The year of 2018 has been quite a wonderful year for Zenoss Inc., the market leader in software-defined IT operations.
Earlier this year, the company announced that its chairman and CEO Greg Stock was a finalist for the 2018 Entrepreneur of the Year Award in Central Texas.
“I’m honored to have been selected as an EY Entrepreneur of the Year finalist,” Stock said. “This distinction acknowledges the tremendous team we have at Zenoss and our relentless focus on customer success. Through this program, I continue to be enlightened and inspired by its alumni, who lead global, well-known companies facing similar challenges and opportunities.”
Now, as the year closes, the company has been recognized as a finalist in the 2018-19 Cloud Awards in the category of Best Software as a Service – USA. The Cloud Awards is an international program which recognizes and honors industry leaders, innovators and organizational transformation in cloud computing.
The Zenoss Cloud is the first SaaS-based intelligent IT operations management platform that streams and normalizes all machine data, uniquely enabling the emergence of context for preventing service disruptions in complex, modern IT environments. It is powered by the Google Cloud Platform and leverages the most powerful machine learning and real-time analytics of streaming data to give companies the ability to scale and adapt to the business dynamics.
“Zenoss Cloud enables both large and small organizations to leverage machine learning for complete IT observability, enabling them to prevent IT outages and optimize the performance of multi-cloud and on-premises environments,” said Mike Lunt, Vice President of Engineering at Zenoss. “Being recognized as a finalist for the 2018-19 Cloud Awards is a great validation of our continued dedication to our customers and to our reputation as an industry innovator.”
“As we reach the end of 2018 and the cloud becomes increasingly common currency, with its key importance in leveraging business goals becoming synonymous with business software and services itself,” said Larry Johnson, Cloud Awards organizer, “we have seen submissions from countless vertical industries alongside cloud-specific infrastructure and security applications. In such a competitive global marketplace, the need to not only use these technologies but to continue to innovate has grown ever-stronger. This year, the judges have had a more difficult time than ever in deciding which entrants should move forward to the next stage, and every submission displayed unique points of merit.”
