SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 24, 2009) - Innotas, a leading on-demand IT Governance provider, today announced that its end-of-Q2 bookings came in at 135 percent of its bookings over the same period last year. Government continues to be an especially healthy industry of growth for Innotas, followed by health care, insurance and financial services.

"In these difficult economic times, CIOs are challenged to do more with less," said Keith Carlson, Innotas president and CEO. "In order to do so, they need tools that enable them to balance their valuable resources across strategic projects and sustaining operations. Innotas provides both an easy path toward better alignment of resources, applications and the IT project portfolio, and a mechanism to manage, analyze and adjust those dials on a daily basis. This is in part why our growth trajectory has been so strong despite the economic downturn."
