“Leaving aside the proliferating startups in ServiceMesh’s sector, Cisco, Dell, VMware and the Big Four enterprise systems management vendors can’t lose the battle for cloud management without losing the war – and their lives.”
This is what 451 analyst Rachel Chalmers wrote when describing the competition to ServiceMesh’s Agility Platform 9.0, and just one reason of many I’m so excited to publicly unveil ServiceMesh Agility Platform 9.0. Since we believe neither startups in the cloud management space, nor the big vendors mentioned here have the capabilities we do to accelerate the software release process through hybrid cloud (nor will they any time in the near future), we feel this quote is especially insightful.
We’ve been working hard to add a variety of new features and functionality to Agility Platform and I’ve never seen our development team so excited about getting a new product into your hands. More than working on features, though, we have been building a platform for business innovation/business success. Talking to customers and prospects who are leaders in their industries, we have heard time and time again about the need to drive business agility in order to compete more aggressively in the market. Large enterprises are talking about competition from more nimble market entrants who are unencumbered by industry regulation or legacy systems and processes and as a result are able to take the fast lane to first-mover status.
Knowing that Global 2000 enterprises need a platform to drive business innovation that helps them move at the speed of the market was the motivation behind Agility Platform 9.0.
