ITinvolve Named a Gartner 'Cool Vendor' in IT Operations Management

Gartner Defines a Cool Vendor as an Enterprise Offering Technologies or Solutions That Are Innovative, Impactful and Intriguing

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 25, 2013) -  Just over a year since its public launch, ITinvolve, the leading innovator of IT collaboration solutions, today announced it has been named a Cool Vendor in IT Operations Management by Gartner, Inc., one of the world's leading information technology research and advisory companies. Gartner defines a Cool Vendor as an enterprise that offers technologies or solutions that are innovative, impactful and intriguing.

According to its Cool Vendors in IT Operations Management report (J. Brooks, J. Greene et al., 18 April 2013): IT operations leaders are looking for new ways to deliver more value to the business. Tools for effective decision making can improve the infrastructure and operations (I&O) team's ability to allocate resources to the right types of activities. The Cool Vendors featured in this year's research introduce social approaches and advanced analytics to address the need for I&O to respond, communicate, and ultimately, deliver better value to the business.

"We are delighted to be recognized as a Gartner 'Cool Vendor' in IT Operations Management," said ITinvolve CEO Logan Wray. "Our customers know first-hand the innovative value we provide by helping them capture and apply the collective knowledge of their IT organization for improved collaboration and decision making. Gartner's recognition of this innovation is an important milestone for our growing company."

ITinvolve took the IT management market by storm with its February 2012 launch of ITinvolve for Social Knowledge Management. In May and September 2012, ITinvolve demonstrated its ability to rapidly deliver fresh and new innovation by adding social and collaborative IT process support for change, incident, request, and problem management, as well as the core service desk function. In February 2013, ITinvolve introduced its Winter '13 release, enabling ITinvolve for Social Knowledge Management to easily complement and turbo-charge customers' IT management solutions already in use.

Unlike any other IT management offering, ITinvolve is built from the ground up to be social and collaborative -- automatically involving the right people and presenting them with the necessary knowledge to make fast and informed decisions. ITinvolve finally makes it easy to capture, relate, and share IT knowledge using a 'divide and conquer approach' that enables IT professionals to add what they know and build on the contributions of others along with information documented in existing systems. Combining this collective IT knowledge with unprecedented visualization of key relationships and dependencies, ITinvolve fits naturally into how IT people work and fosters new levels of collaboration for a wide-range of IT activities including: change planning and execution, incident resolution, service request fulfillment, recurring problem remediation, disaster recovery and business continuity, application release management, DevOps, data center infrastructure management, and more.

ITinvolve's innovation has been heralded by IT professionals, respected IT knowledge and service management organizations, leading industry research analysts, social media influencers and technology media as a game-changer for IT management software. In February, Pink Elephant, a worldwide leader in ITIL and IT Service Management (ITSM) consulting, recognized ITinvolve as a finalist for its coveted Innovation of the Year award.
