workspaces and ITinvolve Service Manager, we offer the most robust set of enterprise-class software built on the market-leading PaaS Salesforce1 – a fact that we are very proud of.

This year also saw the IT management software marketplace evolve as organizations expanded pilot DevOps efforts and came to realize that sharepoint sites, spreadsheets, and emails just don’t cut it for enabling enterprise DevOps collaboration. In fact, Gartner called out ITinvolve and only two other solution providers at the end of November as the only companies enabling the necessary “collaborative workspace to support I&O objectives.” And more broadly, the market category of Social IT, which we believe should be recast as Collaborative IT, has moved out of the “innovation trigger” phase (i.e. early adopters) and into the “peak of inflated expectations” (i.e. early mainstream) according to Gartner’s 2014 Hype Cycle for IT Operations Management.

So as we bid adieu to 2014, there is much to be proud of yet we are even more excited by what’s to come in 2015. If you are ready for a game-changing approach to managing IT that puts people at the center, then reach out and engage with us – we’re always interested in talking to transformational IT leaders.
