COPENHAGEN, Denmark, June 20 /PRNewswire/ — PremiTech, maker of the award winning Performance Guard(R) end-user-based systems management platform, today announced the immediate availability of Performance Guard Software as a Service (Performance Guard SaaS). The new offering enables customers to obtain an endpoint-based systems management solution as a monthly service. The offering includes a low, one-month consulting fee for installation through PremiTech partners so that customers can have their new service up and running in two days and achieve results in the first month.
PremiTech's Performance Guard represents a new breed of solutions focused on systems management from the end user perspective. Only from the endpoint – PCs and devices on the external edge of the enterprise – can IT staff truly understand the multiplicity of events which bog down the network. With today's announcement, PremiTech continues its leadership by providing its flagship solution as a service that can be implemented and achieve measurable results in as little as a month.
"Our new Performance Guard SaaS offering greatly reduces the time and headaches associated with installing new systems management software," said Kim Wiencken, Chairman, PremiTech. "With a fixed investment of $10,000, a VAR or an SI partner can set up the system and present the first set of reports in as little as two days. After the first month, customers pay a fixed monthly rate for Performance Guard SaaS, which enables companies to ascertain exactly how all IT systems serve all users, and greatly reduce overall network costs."
With the new SaaS offering, customers can analyze all the critical systems and applications, and obtain a single performance report chart for each. These charts are standardized across systems and applications enabling IT management to get a consistent view into how the business critical IT systems and applications perform over time at the point that matters the most – the business user. It also covers generating the core reports showing how all the critical systems service the users.
PremiTech customers have already seen results from using Performance Guard's combined services offering. More customers have signed up in the last two months to this service than ever recorded in a single quarter in the company's history. All these customers have wanted to extend their existing systems management solution in order to gain a critical total picture into their core IT systems from the user's perspective.
The SaaS version of Performance Guard is marketed through a new channel program. Trifork, a new consulting partner of PremiTech, has already engaged with several customers delivering the critical 1st month installation, setup and reporting services. "With the new SaaS offering from PremiTech, partners benefit from a consulting engagement with clients beyond the normal installation and setup fee. We can build stronger long-term relationships and act as a trusted partner to the customer through this program," said Joern Larsen, CEO of Trifork A/S, an innovative software development and consulting organization.
Performance Guard is the leader in a new breed of Systems Management solutions that are based on the actual IT service as it is experienced by the business. It monitors all users and all IT services all the time from the users desktop – as opposed to traditional data center centric systems management. The result is a set of information that shows how each system and application perform to the critical users.
The new Performance Guard SaaS offering is immediately available.
