xMatters Delivers Successful Second Annual Client Training Forum

Over 100 Thought Leaders Attend to Discuss the Need for Relevant Information That Finds You When It Matters Most

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2010) -  xMatters, inc., the relevance engine company, successfully converged current xMatters clients, thought leaders and partners for the second annual xMatters (alarmpoint) client training forum and Relevance Revolution in Manhattan, New York. Over 100 clients attended the event, including Banner Health, HBO, Charles Schwab and TD Ameritrade.

With client case stories from Comcast, MITRE, Cash America, Manpower and AAA, this event enabled xMatters clients to hear how these businesses are utilizing relevance engines to reduce costs, increase efficiencies and minimize downtime. These case stories also provided a forum where clients could interact, sharing unique best practices, integration ideas and use cases utilizing relevance engines with other applications and systems.

The forum provided interactive panel discussions where leaders from the xMatters product management and technical teams took the stage giving clients the opportunity to brainstorm innovative ideas where relevance engines could be improved and extended to help people be more effective. These interactive sessions contribute to the foundation layer of the xMatters product roadmap.

"Bringing together such a dynamic group of clients is key to delivering the best relevance engine solutions through innovative brainstorming, networking and troubleshooting," said Troy McAlpin, CEO, xMatters. "Seeing so many thought leaders in one room, representing different companies, industries and departments provided valuable feedback and participation critical to the success of xMatters."

Garter analyst, David Williams, the expert in the alert management space, also presented on current ITSM industry trends as well as the importance of the new relevance engine technology. 

"Enterprises have the opportunity to change and improve the way they communicate with employees and customers and how IT professionals interact with the technology that manages their IT infrastructure," said David Williams, Research VP, Gartner. "To achieve a greater proactive management state, avoid disasters, reduce mean-time-to-repair and effectively manage IT processes, IT organizations should consider the use of alert notification tools that deliver both targeted relevant information in real-time and provide communication back to the tools that support the IT infrastructure."

The xMatters Relevance Revolution also featured sponsorships from key partners including Evergreen Consulting, Techport Thirteen, IIS and Research in Motion (RIM).
