Pay-As-You-Go Pricing Enables Service Provider to Meet Customer Needs On a Flexible, On-Demand Basis
CAMPBELL, Calif. - Nimsoft, a CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) company, today announced that Lead IT Consulting has deployed Nimsoft On Demand across its cloud-based services infrastructure.
Nimsoft On Demand virtually eliminates the need for Lead IT to procure, configure and manage its own monitoring infrastructure. This cloud-based model will enable Lead IT to dramatically reduce capital and operating expenses, while providing it with highly flexible monitoring capabilities that integrate seamlessly with its broader cloud-based business strategy.
Nimsoft On Demand also supports Lead IT's business strategy by offering pay-as-you-go pricing, which allows Lead IT to be agile and align its costs with current customer demand.
Nimsoft On Demand will enable Lead IT to provide clients with insight into the health and performance of their networks and applications on a 24x7 basis via intuitive, fully customizable monitoring portals and elastic portlets.
Lead IT evaluated several monitoring products before selecting Nimsoft On Demand, and found that Nimsoft On Demand had the best resource coverage, and was the easiest to deploy, configure and use among the products it reviewed. Its highly intuitive client service dashboards make it possible for Lead IT to save time and money by virtually eliminating help desk and service calls.
"Nimsoft On Demand is the only monitoring solution that provides the richness of detail and the clarity of data presentation our clients require to feel in control of their cloud environments," said Bob Deasy, Lead IT's chief strategist. "Nimsoft was also the only vendor who could deliver these capabilities under a pricing structure rationalized for the cloud market."
Lead IT adds to the growing number of managed service providers utilizing Nimsoft to more effectively and cost-efficiently meet the needs of clients that--because of market challenges and uncertainties - are demanding greater value and flexibility from their IT vendors.
"By freeing up their time and resources, Nimsoft On Demand allows managed service providers like Lead IT to focus on core competencies and business development," said Gary Read, Nimsoft CEO. "Our dedication to supporting cloud-based models is especially helpful to service providers that need to position themselves for growth while rigorously controlling costs."
Nimsoft On Demand is compatible with a wide range of public cloud environments - including Salesforce(TM), Amazon Web Services(TM), Rackspace Cloud(TM), Microsoft Windows Azure(TM) and Google App(TM) Engine.
